Created by twin brothers and television writers-producers-directors Josh and Jonas Pate (L.A. Dragnet), Surface stars rangy beauty Lake Bell as oceanographer and single mom Dr. Laura "Dee" Daughtery. While doing some research in a submersible at the bottom of the sea, Dee discovers a seemingly bottomless pit leading to astonishing depths in the Earth. But she also bumps into a sea monster that emanates electrical charges strong enough to wreak havoc with her vessel. Meanwhile, a Louisiana-based insurance salesman, Rich (Jay R. Ferguson), is traumatized when he sees his brother dragged away by a similar creature, and a 14-year-old boy, Miles (Carter Jenkins), raises one of the beasts after it hatches from an egg. Throughout all this, a scientist (Rade Sherbedgia) and a heavy-handed national security agent (Ian Anthony Dale) are trying to unlock the mystery of the species, which appears to be growing in number at the same time strange forces are affecting the oceans. Naturally, there's a story behind the story--government and corporate shenanigans and all that. That stuff gets a little tedious and, truth be told, a couple of the show's protagonists are among the most unlikable people seen in series television in a long while. But despite its premature end after a mere 15 episodes, Surface finally offers an original, unsettling, and even surreal vision of the world going through apocalyptic transformations. The final image of the final show lingers in the imagination a long time. --Tom Keogh
This was probably the last network drama I got hooked on. Then they cancelled it at the end of the first season. This DVD is worth the purchase price. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Susan Kite
I loved the show very much. It seemed very realistic. The ending has a very vivid imagination as to what could happen next. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Dorothy F. Ratto
The story line was easy to follow and a little corny, but fun. We loved it and couldn't wait to watch the next episodes. In fact, we were hoping for more. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Scotty Paige Sr.

nbc axed this before it had a chance. the networks ax sci fi very quickly because it's much more expensive to make.
