I have finished watching Sense8, so I can now stop flinching away from all y'all's spoilers.

I liked it. Feel free to share any thoughts or cool links. (Therefore there might be spoilers in the comments.)

Okay, trans girl hacker with a drawl. 😍 How awesome to see someone who looks like me as a protagonist (okay, younger and cuter than me, but still 😍.)

Seriously, though, you don't take trans girl hacker and take away her agency for 4 episodes. Not cool.

There was a a good critique of the 'multi-kulchi' parts of Sense 8. I think Claire Light wrote it. Let me search. http://thenerdsofcolor.org/2015/06/10/sense8-and-the-failure-of-global-imagination/

And hell fucking yes when Nomi's girlfriend calls out the TERF in Dolores Park!

Actually, can we just have a show about Nomi and her girlfriend?

I liked it a lot. It felt like Heroes and Lost. Both of those shows had a lot of storylines that took a while to merge, both were carefully-international with an attractive cast of not-quite-archetypes, both had non-realistic elements that took a while to get explained.

Also, I loved the treatment of the LGBTQI variations of ordinary lives. And I was particularly delighted with the reasonably sympathetic treatment of Daniela the girlfag character.

yes! i have described sense8 as "you know when you were watching heroes, and claire jumped off the building and died and then stood back up and rearranged her bones and was fine? IT'S LIKE THAT."

I loved the women in Delores Park, but the rest of it felt very paint-by-numbers. However, I have watched many ploddy things, so sounds like I should watch it so I can be up with the current interesting culture.
