Continues the excellence of Season 1 while expanding the scope of the show
22 May 2017 | by themanofhopeSee all my reviews

Sense8: Season 2 does a fantastic job at continuing the quality level work of Season 1 while also expanding upon the mythological story line of the show as well as expanding the overall scope. This was my most anticipated season of television this year and rightfully so. No series on television has grabbed me the way season 1 of Sense8 did since Breaking Bad. The characters and the emotion put behind each and every one of them is really what makes this series so great and Season 2 is no exception as the cluster is closer then ever. The cinematography and direction is gorgeous as usual. Every frame just looks so mesmerizing and perfect to the point where you could understand if they hung it in an art gallery. The acting is excellent on everyone's part and although Nomi still is the weakest character in the group she definitely grew on me and became a more likable and interesting character. The music montages this season were absolutely breathtaking and every song they put in the season gave me goosebumps from Gert Tabner's "In Need" to the show's new rendition of "What's Up". The story this season was also very engaging however some of the story line involving BPO and Whispers did get slightly over complicated. The action sequences were fantastic as usual however only two truly stood out in the season. The sequence involving Sun chasing her brother on a motorcycle and the sequence in which the cluster fights another cluster. However there wasn't one truly defining action sequence compared to some of the greats that the first season featured. The pacing was excellent throughout the entire season however the finale of the season did seem a bit too over bloated and rushed compared to the perfect pacing of its predecessors. In conclusion, Sense8 : Season 2 expands upon the fantastic story line of the first season while widening the scope of the narrative, with some of the best cinematography and direction currently on television, excellent performances, creative and beautiful musical montages with perfect pacing throughout although the finale did seem rushed.

Sense8: Season 2 gets a 9.6/10.
