Format: DVD
"Threshold" reminded me of something Norm from Cheers said in an episode; "It's a dog-eat-dog world and I'm wearing Milkbone underwear". The networks put Milkbone underwear on a lot of their TV shows metaphorically speaking and if they can't get a large audience they get thrown to the dogs. CBS cancelled the show far too soon as the show only aired 8 of its 12 episodes (the pilot was a double length episode). The good news for fans is that when the producers found out the show was being cancelled they were in the middle of shooting the last episode ("Alienville")and this allowed them to rewrite the ending to provide a conclusion (of sorts)to the series.

**Caution some minor spoilers ahead for those who haven't seen the show*** Skip the next three short paragraphs.

For those that haven't seen the show the premise is very powerful allowing for suspense and very effective; an alien probe with 4 or 5 dimensional properties shows up. It's signal effects the crew altering their DNA from our normal double helix rewriting the DNA of the crew into a triple helix. It's an alien invasion done by making US the aliens.

Dr. Molly Caffrey (Carla Gugino best known from "Spy Kids" and "Sin City")created a protocol for first contact including hostile first contact. She assembles a team of top notch scientists in their field including Dr. Nigel Fenwya (Brent Spiner of "Star Trek:The Next Generation"); Lucas Pegg (Robert Patrick Benedict from "Felicity") a brilliant physicists and designer for NASA; Arthur Ramsey (Peter Dinklage "Elf" and from the film "Find Me Guilty")a brilliant mathematician and linguist and covert ops agent Sean Vavennaugh (Brian Van Holt from "S.W.A.T." and "Black Hawk Down"). They form the basis with Assistant Secretary of Defense J.T. Baylock (Charles S.

It's really too bad this show had to be cancelled so soon. It was a simple formula, but it worked very well. The storylines were engaging, the cast was outstanding and every episode had you on the edge of your seat. Not only can you see the episodes that aired during the show's brief run on CBS, but you can also see the ones that never made it to the air on this set. Not to mention that the box art is insanely cool. So pick up these DVDs and discover this awesome show

Well, now that I have written it down, that does look odd, but there were so many series last year where the premise was that aliens were among us, messing with us somehow. And this, the first casualty of the season, was the best of the bunch. Well written, great acting, thoughtful, intelligent, creepy and above all realistic. My first heartbreak of the 05 season was when this show was cancelled

Threshold was one of the most interesting new SF series to emerge in recent times. It had an excellent premise; a mysterious catastrophe occurs which kills most of the crew on a naval ship. Investigators gather some information including video shot of the event, which seems to show a strange multi-dimensional object spinning in space. This object seems to have terrifying effects on the crew, killing some and changing others.

The government agency gathers up a group of outstanding scientists to figure out what happened, and stop the threat. As the series progresses, it seems that the threat is an alien invasion which used the object to 'infect' the men with themselves by transmitting complicated information into their DNA helix. Some of the survivors escape and mingle with the population, apparently with the goal of infecting the entire human race with the ultimate goal to re-create the Earth as a new home for the alien invaders.

The makers of the series cleverly exploit the fear of hidden threats in a post 9/11 world where threats can emerge from nowhere, and from people you never suspected. The situation is made worse by the fact that the 'threats' are 'home-grown' and therefore impossible to detect and stop before they do damage. In a way, the invasion is an updated allegory of the internal threats to our society, real or imagined, from the 'other' who is hidden in our midst yet a clear and present danger.

Sadly, this series was quickly cancelled before it could really take off the ground, and the interesting themes explored in reasonable depth.

As the other earlier reviewers have said this was a great show, cut way to early. Many inferior shows with the same premise, Aliens, made it the entire season. This one should never have been cut, excellent acting, good episodes that could stand on their own. I still hold out slim hope it will be picked up by FX or USA network.

I'm looking forward to picking up the DVD set.

Too bad that this show was cut down in its prime by short-sighted and bottom-line oriented TV executives, and neglected by unimaginative TV viewers. I enjoyed it even more on DVD, and really dug the unaired episodes, especially the final one, "Alienville." This was a program that was adeptly cast, with very good acting, interestingly told (well written), and even decent SFX on a TV budget and schedule. The extra features on disc 4 were pretty cool too, especially the one that covered future plot developments had the show continued. With a noticeable scarcity of good sci fi on TV these days (Stars Trek and Gate both gone or going, etc.), it hurts even more that Threshold was never given the chance it deserved.
