TM60 – Alisen Down Interview

TM60 – Alisen Down Interview

One last hurrah for 12 Monkeys Uncaged! Our final podcast shares Mike’s interview with Alisen Down, who of course plays Olivia on 12 Monkeys, which was conducted just before the season 4 finale aired on Syfy. Alisen shared the challenges of finding the voice of the Witness and how it paralleled Olivia’s journey of self-discovery. Read more…

TM59 – 12 Monkeys – Final Listener Feedback Extravaganza

TM59 – 12 Monkeys – Final Listener Feedback Extravaganza

We turn it over to the listeners who get their final say about 12 Monkeys as a series and how it all ended up in the perfect finale. We heard from so many people who have joined us on this journey these past four years, and you’ll get to hear some insights Cory and I could never have come up with on our own. This Listener Feedback Extravaganza is a real treat!

Thank you to our Listener Feedback Extravaganza contributors (one of whom won our final set item giveaway!) including Maria, Alexander, William, John from Oregon, John from Chicago, Angela, Caryle, Mary, Sofie, Kate, Geoff, Taltos, and Carmelita. You all truly made this an epic ending to our podcast. Read more…

TM58 – S4E10 – The Beginning

TM58 – S4E10 – The Beginning

It’s Mike and Cory’s last 12 Monkeys episode discussion ever for the series finale, “The Beginning”! What a great way to go out with a wonderful, thoughtful discussion filled with appreciation, speculation, and awe at how perfect everything was, topped off with some insightful, well-phrased feedback from the listeners. Like the show, the podcast got its perfect ending!

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “The Beginning”! This week we talk about Deacon’s strange task in the past that we never got to see, Cole’s wonderfully understated persuasion of Cassie, the endlessly entertaining reunion of Cole and Ramse, the surprises of other return cameos for other characters, and, of course, the stellar ending with two different epilogues. Just the ultimate series finale of all time! Read more…

TM57 – S4E9 – One Minute More

TM57 – S4E9 – One Minute More

We marvel over the tightly-written 12 Monkeys penultimate episode, “One Minute More,” in which secrets are revealed that reach all the way back to season 1, but we also get plenty of shocking revelations from only the final season, such as who the real demon is! With such a wonderful set up, how could the series finale be anything other than epic?

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “One Minute More”! This week we talk about emotions and decisions portrayed without a single moment of dialogue, the masterful weaving of flashback and current narrative, the heart-breaking sacrifices that both Hannah and Cassie must make, and the beautiful fireside moment that gives this episode its name. Read more…

TM56 – S4E8 – Demons

TM56 – S4E8 – Demons

“Demons” has an epic feel that takes us as close to the beginning and end of things as we’ve ever been in 12 Monkeys! The medieval setting really gives the story the depth it needed to take the team up the stairs to ring the bell, but what could the loss of the weapon mean? And where would the makeshift splinter machine have taken Cole?

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Demons”! This week we talk about Jennifer’s important realizations, the Seers’ cryptic statements, Andrus’ amazing characterization, Olivia’s grim determination, Cole’s wonderful vest rescue, and – of course – Deacon’s ultimate sacrifice. Read more…

TM55 – S4E7 – Daughters

TM55 – S4E7 – Daughters

Our 12 Monkeys discussion gets a bit literary as we discuss the wonderful duality of “Daughters” as it draws parallels between Hannah and Emma. Interestingly, although Terry Matalas calls the next series of episodes a “descent into darkness,” the revelations we get in this one are quite enlightening. Deceiving the Witness to allow the team to reach the distant past is a bold move indeed!

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Daughters”! This week we talk about Jones taunting Olivia, Olivia’s ignorance of how to be a mother, Emma’s resulting disillusionment, Cole’s increasing impatience, Deacon’s cryptic nosebleed, Old Jennifer’s surprising return, Adler’s swift reprimand of Cole, and much more! Read more…

TM54 – S4E6 – Die Glocke

TM54 – S4E6 – Die Glocke

It’s time for discussion of one of the zaniest episodes of 12 Monkeys ever: “Die Glocke”! Whether you thought Jennifer’s singing and gleeful assassination of Hitler were over the top or not, this episode was undeniably fun. And it notably marks the end of Night 2 as well as the series of romps and adventures the team has been going on.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Die Glocke”! This week we talk about Deacon’s return to the fold, Cole’s determined role assignments, Jones’ strange catatonic episode, Cassie’s grindhouse moment, Jennifer’s amazing improvisation, and the wonderful scene of everyone together at the end of the episode. Read more…

TM53 – S4E5 – After

TM53 – S4E5 – After

The question of what comes after victory or loss in 12 Monkeys makes us very philosophical in our discussion of “After” this week. The admirably complex ins and outs of doing a causality loop episode put this one in the top five 12 Monkeys stories of all time. Plus it doesn’t hurt to have the return of both Christopher Lloyd and Jay Karnes as Zalman Shaw and Agent Gale.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “After”! This week we talk about Jennifer’s “oops loop,” Cassie’s growing doubts about a future for her and Cole, Cole’s predictably reckless decisions, Deacon’s surprising conversation with Jennifer, Jones’ secret mission for Hannah, and Gale’s amazing save of the mission by giving them their next destination. Read more…

TM52 – S4E4 – Legacy

TM52 – S4E4 – Legacy

Our discussion enters the section of 12 Monkeys season 4 in which the adventures of Team Splinter begin in “Legacy.” A trip to 1852 gives us the Wild West theme we never knew we wanted until now and blends it with the unlikely circumstance of the building of Titan and the return of Elliot Jones. This discussion contains spoilers up through episode 404 but is spoiler-free for future episodes that have already aired.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Legacy”! This week we talk about Jennifer’s secret of no longer hearing voices, Cole’s secret of the tale originating with his mother, Jones’ secret of having a fatal dose of radiation, Elliot’s journey of reconciliation especially with Hannah, and the interesting stranger we meet in the flashbacks to the early days of the invention of time travel. Read more…

TM51 – Season 4 Night 4 with Terry Matalas

TM51 – Season 4 Night 4 with Terry Matalas

The final fireside chat for 12 Monkeys season 4 takes us through the ups and downs of one of the most perfect episodes of television ever! Terry Matalas has quite a few insights to share for many of the lingering questions fans may still have, and we guarantee you’ll be more enlightened after listening to this podcast than you were before you hit play.

Along with Terry Matalas, we explore the possible life paths that brought the various characters to where they are in the fixed timeline epilogue, and we spend some time appreciating many of the closed loops, some of which go all the way back to season 1, including Cassie’s recording, Ramse’s son, and the return of Max. Join us as we take one last look back at the full breadth of 12 Monkeys in awe of how far we’ve come. Read more…
