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.
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.
One of the most intriguing and sincere sci-fi mythologies returns in Sense8's second season, which never for a second loses sight of the aching humanity pulsing away at the center of the show's breakneck adventure.
The new episodes are improved in small ways, without appearing radically different from what came before. And that's a good thing for fans of the series, as Sense8 continues to be messy and beautiful and weird, but still leaves you wanting to see more.
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.
