12 MONKEYS, now in its second season Monday nights on Syfy Channel, is based loosely on the 1995 film. In both, a man named James Cole (played by Aaron Stanford in the series, Bruce Willis in the movie) travels from the near future to the past. The difference is that in the 12 MONKEYS TV version, Cole is here to prevent rather than merely observe a viral outbreak that devastates the human species. Cole finds an ally in 2015, Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). However, as they travel to past, future and present, Cole and Railly find themselves susceptible to […]Read On »

In Syfy’s 12 MONKEYS, Fridays at 9 PM, a plague wipes out humanity in 2015. Almost three decades later, unreliable time travel has been invented, and a small group of scientists send James Cole (Aaron Stanford) into the past to try to prevent the outbreak from happening. Cole teams up in the present with Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). This, at least initially, is of great alarm to Railly’s ex-fiancé Aaron Marker, played by Noah Bean. Bean previously worked with 12 MONKEYS co-creators Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas (the TV version is based in part on an original work by […]Read On »
