Critic Reviews for Sense8 Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

It's all thoroughly bonkers. Yet with dystopian sci-fi in the ascendency, the Wachowskis are to be applauded for daring to strike a positive note.

This nakedly political show somehow manages to be free-spirited, rather than dull or polemical; its good intentions often border on goofy naiveté in a way that's charming rather than grating.

Sense8 may have had a slow start in Season 1, but Season 2 is a hell of a ride. Hold on tight.

[It] is a delicious conclusion to an ambitious global meld of faith, friendship, science, sexuality, tribes and identity.

The most cinematic, sprawling superhero series ever made.

It's messy, sure. It's also beautiful.

It gets soapy, it gets heady, it gets hella sexy (cut to Wolfgang on rooftop with mystery woman), but above all else, it gets quite awesome. Hot take: This is peak Wachowskis.

Sense8 avoids tokenizing its characters, which involves giving each sensate a full backstory that helps viewers understand what motivates them.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The season premiere doesn't feature any of those over-the-top sequences, instead relying on the more measured and delicately unfolding thrills that Sense8 thrived on in its earliest episodes.

Nov 21, 2017 | Full Review…

There are a lot of holes you can objectively pick in it if you want to. But it's filled with such joy, energy, and wackiness, and it's one hell of a rollercoaster, if you allow yourself to be taken along for the ride.
