SyFy debuts its new original series Helix on January 10, and they’ve released the first 15 minutes of the series online to whet the appetite. Take a look.
The show follows a group of CDC researchers that go on an excursion to the Arctic to find and destroy a virus like they were playing a Pandemic LARP. Lost and X-Files alum Steven Maeda will serve as the season one showrunner and the series is guaranteed 13 episodes.
From the look of the first quarter of the first episode, it looks like something that could keep the attention of hardcore science-fiction geeks, and maybe pull in some of the casual medical drama crowd. I’m going to tune in if only to see how Hiroyuki Sanada does because Lord Shengen.
