  • Brian Lowry

    Sense8 becomes a pretty mundane, chaotic soap opera, following the lives of its various characters without doing much to advance what binds them.

    Variety Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    It’s a worldwide story that manages to look and feel completely mundane, with boring visuals and inconsistent performances.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The problem with Sense8 is that it’s glacially paced and not nearly as riveting as it thinks it is.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Brilliant as so much of Sense8 is, it’s also at brief times inexplicably lame.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    A globe-spanning series that offers in ambition, action and visual panache what it lacks in coherence, fleshed-out characters and plausible dialogue.

  • Margaret Lyons

    The more you care about dialogue, the less you will like it. Visually, though, the show is mesmerizing and immersive, particularly in moments of either complete chaos (underground kick-fighting match, raaaah!) or shocking stillness. The performances, particularly Tuppence Middleton as our pixie DJ and Freema Agyeman as Nomi's girlfriend, are terrific, but they're also squandered on stories that lack any real depth or texture.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    Maybe if the individual fragments in Sense8 were better written, the uber-plot wouldn’t matter quite as much. The Sense8 stories are beautifully shot, including some fabulous action sequences; but they’re rooted in familiarity, formula, and cultural clichés.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's aiming for something big, and while these three episodes give me no idea if they can ultimately hit the mark, they're also more interesting than they have any right to be considering how incoherent so much of it is.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Melissa Maerz

    This is a show that has the most lofty objective of all--getting people around the world to care about one another--and yet it struggles with the much simpler goal of making viewers care about the characters. It’s ambitious and passionate and very deeply flawed.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joshua Alston

    With so many crudely drawn characters, most of whom never interact face to face, and a less-is-more approach to explaining the origin and goal of the sensate experiments, Sense8’s sumptuous visuals are its only consistent selling point. But usually, the look is all Sense8 needs, since it has far too many moving pieces to enroll the audience in trying to assemble them into a larger picture.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    The plots of Sense8 dovetail and separate with a fluidity that’s a characteristic of good storytelling and editing. Some of the subplots are more interesting than others.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    Beautifully shot and sublimely silly, Sense8 is slower than “The Matrix” and not nearly as thrilling.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    The ultimate paradox of Sense8 is that it can give away so little about its ultimate destination in three hours of screen time, and still be seductive enough to make hour four an attractive proposition. Full Review
  • Todd VanDerWerff

    Sense8 is a show forever trapped between two things--its core artistic impulses and its need to over-explain everything that happens within its confines. That makes it at once beautiful and maddening, either a complete travesty or a whacked-out masterpiece--and sometimes both in the same scene. Full Review
  • Liz Shannon Miller

    Overall, the first season of Sense8 doesn't quite work the way it should. But it's hard not to step back and say, "Goddamn--the balls on that show." It's the pole-vaulter who knicks the bar with her ankle on the descent

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    The filmmaking here is fluid and the performances are strong across the board. Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The siblings have frequently struggled to fully realize their ideas, too often failing to find the exact right balance between the silly and the sublime. (Multi-culti dance party in Matrix Reloaded, I’m looking at you.) With Sense8, they finally achieve that harmony.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Slightly mad, madly majestic and overwhelming, Netflix's new offering Sense8 is one of the most ambitious sci-fi dramas on TV since the Battlestar Galactica reboot in 2004.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Deborah Day

    Despite the lack of A-list Hollywood star power, the mysterious show boasts strong characters and compelling actors bringing them to life. And though the story sometimes meanders about like a child at play in a schoolyard, the premise holds enough intrigue to call viewers back to experience more.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    [The stories] mostly do stand on their own. Some are better than others.... a winning cast.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    A fascinating, globe-trotting epic that still manages to feel very intimate.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Alee Karim

    Sense8's ensemble is contemporaneous, creating an exciting real time tension as the characters take advantage of their seven partners' unique specialties and experiences to unravel mysteries in their own respective scenarios.

    Under The Radar Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    There are no casual touches in Sense8, and the Wachowskis' fashionable and unsurprising "fight the power" message meshes tediously with typical action beats that are further glossed over with said narrative parallels.
