I didn't really like Kevin until 2 episodes ago but he's warmed on me so much plus, as a kid, he seems to have been the most neglected out of all of them. I will get frustrated if all of Kate's storylines revolve around her being fat though.
Aside from the split narrative and everyone born on the same day bit, I don't really see the comparison with Sense8 personally.
Perhaps I'm focusing too much on the diversity aspect, and the scene with Kevin on the flight, where Kate felt the same turbulence he did, reminded me of the interconnectedness of many Sense8 scenes. Sense8 similarities (or lack thereof) aside, this show is exceptional as a standalone series. Randall is my personal favourite, but Jack deserves a 'World's Greatest Dad' coffee mug. He is such an awesome father.
I hope that doesn't happen, and with Toby by her side (who has to be the most awesome secondary character on the show), I think her story arc should be more multi-dimensional.
