12 Monkeys Episode #1: 5 Things We're Still Talking About

Monday, January 19, 2015 - 11:10
  1. Time travel!

    This is how Cole travels back in time (and back to the future).


    In most sci-fi properties, time travel is a simple, painless process that seems as easy as if Jeannie herself blinked you into a era. It's nice to see it treated as a painful, debiltating, not-easy process. Well, not nice per say as Cole looks like he's about to puke after every jump, but the realistic touch is appreciated.
  2. The bullet wound heard around the time spear. Cole gets shot in 2013 and returns to his past - our present - in 2015 with the same wound! Amazing and painful!

  3. The watch! The multipurpose heirloom time piece given to Cassie by her grandfather creates paradoxes and blows shit up right when you need it to. Casio should consider diversifying into explosives.

    Isn't It Ironic?

  4. The plague.

    Cole explains that, by 2017, the plague has killed 7 billion people. And this is what Cole has been sent back in time to stop. But wow, it's not going to be easy.

    To recap, 7 billion people will be DEAD by 2017 if the virus is not destroyed in 2015. Grim city, folks. FYI - get more info on the plague by exploring the 12 Monkeys Wall. 
  5. Jennifer Goines. Crazed hair, wild eyes, sinister smile. Yes, please.
