  • 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
  • Helix season 3

    10
    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.

    2.5
    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.

    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

    7.0
    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

    Syfy's Best and Worst Shows Since 2009

    It's been six years since SciFi became Syfy, and it has given us some great shows and some total duds.

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