The short answer is yes. It took us awhile before we found our way to this ambitious and epic 12-episode series on Netflix, but “Sense8” slowly drew us in until we were hooked. Like other tales from the Wachowskis, there are elements of sci-fi, martial arts, metaphysics and more. Unlike many stories in these genres, the characters are fully developed, though it takes a long time for their full stories to be revealed.

“Sense8” features eight central characters; eight separate stories that become interwoven. It’s about three episodes in that things begin to gel, but patient viewers will be rewarded the further the story advances. Given the number of reviews already online, we are keeping this short, but suggest that if you enjoy sci-fi, action and human drama, “Sense8” belongs on your Netflix TV shows list.
