Link fixed in the original post. Yeah, I hear you guys on the low budget but great storytelling front. You don't need massive budgets to weave a good yarn.

Case in point, I am watching Altered Carbon right now and whilst it's VERY pretty and the production values are awesome, I am struggling to remember the names of any of the characteres. The worldbuilding is ace, but the plot and characters; not so much. They all seem like watered down cyberpunk cliches with very little emotional content to get me invested, and I'm almost at the end of S1.

I think they were trying for 'Blade Runner the TV show', and it gets pretty close, but lacks the emotional core needed to engage me.
