8 Reasons You Should Be Watching Netflix's Sense8

If you're not watching, you should be.


Andy and Lana Wachowski's latest work, Sense8, dropped onto Netflix earlier this year. It is the story of eight people that wake one day to find out their brains have all been mystically linked together. They can share their memories, emotions and abilities between each other at any time. You might think this sounds similar to The Matrix but Sense8 is a whole new exploration of the human experience; less sci-fi and more modern fantasy.

It features a cast of characters from all over the world and from all walks of life. The show has received some negative critiques over its sometimes cheesy dialogue and wandering plot lines, but it has also gained a swell of fan support because of its heart. There is a conspiracy element to the overall plot, but it is really about the characters dealing with their lives and the changes this new ability brings to it for each of them.

In just one season, the show has created a fan base that has taken to social media to spread their favorite scenes and feelings about the show. From the opening montage to the final moments of the finale, Sense8 is an experience that should not be missed.
