As my TV blew up I watch dvd's and 12 Monkeys the series promised to go beyond the original movie in so many promising ways. There were great plot lines criss crossing each other or falling apart. Never boring and never maudlin in the suburban soap sense. The characters were individuals and not stereo types. For example the women did not really want to have a baby and a house and and and --- in fact they were they leaders of men. Excellent stuff---until the last two episodes. It didn't so much fall down as go into froth and bilge and so far away from everything these imaginative stories and the plot and the raison d'etre of the series itself.
I blame producers. They think they know best. But by making it so awful so predictable so sodden if ruined it all.
