Helix Season 1: First 15 Minutes
Check out the first fifteen minutes of Ron Moore's Helix before it premieres Friday on Syfy. I kinda wish Moore's 17th Precinct had gone beyond the pilot stage but this seems interesting enough...
Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic, Arctic Biosystems, to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel.
Given the setting, The Thing comparisons are inevitable. And while I could do with out the soap opera elements, I'll hold my tongue for now. It's just good to see the science fiction channel actually producing a Sci-Fi show.
