Well, whatever you may not like about this (and three episodes in I am still not convinced by Kinnamen) you’d have to admit the production values are amazing. Expenses have not been spared. And I don’t mean it’s a surface sheen of SFX — I mean the bone-deep visual design and world-building is superb.

I think Kinnaman nails the character they're portraying in this adaptation. Whether that's the Kovacs in people's heads is different.

I've not seen this but I love kinnaman for his role in the killing. A very endearing presence.

Question: I've seen the first epsiode of this, and liked it. Should I:

a.) Stop watching and read the book first?
b.) Finish watching and then read the book?
c.) Jeez dude, stop being such a nerd about it and just get on with it.

Six episodes in. Book spoilers:

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I'm starting to think they're going to change the ending, because they haven't foreshadowed the Rawlings virus strike yet. Unless it's going to happen in the next episode, which appears to be an extended flashback to the Quellist Rebellion, so maybe we'll see it there. The cast list says one of the unnamed Envoys in the flashbacks is Jimmy DeSoto, which suggests he may meet the same fate as he does in the book.


I have reservations (more on those when I finish the show) but I am enjoying it.

:shrug:

It's... ok. The world building is great, I particularly like the Raven and Poe, but a lot of the characterisation is a bit one dimensional (althogh to be fair the underlying source material, while ace, was partially "teenage boy" in its approach and aethetics) and wall of flesh actor person being Kovacs is not exactly a big bundle of charisma.

And oh my god the cop - her overacting is painful.

Still, I'm only on Ep 4.

I don't mind the characters being trope-heavy -- this is noir, after all. I strongly agree about Kinnamen though. I much prefer the guy playing

OG Kovacs


None of these people can hold a candle to Tatiana Maslany in the "playing different characters who look the same" stakes.

It's not going to win over people who don't like this kind of thing. Kinnamen is a bit weak and its very, very densely packed, to the point where I'm sure it's put a lot of people off. I'm enjoying it a lot, however, because cyberpunk technoir is extremely on-brand for me, and I love the book, and there's plenty in the adaptation that is good.
