Critic Reviews for Sense8: Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (21)

Sense8 is exhaustingly po-faced and apparently oblivious to the distinction between challenging viewers and boring them witless.

June 9, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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.

June 9, 2015 | Full Review…

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

June 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.

June 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.

Audience Reviews for Sense8: Season 1


Super Reviewer


Sense8 is a sexy, thrilling, clever drama on something largeer than life itself. 8 characters with different abilities and background come together to experience each other's life against a threat that seeks to destroy them. The story is average but the way it was told worth so much more than the show itself. Definitely the best new show in 2015.
