Now we arrive at the good shows. Altered Carbon is an epic sci-fi drama set 300 years in the future, in San Francisco’s Bay City. In this version of the future, humans are able to extract their consciousness into a device, which is then implanted into their spines. When a human body dies, the cortical stack can be removed and placed into another body, essentially making humans immortal. The story follows Takeshi Kovacs, who can start a new life if he can solve the murder of his employer. This show is quite gripping, but there’s a lot going on, so be sure to focus.
