Critic Reviews for Sense8 Season 1

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (26)

As has happened so many times in the Wachowskis' career, you're left wishing they'd been paid for their initial idea and that the execution had been left entirely to someone else.

Jun 9, 2015 | Full Review…

The problem is that Sense8 fails to buttress [its] insanity with anything remotely resembling coherence or, in fact, entertainment.

Jun 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Spanning almost as many genres as it does time zones, Netflix's Sense8... is a fascinating, globe-trotting epic that still manages to feel very intimate.

Jun 5, 2015 | Full Review…

These characters could not [be] further away from each other both physically and culturally, and the ways in which their wires cross make for some of the pilot's most compelling moments.

I like these characters. I like Sense8. And I am 100 percent interested in seeing what happens next.

Jun 5, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Packed with entertaining visuals, it's also rich in characterization, even featuring a few very funny storylines.

Jun 4, 2015 | Full Review…

It's as charming as it is maddening, as packed with possibility as it is limited by its massive scope.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

On pedigree alone, Sense8 is worth streaming for at least a couple of episodes to see if it catches your interest.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

The sweeping possibilities of the world open up-and deposit you in a welter of clichéd tropes

Sep 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The ultimate paradox of Sense8 is that it can give away so little about its ultimate destination in three hours of screen time, and still be seductive enough to make hour four an attractive proposition.

May 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Not since "Lost" or the early seasons of "The Walking Dead" have I been this wrapped up in a group of characters' survival and well-being.

May 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Sense8 may not be the show you want, but it is the show you need. The show everyone needs.

    Brilliant. Absorbing. Great storyline. Ahead of its time. One of the best netflix originals.

    Its a shame that this serie was underrated. the pilot episode is kinda slow but after that is amazing.
  • Apr 25, 2020
    Heartwarming social messages and three dimensional protagonists. The characters draw the audience in so well that I almost forgot there's supposed to be a deeper plot to this series. Unfortunately the sci-fi aspect of the story lagged way too much and I found myself disappointed that its execution fell short.

    Brilliant and complex. So many layers. Such a very clever script. Delicious actors. Love the international mix of locations, adding to the layering of the atmosphere. Completely binge worthy.

    A surprisingly more interesting show than I thought it would be.

    This series is exceptional specially their cinematography

    Started off great. Then it just felt like trying too hard to be politically correct.
  • Oct 27, 2019
    Amazing, wonderfilled, best Sci-fi ever
  • Oct 18, 2019
    One of the best shows I have seen, ever! Season 1 was amazing. What makes it so good, is that the "mystery" is not kept hidden. We come to learn what is going on very quickly.The character developments, the on location shooting around the globe, the music, and the acting are all superb. Season 2 had a lot more chase and shooting scenes than I thought was necessary, but the characters continue to develop bonds that are just shy of magical. A MUST watch series, very under rated and was not advertised, what a shame, really, really well done.
