It's very rare for a TV show to come along and pull me into its world as well as Altered Carbon did. Previously I can only name House, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Preacher and American Gods to do the same. But things have come a long way since House and Dexter was a thing, especially as far as the production quality of TV shows goes.
All over the internet I got lots of mixed feedback for the show before I actually started watching it, with many stating that it got boring after N episodes and never quite picked up again. I did not experience that, at all. After the first two episodes I was hooked.
If you're into very violent scenes that actually show blood and wounds, you're in for a treat. I mean, at one point the guy got his legs burned off. Fucking torched. Can you imagine that? The entire thing was executed damn near perfectly as far as my opinion goes.
You can see a lot of female parts there and I don't mean just breasts. Also, unlike lots of TV shows that are kind-of sexist when it comes to that, you can see a male parts as well. While I'm not a fan of male parts myself, I did like that they tried to level that.
Overall the show was very well done with film-grade fight scenes and visuals and had a very Blade Runner-y vibe, which added so much to it. Sort of an emotionless future with dull background and vivid neon lights. I'd also say the soundtrack fit the show very well. Definitely a show I recommend watching.
