The Omega File

Been awhile since I fully invested myself into a sci-fi television series. If it’s not The Walking Dead, American Horror Story or select episodes of Hemlock Grove, I can’t seem to make my attention span stick, even during binge watching. I blame Lost (2004 – 2010) for this. (All those years and a pay-off that was as weak as a penny slot machine.)

So now comes The Omega File, complete with cool looking creatures and a snake woman. (They probably already gave her a name, but I’ll just call her Melisssssa. Heh.)

The Omega File

Here is a snapshot of what we can expect when this project arrives in every format known to man, and probably even Netscape 3: “Solomon Archer, the leader of The Alliance, has been captured. He will be freed by his lover, a Snake Woman. Together with the help of Rocky and another teammate they will try to destroy The Order, the evil that is ruling planet earth.”

The Omega File

You got your hero, his love interest, a BFF made out of rock, the good guys and the bad guys, as well as a heaping helping of EVIL. I ask you, what good is anything without evil?

Hopefully, The Omega File comes out in the future year of 2015. I’ll cryogenically freeze myself to await its debut.

Helix: Disease TV

Helix

I’m often wary of made-for-TV horror and sci-fi as they water it down so much as to be a non-alcoholic beverage. Then along comes brutally brilliant stuff like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story to set things right for TV again.

So it is with these same high hopes I wish for Helix, an intensely gripping sci-fi series about disease-gone-wild, premiering on the improving SyFy™ Channel in January, 2014. If you haven’t seen the trailers, feast your face on this: “Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation…or total annihilation.”

Total annihilation. Those two words go together like “cold” and “beer.”

Helix

What gives me excitement pee shivers is that Steven Madea is on board as Helix’s co-executive producer. You may have seen his credit on Lost, CSI: Miami, and The X-Files.

All things being equal, Helix is a contemporary spin on 1971’s Andromeda Strain, which I deftly reviewed and posted on January, 9, 2013. As I recall, the seas were rough that day. I had finished the first of what was to be an entire half rack of Budweiser. Sharing was not an option.
