The second season of the Netflix series Sense8 was released on May 5th. Even though I didn’t get to binge watch it, I did finish it at 1am Monday night. I reviewed season 1 and the holiday special here and here. I liked season 1 and I loved the holiday special. But season 2 is the best the show has ever been.
Fangirls, as you may or may not recall, I reviewed a show called Sense8. You can see the review here. Basically, even though it had some flaws, it’s also incredible for several reasons. It has amazing representation and it has a super stressful but super beautiful plot. It takes the knowledge somewhere out there people have the same birthday to the milisecond, and it expands it, connecting those people mentally and physically and emotionally. They are called clusters but more importantly most clusters become a family. The show follows the newest cluster as they discover this new world and run from danger. And this year, they gave us a two hour Christmas special.
Merry Christmas, Fangirls! Nothing says Christmas like some comics and a German, child stealing, goat devil. Luckily, Image Comics have combined those two things for us! What joy! I love the old folk tale of the creature Krampus, and was excited to hear that Image was bringing him to life in an interesting tale including many a Santa Clauses and evil sugar plum fairies!
