Sense 8 – Netflix Review


Sense 8 is an American science fiction drama web television series created, written and executive produced by Andy and Lana Wachowski and J Michael Straczynski. The plot revolves around 8 strangers from around the world who suddenly become mentally and emotionally linked.  While living their everyday lives, they suddenly have a vision of the violent death of a woman called Angelica (Hannah) and discover that they are ‘sensates’ While trying to live their lives and figure out how and why this connection has happened and what it means, they are assisted by another sensate, Jonas, who is trying to protect them from “Whispers,” another sensate, who is similarly empowered and is hunting them down by tapping into their psychic link.


Sense 8 is a show that is almost impossible to explain to people, so I usually just tell them that’s it’s a really great show that they should definitely watch.  The show really works hard to emphasize the lives of each cast member causing you to feel emotionally attached to each character.

I would completely recommend this show to anyone who loves science fiction.  It keeps you on your feet every second of every episode and will always leave you wanting more.  I can not wait for the second season in summer of 2016.
