Reminder: Sci-Fi airing final four Threshold episodes tonight

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 27th 2006 4:46PM

ThresholdThe Threshold DVD has been out for a while now. But for casual fans like myself who liked the show but don't really feel like shelling out forty bucks for the DVD set, this is good news. As Bob mentioned here, Sci-Fi has been airing repeats of the first nine episodes and it was supposed to include the final four installments of the series. No dates were set for those at the time though. Now we have them and they're coming... tonight.

The final four Threshold episodes ("The Crossing," "Outbreak," "Vigilante," and series finale "Alienville") will air in a row starting at 8PM tonight on the Sci-Fi channel. Supposedly, the finale is supposed to be completely ridiculous (in a good way), so I'm looking forward to seeing how things turned out for Dr. Molly Caffrey and the rest of her team.

ABC gives green light to Crime Prevention Unit

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2006 9:27AM

ABC logoABC has ordered a pilot from Charmed producer Daniel Cerone and Threshold producer David Heyman called Crime Prevention Unit, based on a British detective series.

The series follows a crack investigative team that solves crimes. So it's like Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Or CSI. Or CSI: Miami. Or CSI: NY. Or The Closer. Or how about Criminal Minds? Maybe with a dash of Numb3rs or Without a Trace mixed in?

Hey, it could be good, but how about a cool, old-fashioned private eye show, like Magnum, P.I. or Spenser: For Hire, huh?

How Threshold would have ended

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 7th 2006 6:49PM
threshold castToo bad for Brent Spiner. CBS canceled Threshold before he got the chance to make out with Catherine Bell. That's just one of many revelations in this TV Guide article by Threshold creator Brannon Braga. Only 8 episodes of Threshold aired before CBS pulled the plug on the sci fi show last season. Fans will get to see all 12 episodes on the DVD, including the finale that Braga admits was thrown together to at least give the audience some closure. In it, Dr. Molly Cafferty (Carla Gugino) dreams about the first alien-human child, who tells her that her plan will work but she will not live to see it.

Other tidbits about how season one of Threshold was supposed to end after the jump.

Sci Fi Channel grabs Enterprise, extends run of Twilight Zone

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 3rd 2006 6:29PM

Scott Bakula, Captain Jonathan Archer of Star Trek:EnterpriseIt looks like the Sci Fi Channel is actually going to run science fiction and fantasy shows in the near future. Shocking! Especially since it has recently dabbled in airing such shows as Law & Order:SVU and, deep breath, Extreme Championship Wrestling (no, I will never get over it!).

The network has recently picked up the rights to Star Trek:Enterprise, the prequel series that took place 150 years before the original. Enterprise aired on UPN from 2001-2005 to mixed reviews. The deal for Enterprise, which will premiere in the fall on the Sci Fi Channel, also included an extension of the network's contract for the original The Twilight Zone episodes.

The deal also includes rights to the Stephen King miniseries The Stand and The Langoliers, as well as a number of science fiction and supernatural shows that never completed their initial network runs. These include Threshold, Wolf Lake, Haunted, and Jake 2.0.

Super Sci-Fi Preview: TV Guide in 60 seconds

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 22nd 2006 12:25PM
  • TV GuideOn the cover: a sci-fi "preview," with covers featuring the original Star Trek, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, and Lost. The Trek preview is about J.J. Abrams big screen movie, but I think it's just another excuse to put the show (and Lost) on the damn cover, and have yet another multi-cover issue.
  • Matt Roush reviews the summer shows Work Out, Life on Mars, Inspector Lewis, Who Wants To Be A Superhero, and Walter Cronkite: Witness To History. He likes them all except one. Can you guess which one?
  • An interview with Brotherhood's Jason Isaacs.
  • In the print edition: a Q & A with Matt Dallas from Kyle XY; a guest column from comic book legend Stan Lee; behind the scenes of the CMA Music Festival; and find out what would have happened if Threshold hadn't been canceled!

Threshold's Carla Gugino already moving on

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 4th 2006 2:10PM
Carla Gugino is moving past the unfortunate cancellation of Threshold, and going back into the movie business. She's currently in negotiations to star opposite Ben Stiller in A Night at the Museum. Stiller plays a goofy security guard who accidentally awakens an old curse that causes everything in the natural history museum to come alive at night. Not sure what character Gugino is up for, but since it's listed as "opposite" of Ben Stiller, I'd guess she's some sort of expert on the relics in the museum. Gugino, of course, is no stranger to film. Her list of credits include Sin City, the Spy Kids series, and Snake Eyes. Television credits include Karen Sisco and Spin City. It's good to see that Gugino is still in demand as an actress, because she is definitely very good. The cancellation of Threshold definitely can't be blamed on her... in fact, I'm not sure exactly what it was about the show that made it a flop. It was a cool premise with good actors, but something just didn't click.
