A lot of people had reservations about SyFy's 12 Monkey's television series when it was first announced, and now you've got the opportunity to see if those reservations were justified.
Syfy have just unloaded the first nine minutes of the first episode online. From an early impression it's certainly nowhere near the experience provided by visionary director Terry Gilliam, but did any of us actually expect that? However, despite this, it doesn't look like a complete failure either. Check it out below and let me know what you think.
12 Monkeys follows the journey of a time traveler, Cole, from the post-apocalyptic future. Using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, Cole arrives in the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate 93.6% of the human race. Will Cole be able to save the fate of mankind or is mankind bound by fate? Taking place in the ravaged future of 2043 and the present day (2015), 12 Monkeys explores themes of destiny, fate, love and the possibility of second chances.
The series is due to premiere tonight, January 16, at 9pm.
