Entourage: The Resurrection

Eric and Vince

(S03E18) "Don't tell me you whack off to The Warriors..." -Ari

One of the things that's impressed me about this second half of Entourage's third season, is the way the show has grown. It's evolved into something much more than just a comedy program full of fart and boob jokes. Even the episodes that aren't loaded with the funny can still be excellent and this installment was no exception. To see where our four main characters were once at and where they've ended up is just very cool to watch. Drama's personal growth has been something of a hardship (that's putting it lightly) and to see him finally achieve success is immensely rewarding for a viewer.

Entourage: Return of the King

Turtle, Eric, and Drama

(S03E17) "Sorry E, the Manneschevitz does not flow until sundown!" -Ari

Well that was a long time coming. Amanda is out and Ari is back in. I have to be honest though. I wasn't too enthralled with this episode only because I had a pretty good feeling as to how it was going to end. I mean, of course Medellín was going to fall through and of course Amanda was going to get blamed. Was there any other logical way for her to make an exit short of giving Vince some sort of rash? I kid about that, but I suppose you have to wonder. She was so quick to hop in the sack with Vince... how many other clients has she "gotten to know?" It doesn't really matter though because Ari is back and he seems more determined than ever.

Entourage: Gotcha!

Vince

(S03E16) "So why don't you and your hoopty just move along." - Drama

Johnny (or should I say John Chase?) seems to be consistently getting every funny line Entourage offers lately, and much like Vince feels about Amanda, I sort of like it. Speaking of Amanda, my suspicions were confirmed. She's smitten over her client and while Vince says he feels the same way, I get the impression that Amanda is far more head over heels than Vince is. We've seen Vince get that way with Mandy Moore. He's not even close to that level. She's falling for him, he's still on a high from the single(?) night of sex, and the best part is that their little tryst was only one part of this great episode.

Entourage: Manic Monday

Carla Gugino as Amanda on 'Entourage.'

(S03E15) "I'd buy diseased fish from her." - Drama
I second that, not just because Amanda is smoking hot, but because this is the Entourage I remember. This was an extremely solid episode and quite possibly the best one we've gotten from season three. The only one I can recall liking as much was "Vegas Baby, Vegas," and that one was good partly due to it not having any real ties to the rest of the season. It sat by itself. This episode sticks right to the story line we've been running with and that makes it all that much better in my book.

Entourage: Dog Day Afternoon

Vince

(S03E14) "We may be whores at my agency, but we ain't pimps." -Ari
This wasn't exactly the best Entourage episode, especially after how much I enjoyed last week's mid-season premiere. However, I still really liked this one a lot for some different reasons. The whole "break-up" between Vince and Ari has really done wonders for the show and while it was a little rough this week, I really like the direction it's headed. If you think about it, the entire series to date has been about the client/agent relationship between Vince and Ari. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this may have been the first episode where the two of them didn't talk even once.

Entourage: Less Than 30 (mid-season premiere)

Ari and Amanda

(S03E13) "This town's not safe for a bitch."
It certainly isn't. What we have here is a good thing. Something you don't often see on television. Usually after a mediocre run of episodes, you expect a show to keep heading in the same direction. No matter how much you may love it, you expect the same mediocrity. Entourage has gone ahead and blown away all my expectations. This show feels new again. The way it did when it first premiered. Suddenly, there's this extremely serious tone and to top it off? It's just as funny as it ever was.

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.

Did Threshold have a final episode?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 12th 2006 6:39PM
Threshold castI'm reading this review of the Threshold DVD set in the New York Times (yes, The New York Times - glad to see they actually have a review of the set), and while I knew that the set includes the final four episodes that weren't shown on CBS last year, I didn't realize that the creators found out about the cancellation before the final episode was filmed and actually had a little time to put a little closure on the show.

The paper describes the finale as "slapstick comedy," and an episode that will remind viewers of Three Men and a Baby, Rosemary's Baby, and Night of the Living Dead.

Wow, with that description, I might have to get this set after all. Though the Sci-Fi Channel is currently showing repeats of the series (including a mini marathon tomorrow night at 8) and the run will include the final four episodes.

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.

Threshold coming to DVD in July

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 5th 2006 6:09PM
ThresholdYup, it's true. The short-lived CBS series is coming to DVD this summer, confirming the rumors that we talked about here shortly after the show was canceled.

The entire series will be released in one set. No word yet on extras or whether or not they'll include episodes that were filmed and never aired, though I assume there will be both.

Now ABC: what about Eyes?

Threshold coming to DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 14th 2006 11:46AM

ThresholdTVShowsOnDVD.com is reporting that the recently canceled CBS sci-fi show Threshold is coming to DVD, maybe even quicker than anyone thought.

Threshold - constantly overlooked in favor of Invasion but usually liked by those who gave it a chance - was canceled by CBS after 9 episodes. There were 13 episodes produced (and a 14th ep in the planning), so it will be good to see those unaired episodes in the DVD set as well. 

Now let's hope they do the same thing with Eyes and Suface

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.

What if Threshold wasn't canceled?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 19th 2005 4:26PM

ThresholdThreshold producer Brannon Braga gave an interview to If magazine before the show was canceled, and he revealed some spoilers. Of course, now that the show is gone, these aren't spoilers as much as they're "oh, so that's what would have happened" revelations. Including:

  • Lucas' fiancee would have been a recurring character on the show, and would have butted heads with Molly when Lucas started to be affected by the alien video he watched.
  • Gunnison would have returned.
  • The ship at the bottom of the ocean would cause trouble for the team and the world.
  • Catherine Bell's character would have been an expert in genetic engineering, brought in to help with food contamination.
  • The aliens get together and try to break out of their prison.
