Storyline

The quarantine floor has been sealed off but now that the communication satellite dish has been destroyed, Dr. Alan Farragut worries about their future. In particular, there is only one week's food on that level. In the quarantine itself, Julia tries to calm those who think they've just been locked away to die. They find a way to get some attention. She also finds someone lurking in the corridors. Alan wants to use the universal vaccine the lab has developed on his brother who he thinks is on his last legs. Sarah works with one of the scientists who thinks she is infected. She finally comes clean about the rapid response test not working. Written by garykmcd

Okay, getting better.
10 April 2015 | by ianmitchell-45214See all my reviews

I left a review on either episode 2 or 3 and I wasn't totally sold yet on the series. After having just watched episode 4, I'm at the stage of really being keen on the different motives of each character. One main problem I still have is that some of the characters are predictable. I have found certain villainous characters are going to keep doing typical bad things. I prefer it when everyone shows shades of grey since that's closer to real life. For instance, an amazing TV series I'd recommend would be The Wire. Even the so-called 'bad guys' in that weren't really obvious. Their motives for being into drugs, corruption and killing had layers upon layers of reasoning behind each topic. I fear in Helix, they wont add too many layers since it's going for simple sensations like "oh noes the infected are everywhere! Squeeeal!" while the heroes will keep saying things like "No! We need to save everyone at all costs." yadda yadda yadda. I hope I'm proved wrong.
