I like how so far they've kept it as one unchangeable timeline and managed to keep it so tidy, with everything so far fitting in together. It's just nice to watch a show that's so well planned as this, as opposed to say BSG, where they just ended up making shit up as they went along.
I dunno. It's a lot more interesting for me to believe that things can be changed. So I'll keep doing that until it's proven otherwise.
And anyway we don't really know that much about what's happening. We know what's going to happen, but we don't really know how it happened or why and it's just as interesting finding that out (if not more so) as realising a completely new chain of events is happening.
Besides most other shows with time travel always do the changing past thing and it's just feels boring and lazy now. We need more single timeline stories like 12 Monkeys.
