A little wrap up for the day. I’ve followed the routine I mentioned in my post earlier and done some work on outlining at lunch time and then this evening another chapter on The Space Watch. I did it a little differently tonight though; I watched some TV and then started work at about nine this evening. I’ve wondered for a while that if I have a time restraint that I’ll be more productive. Tonight it has proved to be the case, but I’m also on a high from wrapping up season two of Sense 8. This show really blows my mind away. It’s so beautifully written, acted, directed, and produced that it’s a true emotional commitment to the show. There have been times during this season that I have been on the edge of my seat, that I have been jumping up and down and fist pumping and cheering the characters on. It’s very few shows or movie that get this response out of me, and Sense 8 is absolutely one of the ones that does and it’s near the top of my favourite all time shows. I cannot wait to see where they take the show from here on out.

I’m calling it a night now, I’m going to read a little before bed and then hopefully do it again tomorrow.

Sense8:Season Two

I am five episodes(including the Christmas special) into the new season of Sense8 on Netflix, and its good. Very good.

I loved the first series. In my opinion in one of the best series of TV I’ve ever seen. It’s beautifully written, directed, and acted. There are very few shows that have the balls to spend most of their first season on character development while only drip-feeding you the overall plot. They pulled it off though, it made the events in the rest of the season more hard-hitting because you knew the characters.

This new season has started at a full speed and kicks the nitrous in when it needs to. I literally jumped at the end of the first episode and have been moved to the edge of my seat on a number of occasions throughout this second season so far.

Now that we know all of the main characters the focus is on the bigger picture, but we’re still seeing the difficulties of the characters lives outside of the main story arc. They’re not fighting these problems alone though, despite the fact that these eight people are spread all over the globe, only two of them are physically together, but with how they can control each others bodies they help each other in difficult situations. Whether it’s the actor having to cause a scene to be a distraction, or the gangster beating the crap out of a threat to a cluster mate, or the bus driver needing help from the martial arts fighter, they can all move into each others bodies and help them out whenever they need them. How they shoot those scenes is fantastic to, it’s very smoothly done.

Once I’ve finished writing for the day I’ll be diving back in again. I’d like to say I’m going to be restrained and not binge watch the rest of the second season today but I’m not sure I’d be being honest with myself if I said that.
