Helix is a perfectly serviceable little Sci-Fi show - I tend to love premises like this for movies - but why in all the heavens does it have elevator music for credits???

Not only doesn`t it fit this show thematically at all, in my entire life I`ve never seen a show that would have benefited from an elevator musical theme. That music is weirder than anything going on in the show.

Because of the creepy little moment at the end, where the music goes completely skewiff and off-key and the blood drips down from the title credits: or they start to melt, I forget. It's the sudden alteration in mood, from cheesy upbeat to slightly sinister. I agree it does jar initially, but it makes sense.

I'm loving the show, much more than initially. The main guy seems a little boring but all the chicks are awesome. Ruthless badass lady scientists, yay!

I get the thought behind it but it just completely takes me out of the atmosphere. Which, granted, it isn`t long. Maybe I just have a deep-seated aversion to elevator!music I just can`t overcome. :D

Felt bad the vet was killed, I really liked her, but you could see it coming early on in the story.

I do comment on the weirdness of the music to the OH every single episode. At this point I think my comments are annoying him more than the music.

I loooved the vet, she was a cutie. Kind of sulking that they offed her, but I suppose it was inevitable since she wasn't a standardized Hot Chick in a White Coat. (I like the other ladies, they're great, but a lot more conventional in their appeal.) Mind you this is SF: she could still come back, even without black goo involvement, you never know.

First time I heard it, I thought it was some weird Syfy commercial cut into the episode or something. I get what they are trying to accomplish, it just weirds me out. *g*
