    Think I'll read the book again

    I don't like the sound of Kinnamon as Kovacs but I've only ever seen the dude in Suicide Squad so I gotta give him a chance. It looks like he beefed up for this role which is good

    Looks like it's got dat strong cyberpunk aesthetic. Looks high production

    Kinnaman is a badass but he's not really how I saw Kovacs either.

    TBH the fact we're getting an adaptation at all, let alone a big-budget Netflix one, is enough for me to set aside many reservations up front.

    I'm looking forward to this show and hoping it lives up to the book. Based on the character list for the show, it looks like they're deviating a bit, but that might not be a bad thing.

    This is coming to Netflix in Feb. The visuals are obviously heavily inspired by Blade Runner.

    I'll definitely check it out.

    @TheRuthlessOne, heads up.

    The book is incredible. Probably the GOAT cyberpunk book tbh. I'll finally sign up for Netflix once this drops
