Has anyone else watched this yet? I loved it. Definitely has the Blade Runner vibe going for it. The cinematography is beautiful and the story line is pretty solid. I haven't read the book yet, but it looks like season 1 encompasses book 1. There are 2 more books in the series so I expect at least 2 more seasons to come. I've heard a few people say the writing dropped off around episode 6, but I don't think that's the case. At first I didn't like the direction the story went right around that time, but by the end I thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't been this impressed with a new show since True Detectives season 1. Summary taken from the Wiki page link More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again. Kovacs will have to do something for Bancroft, though, if he wants to be resurrected. Bancroft's request of Kovacs is to solve a murder -- Bancroft's. "Altered Carbon" is based on Richard K. Morgan's cyberpunk noir novel of the same name.
