Time travel remains an alluring concept, as do titles with name recognition, even if they’re of the cultish variety. So Syfy has reached 20 years into the historical grab bag for “12 Monkeys,” reprising the Terry Gilliam film that was as intriguing as it was at times incomprehensible. Aaron Stanford slides into the Bruce Willis role as James Cole, a man sent back from 2043 to prevent the outbreak of a 2017 plague that decimated the Earth’s population. That gives him a couple years to accomplish his mission — more time than the series might have to find its creative equilibrium. 12 Monkeys needs to find its voice and figure out the physics of its storytelling first. But it really has potential. Let’s see what the hardcore sci-fi fans think of it first and see if we need to revisit the rest of the season once it’s wrapped.
