Default Anyone else watch 12 Monkeys?

So just finished the last episode of "12 Monkeys" the other night, and I have to say it was one of the more satisfying SCI FI shows of the last decade.. Started watching back in June, so not super committed to the show.

So overall the show is not really politically formed.. Just the normal SCI FI shows, good vs Evil.. Some twists and turns here and there, not the best acting at all times, but a decent story..

Show gets on its legs about four episodes into season 1, and seems to get better, season three is kinda less interesting than 1,2 &4 but is still pretty decent.

Anyway I'll end with.. I appreciate how well thought out the show is.. Little things that happen in the seasons end up all being minor parts of the last season.. Really good writing in my opinion.. Several of the characters I HATE but that does not kill off the show.. Some are idiots, and I've learned that idiots exist world wide.
Anyone else watch?

Only seen the movie, and it was good. No time for shows these days.

It was a decent series to watch good spin off from the movie.

Yeah I read an interview with the writer or creator of the show and they kept getting pressured by Sci-Fi to make the show longer, but they had the story written to be four seasons and they kept to that rather than take the money and make trash.. I appreciate someone trying to make a good product despite pressure to compromise the quality for personal gain.

Depends what you are watching and how much.. There are a few shows out that are thought provoking. I basically learned manufacturing from "how its made", I knew how to make single items, but the process of making hundreds of the same item is different... If you are sitting watching reality TV your mind is melting in your skull..


Lately I have been watching youtube channels on my TV, so I'll watch a couple "the history guy" videos while stapling boxes or taping envelopes.

Like this one.. I had NEVER heard of a merchant submarine existing in WW-I. Kinda neat to learn about it.
