    I just finished watching the third show of Helix, the new science fiction show brought to us by SyFy. I went in to rate it at another site and was surprised at how low the numbers were and bad the reviews were. No doubt the first show, setting up characters and story was a bit tedious and APPEARED to be “the same old thing.” But I don’t work that way. I never review a show based on the pilot. So, I did what was suggested in the commercial and went to On Demand and watched the first three in order. All I can say is WOW!!! By the end of the third episode, my heart was thumping and my skin was crawling. What those reviewers thought they knew wasn’t even close to the truth. Do yourself a favor. If you want a scare-a-minute pure sci fi show ala (the original) Andromeda Strain, or (again original) John Carpenter’s The Thing, check out Helix. By the end of the third episode, it was a completely different show than the seemingly simple Pilot. HELIX is a show to watch! But you won’t know that unless you give it a chance and watch at least three episodes!

    Hate on Sy-Fy all you like. A few years ago I would have agreed with you. Before Being Human, Alphas (sadly cxl’ed), Lost Girl, and Defiance, I would’ve said SyFy just wasn’t capable of putting out good TV, but we’re now in the period AFTER I’ve seen 4 good new shows (LOVE to be able to both watch AND game in the Defiance World). I’m not a fan of, like, Warehouse13 or whatever it’s called, or a few other of their shows, but that’s the way it is for me with every network, every TV station/network or whatever you want to call it–I generally like only a very small percentage of the shows offered by that station. If SyFy maintains the same standards with Helix they have when it comes to the production of the shows I’ve mentioned above, the concept has a chance of making a nice replacement for some of the stupid cxltns.

    I actually thought the previews looked interesting, something like a “Supernova or a ****” but on Earth, maybe a continuation of that movie…

    The **** above is because I forgot the name of the movie just as I was about to type it in. It was a spaceship in space that picked up a stranded person, there was a couple on the ship and when they picked up the stranger, he got superpowers from somewhere and was banging the wife. The hubby and wife were famous people, the name of the superpowered guy in the movie I want to say is Billy…

    When they need to use qualifiers like “intense thriller” and “terrifying life-and-death struggle” you know it is going to be a dud
