  • Helix 1×11 Review: Black Rain

    As far as I can tell, despite being only two episodes away from the end of its first season, Helix has yet to be renewed for a second.  Between that and the storyline (or lack of it?) in this week’s episode, I’m beginning to wonder if the writers even care anymore. Or – even worse […]


  • Helix 1×10 Review: Fushigi

    With only three episodes left in its first season – and as yet, no announcement that Helix has been picked up for a second – I’m beginning to wonder if this show is ever going to take itself in a logical direction. Though there have been several quality episodes, they are sadly bogged down with […]


  • Helix 1×9 Review: Level X

    Let it be known that on the ninth episode of Helix, things actually happened (and some of them were seriously disgusting, but I suppose that’s besides the point)! Unlike last week’s episode, which was action-packed but failed to drive the story forward, Level X had a great combination of plot development and interesting events. The […]


  • Helix 1×8 Review: Bloodline

    Despite giving us an action-packed eighth episode, I can’t help but feel that with Bloodline, Helix took two steps back to last week’s one step forward. Essentially, the latest installment of this show was one giant game of cat and mouse. Hatake was locked up, Julia was locked up, Alan and Sarah were locked up. […]


  • Helix 1×7 Review: Survivor Zero

    After this week’s episode of Helix, I almost felt like I’d hit the jackpot. Why? Now that a crew of people from Arctic Biosystems’ parent company, Ilaria, have arrived, we finally have more characters! Though only one – Sutton – was given both a name and substance, I have to say…I’ve got a good feeling […]


  • Helix 1×6 Review: Aniqatiga

    Where the past two episodes of Helix have been frustrating on several levels, Aniqatiga sheds light on some of the show’s mysteries while presenting more questions. So let’s be honest, that makes it the best episode since 274. I mean, who hasn’t been wondering about the details of cold-hearted Hatake ‘adopting’ Daniel, the man now […]


  • Helix 1×5 Review: The White Room

    It’s no secret that last week’s episode of Helix left me feeling more than a little bit jaded, but the opening scene of The White Room was a curiosity-inducing one. Balleseros needs to find some doctor whose name he doesn’t recognize? Were those monkeys still alive somehow? And why is Dr. Hatake is stabbing himself? […]


  • Helix 1×4 Review: Single Strand

    I’m the type of person who usually won’t give a television show too much of my time if I’m not immediately ‘feeling it’ – I rarely make it to tv.com’s “4-Episode Test” unless I’m already hooked, and even then, if a show hits a slump at that point, I’ll keep going – at least for […]
