Helix "Bloodline" 2/21/14 [SPOILED]

Well. I guess Constance shouldn't have given Hiroshi the watch.

A few seconds into the dinner scene, I was yelling "Alien rip-off" at the screen. But, by the end of it I was laughing out loud.

Another Alien inspired moment with Julia in the air ducts and the vector sniffing her and moving on. (Pregnant Ripley).

Why do these people forget to wear gloves when outside in the Artic?

WTF is next?

Yeah, that was hilarious. At first I thought, "Haven't any of these people seen Alien?!?" Then, I thought "Guess so!"

And another amusingly inappropriate lead-in to that wacky title music.

And what's with putting her (Sutton aka Jeri Ryan) head out there in the frozen field? I love the wacky music. I turn up the volume big time when I watch this show.

And we've already seen that they have other heads there. The doctor that they were looking for a few weeks ago turned out to be a head in one of those containers.

I keep waiting for the heads to start talking a la Futurama.

Sutton was probably a hoot for Jeri Ryan to play but I'm so glad she's dead. A terrible, waaaaaaaay over the top, cartoonish character.

I wonder when Balleseros and the Inuit cop lady are going to get it on.

I was surprised that Dr. Hottie dropped her sonic wave weapon. It worked out in the end but it was an effective weapon against Sutton and her henchmen.

She should have brought her Borg costume.

On this show, you never know who's gonna end up related to who.

From the Siffy/Helix website: FAQ

Q: What is Ilaria's stance on animal and human testing?

A: Although our methods are strictly confidential, Ilaria promises not to harm any humans or animals during our testing.



I guess some people never got the memo.

Or maybe not so poor. We don't know the survival capabilities of Their Kind.

But he really probably didn't have time to explain everything. Leaving the photo explained a lot.

I'm trying to remember another show that has found such solid footing after what seemed like such a shaky start. It's gone from meh to hmm to mmmmm....

I absolutely loved the Alien parody. It reminded me of one of Supernatural's strengths - drawing from other sources but with an in-scene acknowledgement that elevates the moment from plagiarism to clever homage.

It would have taken 30 seconds: "Years ago, I kidnapped you, raised you, experimented on you and brainwashed you. Run!!!"

But at least they tried. As opposed to most shows, where it never occurs to anybody to share information.

As this episode got close to the end, I thought it was going to wrap everything up. How many more episodes are there?

Are we certain she was kidnapped? I'm thinking that somehow he is the biological father.

Heck maybe she was kidnapped from him, and he's been searching for her or something.

I have no idea if she was actually kidnapped, I was just trying to show that Hataki could have given her the Cliff Notes version of their back story. I wonder if he'll use the "I was trying to protect you" line.

The way Hatake uses so many ... dramatic pauses ... it would have taken ... more ... than 30 seconds.

I'm not sure it's intentional. It might be due to problems with the language, memorizing his lines or a neurological disorder.

Something I just remembered. It seems that the vectors now have x-ray vision. I don't know if we've seen this before. But, what the hell kind of virus/nanobot/condition can give a human being x-ray vision?

It was the first time we saw that, I believe. I didn't take it as being X-Ray vision, per se - more like artistic license showing the vectors sensing the difference between infected and non-infected. It did look x-ray-like, though, in the way it was shown, because it showed an outline of their bones in glowing green.

The virus is design to re-program and change the host DNA. Change it into what is the question.
