Helix TV series

SyFy’s Helix dares to stand out in a landscape already filled to capacity with genre-based behemoths, like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Where those series tackle issues on a massive scale, Helix smartly stays small by giving its ensemble cast a tiny stage to showcase one of the best new series of 2014.

Science fiction is quite possibly the most difficult of all genres to turn into a success; it is also the most fragile. Helix executive producer Ronald D. Moore achieved acclaim with his reimagining of Battlestar Galactica by disguising relevant topics such as terrorism, religion, and racism into a series about robots wanting to destroy their makers. Moore’s show was deeply layered, and was not just another space opera with strange looking creatures.

Unlike Battlestar, Helix does not take place in outer space, but rather an isolated research facility somewhere in the Arctic. The primary strength of this series resides in its setting. The fact that these scientists are locked away in a frozen wasteland with a highly volatile virus is the perfect playground for creator Cameron Porsandeh to tell his story. When the team from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) arrive at the base, the mystery has already begun. Like any good mystery, some questions are best left unanswered, giving the viewer a reason to come back for more.

  • Famous Quotes In History

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
