So here I am thinking, what, is this guy so badass they can't shoot him? And then the assassin is taken out by a bitchslap? It's a good thing I wasn't drinking anything at that moment, lol

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Well...i guess it could be realitsitic in that each of us have weak moments, and COULD be taken out by something simple...though does seem anti-climatic. And just before that,



Miksa/Daniel dying...like they did this big reveal of his family, a brief reunion, and then that's it?! Though i guess that's why they have a twin, right?

OMG that episode was bad, I mean real bad! That scythe killer was laughable!

I kept wondering where he was hiding his scythe. It's not like he had a Highlander patented trench-coat.

Considering how old this kid is.

Scythes would have actually been used to cut lawns when he was mortal.

Odds are that he was the 15th century equivalent of the dim neighbour kid you pay 10 bucks to deal to your back yard.

"Helix has built one of our most loyal and consistent audiences in its first season on Syfy. The incredibly talented writing and producing team have crafted a thriller that consistently delivered suspense, twists and high quality drama."

The mind boggles.

Syfy wouldn't know high quality drama if it hit them in the head and introduced itself.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Second series? Good grief.

The last couple of episodes were appalling. Even The Event was more compelling. If only I could get those 13 hours back .

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

I actually enjoyed the whole series as relatively entertaining sci-fi with slick production values that reminded me of The Thing right up until the last couple episodes...and then the patented Ron Moore "I don't know what to do now with my awesome premise because I'm a hack" time jump reared its ugly head alongside an irritating teen villain with melee weapons and a young woman in horrible old lady make-up. And then they killed one of the only cool characters on the show before revealing that the hero who was forced to be a villain and was then saved and turned back to the light was actually a villain from the start. Fucking lame.

What a waste. Not really looking forward to next season, set in France of all places.

Sanada Hiroyuki is still The Man, though. He fucking rocks.

After seeing what happened to the Arctic Base, it's a possibility that the same thing could happen to France at the end of season 2.

Worth it just to see Seven's head thrown into a helicopter just to cheese off her son.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Ok, due to Channel 5's impatience and bumbling I finally got watch Helix continued with "Survivor Zero". Plodding, nonsensical and cliché as always, but Jeri Ryan is entertaining in a Michelle Pfeiffer playing Catwoman or Famke Janssen playing Xenia sort of way (and ridiculously younger looking than her years as well).

How did Sgt. Stabby sleep out in open in the North friggin Pole and why didn't Seven, being the chief of a quasi-military squad, have her own sat phone set like her gimp boyfriend Sgt. Stabby?

It burned through 3 seasons worth of material in 3 episodes should of made it last a lot longer.
