Helix is a science fiction thriller television show that aired on Syfy from 2014 to 2015. Created by Cameron Porsandeh, the show follows a team of scientists who are dispatched to the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak. Starring Billy Campbell, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kyra Zagorsky, and Mark Ghanimé, the show explores the consequences of playing with genetic engineering and the horrors that can ensue if it goes wrong.

The team of scientists is led by Dr. Alan Farragut, played by Billy Campbell. Upon arriving at the Arctic research facility, he discovers that his estranged brother Peter, also a scientist, is already there. The team soon realizes that the virus is spreading rapidly, and they are running out of time to find a cure. The stakes are high because this virus could potentially wipe out humanity. The team also uncovers a sinister plan behind the outbreak, which unravels throughout the show.

The show is fast-paced and suspenseful as the team faces many obstacles in their way to find the cure. They must navigate treacherous Arctic conditions, decaying infrastructure, and a group of infected individuals who will stop at nothing to ensure the virus continues to spread. The infected individuals are also mutating at an alarming rate, which leads to some terrifying and grotesque scenes that will stay with you long after the show has ended.

The show also explores the theme of morality and the consequences of playing God. The Arctic research facility's company, Ilaria Corporation, is a powerful organization that has been working on genetic engineering, designing a new species that can live in extreme conditions. However, the cost of these ambitions is a potential global outbreak that could wipe out humanity. The show portrays Ilaria Corporation as a morally bankrupt organization that values profits over human lives.

The cast of Helix is excellent, with Billy Campbell and Hiroyuki Sanada delivering fantastic performances as the show's antagonistic brothers. Kyra Zagorsky also gives an outstanding performance as Dr. Julia Walker, a microbiologist on the team who must balance her scientific objectives with her personal motivations. Mark Ghanimé plays Major Sergio Balleseros, a military contractor who is loyal to Ilaria Corporation but starts to question his loyalty as the outbreak worsens.

Overall, Helix is a thought-provoking, thrilling, and engaging show that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The show deals with complex themes and morality issues while keeping the action and suspense high. The show was canceled after two seasons, but it's well worth watching for any fan of the sci-fi genre.

Helix is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on January 10, 2014.
