  • Helix 2×13 Review: O Brave New World

    Let’s face it: Helix is a little crazy, and definitely has its own brand of strange. Since both Tara and I love the show, and we LOVED the finale, we decided to do something a little different for the Season Two finale review…so here’s a play-by-play of our thoughts as they happened during “O Brave New […]


  • Helix 2×12 Review: The Ascendant

    This week’s episode of Helix had me reeling. It definitely felt like a climax to the season, and since next week is the season finale, of course a lot happened, including a super intense cliffhanger. New alliances were formed, and lots of characters showed their true colors. But, as has been the case the past […]


  • Helix 2×11 Review: Plan B

    A lot happened this week in “Plan B,” and we continued down a very dark path. Well, in this case, it was mostly Peter’s dark path. Our favorite misunderstood brother took his ability to be brainwashed to the next level, and has become the most brutal character on the show. Perhaps the vector king had […]


  • Helix 2×10 Review: Mother

Just when we thought certain characters could not get any more selfish, pretty much every one in this episode did things that would […]


  • Helix 2×9 Review: Ectogenesis

    This was the week that Helix finally went over the damn top. We got more flashback characters (hey, Doreen!), infected cannibals, bleeding trees, and immortal babies out of utero. Every Friday, Helix has become the thing that I look forward to most, but “Ectogenesis” just did not do it for me. We finally entered into […]


  • 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 2×5 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, […]
