12 Monkeys Lacks Gilliam-esque Humor But Still Intrigues!

12 Monkeys - Season 1

I love Terry Gilliam’s movies but, somehow, I’d never seen 12 Monkeys until about eight weeks ago. Once I did, I had a bad feeling about Syfy’s adaptation (Fridays, 9/8C) – a feeling that wasn’t totally dispersed by the first two episodes on the screener that the network sent, but enough so that I’m looking forward to the next five episodes on a second screener set that arrived a couple days ago.

Sneak Peek: NBC’s Prime Suspect – They Might Just Pull This Off!

Anyone who has seen Lynda LaPlante’s Prime Suspect might wonder how NBC, an American broadcast network, could possibly pull off an adaptation where there could be no nudity, no cussing and considerably less all-around nastiness. To them , I need only saw two things: Homicide: Life on the Streets, and Peter Berg [Friday Night Lights – the movie and the TV series].

The Prime Suspect [NBC, Thursdays, 10/9C] trailer and other videos from nbc.com show a willingness to embrace the tone and intelligence of the original and Maria Bello definitely fits the role of Jane Timoney. Check out five more videos after the jump.
