The tag applies to both the 1995 film and the later TV series, and its tag wiki says to use and to differentiate them.

  • The movie and TV series are not actually named "Twelve Monkeys", but "12 Monkeys", although the movie is sometimes marketed as "Twelve Monkeys". The tag should probably be renamed.

  • Should we split the tag into two tags, one for the movie and one for the book?

    The film was released in various markets as "Twelve Monkeys"

  • @Valorum Interesting, I wasn't aware. Pretty sure the series wasn't though.

Use the usual naming strategy.

Simple. We should use our usual naming strategy for the film and call it

For the tv show I propose we leave it as [twelve-monkeys] since [twelve-monkeys-tv] looks silly. We should call the TV show as that is coherent with our tag system for other shows (e.g. ).

Swap "12" for "Twelve" as need be, I don't know what it really it should or would be called.
