Sense8 is a Netflix Original series, produced by Anarchos Productions and the filmmaking siblings, Lana and Lilly Wachowski (remember The Matrix? same sibs).  There are 24 episodes over 2 seasons.  Each episode is around 50 minutes in length to nearly 2 hours.

 

The spoken language is mostly English, and Netflix offers dubbing and/or subtitles in several other languages. There may be more language options available in your area.

 

Sense8 is rated TV-MA.  This series contains graphic violence, sexual situations and mature themes.

 

Sense8, in short, is a big-budget mind-fuck that features 8 people from around the world that have the ability to see and feel what someone else in their "cluster" sees and feels. At the same time, they instinctively inheret all of their physical capabilities (which make for some great action sequences).

To me science fiction is about the sense of mystery, the sense of awe. Not 'shock and awe', just 'awe’.

Working on my review now. Stay tuned.
