Netflix is getting a, deserved, reputation for producing incredibly addictive content that is particularly suited to binge viewing. The first season of Orange is the New Black is possibly one of the greatest TV shows of our generation. Yes, I said it. Then there are stronger and weaker episodes but overall it is still incredible. Anyway enough about that, this post is to talk about the show splitting opinion, Sense8. 

Eight strangers from cities around the globe begin having experiences that defy expectation.

If ever a summary didn't sum up a show, this is it. Sense8 builds throughout the series a very intricate web of storylines explaining how these eight individuals are linked and can experience what the others experience. Not a great synopsis from me either. Basically what I am trying to say is to truly understand the show, you need to watch it.
Let's quickly talk about the first four episodes.

Sorry Netflix, I love you and I love Sense8, but the first four episodes are not good. They are confusing and immediately draw you into a far-fetched world for which it is hard to feel empathy.

Enough of that, let's talk about five onwards.

Good lord, it gets addictive and amazing and shocking and amazing and emotional and amazing. Did I say it's amazing enough? It might take it's time, but viewers that stick with it are rewarded well. Each storyline has it's own nuances and whilst non of them are stronger or weaker, my personal favourite is definitely the relationship between Wolfgang and  Kala. Their chemistry is just incredible, and the pay out for waiting to see how their relationship unfolds is great!

To be honest I don't really want to say too much else as I don't want to ruin it, I basically want to say give it a chance and I will be incredibly surprised if you don't fall in love with it as much as I have.

I am very glad the show has a second season and wait impatiently. While we wait, and because I am not above objectifying the occasional male, here is Wolfgang.
