    6.5
    An interesting start to the series. A good premise, and they have me intrigued, but I think the acting is a little below average as is the writing.
  • B Movie Awesomeness!

    9.0
    So far pretty awesome B movie style TV series. Had less than high hopes for Helix, but plesantly surprised by its clautrophobic horror tinged scifi story line. Think: Alien mixed with The Thing (1980's), Outbreak and Species. Riverting and @ times flesh crawling stuff. Recommended if youre a fan of any of the aforementioned, and even more so if like me you love them all! Definately tuning in for more!!!!

    I like the random happy music at the end.

    Truvia commercials didn't work, suck it truvia.

    7 for having commercials regardless of how much they might be needed to keep the site funded.
