Helix

Series Summary
Drs. Alan Farragut and Julia Walker -- scientists who used to be married and, at one time, worked for the Centers for Disease Control -- have seen their share of disease outbreaks in their careers, whether or their own or with the agency. The outbreaks seem to be getting worse every time, causing them to face life-and-death struggles in order to contain the viruses they come up against. Fighting the diseases usually leads the pathologists to remote and isolated locations, but failure to make the journeys could prevent efforts to contain the outbreaks and lead to annihilation of mankind.

  • Helix doesn't reinvent the virus thriller, but it's a solid slice of genre entertainment that offers some creepy visuals and believable scares. show more

  • Hints of a deeper mythology are revealed, too, suggesting that Helix will move beyond its stop-the-virus story into something even more intriguing. In the meantime, it's a suspenseful, scary thriller. show more

  • Created by Cameron Porsandeh, it’s a delicate balancing act [between science and thrills], but the two-episode premiere (airing with limited commercials) and a subsequent hour--enhanced by Campbell’s stiff-upper-lipped performance, and the clever promo slogan “Play God. Pay the price”--dangle enough DNA strands for a discerning audience to want to see where they might lead. show more
