Weekend Review: Helix, Enlisted, True Detective

Billy Campbell, Hiroyuki Sanada

Made you jump. It's about time a Syfy show had that effect on us again.

Syfy's Helix (Friday, 10/9c) is a chiller in every sense of the word, a welcome return to gripping sci-fi form for a network that has lately ceded bragging rights to AMC (The Walking Dead), FX (American Horror Story) and even The CW (The Vampire Diaries) in the competitive arena of hardcore genre buzz. The spirit of Michael Crichton permeates this claustrophobic exercise in suspenseful paranoia, from Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore and series creator Cameron Porsandeh, who sets the first season almost entirely at an icy Arctic research compound that's actually a hothouse for mysteriously grisly medical experiments.

When a team from the Centers for Disease Control arrives on the scene, the researchers discover a disease that has killed at least two and turned a third man into an unstoppable monster attempting to spread the disease.

Ron Moore and David Eick Tease Battlestar's End, Caprica's Beginning

Battlestar Galactica

Fire up your raptors, Battlestar Galactica fans, the final season of the Peabody Award-winning show begins Jan. 16 at 10 pm/ET on Sci Fi. If you're like us, you have so... many... frakkin' questions! The biggest one: "Will all of our questions actually be answered?" Executive producers Ron D. Moore and David Eick tease what's next for the four Cylons revealed this past season, assured us we won't need to wait the very last episode for the fifth Cylon's identity and gave some details the prequel series, Caprica, which is set to air in early 2010.

What are you most proud about the way the series ended?
Ron Moore: I would have to say that I'm probably most proud about the fact that I think we were able to answer most of the questions that we'd raised over the years. And, sort of, to resolve most of the mysteries and the grander questions of the show and at the same time give a resolution to all the character arcs and to wrap it up by the end. And, we don't save everything until... read more

What the Frak? No New Battlestar Until 2009

Battlestar Galactica fans are well-advised to sit back and savor this Friday's midseason finale, because the balance of Season 4 — the series' last, lest we forget — won't be hitting the tube until after "the first of the year," says executive producer Ronald D. Moore. And that's a best-case scenario.At a Wednesday-night screening of this week's episode, Moore explained to TVGuide.com that even though they are currently filming the series' final scenes, the "practical realities" of post-production — coupled with the formidable end-of-year competition presented by new fall series, baseball and football — places the onset of the final episodes at the start of 2009, at the earliest. "Realistically, there's no way to get back on the air faster," he apologetically added.What's your take? Sure to be worth the wait? Or does it sound like a frakkin' eternity? — Matt Mitovich, with reporting by Anna Dimond and Erin FoxRelated:• Battlestar's "The Hub": Burning Q... read more
