Season Two - Full Season Discussion - NO Spoilers

Keep in mind that sometimes spoilers may need to be referred to. Please just use spoiler tags as needed.

Made a comment in another thread hoping for episode titles soon and got to wondering (Run! Run away! ) whether there will be overall titles for each season like there were for Babylon 5, often tied to episode titles. Season one for Sense8 would almost certainly be "What's Going On", but "Limbic Resonance" would fit, too, as would "I Am Also A We". In fact, now I'm not so sure about my first choice. Thoughts?

I don't think there will be. Jeremiah didn't have season titles either. I think this aspect will remain exclusive to Babylon 5.

No particular recommendation by JMS regarding how one should watch the new season: https://twitter.com/straczynski/stat...74536945397760

Quote:
@straczynski with Season 2 of #Sense8 drawing near: Which viewing "schedule" would you recommend? 4/3/3? 3/4/3? 3/3/4? 5/5? All at once?

Whatever your heart can stand.
For season 1, he had said in multiple interviews that he suggested one watchs all 12 episodes in a day if possible; otherwise the second best way was to do it 4/4/4 as there were 3 4-episode arcs formed during editing.

And oh yeah, it's clear we shouldn't expect any JMS interviews this time. Just the cast.

I just discovered if you google "sense8 episodes" google displays at the top some of Season 2's titles. I have no idea what is their source because a manual search with those titles finds nothing.

205 is "California Dreamin'"
207 is "As Long As We Win, We're Fine"
211 is "Citizen"

Since this season they shot in California, and "as long as we win" could refer to
the football match we've seen Wolfgang and Felix participate in
, I believe these are legit.

They might be legit but I'm leaning toward not. They show a May *2* release date and if you click on those episode boxes you get information below that top part about episodes of 'Splendido Oro Jewelry' and 'Summer Fashion'.

Wonder if the titles are particularly spoiler-y this season? I looked it up last night and it looked like we got titles about a month before. (edit: but now we know about the convention of them being quotes from the episode - that might be one reason to not release them early. Just as we didn't get the true Christmas Special title ahead of time)

Hahaha, I didn't think of clicking on them

Yeah, there is probably a mix up then!

Ok, but these: http://www.bbfc.co.uk/search/releases/sense8 are the titles.

Ep2: "Who Am I?" 54m 57s
Ep3: "Obligate Mutualisms" 50m 55s

Ep2's makes perfect sense, since that line is featured prominently in both trailers.

What Obligate Mutualisms means: http://courses.biology.utah.edu/feen...cture%2022.pdf - which ties with the sensate phenomenon from a biological perspective.

Let's see if more appear.

Yeah, based on that I've edited the thread titles for those two episodes. I was thinking when watching the new trailer that "Bring it, bitch" would also make a good title (a la 'Smart Money Is On The Skinny Bitch'.

So, who is logging on to watch at 00:01 tonight!?

Definitely going to have a bit of a binge on Friday night. Oh yes. Am still on with my S1 rewatch. If anyone is doing the same, please feed into the thread I started!

For now my plan is to do as I did for the first season - get up at (ugh) 3 AM and watch one episode so as to be part of the 'it's here!' phenomenon. Then another nap, work all day and then maybe finish the season over the weekend. Maybe not, though. I may try to savor it a bit more.

Well, the premiere here is 9.00 AM, so I intend to start with as many episodes as possible on Friday.

Doing a S1 re-watch now, I do not know if I finish, but re-watched a few weeks ago, so I should be fine.

I am participating in a small Danish con in the week end, so I could end up 6-2-2.
