When I heard that they were going to make 12 Monkeys into a television series, I thought “well this is an odd choice.” Leave it to SyFy to take something that didn’t need a television show and see what happens. (*cough* Dominion) At least they are giving it a go and by the footage seen in the first 9 minutes, the show looks…interesting. As most things on SyFy, I’ll give it a try until it disappoints me.
Here’s the official synopsis for 12 Monkeys:
The show follows the journey of a time traveler, Cole, from the post-apocalyptic future. Using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, Cole arrives in the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate 93.6% of the human race. Will Cole be able to save the fate of mankind or is mankind bound by fate? Taking place in the ravaged future of 2043 and the present day (2015), 12 Monkeys explores themes of destiny, fate, love and the possibility of second chances.
