    Altered Carbon (netflix)

    I read the book. My wife didn't.

    We both thought the first episode was pretty good.

    I thought it was pretty true to the book in spirit and story, such as I remember the book at least.

    Visually, very very very Blade Runner. Well done, but not super cool and new looking.

    Watched 3 so far. If you like SF, especially cyberpunkish things, give it a shot.

    Finished it. Briefly (so assume this thread will start delving into spoilers after this post)...

    In the end, I have to give it an "OK". Not great, not a waste of my time, but just OK.

    I would have preferred it just be SF noir detective, like the book. Those parts were pretty good. The rest of it, the other 50%+? Not so much.

    I just received the paper back from Amazon a couple days ago and digging into now. Thanks for the heads-up.
