Currently halfway through and I just want to tell everybody already: Go check this out!!! Edit: Just finished it. It's truly a remarkable series! Beautiful CGI images, although the keen eye might occasionally spot some glitches and errors, it was truly eye candy most of the time. The story ending [spoiler] feels like the show might be going for some kind of super/genius heroes team,[/spoiler] but in a way that really makes you enthusiastic to see what more they are gonna do, after this epic first season story. Looking at the detective arc of the story, I incidentally saw Sherlock-genius schemes forming and was delighted to see this - although I missed much more than I could have thought - all came together in a marvelous way! Also for the lovers of a good love story there is more than enough to enjoy. Containing numerous twists, brought in throughout the whole storyline. Giving you plenty enough of satisfaction, excitement and anticipation on this area... There is plenty of more to find out than the above teasers, but then I would be actually spoiling a lot. Those are just some of the many reasons why you should watch it! ;-) All concluded: A great new sci-fi [spoiler]hero[/spoiler] story, with much more up its sleeve than you would expect!

Very disappointed so far. Seems like they just threw a bunch of ideas at the wall hoping something stuck. Four episodes in and didn't care to finish

A dark and interesting speculation on a wold long past the singularity, where human consciousness can be downloaded and plugged into different bodies (or sleeves). What becomes of humanity in a world with such power and an ever widening gulf between wealth and poverty?

avatar

They should make Ortega the main character and change the show's title to _Altered Cabrón_.

Boring, mystery dreck disguised as sci-fi to try to lure Blade Runner fans. #ABANDONSHOW #ONEEPISODEISENOUGH

Before watching, I expected this would be a good cyberpunk, but no... In reality, Altered Carbon is weak, extremely weak even. To the point I actually have to say that I would suspect the majority like this series based on the reason why it has an M-rating, which is the nudity. Sure, it doesn't follow the amazing books of Richard K. Morgan in quite some ways, but far more importantly, it is actually quite boring. I could give a long explanation, but I know I can expect people to be against me for saying this regardless, so let me just be short about it. Among the problems are: scenes that feel unfinished, too many filler scenes, sloppy acting, and explanations that feel to be repeating forever throughout episodes. Also, missing the understanding of the importance appearance, like the impossible way how certain wounds are apparently healing throughout the episodes... Of course, it has also good parts, like the amazing special effects. But to me personally, the bad parts outweigh the good parts. That are my 2 cents about Altered Carbon. Maybe you don't like it either, maybe you do like it. This is just my opinion.

This is just a passable sci-fi drama. The acting is sub par, the dialog are worse, the camera angles are pedestrian and the story line is boring. If you have nothing else to watch, you might be interested in trying to watch this. But even the ending feels like the director knew what he had on his hands, and was expecting this show to be cancelled, which wouldn't surprise me.

started out so nice .. then his sister appeared and everything went down the drain.

I immediately regreted watching this, the show is so lazily writen with unlikable generic characters one of which commits multiple counts of police brutality and body theaft just to get the plot going. That wasnt ok in 24 after 9/11 do the writers really believe its gonna be acceptable now after the black lives matter movement. Also the dialoge is garbage.

I think this could turn out great for a second season for now i'm staying at fair. For me cut way back on the nudity. I don't need to see every female with more then 1 second screen time naked, their are other kinds of entertainment for that.

Search for TV shows...

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
