After that Christmas special when about 75% of the running time seemed to be montage sequences, it’s getting difficult to what’s a clip from Sense8 season two and what’s a trailer for it. We’re reliably informed this is a trailer. This is the very expensive-looking, globetrotting show from the Wachowskis (The Matrix Trilogy) and J Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) about a group of impossibly good-looking twenty-somethings from all over the world who were all born at exactly the same time, and who can now communicate telepathically with each other and swap talents. There are a LOT of montages – it’s kinda the show’s stick – and some of them end up looking like orgies.
Sense8 stars Toby Onwumere, Tina Desai, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Jamie Clayton, Tuppence Middleton, Donna Bae, Brian J. Wright, Max Riemel and Terrence Mann, and launches globally on Netflix on Friday 5 May.
