User Reviews

 
Quality programming.
22 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a sad truth today that complicated story lines result in low viewership for programs. 12 Monkeys arc and continuing build of that arc are the result of an overarching and very cleverly written intentionally time limited design.

The characters have depth and real emotions. The story "makes sense" inside the framework built by the creators. That's important for good SCIENCE fiction. At the same time, that makes it hard for some audiences to appreciate.

It's really, IMHO, a shame that SYFY forced them to make this "like" 12 Monkeys and they have fortunately gone well beyond the story arc presented in that book and film. But I suspect many people have just assumed it's a rehash of the movie. It's not.

If you want to watch something that has depth, well rounded characters, and a good story - this is the place to find it.
