12 MONKEYS
May 19, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Syfy, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s Season 3 for this Syfy series as well – and though Syfy isn’t dropping it all at once, as Netflix is doing with the aforementioned The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, it is rolling it out in unusual fashion. This year’s 10 new episodes of 12 Monkeys will be televised over three nights, tonight through Sunday, in a weekend mini-marathon premiere event. Technically, that makes it 10 Monkeys, not a dozen – but why quibble? The first few new episodes are shown tonight beginning at 8 p.m. ET, reuniting the protagonists from the various timelines – past, present and future – to which they’ve been scattered.

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20. (Paperback will be available September 5th, here.)

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
