The Definitive Ranking Of The Nine "Sense8" Story Lines
The Wachowskis' new foray into television has a lot to offer. But when you have eight main characters in eight different parts of the world IN ADDITION TO the overarching sci-fi plot, you're going to have to kick your attention span into high gear!
Even before "Sense8" quietly premiered on June 5, devoted Netflix subscribers were already stoked for the promises of amazing cinematography, an expansion of the boundaries of science fiction, and the return of Daryl Hannah.
What the Wachowskis delivered was a visually gorgeous, well-acted, and expansive series of character studies, all united by a somewhat under-explained thread involving Terrence Mann and Naveen Andrews.
What we have are nine mostly unrelated plots, each with its own benefits and flaws. If you're considering tuning in to "Sense8," here is a ranking of the story lines so you know which are worth the time and…well, which can be skimmed.

8.London, England, and Reykjavík, Iceland / Riley Blue
7.Seoul, South Korea / Bak Sun
