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.

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

Great acting and directing in this ambitious project that aims to connect 8 different characters. Each character is meant to represent an archetype of someone... and somehow I feel like Ive met all of them before.

But why replace Aml Ameen? Did they think we wouldn't notice? The new guy looked nothing like him.

Some favorite actors from the Matrix. Many aspects seem potentially autobiographical of the directors.

The soundtrack is from 2005 with Sigur Ros, Buena Vista Social Club, and Jeff Buckley -ish Hallelujahs. In that sense - it made the series feel dated. .. but its still a nice attempt to bring all different archetypes together .. not really done as much as of late. That being said .. most of this is a nightmare for me - who would want 7 other voices giving their 2 cents at all times in. your life .. or an orgy in a bathroom. The quotidian homage to epicurean life is meh.

Also strange - I knew all the songs, and felt like I had met everyone .. all the characters seemed like old friends , and yet I felt like an outsider. I didn't feel like I was a part of this. I just wasn't any of the people represented. .. but maybe they want people to feel isolated.

glad they finished the finale after all. .. a small reason to keep Netflix a bit longer.

great directing of course .. but typical of the siblings... it gets progressively more surreal .
