When I was a kid I watched the Disney "Treasure Island" every time it was on TV - Ahoy, ye mateys! I'd scream all over the house - so I was more than excited to see Syfy's "darker," updated version of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic.

You'll likely lose interest any way; there is a reason Syfy is airing the entire mini-series in one Saturday night.

A new trailer for Syfy's upcoming thriller "Helix" shows the team of scientists who could save the world assembling in the Arctic. "What's it doing to him," Billy Campbell's Dr. Alan Farragut asks as he and others look over a victim. "It's changing him," another scientest answers. "Into what?" Into ... something ... really ... nasty. A virus is changing people into zombies, aliens or some other kind of supercharged killers. "Helix" could be something we've seen before, but it comes from "Battlestar Galactica" creator Ron Moore so I have to say...

It's election night Tuesday, so you're not going to find a whole lot of new programming on TV other than election coverage. But just like when you vote, you have choices. And if you live in Chicago, you have three city-related choices. "Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S. " on BBC America has a new episode called "Pizza to Go" that was filmed in Springfield and Chicago. The teams begin tonight's challenge in the state capital where they cook pizza in mobile, wood-burning ovens. They end the challenge in Chicago.

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are reuniting for "Sharknado 2: The Second One. " RedEye offers its suggestions for the movie's fish bait, or the actors in cameo roles.

WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, playing the only meteorologist who forecasts a Sharknado, but no one believes him. Scarlett Johansson, as the voice of Sharkmantha, the talking shark.
