The series is most powerful when its characters actually intersect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
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.

Sense8 wants us all to just, like, talk to one another. While that might be hard to do in real life, it was nice to take an 11-episode vacation to a world where it isn't.

For Wachowski fans, season 2 is where Sense8 really comes into its own.

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.

Sense8 avoids tokenizing its characters, which involves giving each sensate a full backstory that helps viewers understand what motivates them.
December 27, 2018
[It] is a delicious conclusion to an ambitious global meld of faith, friendship, science, sexuality, tribes and identity.
May 3, 2017
In the end, Sense8 season 2 keeps everything that made its first season successful and takes it up a notch.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
July 11, 2018
The most cinematic, sprawling superhero series ever made.
April 26, 2017
Sense8 may have had a slow start in Season 1, but Season 2 is a hell of a ride. Hold on tight.

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.
May 5, 2017
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 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
