OK, color me intrigued -

Netflix has hired Joe Straczynski (creator of Babylon 5) and the Wachowskis (creators of The Matrix and other mind-bendy SF) to create a new original SF series called "Sense8"

Story here: http://www.engadget.com/2013/03/27/netflix-wachowskis-sense8/

This makes my SF fandom sense tingle. And that hasn't happened for a good while now...

I'm obviously looking forward to it. ^_^ Hopefully JMS can keep the Wachowskis in check - we want more Matrix 1, a bit less 2 & 3. =:) It's not that the sequels were poor films, just rather flabbily edited, where the first really popped, with almost Coen-like tightness. (Not that they've always been perfectly reliable, of course, but so it goes) And, of course, I'm hoping their styles do indeed mesh well, so they're energising each other.

Presumably Netflix will be wanting first run rights to it, but I certainly hope they'll release it subsequently on iTunes/BD/DVD - perhaps once the first season/batch is complete.

It's quite a potential team-up, in any event. I wonder how it came about? Was it Netflix's idea to bring them together, or did the Wachowskis or JMS suggest it?

Ah well. We'll see what happens. ^_^
