Storyline

Sense8 tells the story of eight strangers: Will (Smith), Riley (Middleton), Capheus (Ameen), Sun (Bae), Lito (Silvestre), Kala (Desai), Wolfgang (Riemelt), and Nomi (Clayton). Each individual is from a different culture and part of the world. In the aftermath of a tragic death they all experience through what they perceive as dreams or visions, they suddenly find themselves growing mentally and emotionally connected. While trying to figure how and why this connection happened and what it means, a mysterious man named Jonas tries to help the eight. Meanwhile, another stranger called Whispers attempts to hunt them down, using the same sensate power to gain full access to a sensate's mind (thoughts/sight) after looking into their eyes. Each episode reflects the views of the characters interacting with each other while delving deeper into their backgrounds and what sets them apart and brings them together with the others.

Such a great premise
6 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's a great sci-fi story and the writing unfolds it really well, with each episode creating a build up. There's well written action, romance and intrigue within the sci-fi. The story develops mystery, but with questions still being answered answered along the way, and it created a great build up for the finale - which in itself was a great way to wrap up the first season, giving the audience a moment most would've been expecting from the beginning, while creating an 'omg what's going to happen next' impact.

There's a slow start in the first couple of episodes for everything to start intertwining, but it's worthwhile as episodes 4/5 had me hooked. The writing gave some foreshadowing lines and scenes that made me interested enough me to guess and theorize what would come next. All of the individual character story lines are well developed throughout, with great acting. Sun's an absolute favorite for me, personally.

I really hope there's another season to see how the characters will continue to cross paths and work together, especially with the quality of the story. While it's not breaking bad, it is a really recommendable sci-fi. I'm looking forward to see what unfolds.
