Critic Consensus: Sense8 serves up a heaping helping of yuletide queerness and sci-fi slyness in this narratively messy but richly felt special.

News & Interviews for Sense8: A Christmas Special
... "Sense8" is a show that always feels incredibly true to itself, especially its deeply held ethos that love, in whatever shape or form it might come in, is something to be honored and cherished.
... Sense8 delivers all the love in the form of eight hyper-connected humans, emotionally and physically relying on one another in an increasingly hostile, dangerous world.
... occasionally feels as if it's been beamed back to us from the distant future to hook up with one of our most prominent religious holidays, but the more you watch of the special, the more you'll say, "Oh, sure. Of course."
Narratively, there's still a lot for the show to address, but overall, I though the special was a success. I'd grown fond of these characters and it was comforting to revisit them.
It's that spirit of connection that makes the show so appealing even when it's at its fuzziest or most self-indulgent.
