Exclusive: Mark Ghanimé Talks Helix Season Two

Mark GhaniméTonight another new episode of Helix airs on Syfy. The season has been full of shocks and twists. This season Sergio Balleseros, played by Mark Ghanimé, has still been working at Ilaria, but he has been working with Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky) to find a way to stop them from committing genocide in an attempt to control the population.

Last week on Helix, Balleseros fell from a bell tower after having been pushed off by Sister Amy (Alison Louder), and viewers were left to debate his fate.

Yesterday Ghanimé talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about his work on the show and his character's journey.

Balleseros loyalties have continued to change this season. Ghanimé talked a bit about what thinks really brought the changes on, since there weren't any flashbacks. "I don't think it had to do with Julia. I think it had to do with what Hatake (Hiroyuki Sanada) was doing with the kids in season one and my relationship with Anana (Luciana Carro). That kind of got me going on this better path, and I think I linked up with Julia because it afforded me the opportunity to get in on the inside. Just like she was using me for whatever reason, Balleseros wasn't going to just be someone's whipping boy again, but he developed feelings for her, and he developed care towards her, and as they worked together more and spent more time together, he wanted to take care of her and make sure the mission got done."

Helix - Mother - 2.10 Review

HelixLast night's Helix was a doozy, and half the characters have gone off the deep end.

Last week Sarah attempted to make Landry immortal, and this week we get to see the complete result of that disaster, as he looks like Quasimodo. Amy has absolutely no patience and flips her lid, demanding Sarah fix it. Sarah is running out of time, as now Amy found another immortal to get what she wants from: Julia.

Julia thinks she can stop Ilaria from genocide by finding Michael's research for global sterilization. They just need the "mother" tree root, which Michael entrusted the location of to only two people: Anne and Landry - her son. So crazy Amy has been getting off her own brother. Though apparently everyone on the island is related to her anyway, as Michael has been raping all the women of the island. I think this show likes incest a bit too much.

iZombie - a Quirky, Fun, & Unique Take on the Genre

iZombieTuesday The CW will be premiering its new series, iZombie.

Zombies are certainly popular as of late with the success of the hugely watched The Walking Dead and other recent projects like Syfy's Z Nation and films the past few years such as World War Z and Warm Bodies. Comparisons are obviously going to be made by many. Upon reading about iZombie, however, it seemed like it would be something different, and it was.

iZombie is a quirky and fun romp. It's got the humor and heart of Warm Bodies, but it's definitely its own thing. The show doesn't take itself too serious at times, which is as it should be.

The series, which is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for the comic book of the same name, follows Olivia "Liv" Moore, played by Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time), who has a bright future ahead of her in medicine and even a handsome fiance (Robert Buckley); everything is falling into place. Then suddenly everything is ripped away from her one night when she is turned into a zombie. Everything changes, from her look, to her upbeat personality.

Review: The Last Man on Earth

The Last Man on EarthIf you haven't seen tonight's episode, please be aware there are spoilers within.

When I started to watch The Last Man on Earth, I wasn't sure what to think. As I watched, what I realized was that seeing what Phil (Will Forte) did, once he realized he could pretty much do anything, was really funny. I just wasn't sure at first how a show of one man talking to himself and inanimate objects could be sustained for a full series. I thought that while Forte is hilarious in his pursuit of ending his boredom and loneliness, there are probably only so many places to go with it. I was happy to be wrong.

Helix - M. Domestica - 2.06 Post Mortem

HelixFollowing the review is a roundup of questions and answers, as well as a detailed recap of the episode.

I quite enjoyed this week's episode of Helix, there was quite a lot going on. It was great not only to see more of Balleseros, but also to see him and Julia in the present (or near past). It's great to now also know that Julia has not gone over to the dark side. It's unclear if Balleseros is completely on her side, but that's not unexpected with him.

The pieces are starting to connect. We now finally know the reason for NARVIK - to thin the herd so the world will sustain life for just the "essential" people that Ilaria chooses. Obviously, not all the members are on board. This also leads viewers to believe that NARVIK C could potentially be the disease that ended up killing off many of the immortals.

The new storyline with Mademoiselle Durant also seems connected, as she mentioned the rogue immortal that is working on something that can stop Ilaria - obviously leading viewers to believe this immortal to be Brother Michael, which is probably why Balleseros sent Peter to the island (this is assuming these scenes took place before Peter arrived). It doesn't, however, sound like this person though is necessarily doing it to help humanity.
