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.

Wakowskis - so pretty good
17 July 2020 | by kbfisherSee all my reviews

The directors of the Matrix bring you this very ambitious piece about 8 people being connected through some sort of psychic psycillium. Interesting concept, and I liked the characters. Frustrated that Aml Ameen was replaced after season 1 with no explanation. Did they think we wouldn't notice? It also felt sort of clique .. but I guess it just didn't age that well. It was probably edgy and groundbreaking in 2015 when it came out. Now it just seems like one of those pieces where they put every different archetype together to see how things pan out. Beautiful directing of course... and a delight to watch. I'm thankful they pulled together to make the finale.
