I know we all love *that* scene, but I fond the scene where Victor Ziegler tries explaining everything away as a hoax to be even more intense. Everything about it is so perfectly ambiguous:
>satanic sex cult was just a bunch of dudes having a good time, and the incident with Bill was nothing but a big show that they put on to deter him from coming back
>the chick who "sacrificed" herself was just another actress, and her death was a completely unrelated drug overdose that had nothing to do with her membership in the sex cult
>Bill's pianist friend was just thrashed up a tad but is safely back in Seattle, unfortunately he just happens to be impossible to contact
Also, Kubrick general.

Netflix Picks Up Wachowskis/Georgeville’ Sci-Fi Drama "Sense8 "With 10-Episode Order
By NELLIE ANDREEVA
The Wachowskis’ new sci-fi drama project Sense8 has landed at Netflix
with a 10-episode order for a debut on Netflix Instant in late 2014.
The series is produced by Georgeville TV, Reliance Entertainment/Motion
Picture Capital’s TV studio, in association with J. Michael Straczynski’s
This marks the first foray into TV series for the Wachowski siblings, the
masterminds of The Matrix franchise, who are teamed with with sci-fi veteran
Straczynski (Babylon 5).
"Sense8" is described as “a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted”
that incorporates Wachowskis’ storytelling style. “Andy and Lana Wachowski
and Joe Straczynski are among the most imaginative writers and gifted visual
storytellers of our time,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
Added the Wachowskis, “We’re excited to work with Netflix and Georgeville
Television on this project, and we’ve wanted to work with Joe Straczynski for
years, chiefly due to the fact his name is harder to pronounce than ours, but
also because we share a love of genre and all things nerdy.”
They also shed some light on how the series was conceived. “Several years ago,
we had a late night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites
and divides us, and out of that paradox Sense8 was born.”
