Hello my dear readers,
Usually, before this Coronavirus situation, during the weekends, we always went out, walking and enjoying Singapore.
But now we’ve become couch potatoes watching Netflix 😉
We’ve recently seen Altered Carbon, an American cyberpunk TV series, based on a 2002 novel.
Here the Synopsis (taken from Wikipedia):
The series takes place over 360 years in the future, with most episodes set in the year 2384, in a futuristic metropolis known as Bay City. In the future, a person’s memories and consciousness can be decanted in a disk-shaped device called a cortical stack, which is implanted in the vertebrae at the back of the neck. These storage devices are of alien design and have been reverse engineered and mass-produced. Physical human or synthetic bodies are called “sleeves” and stacks can be transferred to new bodies after death, but a person can still be killed if their stack is destroyed. While this theoretically means anyone can live forever, only the wealthiest, known as “Meths” in reference to Methuselah, have the means to do so through clones and remote storage of their consciousness in satellites.
Takeshi Kovacs, a political operative with mercenary skills, is the sole surviving soldier of the Envoys, a rebel group defeated in an uprising against the new world order. In the first season, set 250 years after the Envoys are destroyed, his stack is pulled out of prison by 300-year-old Meth Laurens Bancroft, one of the wealthiest men in the settled worlds. Bancroft offers him the chance to solve a murder—Bancroft’s own—to get a new shot at life. In the second season, set 30 years later, Kovacs, now in a new sleeve, continues to search for his lost love and Envoy leader Quellcrist Falconer.
And here the Altered Carbon Season 1 Trailer
Well, my readers would know by now that I want to live forever, just because I’m too curious to see what will happen in the future and this TV series was just perfect for me 😉
The idea of having a stack that allows you to live forever is not bad at all! Our scientists people should consider it 😉
So if you want to see something different and interesting, Altered Carbon may be a good choice 😉
The two seasons received generally positive reviews so maybe a third season may come 😉
Wish you a wonderful day!
And please stay at home and stay safe!
