Review of Sense8

60 minutes

Sense8 is centered around eight characters that live in different cities around the world who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by this experience. They are suddenly able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, and have access to each other's deepest secrets. Not only must these eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Sense 8 is absolutely one of my favorite new shows. The plot is fast moving and the characters are very rich. Dealing with varying characters around the world, it could be difficult to fall into stereotypes. While not necessarily "defying" tropes, it certainly focuses more on the content of the characters and the message of the show. It has all of the sex and nudity that has come to characterize Netflix shows so be forewarned. The show obviously works VERY hard to be progressive and representative, which while at some points a bit too transparent, is very much appreciated. Also, it passes the Bechdal test with flying colors. Overall, an amazing show and I would highly recommend!
