Thanks to 12 Monkeys, we’ll never think of World War One in the same way again. Here’s more on that and other awesome moments from TV-land this week.
Sean Bean became a man of the cloth (Broken)
Think “Sean Bean” and you’ll imagine a rogue spy, or dashing Napoleonic soldier, sword-wielding warrior, or all-around scary killer man. But a priest? Oh yes. And his new heartbreaking drama Broken is already one of the best shows of the year.

World War One got real weird (12 Monkeys)
Syfy gave us a three-night 12 Monkeys-a-thon, which was funny, frightening and just plain crazy in equal measure. Case in point, this wacked-out WW1 scene which will probably be remembered as THE iconic moment from the entire show.

Zach had a sort of breakdown (Baskets)
If you’re not watching Baskets, you really should. It’s a Curb Your Enthusiasm-type story, with Zach Galifianakis playing a sad clown. He also plays the sad clown’s twin brother, who in the latest episode was having a really… REALLY bad day.
