Ok I just finished watching yet another of a great series of television shows that got canceled. Quality television is being destroyed by the new crap list of reality show filth that is polluting out televisions.
The show that has gotten me so outraged again was the 2006 cancellation of Surface after 15 episodes and a cliff hanger ending that left us fans begging for more. I feel like screaming at the executives of NBC and wring their necks until they at least finish the series off. I have watched this series 3 times now and each time I have trouble conceiving what pencil pushing MORON made the decision to not continue the show. This series had quality acting, a GREAT story, intellectual stimulating content, phenomenal characters and even a lovable CG seas monster named “NIM(rod)” the show had it all. So why did it get canceled after only one season?
The answer is simple the onslaught of the reality crap such as Americas Next Top Model, Bachelor, Big Brother giving people a glimmer of hope that they too could be on television disgusts me to know end. Have we become such a pathetic and brainless group of television viewers that we can’t even enjoy a plot based story any more. We are reduced to escaping our dreary lives by living through the filth blatantly scripted so called reality TV.
I for one HATE “reality” television shows I miss the good old days of TV in the 80’s when we had shows that we could enjoy even though we know that they could never happen. Lately there have been so many great shows that have been canceled after only 1 or two seasons that I am losing all faith in television. Threshold, Special Unit 2, Surface, Traveler, Drive and many other shows that never got a chance because the majority of the population that make up the rating are two busy dreaming about being the next no talent singer on “American Idol”.
I have also made an open offer to donate MY and MY companies time to help with production of Surface Season 2 if need be to help get this show back on the air. I am capable of putting together CG animation and Editing/Compositing Teams to complete post production for the show if the filming of episodes was completed and raw tapes handed over to us. Well that is my rant about television if you want to help try and get Surface back on the air visit these sites to help drive traffic and signatures into the hand of the people that can make it happen.
Season 2 or a TV-movie to finish it off, Defo. Down with unrealistic reality tv!
Just like with Firefly they could cap it off with a movie so the fans are not left hanging wondering what happens to all the characters we followed through the first season.
season 2 plzzzz
gogogo surface tv series…..
one of the best series ever made! I will do what I can to get a conclusion
Even here in the netherlands Surface was on TV… and yes I thought it was a good show.
It attracted my attention, and the times I had to miss out an episode due to work, I realized, darn this is a good series… and I enjoyed it very much
And yes, the fact we are over stimulated with reality shows is asweel creating a tv dessert here…
It is a pitty tha there is no season 2 and 3 etc…
One golden oldie of a series I liked: “Hill street Blues”
It is for me stil one of the best series
I purchased the first season of Surface as soon as it was available. I really enjoyed the series among all the other intelligent series that were cut short by the network morons. My daughter had never seen the series. She has been one of my recent converts to Sci-fi type shows. So last Saturday we had a surface marathon and watched all 15 episodes back to back. She loved it and was astonished that the series had been cancelled after only one season. We both have had conversations about the dumbing down of TV for the cheap to produce reallity shows. I HATE REALITY SHOWS. Right now I am watching Moonlight on the Sci-fi channel. Another show that was cut short too soon.
i miss the tv show surface i have watched the series tons of times and it seems you always miss a spec of detail everytime
it seems like everything i get into watching they cancel the list go s on
luved dark angel what did they do cancel it . then got into tru calling any what a surprise then surface i now some of the acting was bad but the story was great got the dvd when it come out then i was getting into bionic woman . tv sucks .i hope they stop putting all that crap on dont think i watch tv at all now.
please bring this show back. it was great. it had so much potential and wasnt given a chance. plus us die hard Surface fans were totally left hanging. We deserve more consideration than that! Team Nimrod all the way!
i loved surface and want more this is crap
No kidding Surface rocked and they should really continue it I don’t even say just finish the series off I say they should make sevreal more seasons at least
I’m so desperate to see the season 2 of surface.
The first one was just too good, so i can guess how the second one gonna be?
I wonder how many time i’ve watched the first volume.
Please send the second reel soon???
have to have all 4 of the acters in it
Really interesting show, with a really interesting story. A TV-movie would be great to finish it off. The sea monsters and the idea behind them was both original and intense!
The show was really cool, it’s a shame they cancelled it. A movie would be great. I really liked the way the story alternated between the characters, the mystery’s that could hide in the sea and the references to human genetics experiments. One day I believe we will come to the point as to create completely new species.
SURFACE is a really great show ! I just loved it.
It is definitelly worthy to continue it and make a second season or even a third !
Just found the series on Netflix on Watch it now. Great show. I am hoping for a Finale of some sort or a new season!
I don’t know how they could continue the series this many years later, but I wish there was SOME resolution. A graphic novel maybe…
I’ve watched this show twice and I really want a conclusion!!
i believe that surface is the best t.v Series that has ever been aired, and i want more! it is such a pity that they felt that this series was not worth their effort and cancelled it, because i would donate any amount of money to make at least 2 more series… i am one of the biggest fans of this show i watched it as soon as it came on tv and did not stop watching it.
if you feel as i do please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org thank you for your support.
i fully agree with your comment, too bad NBC did not agree… i wish they would bring surface back for at least two or three more seasons.
i fully agree with your comment sandor, too bad NBC did not agree… i wish they would bring surface back for at least two or three more seasons.
as a writer my skills are exceptional, i will be attempting to type a second series of surface and could use some ideas please email me at the e-mail address listed above. thank you for your help
im only on ep 13 but i still think they should make more and miles is cute
It is sad when all that TV programming becomes about $$$$ really sad.
