    "The series takes place over 350 years in the future, in the year 2384. In the future, a person's memories have been decanted into "cortical stacks," storage devices of alien design which have been reverse engineered, duplicated en masse, and surgically inserted into the vertebrae at the back of the neck. Physical bodies are called "sleeves," disposable vessels that can accept any "stack." Takeshi Kovacs, a political operative with mercenary skills, wakes up 250 years after his sleeve is terminated, and he is given the choice to either spend the rest of time in prison for his crimes, or to help solve the murder of one of the wealthiest men in the settled worlds Laurens Bancroft"

    If y'all don't know by now, I'm a huge Sci-fi fan - randomly came across this gem over the last week or so and just finished it. Visually stunning, acting is pretty good, plot is meaty, and it carries a message. Definitely worth the watch if you're into Sci-fi. Didn't find out until after the fact but it's actually based on a book - wish I could have read it first.

    Anyway, worth it if you're into this kinda stuff.

    I have to start this series over again. I keep being distracted and it seems like the type of show that you need to focus.

    You absolutely have to pay attention. It has a steep curve owing to a somewhat heavy storyline but once you understand the gist, it's great.

    I've started watching the series and it occurs to me that it's very possible that elements of this could happen in the near future. Specifically how people can transfer their conscious into an electronic device(stack). There are actually people in Silicone Valley working on transferring or copying human conscious into digital form. So its possibly within the next 50 to 100 years there may be a way to cheat death combine that advancements in robotics and bio engineering and cloning it soon could be feasible to have a digital copy of your consciousness exist in a physical form as well as online. These ideas were also explored in Black Mirror and Ghost In The Shell. So my questions are this, if technology companies like Apple or Google or some new start up came up with a way digitize your "soul" would you do it? Would you still be human? Do think "transhumanism" is ethical?

    To be honest, man, I have no idea what I would do - leaning towards probably but you just don't know how shit will turn out lol. They'd fuck around and turn into neo-slavery though
