Brilliant

The summary depicts "Sirens" in a nutshell - it is one very well acted, very funny, very terrific T.V show. Being a fan of shows like "Scrubs", I was very pleased with how the first episode was directed, not to mention the great characterization that we've seen thus far. The three main actors are all superb; delivering a solid, realistic performance of life and routine of being a paramedic, whilst simultaneously providing plenty of laughs to develop the comedy aspect of the show.

As well as that, there seems to be a good amount of medical knowledge and medical gore involved (which is to be expected), so we are kept from the "surreal" notion of a sitcom. The characters are well-developed and the actors seem to fit the roles perfectly, judging by how well they play the parts.

Being from Ireland, I could tell straightaway that the setting and props used are all spot-on (e.g. - the uniforms, streets, ambulances, etc.), which is good, because it shows that the creators spared no expenses in perfecting every little detail, even if they don't have a very large budget to do it with.

My analysis: "Sirens" is a very funny and very realistic T.V show, which contains brilliant acting and terrific direction. I only hope it gets the viewing levels to keep going, because it has amazing potential.

10/10
