Altered Carbon is based on the 2002 novel by Richard K Morgan. Set in a future where consciousness can be digitally stored and transferred between bodies, called sleeves, Takeshi Kovacs, played by Joel Kinnaman and Will Yun Lee, wakes up 250 years after his last death and is tasked by Laurens Bancroft, played by James Purefoy, to solve a murder. To do this Takeshi must enter the world of immortal elites called Methuselahs, or Meths for short.

-----------

When we last left them, Kovacs finally found out whose sleeve he’s been borrowing. Then Ortega is attacked in the precinct’s elevator by the Ghostwalker who is trying to free Dimi the Twin.

  • Laurens Bancroft impregnated Lizzie Elliot
  • Miriam almost killed Lizzie, terminated the pregnancy, then made Lizzie insane through Wei Clinic
  • This lead to Reileen forcing Miriam to drug Laurens
  • A drugged Laurens RD’s a hooker
  • This makes Mary Lou Henchy jump from Head in the Clouds
  • Henchy is coded as Neo-C, so Laurens influences the UN to vote against Resolution 653
  • In his guilt, Laurens kills himself before the backup to forget what he had done

 

Laurens is arrested for RD

Miriam is arrested for sleeve death and forceful termination of pregancy

Reileen is RD’d by Takeshi who shot her in the stack after infecting her backups with Rawlings Virus

As you can tell, things are changing around here. We’re going to be keeping the same name, because we’re all partial to it, but we won’t be exclusive to Netflix anymore. Instead, we’re going to cover original streaming television shows which premiere in single blocks...in other words if you can binge it and it’s original to online services, we’ll talk about it.

But first...we watch a lot of TV and movies.

Chris is being introduced to the wide world of Anime.

Javier watched a documentary on Netflix about reined cow horse competition called Down the Fence.

---------

Jean-Claude Van Johnson stars global martial arts & actor Jean-Claude Van Damme playing "Jean-Claude Van Damme", a global martial arts & film sensation, also operating under the simple alias of "Johnson" as the world's best undercover private contractor. Retired for years, a chance encounter with a lost love brings him back to the game. This time, he'll be deadlier than ever. Probably.
