      This show was mercifully ended after 2 seasons. I just binge watched it - and had to watch a few episodes more than once to attempt to figure out what it may or may not have meant. Finally, I realized there is no meaning. One thing I can say is that I wanted to watch every single episode and for what it's worth I was able to escape into whatever crazed situations were going on. Though sometimes escape meant just watching the images move around on the screen. The first season was almost alright. Almost. Then it went in every direction possible except for linear and forward. It is pure fiction. It is enjoyable pure fiction and once I stopped trying to make sense out of it I enjoyed it much more. It was definitely a show that needed to just quit trying and simply end. There was no where else to go except forever. And ever. It is definitely a great show to watch - simply because it is done with and what you see is what it is. Lots of potential questions are left - but honestly I didn't care if they were or weren't answered.moreless

      "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...

      4.0
      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)

      2.0
      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
