Advance Preview: Altered Carbon Returns with a New Exciting Story and More Kick-Ass Action

Altered CarbonAfter two years of fans waiting, the second season of Altered Carbon, based on a series of dystopian cyberpunk novels by Richard K. Morgan, drops February 27th on Netflix. The series takes place over three hundred years in the future, where people can extend their lives indefinitely, if they have the money. The human consciousness is stored in “stacks” that can be transferred between bodies which they call sleeves, but just because people can live forever, doesn’t mean they should. These elite “Meths” (short for Methuselah) hold all the power.

The series focuses on the character of Takeshi Kovacs, played by Joel Kinnaman in season one, a former soldier of the Protectorate (future police force) who joined the rebellion after meeting and falling in love with leader Quellcrist Falconer (Renée Elise Goldsberry). Quell, who originally created stacks so she could “see the stars” and help people, did not foresee the consequences to humanity.

In season one, Quell trained her followers, called Envoys, to become warriors and take down the Protectorate. In an attempt to upload a virus into stacks that would add a code to stop humans from living more than one hundred years, they were betrayed by Tak’s sister, Reileen (Dichan Lachman), and all of the Envoys were killed, except for Kovacs. All hope, however, was not lost for our hero, who was given reason to believe Quell could be alive.

**This is a spoiler-free preview review. My detailed recap will be available he soon.**

Doctor WhoIn tonight’s all-new episode of Doctor Who on BBC America, written by Vinay Patel and Chris Chibnall and directed by Nida Manzoor, the trigger-happy space police, the Judoon, come to Gloucester. The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and her team must not only figure out who they are looking for, but stop them from destroying the city.

To say tonight’s episode is mind-blowing is an understatement. During the premiere episode, everyone was shocked with the return of the Master, but that is nothing compared to “Fugitive of the Judoon.” I don’t want to say anything to ruin the surprises and shocks, but they are one after the other.
