This one is aiming hard at cult status and I'm 100 per cent certain it will get there. I'm thinking this one will be quite a small cult, though, relatively speaking.
Part of the thrill of "Altered Carbon," the new sci-fi series from Netflix, is figuring out the rules of the strange future universe we've been dropped into.
Aesthetics and questionable casting decisions aside, Altered carbon, whilst having some very cool ideas, is more or less a who-dun-it crime story. All that well trodden ground can feel a little disappointing.
It's a good time for sci-fi/action fans, but maybe in a future season it could resurrect itself as something a little more substantial.
Altered Carbon trades thoughtful writing and design for a blinkered focus on polemic and prefab dystopia.
