Can Watching an Original Netflix Series Make You a Better Being?!

Thinking about the Netflix Original Series "Sense 8..." How many superlatives can I jam into a sentence? Compelling, mind-blowing, beautiful, intelligent, overwhelming, touching, inspiring, brilliant, powerful. Watching it (we are 2/3 done with season one) is sort of like taking a audio-visual bath that cleanses the senses, airs out and polishes up your soul.

It is conceptually brilliant. Visually stunning. Perfect use of image and sound. Can a television series make you a better human? Watching characters with a heightened sense of empathy and compassion - does just the watching increase your own empathy and compassion for yourself and others?

This series is so "of the moment," and then everything is just pushed forward a bit. You have to go with it. Maybe not everyone can, but if you do, you will be rewarded immensely...

The series is filmed in locations around the world. No CGI. Actual filming on location in Chicago, San Francisco, Mumbai, Berlin, London, Mexico City, Seoul, Reykjavik. 

Created by the Wachowskis of "The Matrix Trilogy."

My favorite parts are just sound and vision... like this stunning  sequence from Episode #4...
