    This is another example of why I stopped watching trailers and reading reviews before I watch something. At most, I’ll glance at an IMDB or RT score just to make sure at least some people thought it was worth watching.

    I didn’t know Altered Carbon was based on a popular book series, it had a huge budget, and was presented as one of Netflix’s next flagship shows. I had zero expectations and was ready to turn it off if it bored me.

    I was into it from the get go. The pace is great. I thought the acting was serviceable. The storyline was the best thing about the show. The sex and violence was a bonus. Could have used less dong though. The flashback scenes were pure cheese but since I was expecting low quality, it didn’t bother me much. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

    Ortega had an alright face, but that body is bangin.

    I really enjoyed the first season. Episodes 6-9 are pretty odd and just jump around to stuff that doesn’t really seem to matter. Hoping they do a few more seasons and get back on track.

    I wish all the girls at the Hong Kong club had Ortega's body. Her face, I can accept too. She is like the hawt mexican who works the counter at that place you shop at.

    i liked it and thought joel kinnaman was a good fit

    theyd probably need new actors for any new seasons so it would be interesting to see where they go with it
