That's a perceptive review.  I also appreciated AV Club's take in a longer review.  https://www.avclub.com/altered-carbon-gives-netflix-a-sprawling-sci-fi-blockb-1822570558

AV Club is a little more favorable, but not a rave saying "Altered Carbon is often quite a bit of fun, but its flaws are large and glaring."  They really like Kinnaman.  They also say AC is a "a textbook example of how the binge model helps to mask a show’s shortcomings during the viewing."  I think that's probably right.  If this show were on TV once a week, I think many viewers would tune out.

I think that's a very good point.  I really liked Altered Carbon but can't deny binge watching covers up a lot of flaws.  In some ways, AC reminds me of the one-season sci-fi shows that Fox often has (with more sex and violence).  That's not a bad thing mind you but those shows tend to start off with high ratings that become very low as the show completes its season.

Wow, I never expected this would come back and am very excited for it. Although I do have to admit I started reading the second book, but did not finish. I just couldn't get into it as much as the first book, plus the printing was too small and I was having a hard time reading.

Anthony Mackie is so dam sexy! I’m excited. I can’t wait to see him take over the role of Kovacs. I wonder if REG will be back as Falconer? I hope we’ll see her in the role again.

Anthony Mackie being cast for the adaptation of the second book makes me feel like I should watch the rest of season one. But man, it was so fucking boring. The book wasn't boring. I don't know how Netflix managed to do it.

The cast didn't help. Other than James Purefoy and the actor playing Poe, there wasn't an ounce of life amongst them.

I loved Joel Kinnaman in The Killing but I did not love him in this.   He just fell flat for me. No depth to his portrayal.   Hoping for better things with AM.  

I thought the actress who played Ortega was very good.  I see some criticize of her around here but for me she was better than JK
