SENSE8, Season 2 Trailer: What Is Going On?

I confess: I watched the first four episodes of Season 1 of Sense8 on Netflix, and then placed it on my back burner. The visual compositions of the Wachowskis are undoubtedly striking, but the hyper-activity of the storyline, jumping around between different people around the world who are somehow linked together, left my feeble mind overwhelmed.

Is it time to give the series another shot? A trailer for season 2 of the series has just dropped, and it makes me want to watch the entirety of season 1 as soon as possible.

Did you watch season 1? Did you find it fascinating ... compelling .. intriguing? Or was your reaction less positive?

I liked the first season. Not perfect, but interesting and better executed than Cloud Atlas (which I also like for the most part). I didn't like the Christmas Orgy they released, but the second season trailer has me interested again.

Love this show, despite its flaws. It's definitely worth giving it another shot.

Thanks! I liked CLOUD ATLAS for what it was trying to do on a large scale, so it sounds like I should give SENSE8 another try.

Wow, OK, I will!

If you like homogeneous feel-good diversity and people getting kicked by buses I say go for it.

Best advice: just go with the flow of the show, don't overthink, don't actively try to put any particular thing in its proper box, etc. It all comes together on its own steam, and there really isn't anything - each scene taken on its own - that's confusing. It's only trying to grasp the bigger picture that's elusive, and the show is one of the best in terms of taking advantage of its streaming platform to disregard the usual episodic narrative goalposts. Instead, each hour of Sense 8 is just...another hour of Sense 8. It's not really divided into specific hour-ish narrative boxes, it more treats it's story as an uninterrupted novel.

This advice is almost a parallel to the gender/identity fluidity theme of the show - just go with the flow, don't compartmentalize, and you just might understand it all without even trying.
