Helix: Coming to SyFy in January

Helix: Billy Campbell

SyFy is a favorite channel. I’ve loved Eureka, Warehouse 13, Defiance, Continuum, and Lost Girl. I even watch Haven sometimes, although it isn’t nearly as good as the other shows I mentioned.

Helix, a show coming in the new year, looks like it may be another favorite. Here’s the trailer.

Here are some things it has going for it.

  • Stories about the CDC and mysterious viral outbreaks always interest me.
  • Billy Campbell is playing the lead character. I like him. This is important because I tend to watch shows with female lead characters. When I entertain thoughts of watching a male led story, the guy better be someone I can tolerate.
  • There are plenty of women characters in the story, including a newly announced part for Jeri Ryan.
  • The show is partly the work of Ron Moore, who worked on Battlestar Gallactica in all its incarnations and on Carnivàle, a show I enjoyed for the weirdness.

I have a friend who won’t watch anything sci fi. She’s perfect except for this one defect. Personally, I love the weird stuff.

Are you interested? There are a bunch of clips from the show at SyFy.com. Check it out and let me know if you think you’ll be watching.
