Question: Pertaining to all the new sci-fi shows coming up, how's WB's Supernatural? Are there any good shows that are X-files-esque?
Answer: Supernatural had some pretty scary moments, as did ABC's Invasion and NBC's Surface, but ABC's Night Stalker redo created (appropriately enough) by former X-Files exec producer Frank Spotnitz made me crap my khakis. If there's going to be an X-Files successor, this'll probably be it. Speaking of new sci-fi shows, here's a little scoop: CBS has decided to air the premiere of Threshold as a two-hour movie event as opposed to a one-hour episode. My sources tell me the network hopes the move will give the show a chance to stand out amid the glut of new paranormal entries this fall.
