Netflix let me watch the first 3 episodes yesterday, and
I enjoyed them. I hope to find some time soon to watch the
rest! The first episode was very strange, slow, weird and
confusing. It got better towards the end of the first
episode, and by the second episode, I was hooked. I think it
was that impromptu Bollywood number that did it! That was so
Sense8 is a really good science fiction show about 8
unrelated people around the world who are connected and
start seeing things, and each other. The series starts
slowly as they introduce the 8 different people, plus a few
other characters. Darryl Hannah plays a woman at the
beginning who connects them and then does something drastic.
I don't want to say too much and spoil it for you.
The show is created by the Wachowski Brothers, who did
"The Matrix." That movie was mind-blowing. I'm not sure this
series is that, at least not as of yet. It remains to be
seen. There are a lot of cool fights in it and some very
interesting characters. The other creator of the show
is J. Michael Straczynski, who did "Babylon 5," a really
outstanding scifi TV series. I hope the rest of the episodes
live up to this great ancestry.
You'll probably recognize a few other familiar faces,
such as Brian J. Smith from "Stargate Universe" and Naveen
Andrews from "Lost." It's a very large and fascinating cast.
