I just finished the second season and I have to say I’m blown away, I loved the show since the first season, but in this season they went to another level.
Sense8 [a play on the word sensate] is an American science fiction drama web television series created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski for Netflix. The show introduced a multinational ensemble cast, portraying eight strangers from different parts of the world who suddenly become “sensates”; human beings who are mentally and emotionally linked. The show aims to explore subjects that its creators feel have not been emphasized in many science fiction shows to date, such as politics, identity, sexuality, gender and religion.
The premise of the show is absolutely incredible, I love the interaction of the the different characters, from different parts of the world, different culture and background, and how they complement and help each other. The filming for Sense8 takes place almost entirely on location around the globe such as Germany, Mexico, India, Kenya, Iceland, South Korea, Netherlands, Scotland, United Kingdom, Malta, Italy, United States, Brazil.
I think they really explain the trama in the second season, in the first season you can’t really understand some things that are going on but in the second season a lot of questions are answered, and the direction that the show is taking is really cool.
I think is an incredible show and not only the history is really cool, the different subjects they explore are really important and interesting. If you like science fiction and drama you should watch it, the chemistry between the actors is incredible, they all are really good, you can really feel their culture and how they love each other.
