Re: Helix - Ron Moore

I IMDBed Jennifer because it seems like she's really not been trying to stay famous.

Found something called The $treet.

Ultradrama about Stockbrokers circa 2001.

Watching the pilot now.

Pretty sure he's gay, so he may not really consider those things big achievements.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Actor kissing is not real kissing, mechanically it might as well be real kissing, but you can't be invested or treat it as important or the other actor starts thinking that you are a skeevy rapist.

I should have only meant it as a status thing.

(Google says that Billy was Gay for pay on Dynasty for a couple years, but if he is gay in real life, that that hasn't been confirmed yet, although he has been romantically linked to Jennifer Connelly and Virginia Madsen for about 15 years.)

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Wow -- people are sooo not into this show that No one has commented yet about the 2/21 episode?

I saw a bit of the pilot, but didn't check in again until last week. This week's was really good.

Jeri Ryan has done a great job in her role.

And i really like Hatake...i thought he was going to be like Robert Carlysle in Stargate Universe. He's showing a lot more sympathy, and a lot of layers i am interested in. Hiroyuki Sanada does a great job in giving this introverted character depth.

However, I am disappointed,...


Also disappointed that...



What do the rest of you think?

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

I turned it off after Jeri Ryan's line about refusing medical treatment and her shirt being burned, sarcastically asking if her lieutenant was a tailor. The dialogue is SO mindnumbingly bad. I couldn't take it anymore. Gave it a shot, no more.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Ronald D. Moore was only indirectly involved in Helix's creative process and his name was cynically slapped on a unsatisfying, slightly boring final product to boost interest.

Helix has its moments (the crowd of frozen monkeys and uncomfortable Thanks Giving dinner) but after six weeks of trudging, it seems pretty clichéd and plodding, and full of lazy faux science and lack of common sense (both the containment team and corporate mercenary squad lack satellite phones?!).

I'm going to be mildly amused by Jeri Ryan's turn as a sexy villainess that gets the David Warner treatment, then flush it down the toilet.

Channel 5 has almost given up on it.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

There is so little scifi on TV now.

Any port in a storm.

It's not far off from Garth Marenghi's Darkplace at times. I still think it's best enjoyed as such.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Helix is not very good and Channel 5's shoddy/impatient treatment of it by shunting it to be broadcast on 5* at a later date is not unwarranted this time (they dumped Once Upon A Time?!) but I hear Helix is doing solidly on SyFy.

From what I've just read on some board (ahem, 4chan, khm), it went from bad, to terrible, to full retard... And now they just watch so they can make fun of it afterwards.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

I gave up the show after 4 episodes! I wanted this to be good. With no Trek on TV I'm always on the look out for a Sci-Fi fix. Just not a bad one.
