Did You Know?


Kala and Caphaeus meet for the first time in this episode. Up until this point, the only other Sensate that Kala had met was Wolfgang. See more »


When Kala remembers her birth, the obviously older baby used for the scene already has her umbilical cord cut, tied, and healed. None of the other Sensate babies share this error. See more »


Kala Dandekar: The first time I went into a house like this in Bombay they had no beds, but they had a television as big as this. I mean, how can a TV be more important than a bed?
Capheus: Ah, that's simple. The bed keeps you in a slum. The flat screen takes you out.

What a spectacular final scene. Never seen anything like it before.
13 June 2015 | by SamLTTMSee all my reviews

This show gets better and better with every episode. I can't believe the extraordinary leaps the Wachowskis are taking with this show. They display life in a whole different way than I've ever seen, quite literally in this episode. The final scene brought me to tears.

Granted yes it's very graphic. But life is graphic. The Wachowskis are making one of the most honest and powerful shows I've ever seen and I applaud them for doing that. I hear they have 5 season of the show mapped out and I can't wait to see what else they have to show me.

If you've only seen the first episode and you though it sucked I agree. It's one of those shows that takes a while to get it's feet off the ground. But trust me it gets so much better. It tackles real life issues and really makes you wonder about the things that are possible in this world.
