12 Monkeys is a sweet ride with plenty of moments to reward continued attention.

Season 4 gets off and running.

Jun 21, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

12 Monkeys takes the good stuff from the movie...and builds upon it, creating a driving narrative that only occasionally confuses -- in the best way possible -- when skipping back and forth in time.

Feb 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 4 is, hands down, the best season of the show and every episode tops the last. There's no way I could have predicted 95% of what's happened this season and yet everything feels organic.

Feb 4, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Beginning" is as perfect an ending as you're ever going to see, as everyone gets a chance to right their wrongs.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the best series on television has just wrapped one of the best finales of the year. As for time, well -- this four-season run has absolutely been time well spent.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

12 Monkeys has a surprising amount of thematic depth for a show that sets a climactic battle in its finale to the strains of "Time of My Life" (you know, from Dirty Dancing).

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

It couldn't have been scheduled more beautifully if we had planned it ourselves.

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Whether in its efforts to break the twisty narrative loop it has created for itself or find the beginning of the end by going all the way back to the beginning of the story, 12 Monkeys season 4 manages to deliver enough surprises...

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Needless to say, the writers can't make a wrong choice here; any direction they choose is bound to be an exciting one.

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

From the word go, the final season of 12 Monkeys pulls no punches. In fact, it raises the bar on "going there" television.

    Put this off for as long as I could but at last I did finish this masterpiece of a show. So much I could say. Incredibly well written, so satisfying to see everything come together so perfectly. Love all the characters (but Jennifer is the best). Honestly, if you like scifi/time travelling/good writing/incredible relationships watch this show. It's so well thought out from start to finish. Also freakin' funny. What a fantastic final episode AND season. honestly a joy through and through.

    Not sure how 12 Monkeys keeps getting better each season.
  • Jul 20, 2020
    One of THE greatest seasons of television ever. Period.
  • Jul 20, 2020
    I don't know if I can give a review of the final season without cussing because it's SO F**KING GOOD. The best payoff from any show I've ever seen. Better than M*A*S*H, and even better than Breaking Bad. For a time travel show to be able to answer and wrap up every thread is beyond incredible. And to have it also be the most emotional and satisfying conclusion on top of that is nothing short or genius. The finale could've (should've) been a movie. The actors all deserve Emmys, as does this show. The fact that more didn't tune in is a travesty. I have not heard one person who has watched it and not been blown away. And even more amazing is that the show is just as good (maybe even better??) on repeat viewings.

    It's not easy to tell a great story, but it's even harder to end a great story, uh, greatly. This is something that 12 Monkeys viewers don't have to worry about. For a show that significantly raises the stakes each season, this last outing with Team Splinter gives us an epic showdown between the forces of good and evil. Every lingering mystery or question is not only answered, but those answers are crucial to the advancement of the larger story. Even in a story where death can, kind of, be undone through time travel, there are significant losses and heartbreaking endings. However, the series finale is a feature-worthy showdown that brings everything full circle (like a snake eating its own tail, but finding itself delicious). 12 Monkeys is not just one of the best time-travel or sci-fi shows ever produced, but it belongs in the conversation for best television series ever produced. This is a series you can rewatch 10 times before you stop spotting new and interesting things in the story.

    Extremely satisfying concluding season with episodes playing like mini-features. Cleverly ties up loose ends, makes great use of all the characters we've grown to love, and doesn't waste its time travel premise for a second.
  • Dec 10, 2019
    Loved this entire series. Finally, a show that has more than a moment to moment plot. It really completes a full circle that enables the ending to actually explain the beginning. Great job.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    Strong run from pilot to finale. Easily within Top 5 of sci-fi series.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    Yes it didn't disappoint. Wonderful twists
  • Aug 19, 2019
    Almost perfect....great ending, questions answers, kept the complex timeline in check without clouding it for the end, and the characters continued to be interesting.
