Advance Review: Helix Returns with More Chilling Mysteries

HelixHelix returns to Syfy for a second season of 13 episodes, starting on Friday. The show picks up about fifteen months after the events in season one. The team investigates a completely new deadly viral outbreak, this time on a cruise ship, which leads them to a mysterious island. The inhabitants of the island, members of a strange cult, however, are less than happy to see them.

The series doesn't drop the Narvik storyline, but it does focus more on the new virus. The storytelling and tone seem quite a bit different than last season, as of the first episode, in my opinion. I felt it focused on what is going on with the people on the island as much as it did the virus. Not that this is a bad thing in any way; it just feels different. It's also much different that the characters are out in the open, but as they are on an island, it does still have that great feeling of isolation and also claustrophobia. I found the episode to be very creepy and am really excited to find out more about the mysteries surrounding the cult.

Advance Review: 12 Monkeys - A Mind-Blowing & Wild Ride

12 MonkeysFriday Syfy premieres its new drama 12 Monkeys. The series is based on the film of the same name, and although the overarching plot comes from the film, the result is rather unique and definitely stands on it's own. The pilot sets up the series, and does take a bit from the film, but then it branches off.

The series follows Cole (Aaron Stanford), who is sent back in time by a group of scientists to stop a virus that kills most of humanity. Cole travels back and forward in time to try to save the world. He is helped in his past (2015), where the main part of the story takes place, by Dr. Cassandra Railley (Amanda Schull). The two follow clues to try to figure out what started the deadly chain of events.

Advance Review: Ascension - A Unique Voyage Into Space

By Jamie Ruby

AscensionMonday night Syfy premieres its new limited event, Ascension, which will run for three consecutive nights. The series follows a century-long space voyage as it has reached it's point of no return at fifty-one years, when there is a murder aboard the ship that will cause the crew and inhabitants to question their mission.

One of the interesting things about the series is that although it takes place in the present, the starship Ascension was launched in the 1960s. Therefore, none of the passengers have been influenced by the outside world and have developed their own society aboard the ship. As far as they know, they could be the last survivors of the human race after the Cold War. This makes it not only unique, but also poses problems for those dealing with the murder, as there is no outside help.
