  • 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.
  • what the hell happened to helix?

    Apr 17, 2015

    Holy crap, what have they done to this how. Watching season 2 EP2 (yep, it took me almost a month to find the mood to continue helix) and it sucked more than EP1. Now the writers are trying to make the show like CSI? Even when shows start to disappointment i rarely give up because i just need to know how it all ends but HELIX now sucks so bad i cant continue. I gotta downgrade to 2

    if you didnt take the science too seriously season one was pretty good (rating a 6-7 for me), not great but good and entertaining enough to keep me watching when i ran out of episodes of the great shows on TV. However watching just the first EP of season two and it would seem that Helix has already jumped the shark. if EP 2 writing is as bad as this i'm dumping this show. With that new dipshit texas doctor character the acting is just appalling! I'm rating helix a 4-4.5 at best now. blah!moreless
  • Over the first two seasons, riveting and aggravating

    After the first three episodes, I was a big fan of this one. It was stylishly filmed, intriguing, and contained some genuinely creepy/scary moments, making it the closest thing to Fringe I've seen in some time.

    Unfortunately, the series as a whole was never as good as that beginning. There were always problematic choices, such as characters who failed to offer pertinent information for no good reason, or who did dumb things, or who made weirdly uncharacteristic choices. While Season 1 was better than Season 2, in both the season went off the rails towards the end, with endings that were very unsatisfying. Season 1 I would rate a 7.5 overall, season 2 probably deserves a 6.5, so let's give it a 7.moreless
  • If King, Crichton and Cook had a bastard child... And after a promising start you discover that child is Justin Bieber

    First season: Imagine if you've got Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Robin Cook and asked them to create a TV series. As examples, you would give them Burning Zone, Fringe and Cameron's The Thing. If you are really lucky, you might end up with something like Helix.

    Second season: No idea when it started going wrong. As I watch S02E04, I have to wonder what happened to the Helix we used to know. Really close to giving up on the series. When the second season reached its end, all I could ask was "why?". Why bother? The storyline was convoluted, the plot was weak and the characters were a mess. Ok, there were one of two good points in the finale, maybe 5 minutes total, but that was it.

    The main feeling I've got was disappointed. A real shame. The series had so much potential, but the writers just couldn't live up to it.moreless

    Syfy Cancels Helix and All Its WTF-ery

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

    Helix went out as it came in: making very little sense and not giving a damn.
