    I caught the 1st episode/pilot on Monday night as it aired on Channel 5 here in the UK.
    I was quite surprised as I wasn't aware it was going to be shown.

    It looks as though it is going to be an interesting show.

    Thumbs down Re: Helix (Ron Moore) - speculation/discussion/spoilers

    Ten minutes in,
    click channels,
    good-bye.



    Sorry, but when I see yet another group of polished "characters" from the Hollywood stock cupboard, fighting yet another virus in a remote laboratory (did they get permission to plant the Lab. so far out in the Arctic? Where were Greenpeace? Now that WOULD make an interesting sub-plot.... hmmmm, might write my own concept.) while yet another Big Corporation of AmericanLand try to Keep It SECRET, you can close your eyes plot the rest, and giggle.

    No. I'm not wasting another minute on this.

    But thanks for inspiring me to conceive of something different.

    I don't see how you can call the vet a polish character.

    Polished, glossy, plastic, too pretty for words and having all the character of a lump of dead putty.

    Umm. Why didn't the people upstairs just bust a window open to vent the co2? Yes it is -60 outside but breaking a small hole in a window isn't going to drop the interior temps severely.

    Why did they have to kill of the only interesting character?

    An too much sentimental stuff going on.

    And his brother isn't dead, because the virus isn't design to kill, I'm guessing the stopping of the heart is just the final phase of the transformation.

    So the zombies don't attack the director of the facility, interesting.

    One got to wonder how the scientist with the tumour got through basic medical checks.

    I don't think Doreen is dead. How stupid are these supposed experts not to be wearing biohazard suits when working with a deadly and unknown pathogen just because they think it's not airborne? A lot of germs aren't airborne like ebola, yet still require special equipment beyond a face guard and some gloves.

    She been inject with a huge dose of a unknown substance and she has dozens of infected rats crawling over her, whole an a massive shelf chuck on top of her. I very much doubt she going to turn to be alive.

    I'm trying to like the show since I want good sci-fi on TV, but the science (and science protocols) is horrible - like the microscopy (you can maybe see viruses using an electron microscope if you're very, very lucky), the test for the "infected," etc. If you want to make things more accurate, talk to a graduate science student and run things by them (trust me we'll work for cheap).

    I watched it last night, and i'm getting a bit fed up of the knowing glances between that Chinese doctor, and the security guard, and i'm getting fed up with who has jurisdiction?. No it's not getting me.

    I see that they gave the show a 13 episode initial order. Of all the shows I record, Helix has been the last one I watch and that's mostly in self-defense. I'm not real impressed but I do hold out a bit of hope. I believe that what's been shown so far is just the preamble to main event. I'm hoping that the real story is still just a few episodes away. I've no concrete facts other than I have to believe that there's a whole lot more to this story other than what we've witnessed so far. I mean, so far, this whole show is pretty weak. I bet the lid's going to be blown off very soon. If it's not, then this has been a huge waste of time and money for SyFy.

    Only thing is, if they don't get to it pretty soon they are going to lose what viewers they have. Maybe this week?

    I actually quite enjoyed the fourth episode, alot more mystery about it, i like Mr Hatake's enigmatic personality he adds something to the show

    i've likened this to Doctor Who - The Waters of Mars, but if The Doctor took A really really really long time to figure out the water zombie people and how to stop them lol its not bad but it does need to pick up the pace abit episode 4 is a good start

    I really liked the latest episode(5?). I find Sarah(the young blond doctor) really annoying though.
