If you get tired of watching the media whine about Trump or vice-versa,
then watch this show!

Just finished binge-watching the first season of the show "Altered
Carbon". It's got serious H+ cred, a well-written plot, lots of sex and
violence, and it's pretty much Trump-free.

Ignoring the unnecessary plot device that the miniaturized computers
(called "stacks") that people get their minds uploaded to are "alien
technology" as opposed to smart watches + 200 more years of Moore's Law,
the scenarios and issues explored could have come right off this list from
the 1990's.

I want to discuss all the cool stuff in the show, but then again I don't
want to spoil it for anyone either. So . . . Well shit that's all I can
say. Maybe I should start a thread with a spoilers warning. :-)
