When most people think of February they think of long summer days, balmy nights, and lots and lots of drinks with tiny little umbrellas.
I think of… Netflix.
Netflix and long summer nights of watching said Netflix with my small dog named Vinnie. And… snacks. And possibly a few of those drinks with the tiny umbrellas in them.
So if you’re anything like me – get excited – Netflix has some absolutely stellar content coming out this month.
Altered Carbon: Season 1
Altered Carbon is Netflix’s latest sci-fi-y mind bend-y series. It’s set 350 years in the future in the year 2384.
In this future people’s consciousnesses are contained in “stacks,” little storage devices which are attached to the back of their necks. And physical bodies are turned into disposable vessels called “sleeves.”
The main character is a man named Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman) who wakes up 250 years after his “sleeve” is killed and is given the choice to either spend the rest of his life in prison for the crimes he committed in the past or to help solve the murder of the wealthiest man in the world.
If you like Black Mirror, you’ll probably love Altered Carbon – it’s streaming on Netflix now.
