Altered Carbon (2018–2020)
Imagine a world where you can live forever, if you can afford it. Altered Carbon plunges us into a dystopian future where consciousness is stored on chips called "stacks," allowing the rich to transfer their minds into new bodies, or "sleeves," as they please.
Here comes Takeshi Kovacs, a former rebel with his mind stored for centuries, who is awakened in a new sleeve to solve a wealthy man's "murder." The neon-lit cityscapes, cyberpunk vibes, and seedy underbelly of this show recall the gritty detective stories of the past, but with a futuristic twist.
How about a thrilling dose of espionage, spiced up with a parallel dimension? Step right into the labyrinth of Counterpart.

It's a high-stakes thriller with identity, deception, and existential questions on the table.
Person of Interest (2011–2016)
A former CIA operative and a mysterious billionaire join forces in Person of Interest. Together, they use an advanced surveillance system, known as "The Machine," to prevent violent crimes before they happen.
But here's the twist – the Machine doesn't discriminate. It watches everyone, categorizes threats, and serves them up as "irrelevant" or "relevant." As they navigate this moral minefield, the duo finds themselves caught in a web of intrigue involving terrorists, hackers, and shadowy government agencies.
High-tech justice meets personal redemption in this gripping series.
