TV show description:
This thriller TV series follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control. They travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak and find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.

Doctor Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell) is the head of the Center’s Special Pathogens Branch. Brilliant and intense, he’s seen his share of action battling outbreaks and saving lives around the world. None of that compares to what he finds at the Arctic Biosystems base.

His ex-wife is Doctor Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky), a Senior Scientist at the Centers For Disease Control. An authoritative genius, she co-heads the rapid response team’s mission to the Arctic Biosystems facility. Doctor Peter Farragut (Neil Napier) is a research scientist working in mutagens. He has a complicated relationship with both his brother, Alan, and his brother’s ex-wife.

Sarcastic and generally light-hearted, Doreen Boyle (Catherine Lemieux) is a veterinary pathologist and an experienced member of the rapid response team. She specializes in the diagnosis of diseases through the examination of animal tissue and bodily fluids. Another member of the rapid response team, Sarah Jordan (Jordan Hayes) is highly intelligent and motivated to impress.

Major Sergio Balleseros (Mark Ghanime) is the Army liaison with the rapid response team. As part of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases and a systems engineer, he has more than average knowledge of viral pathogens.

Handsome and charismatic, Doctor Hiroshi Hatake (Hiroyuki Sanada) is the head of the Arctic Biosystems research facility. He appears eager for the assistance of the CDC in containing the situation within his base but his true motivations aren’t completely clear.

Daniel Aerov (Meegwun Fairbrother) is the head of security at Arctic Biosystems. Having worked with and for Hatake for most of his life, he’s fiercely loyal and dedicated to helping the head of the facility.

I love the show and wish it would continue. however, there’s the issue of the Army character… He wears his ACU shirt tucked-in, his collar popped, his sleeves pushed up, doesn’t shave, and has non-reg haircut. As a retired Army officer, every time I see that douchebag disrespecting the uniform like that, I just want to beat the crap out of him. I guess Hollywood types have no idea how disrespectful that is. Two veterans, it’s like he is spitting on the graves of Service members. Yes, it is that big of a deal to those of us who have served.

I love this new series, it’s different and intensely interesting. I would hate to see it leave before its done.

The series was interesting. There was alot of suspense. This series should be continued.


DMBNyberg June 4, 2014 at 9:46 pm

I have watched all but one episode. We had such a bad storm that night our satellite was out. I thought I was going to have a meltdown. I then knew I was addicted to this show. LOL I have enjoyed this show very much. It is so different than the cop shows, the murder/sex crimes and comedies. It keeps me guessing and looking forward to the next episode. I never watch the *next time on*. I always shut that off and let that be a surprise. It will be disappointing to me if this show gets cancelled.

It’s the kind of show that you need to stay with and be part of from the very beginning. It certainly is high quality in terms of the overall production, unlike some other syfy series. Really do hope it’s renewed, because the story line is really heading into very interesting directions.

I love the show and it will be sad to see another good show go. I was finally thrilled to watch a show that does not have wolf, vampires, or medieval characters. This was my first try at this network, I hope they do not disappoint me.


DFreeland March 23, 2014 at 2:38 am

I love the show, I find it very entertaining and different. Wonderful actors, was disappointed that one of my favorite characters died. I really hope it gets renewed. I am tired of networks being over run with lame reality shows.

Helix has been on Friday evenings at 10:00 PM since its beginning, without any missing weeks. As of today (March 12, 2014), only 3 more episodes remain, in the season. If you have access to On Demand, I would definitely catch up on the weeks you missed (a lot has happened!). If you do not have On Demand, perhaps if you go to, you might be able to find full episodes (not completely sure on that one, but it’s worth checking into). Who is your TV provider (Charter, Comcast, Dish, etc.)?


Donna March 25, 2014 at 2:11 pm

I tried to watch The White Room on Hulu but had problems with them but now I can watch it on Dish on Friday, March 28. This is the only one I missed. You can also buy an episode from Amazon too.

Ref Helix – why has it not been shown the past couple of weeks ?? – my wife and I were really enjoying it – please advise that it is going to continue
