    as much as i love this show. where would it go with a renewal? the CDC heading to another base with another virus. only this time most of the team are immortal? unless they add something completely different, i cant see how it would work.

    I have a tendency to not get involved in sci-fi series in the first couple of years due to the fact they do not seem to be finish the story to completion . The BBC is the worst in this regard but survivors is a whole other issue . What originally drew my interest was the casting of Hiroyuki (Henry) Sanada 70’s martial arts star who trained under Sonny Chibas JAC school. I was kind of expecting a 28 days later rage virus martial arts experience but ran into a cerebral thriller that was well written, excellently cast and highly entertaining . It would be a shame for television to loose this thinking mans show for some cheesy moronic show that takes all of the intelligence of a two year old to understand.

    This show is completely awesome. I think it should be renewed because it’s one of the best programs on TV. The acting is superb, the drama is very high and intense the characters are perfectly believable. I believe the program should definitely continue it needs to be renewed. For those who do not think it should be renewed it simply because it’s too far above their heads, they are the ones who only like ti°°s showing and other useless things like random explosions that have nothing to do with the show. However I’m afraid that they are going to get their way and the program will be cancelled, Syfy needs to stand up and say look this is good we’re keeping it for a while to see how it goes. But unfortunately I don’t think they have big enough b***s to do this. It is sad that the mental morons control while we watch.

    I’m in love with this show. All little sad they only had 13 episodes in one season but it’s AMAZING

    There is nothing on tv like this show. It’s smart and interesting. Each season is supposed to take place in various locations. Lets hope scy fy gives it a chance for a second show. at least it won’t end like alphas did , the cliffhanger of them ‘dead’ is now a reality because we never had another episode. HELIX though was a very different kind of show and lets hope they give it a chance. renew it!

    I love Helix. Each episode seems to fly by and I can hardly wait until the next episode. I work in the medical field and my dream job would be working with the CDC. I like how this shows gives answers while posing even more questions. I’d love to see how they build upon the immortals and the Ilaria Corporation. Keep it coming.
