Something different.
Sense8 will be released June 5. 
Will this effect Free Fall and a possible sequal?
(People looking up Max on the internet will discover FF and watch it).
Someone on Imbd mentioned this.

What do you guys think?

On the facebooksite someone asked if there will be a sequal or not. They answered that there will be one.
(Kommt der 2 Teil oder nicht? Answer: Kommt.).

TV Review: ‘Sense8′


Brian Lowry

TV Columnist

It’s easy to see why Netflix would jump at a series from the Wachowskis and science-fiction writer J. Michael Straczynski, even if the credits are a spellchecker’s nightmare. Yet while the streaming service was no doubt hoping for “The Matrix,” in commercial terms, it wound up with something closer to “Jupiter Ascending” and “Cloud Atlas” — or worse, its own “Marco Polo.” A dense sci-fi construct that’s poorly explained through three episodes, “Sense8” bears some resemblance to Fox’s short-lived “Touch,” infusing a sense of global interconnectedness with mystical mumbo-jumbo. But the main problem, simply, is that the show doesn’t make much sense.

The extra-long premiere opens by seeking to establish the basic premise, which involves eight disparate people — ethnically diverse and geographically spread across the world — being joined in a vague manner that allows them to share experiences and knowledge. That opens, somewhat promisingly, with their “mother” (Daryl Hannah) being hunted down by a shadowy bad guy-type, subsequently appearing to each of her far-flung progeny in strange visions.

After that, however, “Sense8” becomes a pretty mundane, chaotic soap opera, following the lives of its various characters without doing much to advance what binds them. Yes, Naveen Andrews (whose connection to “Lost” is clearly no accident, given Netflix’s data-driven approach) gradually begins appearing and dropping cryptic clues, but this show is so tiresomely put together, it’s enough to make one long for the second season of “Heroes.”

While scattering the key players far and wide — and shooting in eight different cities — is certainly ambitious, activity shouldn’t be confused with achievement, as the legendary basketball coach John Wooden used to say; rather, jumping among those plots makes the whole enterprise feel disjointed. Characters do intersect, fleetingly, but based on the pace of these first three chapters, those who choose to invest in the full 12-episode ride to reach the nexus where the trains finally meet pretty much will have made that commitment from the outset.

The characters, in fact, seem heavily defined by their locations, the most interesting, relatively speaking, being Nomi (Jamie Clayton), a transgender woman in San Francisco who finds herself in the most jeopardy; Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), a closeted telenovela star in Mexico; and Kala (Tina Desai), a woman in Mumbai on the verge of getting married.

The press notes colorfully describe them as being “hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them,” but like a lot here in the early going, all that must be taken on faith. Then again, faith is clearly what inspired Netflix, having no doubt surveyed its mysterious metrics and recognized that the collaboration of the Wachowskis and Straczynski (whose diverse credits include another numerical series, “Babylon 5”) on a sci-fi project would be catnip to a subset of its subscriber base.

It’s understandable that, principally working in features, the Wachowskis would revel in the freedom an episodic series provides to tell a story in a more protracted fashion. There’s a fine line, however, between filmmakers taking their time and trying viewers’ patience, which, initially, is the category in which “Sense8” most directly belongs.

TV.com's 11 Most Anticipated New Series for Summer 2015

With sunny weather that can literally burn your skin, backyard barbecues forcing you to eat unmentionable animal parts, and children running rampant with no school to show them reasonable bounds, you need something to get you excited for summer. So I figured I would do my civic duty and give you two handfuls of reasons to get excited about summer by doling out the only thing I know about: television!

Below you'll find 11 new shows that should keep summer from being a total bore, so cancel that trip to DisneyWorld and get on the couch like the rest of us.



2. Deutschland 83 (SundanceTV)
WHEN IT'S ON: Wednesdays starting June 17 at 11pm on SundanceTV

WHO'S IN IT: Jonas Nay, Maria Schrader, Alexander Beyer, Sonja Gerhardt, and more Germans you probably don't recognize.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: It's 1983 and an East German spy is sent to West Germany to get military secrets. And also maybe party.

WHY WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT: Damn, that trailer is HOT. This drama is the first German-language series to be broadcast in the United States, so since you weren't there when the Berlin Wall came down, be a part of history as television's equivalent to that is broken. But seriously, this looks great and it's already getting a lot of acclaim internationally.


1. Sense8 (Netflix)
WHEN IT'S ON: Netflix will dump all 12 episodes of the first season out on Friday, June 5. Make sure your favorite pizza-delivery place is on speed dial.

WHO'S IN IT: It's a cast that would make the United Nations proud! Canadian actor Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe), British actress Tuppence Middleton (Black Mirror), Korean actress Bae Doona (Jupiter Ascending), Spanish actor Miguel Ángel Silvestre, British actor Aml Ameen, Indian actress Tina Desai (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), German actor Max Riemelt, and American transgender actress Jamie Clayton. The Wachowskis (The Matrix) created and wrote the series.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Eight strangers from around the globe find themselves inexplicably linked as they begin to share selves. Let me explain; they can feel what the others feel, and share skill sets. Why? We don't know, man, we don't know!

WHY WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT: One of the most impressive trailers of any of the summer shows has us refreshing our Netflix pages like our lives depend on it. The Wachowskis are notoriously hit and miss (mostly misses recently), but they do have a great eye for science-fiction and gorgeous action. If the story is merely decent, this should be a series we're finished with in a few days.
