TV | Sense8: Season 1

title sense8

Netflix has been on a roll lately, releasing popular past hits such as House of Cards, Daredevil and many more.

Considering this, it comes as no surprise that they have decided to capitalise on this demand, and started picking up the pace with releasing brand new series of their own. One of these is Sense8.

If you are in the mood for a good TV binge and really enjoy unique science fiction, then Sense8 may be for you.

The Wachowskis, who have had past success in creating incredible films such as The Matrix have done it again in writing this complex yet captivating new series; although the plot line is slightly confusing at times, it always keeps you on your toes.

If you are in the mood for a good TV binge and really enjoy unique science fiction, then sense8 may be for you.

It features a diverse bunch of eight people all around the world from Mexico, Korea, India, Germany, Iceland, Nairobi, Chicago and San Francisco.

All characters have different characteristics and talents ranging from kick-boxing to police training and even a former computer hacker.

It seems as though this complicated array of characters caused the first season to be the target of some criticism.

It took almost the whole of the season to introduce all the individual characters to the audience which meant that some critics felt that the plot line suffered; it lacked depth and relied on stereotypical story lines.

However, with this said, the potential is there to create something special and exciting which we may see in season two.

The show may start off slowly and may be criticised for lacking in substance, but the Wachowskis have clearly thought out the path that this series is headed down, and I will be along for the ride.

As we discover near the end of the series, all eight of these people are able to connect with each other, to see one another right next to them and the ability to talk together even if they are on opposite sides of the globe.

They are even able to share their special skills to help each other in times of need.

It would seem that the series has a hidden depth within a bigger picture which is yet to be revealed.

The show may start off slowly and may be criticised for lacking in substance but the Wachowskis have clearly thought out the path that this series is headed down, and I will be along for the ride.

With all its downfalls the series has some great scenes, action and imaginative story line which clearly will be increased in seasons to come.

Netflix has renewed the series, but the start date of season two is yet to be announced.
