Sense8 is a Netflix Originals series launched in June 2015 and directed by the Wachowski sisters (formerly known as the Wachowski brothers). That name will probably ring a bell if you have ever watched The Matrix. Yes, that famous award winning film from the 90’s with Keanu Reeves in the leading role. Even though it has almost been 2 decades, this title on their track record was still decisive for us to give Sense8 a chance.
Sense8 tells the story about 8 individuals from all around the world that become mentally and emotionally connected after a certain event. In the beginning everything is kinda vague. It almost feels like you ended up watching a very weird cable special. But starting from the third episode it’s getting extremely hard to push that pause button.
What attracts us in the storyline is that each episode you figure new things out. At first you get to know the characters in their daily lives. And little by little it becomes clear in which direction the Wachowskis are willing to go to with the series. Watching Sense8 turns into a trip around the world. One where you get to know the different individuals from the cluster.
The first season is basically a long introduction to the real deal. It felt like things where just only getting started in the final episode. So now we really can’t wait till the next season will appear online in december 2016.
