Storyline

In the year 2043, scavenger James Cole (Aaron Stanford) has been recruited by a team of "Project Splinter" scientists led by physicist Katarina Jones (Barbara Sukowa), to travel back in time to the year 2015, and stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as the "Army of the 12 Monkeys". In Cole's original time-line, the virus caused a plague that resulted in the death of seven billion humans in the year 2017, and its on-going mutations will mean the eventual end of the human race. In the 2015 time-line, Cole will meet and enlist the help of brilliant virologist Dr. Cassandra "Cassie" Railly (Amanda Schull); the two are brought together because a recording mentioning Cole, that Cassie made after the viral outbreak, is uncovered by Jones in the future time-line, prompting her to select Cole for the mission.

Masterpiece Time Travel Tv Show
25 June 2018 | by WandererQSee all my reviews

One of my greatest regrets regarding TV shows, is that I didn't watch 12 Monkeys sooner. It surpassed any expectation I could have about it, although the beginning of the first season didn't look that promising (maybe it had a slow pace, maybe too little things were explained), oh well, the sequels surely are totally worth watching. 12 Monkeys is so complex so well defined when you look at it as a whole, the plot, the ideas and themes expressed through brilliant acting... I know, it sounds too good, but it is really one of the most underestimated good sci-fi TV show, and it should receive all the appreciation for every amazing element it contains. Also, it's extremely sad to see that it has such a low rating on IMDB just because of the ratings it has received in 2015, after only 1 or just 3 episodes appeared... when this TV show has a lot more to offer and it should've been "judged" at least after the entire 1st season. And it's not only that... I saw that many people complained how they liked the 1995 movie but the tv series disappointed them and I think that they simply can't be compared, it started with the same concept but there are lots of differences and the show really went with the story on its own way. I think they should've give it a chance and wait for more episodes before rating it with 1 or 2 stars...
