Critic Reviews for Sense8 Season 2

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (7)

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.

May 5, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Apr 26, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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…

Sense8 does not fail on race, but it's important to note that Wachowskis and their collaborators are trying to dissolve the boundaries of skin color through a lens that is still white and Eurocentric.

Sep 19, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Season 2 is such a beautiful examination of the themes of love, human relationships, and what identity is that the messy or less enthralling moments are worth pushing through.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The series, about eight people from wildly different backgrounds who unite for the common purpose of liberation and defiance, has never been more relevant than it is now...

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

An absolutely joyous event, bursting with loads of thrilling fight scenes (watching Wachowski-directed shootouts are always a treat), glorious sensate sing-a-longs, emotional twists, sentimental celebrations, and, of course, one final massive orgy.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Not for the faint of heart, this show fires on all the sensory cylinders.

May 22, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The most cinematic, sprawling superhero series ever made.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Sense8: Season 2

    It's fantastic. Don't expect a fast paced generic sci-fi action show though, it has action sequences but it's about the character's lives and connections. Expect a queer aesthetic (and storylines), life-affirmation and some dancing and orgy sequences, too. Watching this show never fails to make me feel good.

    sooo good!!!! You must watch it

    Often times, this show was grossly and unnecessarily perverse which didn't forward the plot. It doesn't surprise me why it lost one of it's best actors for the 2nd season and got cancelled.
  • Apr 26, 2020
    This show is my absolute favourite of all times! Absolutely beautiful the way it portrays human connections and the characters and absolutely relatable in some way or another... The plot got clearer throughout this season and some loose ends that we did not understand during the first season are explained now and all fits together! Absolutely amazing!
  • Feb 18, 2020
    Brilliant and complex again. A lot of violence. Max Riemalt is fabulous as are Tuppence Middleton and Brian J Smith. Tina Desai is delicate and convincingly naieve. As with the first season, this is binge worthy. Gripping, fast paced, aesthetically pleasing. SUCH A VERY BIG PITY THAT SEASON 3 WAS CANCELLED 😪😪😪😪

    I applaud Lilly Wachowski, Lana Wachowski, J. Michael Straczynski on a relatable Human story, told in the Sci-Fi genre. The series set itself the ambitious challenge of telling a single story in 8 parts; both Season I and II maintain a focus on the lives and parallel personal conflicts of the sensates, highlighting how the human condition transcends social/geo-political/gender labels. Somehow a show about 8 strangers scattered across the globe, with an extra-human ability to exist within a clustered mind never devolves too far into the fantastic choosing rather to explore the Human question of what makes Us like Them.

    Amazing work! Lifts film making to new heights in refusing to buckle under its own weight, a truly spectacular experience!
  • Jan 03, 2019
    One of the best shows ever to come to TV. A perfect melding of complex characters and themes combined with stunning filming all around the world.
  • Dec 31, 2018
    One of the best shows ever made how could they cancel such a brilliant masterpiece?
  • Nov 07, 2018
    Probably one of the most emotionally charged and intriguing Sci-Fi series. Here, the futuristic aspects of technology are left in the dust and instead the question of what makes us human and humane are explored, how are we connected and why is that connection important. It is a shame the series was canceled but I am glad that they did an actual finale instead of the usual drop as if sci-fi watchers were not an important genre.