I just finished watching the whole season not realizing how long its been since it was aired. Can not believe it did not continue, and the fact that I was stuck on a show that they did not at least leave a conclusion and for those that were really interested in. That shows how much NBC actually cares for there consumers.
im in norway and they did not send this show here. like many other great shows. i HATE realety shows……. and STOPP canceled the one we love
Surface will never return to tv, and here’s why. The majority of the tv watching public are fucking RETARDED. They eat up those gay so called reallity shows. Therefore the networks see this and realize they can produce a shitty reallity show for far less than a show like Surface make a shit pile more money.
Do I want to see the series continue? FUCK YEAH!! Will it continue? Not bloody likely. There’s a better chance of finding life on Mars than there is an awsome show like Surface returning to TV.
is it possible the show was cancelled because they were hitting too near the truth? i have a brother who was in the air force, and worked with scientist under a mountain, and you don’t even want to know what they were doing!!
I hate reality tv mtv,talk shows,anything reality I would pay any price for surface to come back again I may 11 but I loved surface now I want to be a marine biogelst when I grow up reality tv is why they canselled this show at least make an episode after are big cliff hanger I feel like I might not get rescued so we don’t want surface ….WE NEED SURFACE who cares about american idol and jersoy shore and vanderap rules there was no other show like surface that is the only show I’ll watch and just think they ruined a 11 year olds enoyment from the telivison I love surface it will always be my favorite show so just think about it NCB don’t do it for yourself do it for the kids plz plz plz plz plz plz
We need to make a stand and let the networks know how we feel. If more watcher posted each day maybe they will get the picture.d So ask your friends to post more. Many times if they have to. Most of the folks I talk to also heat reality TV so who watches anyway.
I just watched Surface for the first time on netflix I am letting everyone I know how good it is and have them post there thoughts on this. Did everyone forget about Surface????? Its 2013 now so lets start posting.
NO MORE REALITY MORE SURFACE!!!!!!
PS I watched first season while I was getting kemo for my cancer.
I hope your memo worked and the NBC morons got your cancer
Surface, Terra Nova, Invasion Earth are excellent series that got cancelled with no endings. Those and others are the reason I don’t even want to start watching a new series anymore. Television is 75% reality shows now that I wouldn’t be caught dead watching. Unfortunately to many love them, or they would be cancelled also. As for Surface, I have watched the complete season 3 or 4 times already and I am sure I will watch again, mainly for the reason being that I would rather watch repeats of excellent shows than the garbage that’s mostly on now!
Sitting here hoping for the day when reality ratings drop to 0 and we can go back to enjoying our television movies/series again.
This was/is one hell of a GREAT series that someone somehow has to BRING IT BACK in one form or another (I.e. Season 2 or Mini-Series or Movie) to do it and the viewers justice!! It is/was one of those rare shows that had it all, and that’s very rare! Come on, do US ALL a great favor and do something to at the very least to give it a proper ending, if the money isn’t there to pay for a final season! Reality TV is for TURD heads and deserve to have their brains Cuisinarted for watching them! Their very act of watching reality TV skews the ratings in a seriously FALSE way! They in no way represent those of us who are actually sentient! Someone needs to send out the hit squads to eliminate every last one of them so that seriously top quality TV has a chance once again! If someone supplies the bullits, I’ll supply the piss!! And then maybe SURFACE can make a come back!!!!!!
I want to see season 2 now 10 years later with miles and Nim all grown up living in a new waterworld after everything went down where the corporation iderdex is living in the bottom of the world where they build an underground kingdom of sorts with all the creatures of the world all the species and whom they selected to join their new community or new world rather and what’s left of the outside world is mostly water very few survivors and all of whatever Nim is I think it would be awesome even to do that as like a movie would be great and I think you would really make a lot of fans happy
we just saw Surface on Netflix n we loved it .I was searching the web looking for season 2 .But nothing that sucks its a great series ,it’s great .the second series will be a great hit with more viewers .now that’s the the first series on Netflix !!!!!
I just finished watching Surface on Netflix I wish I had known they had canceled it because I fell in love with the tv show and now I’m pissed I want MORE!
I signed the petitions, thank you for posting !
i read on Wik that the series was sus-
pended to cover Olympics & then just
evaporated. a REAL pity as the story
really JUST gets to a momentous juncture
@ the end of the final episode just like the
series “Revolution” & then kaput. the boy’s
character wears thin after awhile and too
often the music is mediocre or crap. the
CGI, while serviceable, could use a bit of
an upgrade.there is much gristle &fat to trim but all in all there’s a quite a bit to
enjoy and get the brain cells dancing. coincidentally 2 of the
actors(bell&ferguson) are connected by jon hamm.
PLZ i want season 2 its an interesting show. Don’t cancel it…..! (screams)
I just watched this series in less than a week! I was hooked from the very beginning. I am tired of quality show like Surface or shows like Firefly gets cancelled prematurely.
From what I understand the shows rating plummeted do to the Olympics interupting the flow off the series. It is I’ll advised to put a show off and on during something like the Olympics. There is no 6way a brand new show can gain followers and keep the ratings up if there is not a consistent time slot.
What a shame that this show will never have a conclusion!
It was a really good movie.sad it canceled, ending sucked.would of like to see more,what happens to nim,does to boy ever change back do they ever find the brother or the girls friend. Sad to know it’s all about the ratings.i guess I’ll have to she if there a book out,maybe there more.
I just watched 15 episodes of Surface on Netflix. How can the TV Execs let this show end? It is absolutely awesome and it sure beats the heck out of the crap and relity shows that are on now. It is now 2015, How about the ending that people have been waiting for for 9 years?????
I really enjoyed surface. Please I would like to see the next season 2
Just watched final show on Netflix and this had so much going for it. I agree with most of the comments on the crap that is reality TV taking over the channels.
I was to busy working when surface first came out now that I watched the whole first season now I want more.
