I am on the 6th episode and I'm writing this review because ...there
aren't so many in IMDb! Why is that? Well, I guess the show isn't
popular. But it should be!
This is a well casted comedy series about a station of paramedics and the quirky situations they encounter, in their job and in their personal lives.
The humor has many references about sex. Sometimes over the top, but still enjoyable. Even the characters are somehow "special" in that department. You have the big black man who is gay (similar to Brooklyn 9-9), the girl who is asexual and into some other weird stuff, and ...you get my meaning.
Obviously, because the show is about a group of people that deal with medical emergencies, you can expect lots of weird "physical" humor too.
Now that Brooklyn 9-9 became too far-fetched (and somehow boring and repetitive), Sirens is my new favorite comedy.
One or ten ratings usually indicate the person has a personal complaint
with the show. Either an actor, director or even the network offends
them and they are making their great mark in the world because they
have an opinion, never taking into consideration the work that goes
into something nor thinking how others may see the program.
That being said I gave it an 8 (eight). It probably deserves a 6 on my normal scale or a 6.5 but I liked it and so did my wife. It put me in mind of the beginnings of the old Scrubs series. Very fast pace, comic timing and witty.
Usually there are one or two characters you don't like but so far they have been excellently cast. Whether it lasts long I don't know. Looks like the series was tried in 2011 for six episodes and I have never seen those.
This is a modern look at everyday life comical moments and the way they are dealt with or made fun of and we enjoyed it.
The main problem with the show is it's over before you know it.
It's not Boring or repetitive, it's fresh and makes me feel like I am
watching psych and I love how funny it is and it doesn't seem
far-fetched at all!
The character development is amazing, when I watched other shows..I couldn't get a feel on the characters but I do for these characters like Hank!
it has become my favorite comedy on TV right now.
people should really get into this show, USA is going great from this show and I can not wait for playing house!
I think what you need to know right off the bat is that this comes from
(the great) Denis Leary, assisted by the writer of, among other things,
the movie Wedding Crashers. They may not be your cup of tea.
Vulgar? Yes. Crude? Yes. Naughty? Oh, yes. They are riding a fine line of what can be done on cable TV (on USA, not HBO, etc) and what's just Too Far. I find myself laughing out loud at this when I'm alone. I'm pleasantly surprised at the writing and fast-paced dialogue laced with pop-culture references. The three lead male actors have excellent chemistry.
Give it a try. If you can, start from the pilot and move on. USA probably has them all available for online viewing. I was glad I started watching.
Hope Netflix can pick this up and have them make more episodes just
found out about the show on Netflix and watched both seasons and
honestly this show is packed with the funniest lines I've ever heard
and 10/10 is an absolute great f****n show! Hope Someone can see this
review and make the show come back I don't know about everyone else but
this show is just really funny and the actors who come out our
excellent, really hope this show can make a comeback I and the rest of
the sirens fans need assistance !!!

This show was not perfect, but it was funny. It had some great moments
and was pretty consistent in it's level of quality. No, I didn't rush
to review this early on, I honestly thought the suits would give it a
fair run. They did not. I have had have very little respect for TV
executives over the year and every now and then, they prove that my
contempt for them is justified. They are scum.
OK, my rant is over. Bottom line however, I don't know how these folks get their jobs, but I hate them. Sure, many GREAT shows have made it, even some simply GOOD. But way too many GOOD shows have been dumped because the greedy filth don't see enough profit soon enough. We all know how close "Seinfeld" came to being cancelled. 'Nuff said. It actually survived and went on to become one of THE classic comedies of all time. How sad more shows, like "SIRENS" aren't given that chance.
Well, dirtbags will always have the final say. Until they end up as dirt themselves, but that always takes so damn long, and there's always plenty of dirt to take their place.
"Star Trek" anyone?
I had no expectations for this show, but I was so pleasantly surprised
at how realistic it is in terms of plot lines. Its not really rolling
on the floor laughter that it means to provoke but there are a few
moments of those as well. Everything seems plausible, unlike so many
other shows which have outlandish plot lines that you just cringe at
seeing (ie the "Happy Endings" took, even though I still somewhat like
There are serious moments too which also feel real. The chemistry between the cast is great and easy to see.
All in all a great new show and worth watching.
This show is pretty amazing. The jokes are fresh and funny. The lines
mesh right in and the characters feel all real, unique, and lovable;
even the weird ones. Oh God especially the weird ones.
This show does a lot of things that MIGHT make some viewers uncomfortable on paper but the execution is so good that it erases all walls. If you are straight and have problems being homophobic, Hank is a character that'll surprise you. IMO the best characters are Brian and Billy. I would pay to watch a sitcom or spin off show about those two.
Anyways this show does a lot of what sitcoms fail at; making all of their characters including the side ones funny/fresh/vibrant and lovable. There is a dispatcher woman with a very loud and confident voice who drops profound womanly wisdom and logic.
This is an adaptation of the British version of the show which I will watch soon. However, I loved that they did this show in Chicago and showed a portion of what goes on in Chicago; kids and families end up getting shot and sometimes the show gets very real. Regardless, if you want something to watch that's entertaining and funny and definitely fresh/unique from other sitcoms, this is that one.
Don't let the fact this has been canceled stop you from watching it. Guaranteed better than most shows on today.
My DVR is empty, EMPTY because the figgin overpaid, low-IQ Hollywood
suits, yet again, cancels a show with a great cast and scripts. I
didn't write a review because I didn't think it needed one other than
me giving it 9 stars during its first season.
This show was a breath of fresh air. I loved Hank, Johnny, and Brian. And the supporting cast from Johnny's and Teresa's parents, Hank's boyfriends, Brian's asexual non-girlfriend Voodoo, and the other EMTs, they had chemistry. I mean, hell, Brian's gifts to V were classic! These characters cracked jokes that you know everyone has thought at one time but didn't have the ya'ya's to say.
Damn I am so mad. I hate you Execs.
I'm going to binge on _Suits_, again.
As a young college student, I spend a lot of time on Netflix
procrastinating. There has been many nights where I caught myself
blowing off an assignment just because I was glued to what ever I was
watching. Even if I am doing homework, I still have something playing
in the background. When watching a show there has to be certain
requirements for me to blow off an assignment for; it has to have
chemistry among the cast, raunchiness, consistency, characters I can
relate with, and entertaining stories. With the show Sirens, I find
myself glued to whichever screen I am using.
CHEMISTRY AMONG CAST Kevin Daniels, Hank, and Michael Mosley, Tommy, make a hilarious duo, and Kevin Bigley as Brian, is the perfect actor to play an awkward man-child. Those three provide some incredibly entertaining material when they are together. RAUNCHINESS As a show that brings out the lighter side of being and EMT, this is not for the faint of heart. Foul language, things being stuck in people's butts, and gore are all things that are in this show, and each situation is made hilarious.
CONSISTENCY Every time that I start playing this show I know that I am going have at least three or four howling laughs before and episode ends. Each episode has it's own situation that the group is put into and it is guaranteed to be hilarious.
CHARACTERS YOU CAN RELATE WITH Each one of the characters you can relate with. Whether it's Brian's naive nature, Hank's common-sense, or Tommy's romanticism, you will find some part of each character you can relate with.
STORIES As I have stated before, this show provides many unique stories and each will have you laughing in the end. Sometimes you even catch a little bit of the feels when you suddenly feel something pull on your heart strings when something affects one of the characters,
