12 Monkeys..tv show

Anyone else watch this on syfy?

I thought it was pretty good.
It was interesting. I will give it a few weeks trial run.
Not sure it will work long term...

I watched it. I liked it. I will keep watching. I'm a big fan of the movie, but I don't know how they will sustain a series for very long.

They couldn't find a man who could match Brad Pitts chops.

Nice choice. Emily Hampshire is also over on Schitt's Creek doing a fair impression of April from Parks and Recreation.

Thought I had read it was going to have a 13 week run but a) not sure if that the series or a season and b) I can't find where I read it - though it was the wikipedia entry but it's not there now.

Re: 12 Monkeys..tv show

IMDB is saying that some of the actors are signed on for ten episodes, which does not include Cole and Cassie for some off reason. But then I do like the odd magic episode where the "stars" are not the all focus.

I can't believe they got away with that just by changing the spelling.

Re: 12 Monkeys..tv show

Schitt's creek is more subtle than I thought it would be.

Can some one tell me if the brother is gay or just well groomed and ultra wealthy?

It seems like his character is gravitating towards Emilys unless he likes boys.

**Sigh**

IMDB is also claiming 13 episodes on it's season page, but it only has episode names for the first ten episodes, which is why they are only giving the actors credits for the first ten.

No they got away with the name by finding it in various phone books according to various news articles before the show first aired.

Re: 12 Monkeys..tv show

Did anyone else take advantage of the 24 hour stream of episodes 2 online and on demand? Felt much better about after watching both than I did after just episode 1

Re: 12 Monkeys..tv show

I only watched the first 15 minutes... it was a beat by beat repeat of the movie. I've already seen the movie many times, so it didn't hook me to keep going.

Re: 12 Monkeys..tv show

Can't comment on the actual show as the episode is on the PVR to watch but it's interesting that it's on Showcase (in Ontario at least) instead of the Space Channel.

Showcase seems to do a better job of sci-fi than Space does on occasions. It showed Continuum and Defiance and various quality sci-fi movies frequently show up in the schedule.

Episode 2, was a little better , but also showed me the ceiling.

I now know not to over expect.

Its just going to be about running and blowing up shit but I'm good with that.

Either they don't have a lot of money to play with, or there's a big episode somewhere in the middle they blew their wad on.

First two episodes weren't too bad. Some bits followed the movie a little too closely, and the acting is... uneven. I'll keep watching.
