    If you held a gun to my head and asked me to describe each, I'd die. I can't keep them separate at all. Too much time between watching for me. I actually must watch the preview scenes to remember them all. though i just finshed invasion so i know right now which one that gross an episode.

    Well, I still haven't watched any of them but I did just see a promo for Surface while watching Earl or The Office and there was a hot chick with a very nice rack in a skimpy bathing suit. Maybe I'll have to check that one out. ;)

    I have to check out Surface still but I have watched Threshold and Invasion. Can't say that I'm impressed, both shows are rather lackluster...

    Surface looked high budget until the old faithful scene. I've seen better special effects in Doctor Who.

    I think Invasion is officially off the list, will be giving the other two one more chance.

    I just got through episode 2 of Surface and I am watching episode 3. This show is way better than both Threshold or Invasion!

    Surface is my first choice, followed by Threshold. Still watching Invasion though, mainly because of the quality female cast members! :D

    Surface started out looking as if it going to be the best of the three; however the last 2 episodes have been geared to a much younger audience than I am part of.

    Threshold was SP-Xed after I watched the pilot.

    Invasion, on the other hand, started out slow put is picking up more speed with each episode, at this rate it's going to be my clear favorite very soon.

    I gave Threshold and Invasion the ax a couple of weeks ago already. I like surface and was hopeful about Nightstalker and Supernatural, but those hopes are starting to fade.

    And just exactly what is it with all of the alien/creature shows this season?

    I finally got a chance to see "Invasion" and really liked it... mostly because of the cast. Surface has been too boring for me, and Threshold didn't make it to a second viewing. In truth, none of them has much for me. Other than the good cast (IMO) of Invasion... and that's why I'll stick with it for a bit.

    I loved the premiere of "Supernatural" but the subsequent episodes have been about half as good. Still hanging on though.

    "Night Stalker" I'm liking, but not nearly as much as the original.

    "Ghost Whisperer" is hanging by a thread. It needs more interesting ghosts, though I did like the most recent ep alot. And for some reason Jennifer Love-Hewitt isn't as attractive as I remember... for me she hit her peak in "Heartbreakers." But she does a reasonble acting job.

    That's my rundown of the sci-fi/supernatural new shows. :) None of them really must SPs.

    NightStalker might be the best of the bunch now, but I missed the first episode, so I'll need a few weeks to make that decision. I'm still finding Threshold much better than Invasion, and Surface is so bad that I'm really pushing my wife to kill it. We'll see. For now, she's enamored by the "cute little monster". :rolleyes:

    I expected to like Invasion and Threshold the most. Surface is by far the best of the three. Unlike the other two I actually want to know what is going on with Surface. Invasion is on my week-to-week list and is in danger of suffering SP-d (Season Pass deletion) very soon.

    I just got through the first 3 eps of Invasion this weekend and I really liked them! The pacing is nice and even, the cast is great. I like the subtle clues they drop regarding the "EBEs". I don't really understand what there is not to like about it. Three thumbs up from me.

    Threshold I like but admit that it has issues. They really need to do more to add more continuity from ep to ep.

    I have Surface on an SP on my 2nd TiVo. Haven't gotten around to them yet....

    I found "surface" to be underdeveloped and boring. It felt like something you could see on the Disney channel. No real danger, and the whole kid subplot was sappy, in my opinion. I have some friends that watch it, but these are the same people that think "Sahara" is a darned good movie.

    "Threshold" was more interesting, even with some week character relationships. I felt like I was watching the nerds from the "X-Files"("the Lone Gunmen"). They made great characters, but giving them a show of their own didn't work. This show is better, but it revolves so much around the lead almost feels top heavy. I still like it for taking risks and having some genuine scary moments. Basically it feels like that new show "Bones" with alien zombies.

    I find Invasion to be the most interesting of the three. It is allowing the most time to get to know the characters, and the dialogue seems the least forced. That being said, it seems to suffer from "Lost" syndrome, where it wants to drag out what is actually happening. I do admit to feeling let down each week, because I'm not getting more information about what is going on.

    Still, I like "Invasion" because it has a more grounded feel to it. I'm still interested in these characters enough to care what happens with them. Hopefully they can recruit a couple of the writers from "Lost" to help tighten it up.

    None of these shows is as good as "Lost", nor should I expect them to be. With "Lost", I can't wait until the next episode. Although I have "Lost" in my series schedule, it seldom needs to be, since I'm watching it when it airs.

    My wife and I set SP's for all of them. She started out liking Invasion the best and Surface the least. Now, she can't even watch an entire ep. of Invasion but she really likes Surface and Threshold.

    As for me, I'm sort of an instant gratification guy. With Threshold and Surface, we've gotten glimpses and things are progressing. With Invasion, we're on like ep 4 or 5 now and I still know nothing. I'm sick of the Sheriff. If they don't start offering something of substance soon, it's gone. It's disappointing. It had lots of promis, but it seems to me that its all been hype.

    Have to go with Surface myself, followed by Invasion (which is getting better week by week).

    While I still watch Threshold, I am starting to lose interest. It showed great promise the first week, but how many weeks in a row can we watch them try to stop the signal and chase down the infected? Right now it's really no different then Medical Investigation was last year...both looked for causes of "infection", the infected and how to stop it. The only thing keeping me watching is Carla Gugino.

    I originally voted for Invasion, but I have since changed my mind and seem to prefer Surface.

    I've now deleted Threshold from my SP.
