SEASON 1- WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HIM? HE'S IN A PLASTIC BAG IN THE FETAL POSITION AND HE'S NAKED? Oooh...he's naked! Grr!
Your body is not who you are.
You shed it like a snake sheds it's skin!
First of all I love Joel Kinnaman (AKA the naked guy) so that was the first thing that drew me to watching the show. I first watched him on "The Killing". Very cool show I highly recommend it.
But the show's description is what really reeled me in. I mean come on...your body isn't who you are? That goes against everything that we know about ourselves now. We are our body and our body is us.
But what if it wasn't?
And your consciousness could be moved from one body to the next? You're you...but what you see in the mirror is a complete stranger.
Whoa...that's deep right?!
In this very cool Netflix show...you get to meet Takeshi Kovacs. He's a complicated guy that went from child-killer to hired gun-man for "the man" then jumped sides and started fighting for the resistance that was trying to take down said man.
Try to keep up with me guys...
In the resistance he meets and of falls in love with the leader...who just so happens to be cute...and smart and can do crazy ninja style moves.
No one saw that coming right?
Okay I didn't at first but I quickly caught on. When they were making out.
Don't judge me!
Anyway...I don't want to tell you too much because I want you to watch the show for yourself.
Season 1 deals in 2 time periods...or is it 3? It flashes back to his childhood and how he became who he is and also flashes back to the time that he was with her making goggly eyes and all.
His consciousness has been on ice for 250 years. Guess that resistance stuff didn’t work out so well.
So now he's awake again. And he's in another body. Thankfully it's the body of a hot disgraced police officer with his own problems. He's been awoken by one of the most powerful men who runs the city and has lived for centuries amassing wealth and power. And he's brought him back up to do one job...solve a murder.
His own murder.
Okay way too many pronouns...I'm talking about the rich guy's murder..not his own. Duh...okay now...
<pause for a dramatic climatic gasp>
For him to stay alive and possibly get his girl back he has to delve into this crazy cyber punk world where anything goes. Murder someone...just buy them a new body.
He teams up with the most unlikely team to get in...solve this murder...and get the hell out of there.
Only it's not that easy...and things aren't looking good for our guy.
My two cents...
I highly recommend this show. It's got all the makings of a great series. Murder...intrigue... love...lust...better drugs...friends who aren't friends...ninja moves. How much more can you ask for...it's pretty cool. Season 2 was released 2/2020 but I haven't watched it all. Stay tune for my next review on it.
My grade for heroes that live for centuries and get placed back in a body of hot cops grade is..
So go watch if fuck*ers!
