Critic Reviews for Sense8 Season 1

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (22)

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The Wachowskis are known for their visuals and kinetic storytelling, which is on full display in Sense8. Each establishing shot lavishes attention on the details of each location, and the colors are spectacular.

Jul 27, 2018 | Full Review…

This series is more experiential in nature, like a drug trip or a good long shag session. You don't binge, you indulge.

Jun 8, 2018 | Full Review…

It is high in concept and low in blemishes. It is also terrible.

Audience Reviews for Sense8: Season 1


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.
