Hiroja and The Doctor are back for the series finale of 12 Monkeys. This season picks up where the last one left off with our team fighting for their survival as Olivia, revealing herself as the true witness, attempts to eliminate them completely. Using the technology that apparently was available in the facility the entire time, they splinter a portion of the facility to a new location. Originally they think they've only moved in space, but it turns out they've created a T.A.R.D.I.S. and have also gone back in time to the very beginning of season 1.
Yes, it's just as ridiculous as it sounds. This show is leaning in to the whole idea of "to hell with our own rules and mythology, let's just throw something at the wall and see if it sticks." The first six episodes as reviewed here have some great moments. After all, Cassie's face when Jennifer tells her and Cole to do "butt stuff only" is priceless. The opening sequence of the first episode is well done, and the actors are wonderful in their roles. In a show though where they keep breaking the rules they've made in the same episode and where there is nothing but a loop of time, it starts to get long and drawn out for no reason. We discuss here what worked for the first half of the last season, what didn't work, and where the show appears to be heading next. We also rant a bit about why SyFy refuses to embrace their heritage and allow their SCIENCE FICTION SHOWS TO BE GREAT!
