What I’m Watching: 12 Monkeys

12 Monkeys: Season 1, Episode 10 “Divine Move” (C)

I really like the music on this show, and so I tend to get very excited during the opening credits each week regardless of whether the content of the episode is actually good or not. I’m all about what this show wants to do, but this episode just did not do it for me at all. Ramsey’s break with everything wasn’t really precipitated by anything, and felt too sudden even though we had warning that he was growing discontent with Jones’ leadership. Seeing Jennifer in the future lost its appeal since she literally looked like a witch leading a group of “daughters” as they wandered through the barren landscape. Ramsey sending himself back through time is an interesting concept, but to think that all that would be needed to successfully splinter after so many failed tests is one injection is hard to believe. The jump that’s been made from Cole and Ramsey being friends to where they are now was far too quick and intense, and Cole declaring that he’ll kill Ramsey if he tries to stop him is also less than convincing since he’d still likely do anything for his friend. Back in the past, Cassandra and Aaron aren’t doing much, and it looks like 1987 is a much more worthwhile time to be in at the moment. Let’s hope that Cole sorts things out there and gets back to the present, 2015, where he needs to be to pick Cassandra back up and set her back on track.
