12 Monkeys “Arms of Mine” 

Full disclosure: I’m 44, so my point of reference for Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine” is Dirty Dancing. When that music kicked in at the beginning of the 12 Monkeys first season finale, with Cassie and Cole lying face to face on her bed as Cole VO’d “Are you…

12 Monkeys “Paradox” 

[Warning: Spoilers for “Paradox.”] I could just take the easy way out and say I LOVE THIS EPISODE AND YOU SHOULD, TOO. But that would be a cheat. So let me get really wordy and tell you why “Paradox” is my favorite episode of the first season.

12 Monkeys Preview: “Divine Move” 

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] Depending on how you take your sci-fi and your time travel, you’ve heard various theories about the ripple effect, or that nudging things just so can have a significant impact on the timeline. Well, this is the episode where Ramse decides to give it a swift…

12 Monkeys Preview: “Tomorrow” 

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] BOO YAH! First up, 12 Monkeys was just renewed for a second season, set to air in 2016. This is a VERY good thing. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the entire season, and you may well need to be medicated by the end of it, because holy…

12 Monkeys “The Keys” 

[Warning: Spoilers for tonight’s episode.] I’d like to say that I don’t think showrunners actively try to stir up their audiences, but I don’t believe that would be a true statement. “The Keys” was a mind-numbing (in a good way) hour that took the whole dial-back/jump-forward “before” and “after” plotting mechanism and…

12 Monkeys Preview: “Cassandra Complex” 

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] This week on 12 Monkeys, we dive a little into Cassandra’s backstory. In our press call a few weeks back, I asked about Cassandra’s decision to tell the truth about meeting Cole, which, while essentially forfeiting her career, hadn’t also derailed her from still being at…
