Same main character. Same basic idea as the movie from what I understand. Most of the population has been wiped out and Cole is going back and forth in time to try and stop it, but isn't really being giving the truth from the people sending him back in time. On Syfy on Friday.

From the promos I've seen, it looks like they're covering just about the same content.

You had me intrigued up until "SyFy"... ;)

There's a reason my expectations are low

I believe you did miss Helix

12 Monkeys was "on demand". In fact for 24 hours episode 2 was on demand. I'm in for awhile

I wouldn't say I've been missing it.

So...Agent Carter is in the books now. I ended up liking this more than I thought I would, even though it sort of fizzled at the end with the whole Kingsmen ripoff. Not sure I got the point of letting Dottie live though, or pairing up the Doc with Zola. Are they planning to make more of these someday?

And hats off to Parks & Recreation for a very enjoyable 7 season run...what a great finale. This show was never particularly great, but it had many memorable moments and ultimately felt like time well spent to me when I watched. (Never missed an episode)

That's how it feels to me- that they're building up to Season 2.  The Doc and Zola, Sousa letting his feelings known for Peggy, and Peggy spilling Steve's blood into the East River (in a sense, letting him go so that she move on and be with Sousa).

As for Dottie living, perhaps there's more to her (Winter Soldier) than we know?  I thought we'd also get some info on the Winter Soldier project but maybe I'll have to wait until Season 2.  Also, what's Dottie's purpose now? Rescue the Doc and Zola.

I enjoyed it.  Good fun.
