    I really like Helix. Like others have said in this post – it’s well acted even though some of the episodes are somewhat slow. The last 2 weeks in particular have provided a lot of answers and set things up. There are likeable characters and characters you like to hate on this show – which keeps the tension really alive. I do hope that Syfy renews this one – I feel like lately there are a lot of crummy things shown on the channel and this is something for me to look forward to.

    What make a show great is characters that are likable. There is no one in the show that I am rooting for. I have stop watching.

    At first I assumed I won’t like it, because I don’t typically like this form of Sci-Fi, but this one is VERY well done, and I love it, even though I looked hard for things not to like about it, but I wasn’t successful. Please Syfy don’t cancel this masterpiece.

    Wow, so many studio plants and/or writers of the show showing their love! If only this much enthusiasm went into the scripts, Helix might be watchable. As is, each and every episode feels the same. Slow, drawn out, and very repetitive. I wanted to like it, but after 6 episodes of same-ol’-same-ol’ lather-rinse-repeat writing I must move on. RIP Helix.

    Honestly Helix is the main thing me and my boyfriend look forward to every friday. it actually makes me go to school every day because it gives me something to look forward to and makes the whole week worth it. I heard that Helix will only air thirteen episodes and i was outraged. Please help fight to keep Helix on the air for atleast three seasons. I’m very worried stupid people won’t undestand the show so it will get cancelled. please don’t let this happen.. i will legitimately cry i swear

    Helix is my favorite show on SyFy. The only one I watch and the only one I feel that is well written and very well cast. I love it so much! All my Friday statuses are on Helix! I wouldn’t know what to watch if it went off air! I was so thrilled when I saw the commercial for the premiere and I look forward to it every Friday! I don’t know what I would do without Helix on Fridays! Thank you so much for making this show possible and please don’t let anything happen to it! Or everybody’s Fridays will have no meaning, at least mine won’t! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 I LOVE YOU HELIX!!!!!!!

    Helix is the first really well done sci fi show since SyFy took over the REAL Sci Fi! It is exciting. It follows a real story. Reminds me a bit (but not as good, OK?) of the Walking Dead. It seems to have direction, it has good guys and bad guys, it moves quickly and there are a lot of questions that need answers to. I really like Helix – better than Defiance or Continuum. This show needs to continue (as long as it continues to develop a story and not get stuck). Definitely hope it gets renewed!

    Helix is awesome. I am still waiting to watch Fridays ep. cause I was working I recorded it. I record it every week. I am so happy to see 7 of 9 killed off…… I am hoping that feb 28th ep is just as good as the last one keep it up

    Sometimes its just down to simple impressions for me.
    I started to watch helix this week and watched 8 episodoes in 2 evenings; nothing really new about it but its well acted, well realized and enjoyable.
    I had lot of fun watching it and got hooked pretty well so I do hope it gets renewed because IMHO its worth it.
    Peace out.
