They need to make room for these guys:
Why did the guy knife himself?
It seemed like he REALLY wanted to sell the story about having to defend himself against the people he murdered in cold blood.
I have to hand it to the show for tricking me on the whole
Is Jaye a hallucination bit. From the start, I was convinced that she wasn't really there and the show dropped hints to suggest that I was right. Then she started interacting with the environment (supporting Dr. Hitake, using a flashlight, the jacket compress, etc), and I resigned myself to being wrong. Then they did the Reveal and, in it, explicitly refuted those very moments. They got me. And they did it much better than it was done in another show that I can't figure out how to reference without giving a major spoiler for that show's entire season, so I'll leave it nameless.
For the moment, I'm glad I stayed around. It's not great, but it is definitely a step above Meh.
I don't know what the hell's going on with this show now but I'm intrigued and curious so I guess I'm in for the rest of the season.
Yeah, I don't know if my expectations have dropped sufficiently or if it's actually getting better, but I've found it more and more interesting, especially the last two episodes.
after watching next week's previews, it looks like a whole bunch of new cast members just conveniently landed with the supply drop...this could go on forever.
I assumed it was an invasion...
They've been talking about a supply drop, but only in the context of not expecting one any time soon.
Same. I thought I recalled them saying something about that since Bailiseros didn't report in, they would be coming. Whomever 'they' is, I'm thinking they're going to be the really bad people instead of the just so-so bad people we have running things now.
I was shocked to find out in the last episode that there's a town, complete with children and a sheriff a short distance away from the top secret biomedical virus lab. I figured the whole point of such a place was to locate it away from population centers. Furthermore, I didn't think there were towns in Antarctica (am I remembering the setting correctly? It is the Antarctic and not the arctic?)
The coordinates they once gave don't match anything, but in the first episode I thought it was pretty clearly supposed to be Greenland.
There still shouldn't be any towns anywhere near (they're on an ice sheet), but Helix.
That whole hallucination scene around the dining room table, with the "Nutcracker" music playing, was a real hoot.
I'm glad that I stuck with this. It hasn't improved much, but I'm definitely finding myself interested in tuning back in week after week.
Nice try, but you are not going to sucker me into going back.
How about this:
This is the greatest show Syfy has ever shown!*
*At 9:00 Central on Fridays in 2014.
It is much better than Cats.
I'm enjoying it
Me too. While it certainly isn't the best show on TV, it not the worst either. I have enjoyed watching it so far.
The funny thing is that the also borderline bad The Tomorrow People actually got interesting last week too.
I've been enjoying The Tomorrow People too.
The one that has been on probation for me is Almost Human, and that one actually had an interesting twist last week for me.
Though that plot line is apparently on the back burner given the ep description for this week....disappointing.
