2005 Creator/{{ABC}} ScienceFiction series. ''Invasion'' is set after a devastating hurricane ravages large parts of Florida. However, this hurricane is different from others as it drops thousands of orange 'lights' into the ocean. This event is seen only by the few people brave (or naive) enough to go outside stand at the coast during the storm. In the aftermath of the hurricane, people start disappearing, and people thought to be dead suddenly re-emerge. And there we have an awesome set up for an awesome series. Creator/{{ABC}}, however, apparently thought differently about that matter and decided to cancel it after just one season, leaving the viewer lost in a sea of loose ends (and it was even ended on a {{Cliffhanger}} involving the protagonist's girlfriend). Creator/{{NBC}} and Creator/{{CBS}} had two similar programs airing that season, ''Surface'' and ''Threshold'' respectively; they also wound up being TooGoodToLast. ---- !!This series provides examples of: * ExecutiveMeddling : Originally, it showed the alien invasion taking place in a hurricane. However,[[RealLifeWritesThePlot Hurricane Katrina]] had hit New Orleans around the time of the premiere, so the hurricane references, while still there, were significantly downplayed. * InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers: This classic movie was clearly what inspired the series. * TomatoInTheMirror: The replicants that replaced the real individuals truly believe they are the actual person they're copying. They, even, have the memories. The sheriff, in fact, had been replicated and was UNAWARE of what had happened to him for years. %%((NOTE: This troper is new/inexperienced and it's also been a long time since he's watched the series. So if someone else would be kind enough to fill in the trope-index for this series and/or expand the article. It would be much appreciated.))
