I mentioned this to my wife, and she said "Yeah - the only character I liked. No reason to watch now."

I've continued to watch this and you guys were right it's horrible but I can't stop. It's taken on a camp quality as they keep adding on more and more ludicrous plot twists that it's fun just to see how many stupid twists they can introduce without resolving anything. It's like a parody of scientific thriller shows, it might become a cult classic someday.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Yeah I feel asleep during last episode and haven't been motivated to watch it and it's almost Sunday night for me.

So what exactly was Ron Moore's involvement in this? I guess he hasn't written any of the scripts and is just one of three executive producers?

Wow, you guys hate it too?

So it doesn't get any better after the pilot after all? Because the pilot was laughably bad.

It certainly wasn't better in the second week's episode, that's when I decided to bail.

Re: Helix - Ron Moore

Craggy faced boring CDC guy was both the Rocketeer and the Antivillain (If antihero is a thing, then so is antiviillain.) from the 4400... And he was pretty good as the prime suspect in the The killing as well.

It's really a question of if they are going to ever get off that base.

He was also the Outrageous Okona.
Though I'm sure he'd prefer to forget that too.
