Did you enjoy Orange is the New Black? Are you looking for a great series with deep character development and a twist of Sci-Fi/the supernatural? May I introduce you to Sense8.
Eight strangers spanning the globe are ‘born-again’ as they experience a newly created telepathic connection to each other. Journey with them as they discover what it means to be a “sensate”, sharing: emotions, experiences, consciousness, and pain. They renegotiate their relationship with themselves as well as with their existing partners and come to a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
Each character brings their experience, be it: hacking, pharmaceuticals, or law enforcement, to the table and each has their shining moment of awesomeness.
This series is an analysis of the human condition through telepathy with a side of action and danger. There are tasteful sexually explicit scenes that lie outside of mainstream heterosexual-monogamy as well as a sprinkling of violence. These are used to further delve into the characters rather than leaving them single faceted cardboard cutouts.
Catch-up on the first season of this thrilling Netflix Original before season two is released May 5th.
Currently this title is only available via Netflix streaming.
