I may have laughed more than I have while watching any other comedy this season.

The ongoing storyline between Theresa and Johnny is one of the best elements of this fine sitcom.

There's more going on in Sirens than the vast bulk of what other cable comedies are offering and more than 50 percent of network sitcoms (where, let's not kid ourselves, the quality is actually higher than on cable).

The humor is very dark and very light at the same time. Which is a trademark of Leary's comedy.

If you've been missing Rescue Me, Sirens will sound familiar. Others will be annoyed by the screeching.

Sirens' style of humor doesn't trade on punchlines, and its characterization is subtler than most sitcoms. But it is solidly entertaining.

March 10, 2014 Full Review Source: AV Club

Confusing tastelessness and cheap profanity with actual humor, this misfire from executive producer Denis Leary feels like a series of limp outtakes from the more daring Rescue Me.

Nonetheless, the characters aren't all that interesting yet, nor are they all that likable in the end, so it's pretty much a wash as a show.

It's worrisome that USA did not make the pilot available for review but later episodes are funny enough.

Leary's last show, Rescue Me, worked because it never lost the humanity. The task for Sirens, which will take a few weeks, is to establish it.

It's far funnier than most comedies on the air and, like Rescue Me, has a strong ensemble.

March 6, 2014 Full Review Source: rogercatlin.com

While it does skew very male, you will find, hidden among all the T&A verbiage and wearisome male befuddlement, some very clever writing and an assortment of funny jokes.

Unlike most men-will-be-boys comedies, it has a well-crafted script that doesn't imitate its subjects' aimlessness and low standards.

Given how long USA has been talking about expanding its portfolio to encompass half-hours, this maiden effort just isn't worth sounding any alarms to herald its arrival.

Think of Sirens as Rescue Me Lite. Which isn't such a terrible thing to be.

March 5, 2014 Full Review Source: USA Today

At its best is dumb fun. Johnny, Hank and rookie EMT Brian of course keep making a fine mess of things. They also mesh together pretty well in a series that bracingly is without a detracting laugh track.

Overtones of Rescue Me, absent the wit and bite.

The pilot episode is solid, but the following two episodes are better.

Maybe a little edgier than USA's usual fare - though the porn episode's not till next week - Sirens has fun with the people working a tough job and benefits from guest shots by people like Jean Smart and Leary-show veteran Lenny Clarke.

In seven seasons of Rescue Me, Denis Leary proved he could do drama with humor. In his new show, Sirens, he changes it up, proving he can do comedy without humor. It's not clear why you would want to do this, but there it is.

This is a substantial show already helmed by a likable group of actors.

It pushes the envelope of primetime television, but ultimately, it's a well-produced and funny show.
