#1: Altered Carbon (2 Feb)
This sci-fi series just premiered a couple of days ago, and has already received lots of promising reviews. Some critics have compared it to the classic neo-noir sci-fi film Blade Runner, and others have suggested that this might be the most expensive series Netflix has ever produced. That’s by and large thanks to the stylish – and very expensive-looking – visuals, where CGI seems to have been used extensively to create the gorgeous and futuristic landscape the show is set in. Based on the 2002 novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan, the show follows the story of one Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a former elite soldier who has now been tasked to investigate the murder of a wealthy man.
