Sense8 is a series that defies easy categorization. It is a combination of drama and science fiction, with a heavy dose of mystery. The “8” of the title refers to the eight main characters who have never met but, through a vision, find themselves connected to one another and can communicate with each other. The eight are hunted down by a sinister organization and have to save themselves and the world.
As a viewer, you are taken on a real roller-coaster ride. From the very first minute, you are bombarded with information, but the storyline makes up for it later. Sense8 is intriguing from the beginning. The series has a fast pace and exciting plot.
Sense8 was directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski, known for the popular science-fiction blockbuster from the nineties: The Matrix. Sense8 was filmed in scenic and evocative locations around the world. Moreover, all 12 episodes of the first season were made available at the same time on Netflix: perfect for a night of binge watching!
Sense8 is an ambitious story. The eight characters come from different parts of the world and different cultures. They are completely in the dark and don’t understand anything that is going on. A mysterious character appears who tries to help them make sense of the complicated string of events. At the same time, they are being hunted and controlled.
Due to the tremendous success of the first season, Netflix has announced that Sense8 will certainly be coming back for a second season. Watch it in the course of 2016 via Proximus TV!
