Critic Consensus: Some of the scenarios border on illogical, but the diverse characters and the creative intersections between their stories keep the Wachowskis' Sense8 compelling.

News & Interviews for Sense8: Season 1
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.
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.
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.
