    3 episodes into Altered Carbon.

    I'm enjoying it so far, but man there is a lot of world building taking place inside these first few episodes. So much terminology and high concept, I'm actually surprised the show hasn't buckled under the weight of its own ambition at this point.

    I was a little wary at the notion of having Joel Kinnaman in the lead (he's not exactly a nuanced actor), but he's played the menacing, down trodden gun-for-hire remarkably well.

    True, but you have to admit the set design and the atmosphere are top notch. The show hasn't completely grabbed me, but I'll certainly keep coming back for more. I'm 4 episodes in.

    As for Kinnaman, don't judge him on the Robocop reboot or Suicide Squad. He was the best part of The Killing.

    I was in Japan for a week and Star Trek: Discovery is on Netflix there so I watched the whole season, often at 3 am thanks to jet lag. I liked itits a lot harder on its characters than TOS or TNG, and no one seems safe. It has a strong season arc and some interesting resonance frequencies/recurring themes. Sometimes the tech seemed more advanced than TOS, which it precedes (a lot of teleporting within the ship, which was rarely if ever done on subsequent series, for example), but some of that is down to production values. It will be interesting to see where they go with S2.

    That sounds really good. I think I need a little Star Trek in my life.

    I'm watching Castlevania. I was too into it at the beginning but now I'm hooked. Very pleased to see Warren Ellis can still be funny.

    Thank you. I have been holding off for opinions and info. Maybe soon I will give it a go.
