"Threshold" Available Online

gugino.jpgEntertainment Weekly is reporting that CBS is now streaming episodes of its freshman sci-fi series "Threshold."

Apparently the first three episodes were only available for three days, and then each week's episode will be online for about two days. I checked it out and couldn't see squat. Maybe I missed the window or my Web connection isn't cooperating. Just goes to prove my point: Wouldn't TiVo be a more convenient and clearer-looking answer?

It doesn't have ads and it is free, so I can't complain too much. However, it would be a lot cooler if they archived the episodes, although that would probably squash the possibilities of future DVD sales.

They are hoping the service will rope in new viewers as well as give the existing fan base a chance to catch up each week. "The show is particularly well-suited for this type of promotion," says Chris Ender, senior VP of CBS' Communications Group. "The Internet audience loves to debate the paranormal and unravel mysteries, so this content fits perfectly with this platform." Is he just saying they are a bunch of nerds?

"Threshold" follows a group of experts drawn together after the Navy discovers E.T. has landed in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. It stars Carla Gugino ("Spy Kids," "Sin City"), Peter Dinklage ("Elf," "The Station Agent") and Charles S. Dutton ("Roc"). It airs Fridays at 9:00 p.m. (EST) on CBS. -- Rachel Cericola
