    Threshold wasn't that great.

    Invasion was ok.

    Surface seemed cool.

    I actually like Invasion better than Threshold (now that I've seen 2 episodes of it). I just don't like the cast of Threshold. Surface is a 2nd.

    I guess I'll have to see a couple more shows of each in order to fully decide, but so far I like invasion better.

    Surface, by far. And given all the positive comments here about it, I'm not sure why all the industry reviews were so negative.

    Invasion, although I think it has hope, I fear will be nothing more than a rehash of the X-Files alien conspiracy but 'de-geekified' for viewers who thought they were above watching a 'nerd' show like X-Files 10 years ago.

    After watching last night's Threshold, it's a distant third to the other two.

    I'm curious to see where the premiers fell in the ratings last week.

    According to the industry reviews, I was expecting the best one to be Threshold with Surface in the last place. (probably that why I watched the pilot of surface until last night), but I gotta say that I am not a big fan of threshold anymore.

    I have all three saved on my TiVo but haven't watched any yet. Reviews made it sound like Threshold and Invasion would be good, while Surface would be a distant third. However, the comments here sound like people liked Surface more than the others. This could simply be a function of expectations. People weren't expecting much from Surface and were pleasantly surprised while they expected a lot from the other two and they didn't quite live up to those expectations.

    I expected all to be utter garbage. I really wasn't disappointed; though Surface seems to have the least encrusted crud and mold growing all over it and appears to have the best chance of finding the showers and actually taking one before the season is too far along.

    I can't stand Surface. Way too much overacting and a boring plotline (so far). I totally agree with the TV Guide critics. I guess I'd keep Threshold though I'll be watching Invasion a bit more to see if it gets better.

    It looks to me like Surface has the best budget, given all the oceanic equipment.

    Like devdogaz, I still have all three on the dvr. Friends have told me that they liked Threshold and Surface, but not Invasion.

    I think I will watch Threshold tonight. If I like it, I will watch the second episode as well.

    I have now watched all three. I don't think there is a clear winner for me at this point. Although keeping tracking of whats going on in three shows plus lost may prove to be a bit much at this point. If I had to assign order highest to low it would be Threshold, Surface, Invasion. I am watching the second episode of threshold now, so I'll see how it goes, but I can't imagine that all three will last all season.

    I've seen the first 2 episodes of Invasion and Surface...neither was all that great, IMO. I thought the story line on Invasion was a bit better, and the monsters in Surface looked pretty crappy, IMO. Invasion is definitely trying to bank on the whole 'What is REALLY going on here?' theme, going after the 'Lost' audience. I'll keep recording both of them, and watch them if I have time. Not the strongest hours of tv, but mildly entertaining, at times. Haven't seen Threshold, so no comment.

    Threshold seems like its going to be a zombie of the week type show, Surface and Invasion definetly look like they are going on the suspense aspect that made Lost work.

    How about Night Stalker? I haven't seen it, but used to enjoy staying up late to watch the original when I was a kid...

    I finally watched the first two episodes of Threshold and Surface. I never got around to watching Invasion.

    I voted NONE.

    Just caught up with Threshold, while the last episode seemed better, the dialouge is just too much, the closing line "Don't worry we have a plan" was ridiculous. I may have to reorder my ratings from above.

    Well at least with surface it seems the guys in charge know how to get s**t done.

    On the other 2 shows you know that if these are the folks in charge we are on the losing team. Say hello to the new overlords
