    That got me thinking, what if the entire show, so far is an hallucination, and someone wake up and find the world infected. :D

    OT and FWIW they're screwing with the episode order at Fox, this week was production #004 which would have been before the "sexbot" episode #005 they showed 2nd and after the "remote control pacemaker" episode. It's an absolute mess as far as arc story lines because of that.

    Now that would be a Michael Moore twist.

    I am not happy with the out of sequence stuff. I think watching the episodes out of sequence is worse than having them earlier. They were not that bad, but having them in weird order makes them be worse.

    The last few episodes have been pretty good, I hope there is still a chance for renewal (AH)

    I think it's my fault that we are off topic, sorry about that.

    Oops, Diane was talking about Almost Human, and I responded without realizing this is a Helix thread. Deleting my post.

    We (or I) should probably start a Helix season 1 spoilers thread since it looks like we're sticking with it until the end of the season.

    I like Almost Human better than this one.

    agreed. almost human is so clean and neat comparatively, though, and helix has a dirty edge, which makes me hold out hope for better story and character development as it continues.

    did i mention i love the opening title credit with the elevator music? :p

    Man, this show has gotten to be halfway decent! I'm no longer embarrassed to watch it!
    And how they always lead into it with something dark and dangerous that makes the music totally incongruous.

    So, Pharma is the big bad? I've always suspected the drug companies of putting profits ahead of anything else. But, to create a virus to "Thin the herd"? That seems a stretch even for them. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, the "thin the herd" comment had me wondering if we're going to be seeing some sort of alien invasion plot line develop, where this particular Big Pharma company isn't exactly human and is interested in a global hostile takeover.

    Better and better every week. I'm really enjoying it now.

    I'm not good with faces. Is the actor playing 'The Assassin' from the latest episode anyone noteworthy? I got the impression it was supposed to be some kind of dramatic reveal when he removed the mask.

    I took the dramatic reveal to be age more than anything, I didn't recognize him.

    I think I kind of recognized him from some other show. He certainly isn't a "name" actor.

    I think the "reveal" was his eyes. But there's no time to talk about it right now...later.

    BTW, how many lower levels does this place with bay windows (I wonder if there's a Florida room we haven't seen yet?) in a polar environment have? It's like some kind of weird negative onion. Oh, that's right...no time to talk about it right now. ;)

    OK I stopped watching BSG after the first season for some reason and never got back to it. Are you serious, the cylons were angels?
