Really liked Altered Carbon series too and never read the books or heard of it before the show.
The problem is (not that I pretend to speak for everyone) most of us get attachment to characters of a series. Altered Carbon is going to have a all new cast (with a couple of hold overs?) each season. I can't think of a single series, that's ever done it successfully. Worst, afaik each time it's been tried it's failed, so I don't hold out much hope. The most recent I can think of was True Detective.
True detective has new people and stories every season.
People in the Altered Carbon universe are digital human freight, the sleeve is immaterial* (think the same person in a different body). If the story is good, the show should be good.
*Getting a decked out sleeve is nice but an envoy in an unaugmented body will still have their most feared feature, mental conditioning. Of course you could get a synthetic sleeve but things never taste right. http://altered-carbon.wikia.com/wiki/Sleeves
A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test. It's a compassion test. It's a decency test. It's a social responsibility test.
Cover Your Eyes for even more protection.
