12 Monkeys (TV show) on SyFy
« on: May 31, 2016, 08:39:29 AM »
I didn't see a preexisting thread.

Anyone else a fan?  I find this to be an incredibly well-done show, better than expected from SyFy.  If you like science fiction or time travel, this is fantastic IMO.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I know you and I have talked about this show in the TV thread. I totally dig this show and think it's really well done. I'd never have imagined they'd be able to take the material from the book/movie and turn it into what they have.

Very neat show.

Didn't know there was a TV series.  Even though the movie sucked, the premise was actually pretty cool, so this might be worth checking out.

This show does a good job of not relying on the movie for too much other than the basic premise and character names. And it's expanded so far beyond the scope of the movie now, it's pretty cool.

It's a cool watch.

TBH, I like this show a metric shit ton more than the film.  The film was messy and all over the place.

I think that Brad Pitt gave an interesting performance, and that has made it stick out more in the memories of some fans than the actual film warrants.

I completely agree. Had Pitt not had that performance I don't think the movie would have been even tolerable, he made it interesting. The show is a total different monster and thus far has done nothing but impress.

I loved the 'Groundhog Day' props they threw in there....that was a funny scene.

Just read that season 3 will hit in May, and that the show has been renewed for a fourth and final season to follow.

Also, the entirety of season 3 will drop in three consecutive days (4 episodes on the debut, the next 3 the next day, and the final 3 the next day).

Kinky.

What an odd way to air a season. It's more like a mini series format. They must realize the 'binge watch' culture and may be testing a new series delivery system?

Either way, pumped for that and that they have a 4th season coming.

That was the exact reason given.

Agreed. Season 1 took a while to draw me in, but season 2 and 3 were fabulous.
