The episode and the book are so different this time! Like SOOOO different!!

SPOILERS AHEAD – WON’T RUIN THE SHOW BUT WILL TELL YOU SOME THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO KNOW BEFORE WATCHING/READING IT

SHOWBOOK
Kovacs is invited and went to dinner party at Bancroft’sNo invite was issued, and no party happened
Elliot takes Kovacs to get weaponsKovacs goes to the armourer Bancroft recommended
The knife bio-weapon goes to the tipThe knife bio-weapon is no where near the edges to ensure the owner doesn’t get poisoned
The hooker, Louise, drugs KovacsKovacs goes with them willingly and is drugged at the facility

Since there was so many differences between the two in this episode, there’s not too many similarities to look at. So let’s have a look at them.

Other than Kovacs getting weapons, seeing Louise and being kidnapped, there’s like no similarities between the book and the show. Which isn’t surprising given that this makes up all of like 10 minutes of the episode and only 25 pages.

Not much time to have anything really happen.

I’m kinda hoping that the dinner party happens later in the book so that I can see some of those bits playing out in more detail.

    1. Thank you! I’m having great fun and it’s interesting thinking about why the writers and directors decided to change things as I’m going.

  1. You seem to really be getting into this show, eh?! That is always a great feeling- no matter the medium (book, tv, movie etc) – when you can really sink your teeth into something! I haven’t watched/read either but your comparisons between the two (the table) is an excellent format.

    1. I’m pretty sure I binged this over a single weekend (might have also taken the Friday off work to binge it…) when it first came out. But I do love scifi!
