“In the distant future, human consciousness can be digitized and downloaded into different bodies. Brought back to life after 250 years by Laurens Bancroft the richest man on Earth, ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs must solve Bancroft’s attempted murder for the chance to live again in a world he doesn’t recognize.“
Having seen a couple of the trailers for this show I think I love it already and it’s not released until 2nd February. I can only rely so far upon other reviews and here’s a snapshot of what Den Of Geek had to say:
“With plenty of action and even a bit of humour — you’ll want to buckle up for some dark comedy during Takeshi’s visit to an artificial intelligence hotel in the premiere — Altered Carbon is the perfect television entry point for cyberpunk fans. Although the series sometimes feels more like a feature movie drawn out over its ten hours, the world is a joy to explore during that time. The characters are immediately engaging despite a lack of complexity, a fault that could be remedied by a second season.”
Let’s see if I agree or not but I am very hopeful.
The show is described a lot as cyperpunk so the songs should match that high octane futuristic feel of the episodes. The song from the trailers which could also be the theme song is ‘The Beginning Of The End‘ by Nine Inch Nails.
I’m so looking forward to hearing what other songs can be added to the list!
