12 Monkeys

A continuation of the similarly named film (Bruce Willis being grizzled), this series covers the "adventures" of Cole, a time traveller trying to prevent the pandemic that killed pretty much everybody.

It's very reminiscent of Seven Days, which luckily I enjoyed. The aspects of post-apocalypse add a certain something, but I'd like to see a bit more of that beyond it just being a launching pad for the time travel.

The plot has real grip to it though, and the characters are strong. The time travel is also well done, with the interesting implications of re-writing history.

Score 4
