Was a decent watch, not the best of series, clearly low budget, but something compelling about it.
channel 5 is canceling a lot of stuff, they even cancelled the walking dead, so chances are they are just skint.
but Helix is a good show in the way it works, I wouldn't say it is a low budget show, but they do try to stick to the secrets and lies and keep things close in on the story. but it is another slow burner things are ramping up more and more, especially after the ilaria corporation shows up (believe the helicopters who up at the end of the last one on channel 5) as it changes a lot of the dynamics between people.
so I don't think the show is particularly low budget, just that the show is better served by the small set pieces then the larger pieces as cliffhangers and to move the story forward.
but as I've said before there is a site called publichd if you don't mind downloading you can get pretty much any american show there a couple of hours after it's on in the states, if you have decent internet it saves waiting for the show to come on over here.
