    Action 12 Monkeys

    Again, I thought there was a thread about this.

    If anyone can link it here, I can merge them I guess.

    So this is the TV spin off, from the movie of the same name. As is the norm with "time travelling" stories they do end up being written into a corner and you just have to let go of logic and watch it.

    It's not amazingly scripted or acted, but its okay to watch. I cannot see it having the cult following of other series airing at the moment.

    I watched three series back to back. After each one, it could have really ended for good, but they wrote in a new season rather fantastically. I was very surprised they went to season 4, and again I downloaded them all and started working my way through them. They are pretty ridiculous now, and it reminds me of some of the story arcs and fantastic stuff that was written in to Lost. I honestly think the writers were getting together in a room and either all doing large amounts of drugs or getting pissed before scripting the next episode.

    Seems its now a "sci fi origianl" so maybe they bought the rights.

    I download this to watch after the wife had gone to bed, but I think I will delete them now as I haven't started watching it.

    Thanks DJ

    I watched the first season then got bored
    Still sat on my plex and haven't ever managed to watch any further.

    If someone says it's definitely worth the time then i may go for another season to see how it goes.

    Well I am stubborn with many series TBH. I tend to just see them through to the bitter end, and end up suffering from "cancelled" syndrome as a result.

    Its not a bad show, maybe give it a try but if your not hooked or stubborn like me then can it.

    Yeah so many show's get canned I wait till it's had a couple of seasons first. I got board with Altered Carbon and never finished it.
    Black Mirror was good at the start but the last few seasons were shit

    Black Mirror has some tasty episodes, but also a lot of rubbish ones. I think I skipped the star trek copy one without even starting to watch it. The synopsys and screen grab in plex put me off! lol

    I watched all 4 seasons of 12 Monkeys. It was ok. Not absolutely outstanding or anything but ok.

    Aside from that, I rather like Nordic Noir shows. Jordskott was pretty cool and I'm rather enjoying "The Bridge" (Bron | Broen) at the moment which is a Nordic Noir in Swedish and Danish with English subtitles. America did their own version because they're nobheads like that... I'm not going to watch their version.
