    12 Monkeys Renewed (and Cancelled)

    Short version: Season 3 (ten episodes) is being burned off over three nights in May. And they've renewed it for a final Season 4 (also ten episodes).

    Very strange strategy, but I'm glad to be getting two more seasons with a true wrap-up!

    Seems like this show has been on longer than two seasons.

    That makes no sense.

    Probably split a 20 episode production run into two seasons.

    No, Season 3 has already been shot, before the renewal for Season 4.

    I think this show requires you to pay attention more than most. It's easy for a low-attention span millenial to lose interest and drop out over the course of a spring season so I think they're trying this instead.

    That sure is discriminatory. Most millennials I know (that watch TV, [cable is expensive] love shows like 12 monkeys.

    They love it on Netflix (or similar) where they can binge and not have to try and remember things from a week (or, gosh, several) ago.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that for the 2nd season, I had recorded almost all of the episodes and kept putting off watching it since it was so much "work" to watch.. But then once I started watching, I went through them relatively quickly. (Not quite official "binge" watching, since I don't think I watched more than 1 at a time.. I do tend to switch from one show to another, and concentrate on it a bit more.)

    Looks like they're running them more-or-less commercial-free...the first four episodes air on 5/20 in 45-minute blocks.

    More Rovi shenanigans. Season 3 episode titles look right, but the episodes are numbered 2-11 rather than 1-10 in the TiVo Guide.

    My guide shows
    Fri 5/19, 6pm MDT, Mother S3/E1. Is that not correct? Followed by Guardians, Enemy, and Brothers, S3E2-4, respectively. All in 45 minute time slots. The next six episodes are in one hour slots.
    Sat 5/20, 6pm MDT, Causality, Nature, Nurture, S3E5-7.
    Sun 5/21, 6pm MDT, Masks, Thief, Witness, S3E8-10.
    They're all marked as new and my old 1P is picking them all up.

    My info is from my Roamio Plus. I wonder why your info is different? Different TiVo? I've seen this before, probably in this forum, where different people's guide data is different. Never made sense to me.

    Anyway, looking forward to binging season 3 on Monday night.

    I have a Roamio Basic (with an upgraded drive, but that shouldn't matter).

    Speaking of Rovi (and Guide data) ... I'm working my way through the new season (liking it so far) and the description for Episode 6 "Nature" is: "The origin of the Army of the 12 Monkeys is revealed. But what does Christopher Lloyd have to do with it?"

    Who is writing these episode descriptions? :eek:

    I stumbled on the Syfy marathon of season 3 last week, Friday to be exact, and I really liked. I decided not to watch anymore of the marathon so I could binge the first two seasons.

    Boy was that a mistake. It seems that there's no free option to binge the first two seasons. Not available with Amazon Prime and not on Netflix. I can pay thru Amazon or even Youtube or subscribe to HULU.... yeah, that's not gonna happen.

    Oh well, guess I'll just wait till there's an option open to me. Shame....
