      Great review. I think you hit the nail on the head with it weakness, it simply spent to much time basking in emotional indulgences. leaving views holding on, wondering where it's going, for them them to discover nothing.

      whilst its world-building was mind-blowing, its actual plotting proved paper thin ... and increasingly a playground for the duo's indulgences and eccentricities, frequently protected under the banner of LGBT progressiveness.

      This is probably the most perfect summary of this ambitiously flawed series I've seen.

      But ultimately I have really enjoyed sense8. I haven't watched this finale yet, but I'm looking forward to concluding the stories.
      I always appreciate creators trying something new and really going for it. I liked Altered Carbon for the same reason. It's a shame they weren't able to carry on but the budget must have been enormous so I can understand why it was axed with such limited viewership; I don't know anybody else that liked it apart from me lol.

      I/we suffered through half a season (under protest) then bailed. It spent far too much time trying to indulge LGBT millennials.

      Could've been amazing, but there's pretty much zero story after the first season.

      Netflix still trying to figure out where $230,000,000 actually went as its a no one cast, with poor writing, sure there's lots of locations but it isn't that expensive.

      In comparison The Crown costs similar to make but has a stellar cast and rebuilt huge sets and had the costumes hand made ye olde way.

      Tend agree with the review. Such a shame as it could have been so much better. More JMS less Wackiness...

      Agree with Cas assessment, it could have been brilliant like Season 1 which was like *WOW* but it lost it's way in season 2 for me and I stopped a couple of episodes in back then. Instead of working on a better plots to keep us hooked it turned into orgy after orgy..PLEASE!
      We have pornhub for that!
      On another aspect I understand the LGBT thing being pushed down out throats by the liberal elite by there is only so much you can take. Hey, not to step on anyone toes you get the sense being hetrosexual will end up being a crime in the next 500 years *YAWNS*
      Take it this will not be shown on primetime slt on some Saudi Arabian channel LOL!
      ENJOY! :)
