Not a bad little sci-fi show, bit shaky round the edges but as the stories have been unfolding we slowly get to know the characters abit better. The only thing i would suggest is let it run its course and just cos it doesnt get as many viewers as lets say 90210 doesnt make it a crap program. I mean look what they did to Firefly and that was a good series. Read more

3x9: Vigilante recap: Helen Magnus was dying, her blood cells being attacked by a virus. Her unwelcome guest, Adam, had the keystone to the hologram city, which he used to open to find the map to hollow earth. The gateway was determined to be somewhere in Northern Mongolia and the exact coordinates were pinned down and fixed. John, Helen's long time friend, convinced her to allow him to go with her to Mongolia and there they fell into a deep depression in the earth. There they found a standing stone which looked as if it could be opened, but no luck. They traveled back to the lab and talked about it, deciding to warp to a renowned museum in London where they found a curator qhizzing about on a wheeled ladder. They asked him for help, only telling him what they thought he needed to know. He asked them to wait as he rummaged round some artifacts, coming up with a very strange looking device he claimed was a key to the hollow earth. Thanking him, they warped back to Northern Mongolia only to fail once more. Angry now, they returned to the museum and demanded he locate the right and proper key, which he did, very grudgingly. He told them that he duplicated antique devices such as the key they held in their hands and sold them to the highest bidder. He said that they would be surprised at the large number of avid rich history buffs out there who would pay truly exorbitant prices for such things. He turned about to tell them goodbye but found only empty space where they had stood... read more.

3x7: Breach recap: The show began with Helen Magnus running in fear from a man like creature on a roof top, then she ran at it and took it with her off the roof in a terrifying punge... read more.

3x6: Animus recap: Kate is teasing Helen about being at Normandy. Helen ignores her and
asks if she has the weapons inventory Helen requested a week ago: Does
she have it? Kate says yes. Rather, she says she's on it. She further
amends that she knows she asked for the job, and she will get it done.
Helen responds that Henry can do it if Kate is too busy. As she walks
away, Henry tells Kate he won the bet, and she needs to pay up. Helen
didn't walk far. She reprimands them for going through her personal
belongings. Kate apologizes and asks again. Helen says "to be honest -"
and she is cut off by a beeping that they all rush over to. Henry gets
there first. It's an environmental breach, level 4. Helen barks orders
to evacuate immediately... read more.

3x5: Hero II: Broken Arrow recap: Will thinks breakfast may not be the best time for salted cod, but
Bigfoot begs to differ. He thinks Will needs to expand his horizons. The
conversation is cut short when Bigfoot hears something in the catacombs.
An old machine is operating independently. Will asks what it is, and
Bigfoot tells him they should show the boss. They bring it to Helen. she
says it's been a very long time since she's seen such a thing. It's an
auto-type, one of only five that were created. She convinced the
inventor to give it to The Office of Strategic Services. Without it,
the war could have ended very differently. Will had heard rumors about
it, but did not believe it was real. Helen says that it transmits and
receives a fluctuating electro-magnetic frequency that can't be
intercepted. This machine is the only survivor. But if that's the
case, who is it communicating with? Helen tells will the messages
coming from the one man who knew of its existence, the inventor of the
device itself. The paper Helen had inserted comes out, spelling "SOS".
They've received a distress call from NiKola Tesla... read more.

3x4: Trail Of Blood recap: Will, Kate and Helen Magnus, the investigative team, stood waiting outside a small town bank. When the bank door was opened by George, a bald male bank clerk, Helen asked to open a bank safe deposit box whilst Will and Kate milled about the lobby, trying to look busy. Led downstairs by a female clerk, then left alone, Helen managed to open, with Henry Magnus' remote help via cell phone, a certain box there. It proved to be empty of the object Helen and the team were searching for, but it contained bits of broken egg shell and clear slime. A hole made in the bottom of the metal box led to a hole in the wall, slime making a trail across the floor and wall. Helen told Henry that "it" was missing and that she was afraid for the people in the bank... read more.
