Trivia:
Frequently pokes fun at its fellow UPN supernatural/action/comedy series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997). For instance, in the first episode, Captain Page tells Kate that all myths and stories of monsters are based on actual creatures, except vampires, which are total fiction.See more »

Gargoyle:This good-cop, bad-cop routine is worse than Starsky and Hutch.

Why SU2 was canceled, 28 January 2007
Author: deeare98 from Rochester, Michigan, USA

The reason the show was canceled was due to a copyright infringement. It turns out that the show was based on a role playing game and no one got permission from the creator to pinch his stuff.

He tried to talk to the producers and writers but couldn't find any satisfactory answer to the infringement. The producers decided to cancel the show.

I believe the name of the RPG was "Bureau 13", I was also told that the writers had played the game when they were younger.

They probably forgot where they got the idea for the show (I least I hope it was accidental.)
