12 Monkeys | Syfy

Looking at the pedigree of the writers and showrunner I don't expect this to be good. I'm expecting over the top drama with material for tweens, teens and young adults. Which would be sad because the source material was pretty fun.

Syfy is that old MMO which lost most of the population at launch but now expects multitudes of people to come flocking back for their free to play additions years later. The brand is ruined.

The reason why 12 monkeys worked as a film is because we knew only as much as we needed for our brains to full in the rest. Spend any more time exploring it and things will start to fall apart

Ahh, a trip down memory lane. From my favorite sequence in the movie. Movie spoilers obviously.

What else can Syfy fuck up? Maybe a 5th Element tv show? And they're so contemporary. I expect their Matrix TV show in another 15 years.

does not look good. looks like its going to suffer from the core problem: how do you drag out a series to infinite length where the story really is 2, maybe 5 hours long max. putting in a romance subplot is also eurgh

It's going to have Zeljko Ivanek in it, it can't be bad....

Seriously though, that guy is in flipping everything lately.

Two episodes downloaded for me last night, only watched the first one so far. If that's what they meant by "marathon"?

First episode wasn't bad, and I agree with spronk, I'm probably going to end up watching the movie this weekend now.

You guys rewatching the movie or watching it the first time? It's one of my all time faves and your statements weren't clear. Got the pilot DVR'ed but not watched it yet - I'm hoping it holds up to SyFy's treatment.

Rewatch for me, and spronk as well it looks like. This is still far and away my favor Brad Pitt role ever. Unless of course I'm feeling a little gay, then it is Legends of the Fall, clearly. So dreamy.

Watched pilot today, it's not awful and I'll keep watching it to see where it goes, though there's an obvious silly love triangle going on.

Favorite as well - although True Romance is a close second. (And likely because it's a smaller role that it's #2 for me)

Just starting it now (12 min into "Splinter" S1E1) - holy crap the number of scenes the lifted nearly perfectly with only minor tweaks from the movie is amazing, I was expecting it to diverge from the source much more - but they're being VERY respectful to it so far, amazing.

You watched episode 2 somehow. Which Vaclav might want to note is called "Mentally Divergent" btw.
