  • Clever show ... it was NOT

    "Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from " ... That was true for the first few episodes. It was a creepy dense atmosphere, but as the story unfolded about brothers, ex-wife, fathers, kidnapped twin-brother, spouse, pregnancy who all meet at the most isolated spot on earth it became ***ed. Yeah, I like euphemisms, but only where they are due. Just stopw atching after like the 4th episode and you'll like it, there is no closure to either season 1 or season 2 anyhow.moreless
  • Helxis...

    1st of all

    we must be fair here

    Helix season 1 were good a little bit slow yes but it was good

    nice story great acting and some good old CDC thriller...

    2nd The Fall:

    from season one Finale I felt a great disturbance in the Force

    the finale was horrible so many loose ends

    but once season 2 started the show went from good to ok to pure hell!

    so if you were wondering about Helix and thinking to watch it please don't because you won't feel good about it

    and if you did watched it already just like myself well the good news is SyFy cancelled that awful show once and for all and we finally have satisfaction! :)

  • Another flawed dramatic series (note: spoiler alert)

    I think I watched less than 2 episodes before I gave up on the series. Here's why... 1) After Peter escapes from the lab and infects some (all?) of the 6 scientists the security "team" (I only ever saw one or two at the most) only makes a half-ass effort to locate him and the first 3 of 6 scientists that escaped from their lab. So much for the sense of urgency to contain the outbreak. 2) Even after Dr. Jordan is "rescued" by Dr. Alan Farragut after being taken hostage at knife point by one of the 3 confined scientists no action is taken by Security to monitor them going forward. Dr. Walker then puts herself in the exact same situation as Dr. Jordan, resulting in her being assaulted and knocked out by one of the three scientists who then escape from the lab with no one to stop them. At this point, I knew the series would just end up being one stupid decision being made after another. Typical series that smacks of incompetent actions and decision-making by the characters for the sake of more dramatic storytelling and implausible scenarios. LAME...moreless
  • Helix season 3

    Steven Maeda. In season 2 dared to bring us a new way to make his show, some fans like me loved,

    It's just huge! The only thing we can sayyou're brilliant!. Unfortunalely some fans did not get or catch that, simply they wanted to see season 1 in season 2 so,What is the interest of that ?. Please @Syfy give Helix a third and craszy season, it deserves it, because season 3 is the key.

    So sad and wrong to end it like that.

    Her is a petition to renew helix thanks all to sign it and leave a ... help us to #Savehelix, we need all of you.moreless
  • Not worth the time.

    Just watched S01 E01 and E02.

    The thing comes off a really long B movie -full of random unnecessary drama and convenient incompetence that is absolutely required to move the plot along.

    The wacky virus drama has been put out of its misery, which makes us both sad and happy.
