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, called "sleeves", are disposable vessels that can accept any "stack". Takeshi Kovacs, a political operative with mercenary skills, wakes up 250 years after his previous sleeve is terminated. He is given the choice to either spend the rest of time in prison for his crimes, or to help solve the murder of Laurens Bancroft, one of the wealthiest men in the settled worlds. Takeshi was the sole surviving soldier of those defeated in an uprising against the new world order 250 years prior.

looks interesting.  Reminds me of Blade Runner/Ghost in the Shell and even bioshock.

 

Yeah, same kind of spirit/genre, even if some aspects are quite different.

Have you watched?  How did you find it?
