  • Great episode.

    When three women from different walks of life show signs of strange behavior, the threshold team investigates the three women for possible symptoms of the alien infection. Molly and the Red Team takes a visit from each one of the infected, one dies, one is taken into custody, the other becomes a big problem. The Threshold program gets a new liaison official from the senate and proves to be an asset for Molly and the program. The Red Team investigates how the 3 women got infected without knowing each other personally. This episode gets really interesting when the Red Team chases one of the infected lady all the way to Mexico. It's a great episode.moreless
  • A Great Show. Bring it Back!

    9.0
    I just can't believe this show is cancelled. It did well in the first time slot. The new time slot didn't work. Give it a chance, guys. What a great show this is, a smart alien show, not the usual soap opera tripe. I surely hope some other more progressive network picks this up. Who makes these stupid decisions to cancel great shows?????
  • Good but not that great

    The show is getting better and better.

    But I wished CBS hadn't yanked it just yet.

    Because it was showing a different side of Cavennaugh.

    Not the macho type and sometimes arrogant side that he has been portrayed.

    As it showed probably his girlfriend in bed with him.

    At least we know now that he has a girlfriend.

    As he is the most private meber in the group.
  • Three women get infectd with the virus because on of the orginal survivors from the Big Horn made sperm donations at a sperm bank

    5.6
    The episode begins with Cavennaugh dreaming of dancing with a beautiful woman in the trees of glass, then she turns to strangle him. He tells Molly of his dream, and she is unable to make anything of it until the same woman, Christine Polchek, who is the wife of one of the President's closets friends begin showing the alien syptoms.



    The story further develops when two more women get infected with the virus, and their outbreak all seem to happen at relatively the same time. We learn that they were inseminated at a local sperm bank, a bank which one of the original Big Horn crew is a donor.



    The team is able to subdue Christine who has taken Cavennaugh prisoner when he tried to capture her.



    Overall, a lack luster episode, no wonder the show was cancelled.moreless
  • Adios

    8.5
    You knew the schedule change was a sign of doom but man, that was quick.



    Although I didn't like the fact that early on two episodes seemed to use the same plot, the series has developed and I think it could have lasted longer than Surface, Invasion or Lost simply because each episode could be self-contained and they weren't painting themselves into such a corner like Lost is.



    To those nuckleheads TV executives who deep sixed the show - keep peddling your crime/murder/reality crap and wonder why society lacks imagination and is so violent. You're part of the problem.moreless
