Critic Consensus: Sense8 maintains its stunning visuals, Wachowski wackiness, and great heart -- though its individual characters deserve more development.

News & Interviews for Sense8: Season 2
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 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.
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.
Sense8 has always been about family, and the last few episodes crystallize and expand on the various meanings and iterations of family that have been presented in the show: good families, bad families, flesh-and-blood families, and found families.
