is a sci-fi series based on the novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan. It's set in the distant future, when humans have used alien technology to store their personalities in discs called "cortical stacks" emebedded in the back of their necks. When someone dies, as long as the disc is intact their personality can be put into a new body, or "skin", allowing the very rich to change their appearance at will or remain young using younger clones of themselves.
Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman) is killed, only to wake 250 years later, when a member of the wealthy elite wants him to solve a murder.
premiered in February 2018 and season 1 currently available for streaming on Netflix. Have you seen it, and if so, what do you think of it?
A cortical stack. Screen cap. Fair use.
I thought it was so stupid - the last episode was beyond idiotic. My husband on the other hand, enjoyed it....
The last one seems to have been made with fans of Farscape in mind. Many nods to other shows in passing, which they don't explain or make a thing of so they wouldn't make sense unless you know where they come from.
Maybe that was it - just seemed like they got a 5 year old to come up with the idea and then 'pull the rug out' in the biggest non-surprise ever...
A few of my friends liked it and I kept saying 'didn'y you think it was laboured and obvious?' and they said know. I just kept rolling my eyes are all the 'surprise!' moments.
That would be No not know!
