“Sense8”

The Wachowski siblings have come out with a new work for Netflix Originals called “Sense8.” The Wachowski are most known for their involvement in “The Matrix” trilogy, “V for Vendetta,” and “Cloud Atlas.”

“Sense8” is the story of eight people separated by thousands of miles, but all connected by the mind. From the beginning, this story starts out with a literal bang.

This is the journey of how the people went off not knowing what these telepathic connections are to having something to fight for, their humanity.

My favorite thing about this show is how it talks about what it means to be human. It covers topics like the LGBT community, what it means to love, AIDS, and much more.

An evil corporation called the Biologic Preservation Organization is after the special group of people to kill them, or lobotomize them and use their open minds to kill other “senseates.”

If you're interested in an action packed thriller, Sense8” is the show to watch.

 

“Once Upon A Time”

Emma Swan's life has been nothing but a happy ending. But after she is reunited with Henry, her son whom she gave up for adoption 10 years ago, on the night of her 28th birthday, Henry is in desperate need of her help because he believes, from reading a storybook full of fairytales, that she is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. According to Henry, they sent her away from the enchanted forest to protect her from a curse that the Evil Queen put on the kingdom. Emma refuses to believe him but soon finds out that his home town of Storybrooke, Maine, is more than it seems. In Storybrooke all the classic characters we all know and love are frozen in time with no memories of their former lives, except for the Evil Queen (Regina), who is the town's mayor and Henry’s adoptive mother. Emma starts to uncover the truth of her past, and she will have to accept her destiny to save everyone she loves in Storybrooke.

My favorite things about this show are how it shows storybook characters in a new light and how they all come from different backgrounds but are still connected in some way. If you watch a Disney fairytale you see Easter eggs (secret connection between movies) that are connected but with “Once Upon A Time,” they show how each story is connected.

If you are interested in seeing what happens in the fairytales we all know and love after the credits roll, this is the show for you.
