What the Helix Podcast 12, the Finale

Hi Listeners,

So here’s the final What the Helix until 2015. It seems like quite a long time, but I’m glad that we at least know for sure now that #RenewHelix went from being a hashtag to a reality! In our final podcast till then we discuss everything we got answers to as well as new questions. And if nothing else we agree on how mad we are at Peter!

What the Helix, Podcast “9”, Going BANANA’s!

What the Helix Podcast 9

Hi Listeners,

After some schedule conflicts we’re back to podcasting! We loved recapping this episode as much as we loved BANANA finally coming together. We also debate more of the virus’ properties, and we’re happy that it looks like thanks to Julia, Sarah’s going to be sticking around. Have a listen and let us know your thoughts and theories!

What the Helix Podcast 8, Team Twins!

Hi Listeners,

We’ve had some issues getting the podcast up this week, but we wanted to get a couple thoughts on the record before the new episode of Helix starts tonight.

First, Shannon and Jeremy both agree that we’re team twins and love that Miksa has spent some time with his twin brother Tulok, even if it involved punching. Also we both love how Sergio really stepped up to help save everyone.

Second Shannon and Jeremy disagree about Dr. Adrian. Shannon thinks that he’s working for an outside party while Jeremy is pretty sure that he was essentially a fail safe for Illaria, with instructions to get the virus if things started to go bad.

Also, when it comes to Julia we now have confirmation that she’s biologically Hatake’s daughter.

When it comes to Peter though, we’re not sure what to expect, but we’re looking forward to watching it!

Hopefully we’ll have the podcast for last week’s episode and tonight’s episode up sometime tomorrow, so for those that listen, Keep Calm and Carry On.

Spreading Helix

helix_2560x1450_1280x725_97420355776Hi Readers,

This post is a bit different. It involves a call to action. Any of you that follow this blog know that one of the shows we cover is Syfy’s Helix, through our weekly What the Helix Podcast.

The show is nine episodes into its first season, and is one of the best new shows out there. Despite the community that has developed on social media (especially twitter, where the show’s fabulous actors are very gracious with their time and tweets), we’ve yet to get any confirmation that Helix is spreading beyond season one.

RhysJamesHelixBannerPart of the surprise is that the contagion that is the Helix fanbase is spreading, with amazing artwork popping up by  artists like Rhys James (who you can follow on twitter @ElectricRhys),

topen letters to SyFy by bloggers, , who like myself, would much rather have a second season of Helix than Sharknado 2, there’s a desire to see this show go the distance.

While we’ve gotten statements from producer Steven Maeda that he’s

“cautiously optimistic on a Season 2 pickup”

as a fan I’m not so sure. Do I think it deserves a second season, definitely, but so did everyone who ever watched Firefly.

And Megwun Fairbrother who plays Daniel (aka Miksa) and his twin brother Tulok, has said in regards to the open letter:

 

So here’s what I’m asking, if you love #Helix do a few things:

PeterVectorAwakeFirst, watch it, as close to live as possible. Second share that you’re watching it, overuse hashtags (especially #HELIX) to get your point across, and third, behave like a vector,and share your love and enthusiasm for the show with everyone you come in contact with!!!

Think of how awesome a second season of this would be! Because trust me, it would definitely be awesome.

If you don’t believe just take a look at all the love for a second season coming from www.renewhelix.com, and make sure to add #RenewHelix to the hashtag campaign to keep this show going!

Till then, Keep Calm and Carry On.

#HELIX #RenewHelix

What the Helix Podcast 6, Square the Circle

What the Helix Podcast 6Hi listeners,

This week on Helix we got lots of answers, and even more questions. On the podcast we heavily discussed why we’re loving to hate Constance Sutton, why we hate that we won’t get #BANANA, as well as venturing into biomedical questions about the purposes of the virus and genetics with an example of how people with sickle cell anemia are able to survive malaria. Below the screenshots of key moments is a link to an article about about, that is much more scientific, and much less rambly than Shannon’s theories and thoughts about the virus.
