TV Series: Helix (Season One)



 Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to the high-tech research facility, Arctic BioSystems to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel

Original Title: Helix
Genres: Sci-Fi, Thriller

 After seeing 6 episodes I think this series are getting better and better. The characters are complex and at any time one of them could popup dead. I like the intrigues between the different factions and the way the action change between characters. 
I really enjoy the experiences of Drª Julia Walker, in the fifth and sixth episodes. After seeing both episodes it was a bit mindblowing to know that she is hallucinating and most characters we see her with are only a fabrication of her mind. Each character also are not bad or good, with the exception of the Dr Alan that is a white knight. They are gray. They have some bad intentions (or so we think) but each one is develop so we can start feeling something for them. 

The other interesting part of this series is the pace  and the music. The music tie-in with this series are quite interesting choice because they are not that typical - Bossa Nova methinks, and music you would expect hearing when on an elevator.

It depends on what is the Virus and it's intentions behind the corporate controling the facility are I think this series can go far.
