Promo poster for the show
If you love keeping up with your TV shows then you’re in luck. 12 monkeys is a show that you should make a point of seeing. The name sounds a bit off, like maybe it’s an animated thing or the other, or something that you’d expect to find on Nat Geo, but that’s just not the case. The 12 monkeys is an American television series created by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett, it is a Science Fiction drama adaptation of the 1995 film that went by the same name.
The drama tells the story of Cole (Aron Stanford), a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who tries to go against conventional time in a bid to save the world. His means of time travel is dangerous and largely untested; he travels from the future (2043) to present day on a mission find and stop the source of a deadly plague that will wipe out a large part of the earth’s population. The plague itself goes airborne in 2014 and it’s so lethal that it wiped 93.6 percent of the population.
The show explores, with much depth, the themes of fate, destiny, love and the possibility of a second chance. The 12 Monkey’s tale occurs in within two dimensions of time, which I found to be particularly interesting and different, especially for a TV show.
This a must watch if you love drama a bit of action and Sci-Fi. Watch it and find out if Cole will actually save the world or will everyone die? I give it a 7.5
