12 Monkeys: 'Keys" (Season 1, Episode 7)

This show seemed to find its dramatic stride tonight. Alternatingly cute, colorful, technically interesting and touching--with minimal grunge and murkiness--this episode is the best of the series so far. It's enough to make me overlook SyFy's lame gimmick of an app that will change lighting to match the mood of the show. They need to fire whoever come up with that.


12 Monkeys: "The Red Forest" (Season 1, Episode 6)

"You are walking through a red forest, and the grass is tall. It's just rained. Most of the blood has washed away." That's a nice little bit of poetic monotone. Too bad they don't do much with it.    

This is the week where budget issues finally hit home. Pretty much every dangerous conspiracy conducts its business in an abandoned warehouse with no security system and maybe a couple guards. You can walk right in and take whatever you like. That gives the whole thing a sad sack feel the overall concept doesn't really deserve.
