Is this title supposed to be some play on "Sensei"?
On the one hand, The Wachowskis, eh...
On the other hand, JMS with a new TV show, ****ing finally. t:
Also, I *just* found out that Lana is just Larry transgendered.
I would have gone with Lauren myself.

Netflix Picks Up Wachowskis/ Georgeville Sci-Fi Drama ‘Sense8′ With 10-Episode Order
Mods please delete my thread on this, I didnt see this one-
This sounds most intriguing.
This sounds really cool.
netflix and Wachowski? nice
Babylon 5 is one of my favourite shows ever, so I'm in.
For better or worse.
Wachowskis say it's coming out in May. There will be psychic orgies. And they filmed a live birth for it...
In Wake Of Wachowskis Jupiter Disaster, Sarandos Tubthumps Siblings Sense8′
At tonights Chapman University panel on The New Era of Television, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos took a beat during the first few minutes of the symposium to get a good word in about the Wachowskis upcoming new Netflix series Sense8 a quite-needed gesture in the wake of the siblings $200M-plus box office bomb this weekend Jupiter Ascending.
Its the best four hours of anything weve done, asserted Sarandos about the series. Their film reviews have been brutal, and everything after The Matrix didnt go well, but if you look at the earlier cuts of their films before they had to jam them down to 120 minutes, its amazing. Theres a four-hour cut of Cloud Atlas that will blow you away.
Jupiter Ascending deep-sixed at the domestic B.O. this weekend with $18.37M, but it took the No. 1 spot at the foreign B.O. with $33.8M. Still, distrib sources say thats not enough to eventually break even. The film marks the third straight directing misfire by the siblings after their $1.6B franchise The Matrix.
However, hope resides for the VFX visionaries with their 10-episode Netflix Sense8. A source close to the production told Deadline last week that the Wachowskis arent overspending, theyre coming in on time, and theyre wonderful to work with. This is the first time that theyve created a longform series, and it may well work to their creative sensibilities more than film recently. Another source close to the siblings said: Who knows if theyll ever direct a film again? They might have found their niche with episodic drama.
Sense8, which sounds a lot like the Wachowskis karma drama misfire Cloud Atlas ($27.1M domestic B.O., $100M-plus cost), follows eight people around the world who, following a tragic death, are connected mentally and emotionally. As they connect to one another to discover what happened, they are hunted by an evil organization. The series takes place on four continents spanning Chicago, San Francisco, London, Iceland, Seoul, Mumbai, Berlin, Mexico City and Nairobi. The Wachowskis finished shooting in Iceland three weeks ago.
From a budget standpoint and a running time, its every bit as big, if not bigger, than their feature films, Sarandos said about Sense8.
Later, when the conversation segued to diversity in TV, Sarandos not only pointed out how the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black broke down barriers for women of color and the LGBT community, but that theres also a transgender in Sense8. The goal wasnt to be diverse but to be great and different and diversity would follow.
why still no trailer?
Looks kinda convoluted. Don't really have any faith in the Wachowskis any more tbh. Hopefully, Straczynski was able to pull it all together.
as expected. looks good and feels original and fresh. classic Wachowskis
Looks a bit weird for me but some of the visuals are cool.
One of the better looking things the Wachowskis have been involved with in some time.
That trailer was awesome.
