  • Helix 2×7 Review: Cross-Pollination

    In “Cross-Pollination,” we received a lot of background information into Michael, the followers, and the island of St. Germaine; so it was actually a very satisfying episode! We were even taken back to the year 1601 to learn about Michael’s quest, and why he started working on pollination for his “life’s” work in the first […]


  • Helix 2×6 Review: M. Domestica

    WARNING: Due to the content of the episode being reviewed, the following article contains brief mentions of incest and rape. There are a lot of reasons that SyFy has embraced the Twitter tag #WTFHelix, and wow, was “M. Domestica” full of those reasons. The opening scene included quite a few of them, as the episode […]


  • Helix 2×5 Review: Oubliette

    In this week’s episode of Helix, we actually opened with a bombshell: Kyle was hired onto the CDC team to collect intel on Alan to place him under arrest for the destruction of Arctic Biosystems and bombing of Ilaria in Paris. It appears that Kyle is working for Ilaria! Speaking of the company of immortals, […]


  • Helix 2×4 Review: Densho

    “Flight of the Bumblebee” was not only featured music in the latest episode of Helix, but bees in general played a prominent role in “Densho.” We finally got some answers about the mystery illness (along with a possible cause), saw even more familiar faces, and ended with the unknown fate of three of our favorite […]


  • Helix 2×3 Review: Scion

    Last week, fellow Geekiary writer Erin said that Helix 2×2 was an “unsettling” episode filled with the thing the Helix writers do best – that being, “crazy”. I certainly agree with her, and I really didn’t think they could take things much further…but in “Scion”, they absolutely did. First was the incredibly awkward opening scene […]


  • FEELINGS… with The Geekiary: Ep. 1

    Three girls from The Geekiary have a lot of feelings to share about all things geek. Erin, Tara and Von (aka Undie Girl) will be hosting “FEELINGS” the last Thursday of each month, to discuss recent new episodes of our favorite shows, upcoming movies we’re excited about, convention plans, and more. This months topics include: […]


  • Helix 2×2 Review: “Reunion”

    In this episode, there was a lot of what the writers of “Helix” do best: crazy. From the re-introduction of Dr. Alan Farragut to an update on Sarah’s pregnancy, we got a lot of answers, and even more questions than we were prepared for. If there’s one word to describe this episode, it would be “unsettling.” […]


  • Helix 2×1 Review: “San Jose”

    Syfy’s Helix is back, but this time, we are far away from the icy Arctic Biosystems. Instead, we are taken to a mysterious island, with a mysterious group of people running it. Just as we were completely isolated and claustrophobic in the Arctic, so are we on Saint Germaine Island. Also, the show runners really […]


  • Helix 1×13 Review: Dans L’Ombre

    Though the past two episodes seemed to take a step or two backward, one thing I can say for Helix is that it didn’t continue to do so in its season finale. In fact, each week viewers have seen the ticker that displays how many days it has been since the CDC crew arrived at […]


  • Helix 1×12 Review: The Reaping

    The first season of Helix is about to wrap up, but all I can think after watching the most recent episode is that they’re still too busy throwing around ‘shock bits’ to tell the story well. In fact, the vast majority of The Reaping – contrary to what its name implies – was no more […]
