CGiii Comment

The finale: Amor Vincit Omnia
 
It's 151 minutes long...it takes a while to get to grips as to what's going on...and then, it delivers...big-time!
 
Lana Wachowski reels it all in...the story is complete. Wait...there are 25 or so minutes to go! This is when the real magic starts...the sentiment is a wonder to behold. Our review sofa - each and all - were sobbing their hearts out...talk about uplifting...hearts will soar like eagles!
 
And...there's more...sensuality, sexuality, carnality...a fine and fitting ending for the Sense8s...as for the very last shot!!!
 
Wow!
 

Season 2...
 
We've just binged watched the entire season 2...
 
And...we loved it!
 
You have to admire the production values, the cinematography, the music and the imagination...and, the technicality and those locations!!!
 
Okay, admittedly, there are a couple of dodgy performances...but, Sun Bak and Wolfgang Bogdanow make up for those discrepancies...she is amazing, he is....perfection!
 
We await Season 3...with impatient vigour! UPDATE: Netflix has cancelled the show!!!
 

Season 1...
 
The jury is out deliberating...
 
Episode 1: fragmented, inaccessible, badlly-filmed and confusing. Not the greatest way to start a series...
 
Episode 2: fragmented, inaccessible, badlly-filmed (what's with all the close-ups?!?!) and confusing. But...yes, there is a story starting to develop...the Bollywood thing was not the greatest of ideas!
 
Episode 3: there's a pattern forming...and, yet...it is becoming rather compulsive viewing.
 
....in conclusion...not bad...a bit anti-climactic...but, the second series has been ordered...expectations will be high.

The(ir) Blurb...

Sense8 tells the story of eight strangers: Will (Smith), Riley (Middleton), Capheus (Ameen), Sun (Bae), Lito (Silvestre), Kala (Desai), Wolfgang (Riemelt), and Nomi (Clayton). Each individual is from a different culture and part of the world. In the aftermath of a tragic death they all experience through what they perceive as dreams or visions, they suddenly find themselves growing mentally and emotionally connected. While trying to figure how and why this connection happened and what it means, a mysterious man named Jonas tries to help the eight. Meanwhile, another stranger called Whispers attempts to hunt them down, using the same sensate power to gain full access to a sensate's mind (thoughts/sight) after looking into their eyes. Each episode reflects the views of the characters interacting with each other while delving deeper into their backgrounds and what sets them apart and brings them together with the others.
