I liked this show and I'm kind-of bummed that it isn't coming back. I liked the characters and while the SFX wasn't always the greatest, it was very X-Files first season. Limited budgets sometimes don't lead to the greatest effects! But the show had heart. And if you suspended your disbelief for a moment or two, it had a sense of wonderment too. Like you were seeing something grand, discovering new life right there with the characters.

That's what made this show, the characters. Rich and Laura were great - Rich in his undying faith and Laura in her pragmatism. They had great chemistry and made the show work. Miles was another great character. Even though some of his scenes with Nim didn't always look right, he made it work as best as he could.

Yes, this show had flaws. They all do. Lost wasn't perfect when it first began but ABC was willing to let it grow. I never got the feeling that NBC had faith in the show. If they had just given it a little TLC, this baby would have swam laps around other shows!

But what we are left with is still really good! I'm totally going to buy this when it comes out.

The great advantage that Surface offered over The X-Files was that it stayed on its key story without interrupting one-shot adventures. A vast tapestry of characters that only finally all came together in the climactic 15th episode, Surface had a focus that the other great conspiracy/sci-fi giant lacked. The X-Files finally felt as though it were being made-up as the writers went along, with the big conspiracy being revealed in the end to be a recycled 1970s "ancient astronaut" idea that was already dated when the old Battlestar Galactica played with it in 1978. Surface, on the other hand, showed every sign of meticulous planning by the writers, teasing us along in one ongoing saga that rewarded our attention. The utter lack of faith NBC showed in such a well-crafted project with a broad demographic appeal was mirrored only by the CW's similarly inexplicable decision to kill the equally-exceptional Everwood. The spring of 2006 was apparently a hard time to be excellent television.

The DVD set will remain exceptional science-fiction/thriller viewing. Yet it will also have more than a hint of tragedy for the viewer in the "what might have been" of what the ongoing story could have become.

This was my favorite of the three new sci-fi shows included in the "new season" last year. I think it cruel to leave all the viewers hanging without proper closer to the series. At the very least a "made-for t-v" movie should be made to give us fans the ending of the story.

I gave this 4 stars instead of the 5 it derserves only because the network has not given us the story ending the show and the fans deserve.

I WAS HOOKED from the very first scene of this wonderful show! Surface didn't get a chance to be viewed by many people. I live in the UK and you have to have Sky and watch an obscure channel to see this show. which is a great shame. Instead a sketchy show like Invasion that gets a huge launch, over-hyped and lacked eveything this show had.

BRING IT BACK!!!! At least one more season, please!

when i first watched i was very supprised how much was in each episode! Key events happen in each one. there are three main characters who all have a brush with the creatures, which take them further into the mystery. the acting is good, the stories are gripping and the effects are great! you'll be hooked!!!

GIVE IT A CHANCE!!!

If you liked the classic Spielberg movies like Close Encounter, Jaws, E.T., Jurassic Park and movies he was working on like The Goonies and Gremlins and if you like the James Cameron movie The Abyss, then you will love SURFACE! The new series is the best SciFi series ever I think. You ask why? The answer: It has great actors and it is set into our own world right now. It has great mysteries (which we will never get answered thanks to NBC!!!) and this sense of wonder I was missing for years on SciFi television. No space crafts and future stories... instead a great mystery SciFi setting in our 'real' world with subplots about (maybe?) alien beeings, sea monsters, mutants and advanced genetics.

Buy this DVD if you have never heard from this show because you will not regret it!

I can't believe NBC dropped this show! This shows only once more the TV companies do not have the brightest people working for them... a very bad decission to not giving this great series another season... and a big letdown for all the fans of this show.

...by not giving it the full season it needed, pre-empting it frequently and for up to a month at a time, and then ending it on a cliffhanger, knowing it wouldn't be renewed.

This was honestly the first TV show in years that I looked forward to each week. The story was interesting, the characters grew on you, and unlike shows like Lost, new and interesting revelations were frequent, and the show was not bashful in showing the creatures.

It was funny, suspenseful, and had more than a few great shocks (the fishing boat scene at the end of episode 2, Rich and Laura watching the old film and finding out something very odd about one of the villains later in the series, just to mention a few).

This was the first TV show I've ever bought for DVD, because I enjoyed watching it that much. The show is given short shrift even here -- the only bonus stuff is a marginally-interesting short featurette, and deleted scenes that were deleted for a reason, as they didn't really add much.

I would love to see a continuation, whether it was a new season, a miniseries, a movie, or even a book, but I won't hold my breath. Still, this was a great series, and it deserves to be watched.
