Was that a phenomenal start to the series or what? 12 Monkeys Season 1 Episode 1 quickly established its world and characters making you forget all about the feature film that inspired it.
No disrespect to the classic Terry Gilliam movie, but the madness and confusion of Willis’ hero has been replaced by a more focused “man on a mission” in Aaron Stanford. Ultimately, I think that creative decision will serve the series well.
The trippy nature of the film was fine for 127 minutes. However, that would drive me bananas (see what I did there?) if it lasted 13 hours. Syfy’s on a roll guys… they have another winner with 12 Monkeys!
