Yes, we're at another unfortunate moment in television broadcasting. When the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore have teamed up for yet another underwhelming project heavily inspired by something else (in this case, "John Carpenter's The Thing" movie from 1982.")
It doesn't end there, however. It never does when the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore do anything together. Yes, run for cover and strap yourself to a tree because the Internet is about to be bombarded with the usual barrage of thoroughly unrealistic (favorable) television reviews praising this production, as well as press releases massively pumping up the actual ratings of "Helix." We have been through all of this before with "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) and "Helix" will be no exception.
Yes, whenever there is a television production with the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore at the helm, realistic and negative television reviews are nowhere to be found on the Internet, and ratings claims are always pumped up on steroids.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
