Just watched the pilot, liking it so far. Has a lot of similarities to a lot of shows but not so much in that it feels like it's been done before. Admittedly the whole "outbreak" scenario has been done to death but as a guy who typically can't stand recycled material it's gripped me quite well. Off to watch episode 3 now :)

Edit: Watched episode 3, definitely something I enjoy :D Thanks for the heads up
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

I was looking forward to this show but It's not looking good



CDC scientist trying to catch an infected monkey with no protective gear then performing an autopsy on said monkey in a random unprotected room and without telling anyone else she's even doing it. Head of the CDC intentionally removes his protective gear to make some infected (intelligent scientists that have taken people hostage lol) trust him, really...? We are suppose to believe these people are the best the CDC have to offer.

lol yeah, it's far from realistic but I appreciate that they've done that rather than drag it out with "standard procedure" and unnecessary character building. If it had kept on the way it was looking like it was going I think I'd have called it a yawnfest instead lol

This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless.

It's not just the CDC though, literally everyone on the base aside from the security guards are suppose to be highly intelligent people with PHD or equivalents in there fields and they all act irrational , scared and lack common sense.

Granted they can't just follow real life procedure, the show would be over in two episodes, but then they shouldn't have set the show in a base full of the people on the planet best trained to deal with the situation and then make them all look incompetent. They should have just used any other generic research base like The Thing movie did where it made sense to see people freaking out, turning on each other and being paranoid. If the scientists continue making face palm decisions in every episode this show will just get cancelled

I had no idea landlines installed in billion dollar research facilities stopped working if the satellite breaks :lol:

well i have really gotten into this, it has more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing. Don't expect to pick this up in the middle and understand what has happened you need to see the whole thing from the start. but well worth watching.

Yeah the latest ep has left me wanting the next one too lol. Some parts of the story were really obvious from the start, and usually that annoys me, but this show gets away with it

Demand_FIVE
In our mission to bring fresh, dynamic content to viewers, not all our shows will succeed, and when shows under-perform then as a commercial channel we have to take action. As a result, the thrilling drama Helix will come back later in the year on 5*, after under-performing on the main channel.
