and it started with such promise...oh, well...
But don't they have a plan?
Yes, but it's going to require the monkey to build a Bat signal.
I've said too much.
There probably is a plan. I just don't like its execution.
Well, I made it through 3 1/2 episodes. Just couldn't make it through all of the last one though.
Yeah I'm about to pull the plug too after watching the latest ep. I'm giving it one more chance...
I am pushing to finish this week's episode. But I think that will be it for me.
When I care more about what happened to the frozen monkeys than any of the protagonists, the show is bad, BAD. And that's w/o any of the ongoing sci-tech absurdities and the swiss cheese all over the map plot. I should have learned my lesson from BSG, but no. I'm likely bailing in one more episode before some dead person comes back as an "angel" or some plot twist that negates the entire preceding show arises for "creative artistic value". It's ludicrous like the excellently cast, yet sadly execrable "The Following"
I thought there were some glimmers of hope, and I'm still happy that Javier Grillo-Marxuach is now involved. Yes, it's a bad show, but it could still become good...all the elements are there. They just haven't pulled them together yet, and tossed out the ones that aren't working.
OK, big order. But still, in the words of the lottery billboards, "It could happen." With maybe the same odds.
Here's a more optimistic view than we've shown here, from io9. "This show is absolutely terrible every time it tries to "do science," and is great every time it veers into capturing its characters points of view." I wouldn't go so far as to say "great," but she has a point. This is science fiction that's at its weakest when it does science.
Meh, i09 are the ultimate uncritical fanboys (or girls)
Could not finish the episode. Had to pause to do something and I just could not go back. I will record still, and if it miraculously turns around like Rob hopes, maybe I will watch then.
If it happens in the next week or two, I'll let you know. Otherwise, it'll have to be someone else.
I enjoy contagion type stories also, here I am rooting for the contagion to win and wipe out the entire world. The "Science" use here make "Under the Dumb" look like real science.
We're ALL counting on you, Rob...I'm gonna stockpile the next two or three waiting for your report....
I cant do it......
I'd have to say it's pretty horrible when it tries to do drama, but it is even more horrible when it does science fiction.
I guess that's called taking one (or two) for the team!
I watched the first two episodes of Helix, then two more built up on my DVR and I realized I had no desire to catch up. So I'm now Helix-free.
Coworker said "it got really interesting in episode 4" I just watched it and I'm not really seeing what he's seeing, I'm not impressed, once again, it's a group of people finding things out AND NOT TELLING ANYONE! (gawd I hate that trope)
Well it doesn't take much but this show has now moved into "puts me to sleep" category. It joins W13 and NCIS-LA.
