      That would be 8:00 p.m. tonight on NBC, followed by the season premiere of Medium at 10:00 p.m.

    I think the fact that they’re going Alien style with respect to the “Sea Monsters” (that is, not really showing them) is adding to the suspense. The Marine Biologist’s kid has the potential to become really annoying, really quickly, much like Alex did on E.R., and the conspiracy/cover-up aspect seems a little ham-handed.

    I’ll give it another watch – maybe it’ll become my new Enterprise, almost bad enough to give up on, but with just enough good to keep me around for one more week.

      That’s beautifully put. I agree. Personally, I was more disappointed by Threshold than Surface, though that may be due to expectations. Or possibly, to those two little words we all hate so much, Brannon and Braga.

        Have to join in the agreement here. I guess I’ll go comment on threshold in the threshold thread, but Surface came across to me as a dark cross between The Abyss and ET. I’ll watch it for a couple episodes, but I’m tempted to avoid it just on the principle of trying to discourage “me too” tv shows. OK, so Lost is popular: it’s because it’s intriguing and original. Just because it has a spooky/suspense element doesn’t mean I want to see anything with a generic suspense plot. Come up with something else new and original and if I like it, I’ll watch it too. Surface will stay low on my Tivo priority list…

    ugh…
    Surface was pretty boring. A lot of predictability, nothing to attach me to the characters, nothing really mysterious to bring me back… But that’s what I expected.
