    Default Helix (Ron Moore) - speculation/discussion/spoilers

    I searched the forum and couldn't find a thread on this. If there is please merge

    The show is called Helix. SyFy has given a straight to series order bypassing the pilot stage. I guess producing a great series like BSG gains some major faith in your work from network execs.

    The cable network announced Thursday that it has given a straight-to-series order to Ron Moore's drama Helix.

    The 13-episode series, which bypassed the pilot stage, is described as a thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak. There, they find themselves in a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind's salvation or total annihilation.

    Moore (Battlestar Galactica) will executive produce the drama alongside Lynda Obst (Contact), Steven Maeda (Lost, The X-Files) and Cameron Porsandeh, who penned the pilot of the Sony Pictures Television entry.

    This is airing on SyFy, but the description makes it seems like this will just be a drama. Not sure what Sci-Fi elements, if any, will be part of the show. Remains to be seen.

    One rumor I heard was that there would be zombies.

    Anything is better than another reality show.

    I like Zombies so I wouldn't mind. I'll try anything of Ron Moore's anyway. Even reality if it's good like Face Off.

    Wasn't to clean on his last attempt at a new tv Virtuality. And BSG steadily got worse throughout it run.

    The plot doesn't sound wholly original either. I think their are a lot better and more original ideas out there waiting to get made.

    If Syfy wants it own Walking Dead, it could do no worse than just import Utopia, I am sure it will find an audience a huge audience the US, at least it should and it ten times better than anything Ron Moore is likely to come up with.

    The first fifteen minutes of Helix is available to watch on Youtube.



    The show premiers in one week.

    Edit: Nevermind, guess they took it down. Weird, cause it was put up by SyFy in the first place.

    I'll probably give this show a shot, mostly because not much else is on at the moment. I'm a little curious, but nothing about the show really pulls me in that much. I'm hoping maybe the show has something original that will make it interesting, instead of just another disease\genetic engineering process that turns people in some sort of zombies.

    Great, they steal my name, maybe I should sue them?
    At least I hope the show is good, otherwise I have to change it.

    I liked the 3rd episode that they streamed on syfy (episode 1 and 2 were the premier) much better than the series premier. My big gripe with the show is that I don't feel any connection with any of the characters except maybe the fat blonde one. The rest of the characters are just kind of blah. And, I can't see how they can stretch this series out very long while isolated at the research facility unless they manage to break containment and go global. The opening theme song is a little weird and seems out of character for the tone of the show.

    I watched the first two and then was real surprised to see that SyFy released the 3rd already. So far, ho-hum. I'm sure Ron Moore has a way to make this all interesting. With a 13 episode order and the first 3 already burnt, something needs to happen soon, I would think. I'll keep watching just to see...

    I found it interesting.

    I only have seen the season premier. I am not watching it on-line at them moment.

    Spoiler:
    Does anyone else think that humans are being experimented on by aliens. I think the government thinks they are in control of the project but I sense that maybe someone else/alien might be running the show.
