TM46 – S4E1 – The End

TM46 – S4E1 – The End

We’re back with more episode analysis for 12 Monkeys, this time with the season premiere, “The End,” which finds us right where we left off in season three. We talk about all of the conflicting emotions with the different members of the team and speculate on where things might be headed once they escape Titan. This discussion contains spoilers for episode 401 but is spoiler-free for episodes 402 and 403.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “The End”! This week we talk about Cassie’s hopelessness, Jones’ daring plan, Deacon’s wonderful delay tactics, Cole’s stubborn adherence to the mission, and the various deaths that spring up right from the start. Read more…

TM45 – Season 4 Night 1 with Terry Matalas

TM45 – Season 4 Night 1 with Terry Matalas

The first chapter of 12 Monkeys season 4 has finally arrived, and fans all over the U.S. were glued to their seats as night 1 unfolded, including 401 “The End,” 402 “Ouroboros,” and 403 “45 RPM,” and the three episodes together really felt like the first chapter of the final tale. The story of the Witness took center stage as the team struggled to find a unified purpose.

Terry Matalas joins Mike for this first night of discussion, and the 12 Monkeys showrunner has plenty to share about this opening run of episodes. We speculate on the nature of the Seers, Jones’ new approach to the mission, Deacon’s not-so-surprising duplicity, Cassie’s one last attempt to take out the Witness, and how revisiting the first splinter changes how we see the overall series.

TM44 – 12 Monkeys Season 4 Preview (featuring Terry Matalas)

With the final season of 12 Monkeys upon us, it’s important to reflect on the story so far, as complicated as it is, to have certain ideas fresh in our minds. Will certain fan theories prove true, or will they at least be addressed? Where did we leave off with the different characters? What are we guessing will happen in the final run of 12 Monkeys, now less than two weeks away?

Join us for 12 Monkeys news (especially regarding the podcast schedule and some cool giveaways we have for you), commentary and analysis for the series so far, including a look at the cycles that have appeared in the different seasons, and our special visit with Terry Matalas to share his thoughts leading into the premiere!

TM43 – Season 3 Listener Feedback Extravaganza

12 Monkeys season 3 is over, but the theories and predictions still abound! Join us as we read listener mail, play audio feedback, and respond to your thoughts and impressions of the season. We’ve got opinions about Olivia and how she’ll become what she needs to become, about who Cole’s mother may or may not be, about whether or not the “linear binge” was a good idea, and much, much more!

TM42 – Season 3 Debrief with Terry Matalas

TM42 – Season 3 Debrief with Terry Matalas

12 Monkeys showrunner Terry Matalas hopped back on the phone to talk about season 3 and answer some of our burning questions. He was out in the forest filming a scene for season 4 and teased some of the more significant aspects of season 3 that he assured us would get their payoff.

We hope you enjoyed our commentary for the 12 Monkeys season 3 linear binge, as well as our special set visit interview clips! We want to express our gratitude to Terry and the cast of 12 Monkeys for participating in our podcast and to Den of Geek for allowing us to piggyback on their coverage. Read more…

TM41 – S3E10 – Witness

TM41 – S3E10 – Witness

It’s no surprise that the season 3 finale of 12 Monkeys is titled Witness, but the identity of the Witness certainly was! Just when we thought we had it figured out! The battle seemed all but impossible, and parts of it actually were! But the ending was satisfying – not exactly a cliffhanger but a resolution with huge revelations for season 4.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for EP NAME, and our special set visit interview clip! This week we talk about Jennifer’s important mission and rising significance, Cole’s and Cassie’s refusal to give up, Jones’ willingness to sacrifice for her greater good, Mallick’s complicity with Olivia’s rebel faction, and the sealed fate of Olivia herself, now revealed to be her own greatest enemy, the Witness. Read more…

TM40 – S3E9 – Thief

TM40 – S3E9 – Thief

Athan Cole certainly does not seem to be amenable to the future laid out before him, and in the 12 Monkeys episode, Thief, we see his avoidance strategy. Told brilliantly through Cole’s and Cassie’s reading of his journals, a love story unfolds that explains it all, including why someone might want to pursue the eternal now promised by the Red Forest.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for Thief, and our special set visit interview clip! This week we talk about the incredibly insightful Cassie and Cole flashbacks, the vision of the three Jennifers and where it leads Ms. Goines, the inevitable fate of Eliza (the mysterious “Beloved E”), and the desperation of Jones in her desire to know more, even to the point of trusting Olivia. Read more…

TM39 – S3E8 – Masks

TM39 – S3E8 – Masks

The team is splintered in an entirely different way in the episode of 12 Monkeys entitled Masks. Is the fissure between Team Jones and Team Witness too wide to ever bridge again? Will Cole and Cassie finally rekindle the life they lost in the 1950’s here in 1899? Is their mission to save their son from his fate doomed to fail, or is it the only hope for success?

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for EP NAME, and our special set visit interview clip! This week we talk about Cassie learning to pick pockets and Cole learning to dance, the amazing masquerade costumes and masks in black and red, the wonderful Rupert Graves as the elder Sebastian, and the questionable wisdom of bringing Olivia into the grand plan. Read more…

TM38 – S3E7 – Nurture

TM38 – S3E7 – Nurture

The 12 Monkeys writers fit a LOT of story into this episode entitled Nurture both in the form of Cassie’s solo visit to the past and the mission to attack the Guardians’ stronghold. With a last minute change of heart, it appears the Cassie and Cole are on their own now! How will the team survive this divide among their numbers?

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for EP NAME, and our special set visit interview clip! This week we talk about Kathryn Railly’s amazing insights into her grandson, Sebastian’s protection of the boy in his charge, Deacon’s suspicions about secrets being held, Jones’ investigation of what happened between Cole and Ramse, and the future status of Jennifer in the long game. Read more…

TM37 – S3E6 – Nature

TM37 – S3E6 – Nature

Going beyond fate versus free will is the idea of nature versus nurture in the rearing of a child in the 12 Monkeys episode entitled Nature. In this Christmas episode of sorts, we see the early Army of the 12 Monkeys led by Pallid Man’s father (Christopher Lloyd) and the Messenger known as Mantis (Scottie Thompson), and Cole and Cassie see what their son is capable of.

Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for Nature, and our special set visit interview clip! This week we talk about the return of Agent Gale, the strange ritual of selecting the twelfth, the mystery of Project Charon, the absence of Deacon on the Word of the Witness, and much more.
