Altered Carbon
 
TV. 2018.

A shock and awe assault on the senses, and on the sensibilities of identity that we have always taken for granted, but are now unraveling in the face of new technologies. 

I was almost turned off by the first episode as the glitz and "action" threatened to drown out a clear, compelling narrative. But the glitz gives way to an intelligent and imaginative science fiction detective  story that uses puts everything we think about identity under the microscope.

Enter a world where the soul is nothing but a sequence of numbers, and bodies are disposable sleeves. This is more than a provocative, clever whodunnit.
