12 Monkey‘s is the hit Syfy drama about a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who comes back to the present on a mission to save mankind from a deadly plague that will eventually decimate 93.6% of the human race. Pretty heady stuff.
Considered one of the darlings of the 2014-15 TV season, the success of the show lies in its ability to blend a number of genres into a single series. The viewer gets served up almost in equal measure an old-school thriller, a love story, and a time traveling adventure. The other part of its success lies in the fact that the show’s co-creator Terry Matalas knows what he’s doing – his other sci-fi bonafides include Nikita, Terra Nova, and Star Trek: Enterprise.
Now that Season 1 is available on Hulu, we wanted to get to know Terry a little better, and in our book there’s no better way to do that then through someone’s TV recommendations. So we asked him, in the theme of 12 Monkeys, for his top 12 must-watch shows on Hulu to see what he’s in to.
That and we liked the alliteration.
