From what I can tell, Sense8 explores the idea of shared consciousness between eight young people around the world. That’s a cool idea, and it makes for really cool moments of synchronicity between disparate characters. There are some clever effects and editing here, and it looks like they’ll be using those Cloud Atlas-style scene transitions to move from one character to the next.
I also like that the trailer doesn’t reveal too much — evidently the first season of the show will keep the eight main characters separate, but there are forces conspiring to bring them together and other forces that want to kill them.
The series was written by The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski, directed by The Wachowskis, Tom Tykwer, James McTeigue, and Dan Glass. The first season will go up June 5 on Netflix, and I’ll be watching.
