I'm at episode 5.

I can't recall how much local languages were used in season 1, but I'm pretty tired of how the smallest of characters talk perfect English, despite the thick accent. I understand why they're doing it, but I can't help it pulling me out of the experience.

People within a cluster having a single language makes perfect sense, but I think it would give the show a more global reach and a sense of unity among the fans if all these languages are represented, even just a bit. There are subtitles, sure, but Netflix seems also lazy with licensed content that uses foreign languages, the "speaking Arabic" and whatnot in subtitles.

edit

And it might be just in my head, but it feels Western in more ways than just English. It's the language itself being used, certain mannerisms, the music, etc. They're small moments here and there, but they've stood out.

What was Sense8 about again? I can't remember if i saw season 1 or not. No point in watching Season 2 if i haven't seen season 1.
