The team of scientists from the CDC are back for season 2. They left the blistery cold Artic and the Narvak virus behind them, only to be thrown in the trenches 15 months later when they are once again summoned to investigate a new virus in the remote island of St. Germaine. Meanwhile, the elusive but dangerous immortal group Ilaria continues to loom in the background. Jordan Hayes, who plays the pregnant CDC researcher Dr. Jordan Hayes, joins Eclipse Magazine to talk about her acting career and the tv show “Helix”.

Syfy’s Helix (Fridays, 10/9C) started out as an outbreak show – some kind of new virus struck members of an isolated research lab above the Arctic Circle and the CDC sent in a crack team to contain and cure it. Since then it has evolved – much like a virus does – into something similar but not quite the same. Now there are elements that suggest all manner of strangeness and, with this week’s new episode, Survivor One, there are new players and more layers coming to light.

After its successful premiere, Helix (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) has made a good impression. A large part of that is due to its cast, including Billy Campbell (as Dr. Alan Farragut) and Jordan Hayes (Dr. Sarah Jordan).
Earlier this week, Campbell and Hayes spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers about such topics as favorite set, the show’s biggest prankster and even a bit about what’s ahead.

Last Monday, Steven Maeda, showrunner of Syfy’s Helix (Mondays, 10/9C), and Kyra Zagorsky, one of the two female leads, talked with a group of journalists/bloggers about the 13-episode series and how it might appear to be an ‘outbreak’ show on the surface but there’s much more to it than that. As Maeda puts it, at some point, ‘what you thought the show was going to be about is not what the show is about…’
We also got an insight into Zagorsky’s process; a candidate for the eventual home video’s gag reel, and a hint or two about Helix’s ick-factor. All in all it was a very entertaining call.
Continue reading Maeda & Zagorsky: Helix Is Something More/Other Than An Outbreak Show!
There have been enough movies and television shows built around the idea of epidemic outbreaks hat it has pretty much become a trope. Helix (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) may the latest effort to use the idea, but it succeeds through a combination of terrific writing, mostly excellent casting, critical pacing and an unexpected use of music.
