The first season of Netflix's Altered Carbon presented viewers with a fascinating futuristic world that was dense with detail. For those looking to throw themselves into a fresh sci-fi universe, Altered Carbon was packed with world-building and explored genre tropes in an interesting way. For Season 2, the show has traded Joel Kinnaman for Anthony Mackie, but that's not the only thing that has changed.
While Season 1 grapples with moral greys and heavy questions to do with the identity and existence of a person, Season 2 aims to be a more personal story about protagonist Takeshi Kovacs. It's also more driven by action and set-piece moments. But how does this come together and will fans of the first season be into it? That's exactly the questions we answer in our video review.
