Of all the TV shows that have been cancelled too soon in the last couple of decades, Surface (2005) was one that I wished had got a second season to wrap things up. Created by Josh and Jonas Pate, this series explores the mysteries of the ocean and its inhabitants.
Surface is a science fiction TV series that premiered on NBC in September 2005. It was a 15-episode series with a strong cast that included Lake Bell as Dr Laura Daughtery, Jay R. Ferguson as Rich Connelly, and Carter Jenkins as Miles Barnett.
Surface follows the lives of three characters brought together by their encounters with mysterious marine life. Dr Laura Daughtery is a marine biologist who discovers a new species of sea creature while on a research expedition. She becomes obsessed with the creature and its origins, leading her to investigate further. Rich Connelly is a fisherman who accidentally catches one of these sea animals and becomes involved in the mystery surrounding their existence. Miles Barnett is a young boy who discovers one of these creatures washed up on the beach near his home and keeps it as a pet.
As the series progresses, the characters become more involved in the mystery surrounding the sea creatures. They discover that the marine animals are part of a larger ecosystem that has been hidden beneath the ocean’s surface for centuries. The creatures are mysterious and dangerous, and the characters must work together to uncover the truth and protect humanity from their threat.
Why was Surface cancelled?
Despite a strong cast and interesting plot, Surface was cancelled after just one season. The series was cut short due to low ratings, which is often the case for shows that fail to capture a large enough audience. The show was also expensive to produce, which may have contributed to its cancellation.
I and many fans of Surface were disappointed by the show’s cancellation. I had become invested in the characters and the mystery surrounding the sea creatures, and was eager to see where the story would go.
Surface 2005 was a unique addition to the sci-fi genre, as it explored the mysteries of the ocean and its inhabitants. The show created a sense of wonder and danger that was captivating. While it may not have had the same impact as other sci-fi series, such as The X-Files or Lost, Surface did help to expand the genre and introduce new ideas and concepts.
If you are a sci-fi fan or just looking for a unique and interesting show to watch, I highly recommend giving Surface a chance.
