A Max for all Senses

.
You go into anything Sense8 underestimating the sex appeal of Max Riemelt and you're bound to come out the other end deeply ashamed of yourself, and sure enough all of my pre-finale posting focused on Miguel Angel Silvestre missed the real star, aka Max's ability to make everything he comes into contact with an erotic extravaganza. Shame on my Wolfgang blinders. I don't want to dive into spoilers in case any of you haven't watched the finale yet but I went looking and couldn't find a gif of my favorite moment from the finale anywhere and I needed it, so I made it. but it's spoilery. So we'll  just go ahead and hit the jump for it...



That's how they worked out Kala's inability to choose - fuck choosing! Have everything! And that was the lesson of the entire finale really in a nutshell. They threw everything and the sexy kitchen sink into it, fan-service out the yahoo, which only makes sense since Sense8 (say sense three times real fast) only came back because of fan outcry. If you're a fan I imagine this nearly three hour finale will make you pretty happy.

So have y'all watched it yet? Thoughts?

I definitely didn’t underestimate his sex appeal and still I was utterly impressed.. though my crush over dates to 2013’s Free Fall of course.. and yes, I watched the finale last night and it made me pretty happy. And now I’m daydreaming with Max Riemelt, which is not a bad thing..

Polyamory: ruining dumb love triangle plots, since, like, forever.

Max Riemelt! SWOON! (Check him out showing a very dark side in Berlin Syndrome)

It's very much for the fans. The characters we LOVE all get their happy endings, literally. The men are absolutely gorgeous. Max would have chemistry with a toaster and his scene with Rajan and Kala are off the charts. The plot never made a lick of sense, but the characters, everything single one of them, were fully formed and beautiful. I'll miss them.

Kala who? I'm totally shipping Wolfgang and Rajan now, LOL. Purab Kohli, who plays Rajan, is also a dish--yum!
