An ambitious and complex science-fiction show for Syfy to take on, this 12 Monkeys adaptation introduces the plot better than the movie, however it's hard to tell if 12 Monkeys will truly be able to extend the film's plot without buying too much time. At the moment though, 12 Monkeys is an excellent adaptation that take its own spin on the series while maintaining the core personality.

One thing I usually hate about time travel shows (movies) is that I usually don't agree with their interpretation of the time paradox. I don't believe you can change the past. Ever. If you could, you would not exist at the state in the present that allowed for you to go back in the first place. The future-present if predicated by every past action. This is the first show I can recall that's taken this approach. I am on board because of... More

This is the first show I can recall that's taken this approach. I am on board because of that. So why the 3 stars? The acting. Amanda Schull's good (I've liked her since Center Stage and she's great on Suits) but that Aaron Stanford is captain of #TeamTryTooHard. Hopefully he'll calm down now that the show's picked up for another season!

I’ll admit, I haven’t seen the 1995 movie, but I did watch the trailer. While Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis look top-notch, I don’t really feel that it’s a prerequisite for enjoying Syfy’s reimagining of “12 Monkeys.” In fact, I don’t plan to watch the movie because after the first episode I am too invested to risk ruining any of the plot twists for myself! I was hooked within the first few minutes of the pilot. This show is exciting and... More

I’ll admit, I haven’t seen the 1995 movie, but I did watch the trailer. While Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis look top-notch, I don’t really feel that it’s a prerequisite for enjoying Syfy’s reimagining of “12 Monkeys.” In fact, I don’t plan to watch the movie because after the first episode I am too invested to risk ruining any of the plot twists for myself! I was hooked within the first few minutes of the pilot. This show is exciting and feels fresh (despite, of course, being a reimagining.) It is fast-paced, but breaks down enough of the plot early on so it’s easy to keep up with the dizzying concepts of time travel. This show blends the grittiness of dystopia and the magic of science fiction in the best way possible. I'll definitely be tuning in for the next episode - I can’t wait to see how this progresses!

12 Monkeys is a post-apocalyptic science fiction show about saving the world. The show is an adaptation of the 12 Monkeys movie and I believe the writers did an amazing job. There is time-travel; there is disease; there is murder, greed and pride... it's an odd mix, but the drink tastes great. I recommend this show to the science fiction lover.

5 stars!!! What a cool new show! Exciting, unexpected, suspense-packed and thrilling. Cool ideas, strange physics... but believable.

Personally I'd say:If you have watched the movie then you know the whole plot,so what's the point of watching it ? I've seen the first 3 episodes and the other thing I'd change is the main actor.
