Sense8 could have been awful. A science fiction series about humanity with eight different main characters across the globe, written by the Wachowskis (coming off the high of Jupiter Ascending – because critics loved that, right?) and J Michael Straczynski, who created a hit with Babylon 5, but... that was about 20 years ago. Given the Wachowskis’ penchant for long-winded dialogue and high-minded philosophical ideas that teenage boys find radical, could the series pull it off?
Settle in, because this is going to be a long-winded love letter to Sense8’s first season.
