Altered Carbon

Last night I watched episode one of the Netflix show Altered Carbon. The series takes place over 350 years in the future, in the year 2384. In the future, people’s consciousnesses are contained in “stacks”, storage devices attached to the back of a person’s neck. Physical bodies are turned into “sleeves”, mere disposable vessels. Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a violent mercenary, wakes up 250 years after his sleeve is killed, and he is given the choice to either spend the rest of his life in prison for his crimes, or help solve the murder of the wealthiest man in the world (James Purefoy). The first episode consists of Kovacs trying to navigate this new world, and deciding whether he will help solve the murder. I may not have understood everything that went on, but overall, I enjoyed the episode.

I would have probably watched two episodes, but I walked into the kitchen only to realize that Isabella was out of food. Why doesn’t she tell me these things? So I had to run out and get her some cat food. That took up just enough time that I couldn’t watch a second episode.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
