I am 3 episodes into the second season of Altered Carbon, and having read all the books, I'm quite disappointed. Not only by the way they put the hatchet to the plot lines and twists and mixed and matched stuff, but by the overwhelming dumbing down of the narrative. The execution is almost flawless, but it has been made to feel hollow, castrated.
This opinion on Vice echoes my feelings on it:
If anyone else is watching, what are your thoughts? (no spoilers, please, for the sake of those who didn't read the books and/or wants to enjoy the show as it unfolds anyways).
