Default Helix: Anybody watching?

Besides me, that is? I'm kinda ambivalent on the story. Fortunately, the characters are mostly likeable enough that I am sticking with it, at least for the moment.

Anybody else tuning in the the Syphilitic channel, and watching it?

I'm watching, and like you, so far am still unsure. I'm afraid of it being one of those shows like Lost, where they just keep giving you new mysteries, and no answers.

I'm watching. I've been intrigued by some aspects of the plot, but the overall plot got stale.

Last nights episode was pretty interesting. I was only going to give it one more episode, so now I'll give it another two or three more. I also like the addition of Luciana Carro to the cast (she played Kat on BSG).

It's in the SyFylic channel... 'Nuff said. ::

If it turns out any good, they'll cancel it just to piss people off. Or turn it into such POS that will rot braincells.

It's what they do.

I watched the premier. The effects looked cheap and the story made little sense. I haven't watched another episode.

Tried watching a couple times and just quite get into it enough to dedicate any more time. On the other tentecle, I blew through the second season of Farscape this weekend without a problem at all.

Well, I did NOT see that coming...looks like we may have seen the last of the luscious (if bat-shit crazy) Jeri Ryan. Can't say that I am sad, because her character really was NUTS, and needed killing. On the plus side, she brought a nice energy to the screen, so if she doesn't return, it will be disappointing.

I thought it's definitely gotten better than the first couple of episodes. They've answered a bunch of questions, while posing even more. I rather like that in a series.

Haven't watched it yet. Mind you, I'm too afraid to commit to any new Sci Fi series these days because as soon as I get involved it will be cancelled.

So I've been watching episodes of Lost in Space recently. Better quality.o

Okay, Helix is definitely improving. That means Bonnie Hammer will be cancelling it in 3...2...1...

Oh, yeah. Much more gooder with each episode! That's why I like to give a few more episodes to a series that grab my attention with the pilot episode. Most series need a couple or half a dozen episodes to build up both the characters and some of the plot background. I guess that I've got a fairly decent attention span for shows than others have.
