I agree absolutely. It's 'inspired' by Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Akira and even Dollhouse (not just because it's got Dichen Lachman in it, but that's a nice touch).
Bags of blood, guts and nudity but that's par for the course these days and none of it felt gratuitous. It also has a genuinely, intelligent, enjoyable and interesting storyline. Cast is good, even Joel Kinnaman who I rather unfairly thought was crap after RoboCop and Suicide Squad. The star for me was Kovacs' ex-marine sidekick and his wife. A great screen couple considering their situation.
Possibly most importantly, it has an actual ending. A second season is certainly doable but if there isn't one we're not left with a ridiculous 'gimme a sequel please' cliffhanger.
Overall, a must watch for me. If you want to see a 6 foot plus bald actor believably play a gang member, grandmother and crime boss over the course of two episodes then this is the show for you, Great stuff.
