Love has many components – physical attraction, pheromones, appreciation of similarities and differences, and so on.

In Netflix’s Altered Carbon, where bodies (sleeves) can be replaced/exchanged by simply moving one’s digitally recorded soul (stacks) into a new sleeve, how does love even work?

In a new video, the series creator and stars take a look at love on Altered Carbon.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

You can see elements of other science fiction classics in Altered Carbon – protagonist wakes up after hundreds of year (Samurai Jack); those who can afford it can live forever via imprinting their souls on ‘stacks,’ which then be inserted into the body (called a sleeve) of one’s choosing (Ghost in the Shell) and a setting very similar to Blade Runner – but even when a series wears its influences on its (ahem) sleeves, it can still be something bigger, smaller or equal to those influences.

Altered Carbon is mostly equal – and a lot of fun.

The world of Netflix’s Bright is one where Elven, Human and Orcish cultures collide in a nasty urban environment (well, except for the Elves who have taken over a part of downtown Los Angeles and made it pretty spiffy).
