SyFy has been working to redefine itself somewhat, with movie-inspired series such as 12 Monkeys and Ascension and to, well, varying degrees of success. The channel’s other original series Helix is also redefining itself for the second season. Or the show is changing up a few noticeable things, at least, trading the frigid “lab under ice” setting of the first season for a remote island. Check out the Helix season 2 trailer below for a taste of the new season. Read More »

Helix, the new show from Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica) has been previewed in a series of atmospheric and ominous teasers. But it’s the main print ad (above), also seen around LA on giant billboards, that has really caught my attention. (Nothing like staring at an exploding head while you’re stuck in traffic.) Now, with just under a week to go before the show premieres, SyFy has put the first fifteen minutes online, so you can preview the beginning of the show’s disastrous situation in the Arctic.

Battlestar Galactica revival mastermind Ron Moore has a new sci-fi show coming in 2014. Helix follows a group from the Centers for Disease Control that travels to the Arctic to research the outbreak of a disease. There, they find that things are really much worse and more life-threatening than they thought. The cast is led by Billy Campbell (Once and Again) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Revenge, Lost).
It’s been a couple of months since we posted the first teaser for Helix, but a few new videos showed up this week. In fact, there are quite a few, which tease tone and horror more than specific plot points, and we’ve got them all below. Read More »

Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore is returning to Syfy this winter with another tale of people isolated in inhospitable surroundings, as the threat of the end of all humanity looms over them. The specifics, however, are very different this time around.
Helix follows a group of CDC scientists who journey to the Arctic to look into reports of a disease outbreak at a research facility, and then quickly discover that the problem is much more horrifying than they’d feared. Check out the first real trailer after the jump.
Not as many surprises on the Friday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2013, but that doesn’t mean it’s not big. Actually, it’s huge.
The second biggest day of the Con will feature a loaded Hall H day including The World’s End, Kick-Ass 2, Riddick, Veronica Mars, RoboCop, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and even two huge TV entries, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
But that’s not all. Also on Friday you’ll see The Legend of Korra, Ron Moore‘s Helix, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Drew Struzan, Joss Whedon, Vikings, Roger Rabbit and Metallica. Yes. Metallica.
