Show Summary

Molly Anne Caffrey (Carla Gugino) is a government contingency agent whose job is to create response plans for any possible worse-case scenario. One of her plans - THRESHOLD - is enacted by J.T. Baylock when the U.S. Navy realizes an "extra terrestrial craft" has landed in the mid-Atlantic ocean. Caffrey must hand-select a team of scientists - consisting of Dr. Nigel Fenway (Brent Spiner) - a NASA microbiologist, Lucas Pegg (Rob Benedict) - a neurotic physicist, Arthur Ramsey (Peter Dinklage) - an expert linguist and mathematician, and Sean Cavennaugh (Brian Van Holt) - a highly trained covert operative with a puzzling past. Threshold stems from the minds of producers David Heyman, David Goyer, and Brannon Braga.

  • Such Potential

    9.0
    This show really should have had a second season. It had a great premise which had potential to go anywhere. The acting was excellent with like of Brent Spinner.

    Shame lost opportunity.
  • A good SCI-FI Series which worth to see it.

    I just saw 4 episodes so far and I think it's a good replacement for INVASION, but maybe this series will continue and will be not cancelled like INVASION.

    Anyway! I don' know if the company who produced this serie will continue this series or not, but they lose because many of my friends watch this series and they find it very good.

    And the actors who act on this are pretty good actors who have some good movies on theirs resume, so for that I think you can spare 1 our on week to see what happeen.

    So! if you are a fan of this kind of series, you'l find these series very atractive.

  • Definitely my favorite new show. Molly is pretty freaking awesome. She's got a solution for everything, is quick on her toes, and isn't a wuss. And there's suspense throughout each episode. Very nice show. Now it just needs better ratings.moreless

    Well I don't really see anything negative about this show other than that the midget is annoying with his sex comments and the old doctor guy is a bit dull. Molly is a wonderful lead character. She's doing a great job handling the alien threat. And the threat on Threshold seems much more intense and interesting...as opposed to the retarded attemt Surface makes and the not-too-hot Invasion take on floating/swimming oversized Christmas tree lights, a.k.a. the aliens. Anyway, back to Threshold...I love how they slowly figure out information about the aliens and alien signal. But the whole time, they are in mortal danger and are still at a serious disadvantage. I like how the government takes DRASTIC steps to make sure that the general public is unaware of the alien situation. The show seems very well written to me, well-rounded with a continuous flow. Each week after I watch I'm left wanting more. That's the way a TV show should be.moreless
  • I think the show deserves its fate. Poor dialogue, poor acting, hilarious screenplay. Full of clichez, unimaginative at all.

    I think the show deserves its fate. Poor dialogue, poor acting, hilarious screenplay. Full of clichez, unimaginative at all.

    I sometimes wonder why TV stations consider starting such failures and suddenly discontinue great shows like Firefly. I won't miss Threshold - at all. There's Battlestar Galactica or Invasion. And despite the other reviews here, Threshold doesn't even remotely remind of X-Files - pardon me.
  • Shorted by the ratings?

    8.0
    There is joy and there is sadeness. The joy is that this series is pretty intense from the get go. It has a flawed team, it has challenges and in the end it has only one season to show.



    I cannot say why, however in the end, it all feels like people getting out because of ratings.



    These producers always forget the story of star trek. cancelled after three seasons because of ratings. It because the most succesful sci-fi serie, running in syndication for decades. good gravyu train i say.



    Threshold could have gone likewise. it has the drive, the writing, the acting and the setting. It feels like such a shame, because Threshold was already good in season 1, it could have been great in season 2. Alas.moreless
  • THIS WEEK'S ROUNDUP OFFERS ANOTHER BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING EXPERIENCES. THERE ARE SOME OLD-SCHOOL '80S SATURDAY-MORNING CARTOONS LIKE BLACKSTAR AND THE SPACE SENTINELS AT ONE END OF THE SPECTRUM AND THE FORMIDABLE STAR POWER OF THE PERIOD MINISERIES ELIZABETH I AT THE OTHER. OUR NEWLYWED AUDIENCE AND THOSE FALLING INTO THE SOON-TO-BE CATEGORY MAY APPRECIATE THE COMEDY BEHIND THE WORST WEEK OF MY LIFE. WHILE INVASION, VERONICA MARS, AND THRESHOLD GIVE AN OTHERWORLDLY SPIN TO THE REST OF THIS WEEK'S ROUNDUP.

    August 22, 2006 DVD Releases
