I've been meaning to make myself watch that other Netflix drama called Bloodline but I can just never start it for some reason.

I'm not sold on the oremise.

But I'll give anything by JMS at least a one season try.

Big thumbs up from me. The scifi isn't too heavy, instead it focuses on the characters which is where this shines. Very different people, you don't always identity with them, they aren't always nice.

I don't want to ruin any part of the show, but I will warn everyone of sexy times. Sense8 doesn't care if you are uncomfortable with some scenes.

I am enjoying it so far. In the first few episodes I feel it is spending waaaaaay too much time with certain characters such as the transgender character and not enough on others that I am interested in. I understand Lana Wachowski is transgender herself so it is an issue close to her heart, I just feel like in the first few episodes they have spend way too much time on that character and the politics.

When you arrive on a most musical scene STOP!!!. I rather like the orchestra piano music but the visuals that follow are not worth watching.

To Ender 7720. Meh, that scene was a little awkward but it was also beautiful. That's the best word in my mind to describe this show, if you watch it all the way through, absolutely beautiful

Finished it up yesterday. I enjoyed the second half of the season more than the first half. Admittedly some characters are more interesting to me than others.

After I finished the season I realized that the story was practically at the same place it was in the first episode. I felt like I watched all of these episodes to really only learn little tiny bits of what the show is actually about. I wish they would have spent more time on Whispers and that whole storyline.

I'll watch next season, I just hope it picks up more.

Finished a binge watch. Really slow start that gets better as it goes but still a slow burn kinda thing. I wasn't a fan of all the gay sex scenes at first but I got used to it and I have to admit, became a fan of Lito and Hernando's relationship. They are such a sweet couple.

Is it just me or were ALL the actors in the Kenyan storyline amazing? I think every one of them really nailed it.

As for that most musical scene, don't stop. If you can't stand the visuals, just close your eyes and bask in the glory that is Beethoven's Emperor Concerto.

I feel like Wolfgang is under/mis-used. We already have a fighter in Sun and Will the cop also does some of the fighting for the group. What does the professional locksmith, thief and world class safe cracker get used for? Just another fighter. We see handcuffs get picked twice in the show and both times were done by the cop, not Wolfgang. I want to see more breaking and entering from him.

The look on Will's face when Lito tells him "we had sex", PRICELESS!

It sounds like season 2 is a go so I'm looking forward to it.
