Sense8: Season 2 Reviews

Sense8 avoids tokenizing its characters, which involves giving each sensate a full backstory that helps viewers understand what motivates them.
November 21, 2017
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.

If I had to boil what I love about Sense8 down to a top three, I'd say that the show's greatest assets are montages, orgy scenes, and group hugs.

This nakedly political show somehow manages to be free-spirited, rather than dull or polemical; its good intentions often border on goofy naivet in a way that's charming rather than grating.
May 4, 2017
Still utterly confusing but also visually beautiful and strangely touching, the Wachowskis' Netflix series continues to shine.

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

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.

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
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.

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

[It] is a delicious conclusion to an ambitious global meld of faith, friendship, science, sexuality, tribes and identity.
July 11, 2018
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.

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.

Very rarely does a TV series come along that just loves existing as much as Sense8 does.

May 8, 2017
I'm more accepting of the show's eccentricities and rough spots, more willing to follow it over the cliff of cheesy dialogue and baffling character beats, simply because I love having a show this open-hearted, yet still boasting this many car chases.

May 8, 2017
For all its evident ambition, and its veneer of inclusion, Sense8 is no more interested in the messy details of progress than The Avengers.

May 5, 2017
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.
