Helix - "The Ascendant"

Helix – “The Ascendant” Review

Mother is dead. Nothing Julia was able to do right away was dead. So dead that they needed to go pleading to try to find the original tree. Julia’s hope was to look for the location of the tree based solely off a painting. After triangulating the painting with the current landscape, Julia somehow came…

Helix - "Ectogenesis"

Helix – “Ectogenesis” Review

I’m surprised that there are so many people still left alive. I’m not entirely sure how they managed to evade Michael’s culling. Either way, Ann was trying to console those who remained. however, she was preaching to the very people Amy was able to sway previously. They all flocked to her and her corruption unable…

Helix – “M. Domestica” Review

Last week we got a glimpse of the relationship Brother Michael had with the sisters. The fact that the sisters were his daughters was a bit creepy, however somewhat understandable.

Helix - "Oubliette"

Helix – “Oubliette” Review

She’s spent the last four episodes as…

Helix - "Scion"

Helix – “Scion” Review

Let’s start by pointing out how uncomfortable I was by Landry’s expressions and the moist noises that were going on as Sister Amy jerked him off. yeah. it was a bold way to start an episode, but the combination of the music left me wanting to hide. The way we learned that Hatake was on…
