Did You Know?


Eline Powell performed the theme song ("Call of the Siren") during San Diego Comic Con 2018, which led to many fans thinking she really sang it in the series. The theme and all mermaid sound effects are actually performed by Mariana Berreto whose voice is also electronically altered to double for Donna's voice. See more »

Not perfect, has its flaws but has great potential
21 February 2019 | by Brandon-DonlonSee all my reviews

To address some previous points raised, yes the script writing isn't the greatest at times, some of the actors aren't the best, but the show does lead with some good actors(Alex Roe, Elaine Powell, Ian Verdun). The show can be cheesy, it can be cliche but there are redeeming factors that allow you to look past this.

While this show is obviously trying to be as "diverse" as possible if is definitely not some feminist show as has been said. At times you question the casting agents decision rather than paying attention to what's actually going on. For example Ryn's sister being played by a black actor. Now you can argue that "human races don't apply to mermaids", which, mermaids being left up to fiction allows such claims. But it is still very distracting from the actual plot.

The real gem of this show is "Ryn", played by Eline Powell, this actress I have never come across before but she is really standing out in this show for me. Her chemistry with "Ben"(Alex Roe) is quite special and their scenes are really what makes this show for me. All the other arcs of this story really seem like filler that you have to push through to have more of Ben and Ryn.

**Currently I give this show 9/10, because I can see through what's wrong at the moment and have good intuition that the show is heading in a good direction.**

Dropped the show to 7/10 stars, as of Season 2, episode 4. Hopefully things improve, what was a show heading in a good direction, is starting to stray away from the original uniqueness of the show that was enjoyable. The cliche's are becoming too common, love triangles and predictable story arcs.

Since this show is still airing I will continue to update this review, so rating is subject to change.
