Critics Consensus

The nonsensical time travel in 12 Monkeys makes it less watchable than its original source material, but the high quality execution and cool characters are top-notch.

    I can't believe how perfect this show is. It really surprised me. A must watch.

    This is the best SciFi show ever. All 4 seasons seem very well conceived and are sophisticated. It all adds up, wich is not easy with a time travel series. A real story with real characters, 3-D and well written, perfect cast, even the "bad guys" are likable and one can relate. Aaron Stanford is just perfect in his role as Cole, as well as Barbara Sukowa and wonderfully crazy Emily Hampshire. Everybody is perfectly cast and plays their part superbly. It´s the most complete series I´ve ever seen. It beginns in the end and ends at the beginning - the shows motto and so true! Even the ending is served with love and gives the show credit. It is not hastily brought upon and doesn´t leave you "anticlimaxed" as so many other shows do. If I could, I would give it 10 stars.

    I liked the movie, but the series is bad.
  • May 24, 2021
    This is the most underrated show ever. You may find first season little boring but it is just the trailer of the other 3 seasons. Everything you see in first season has a secret which is explained very beautifully in other 3 seasons. You will be very amazed to see the unexpected connection between first and fourth season. Highly recommended to anyone who loves sci-fi, mystery, adventure, fantasy based series.

    This show is just getting better and better

    This season was a great start to an interesting story. The characters are both compelling and well written. The storyline seems to be well thought out for a time travel show.
