Looks like Freeform's new show has legs... and also a pretty intimidating tail. If Siren can fulfill the promise of its first few episodes, it might just grow into one of the most innovative shows on television.
The characters have strong personality traits, and they feel like fully formed people with different driving forces that make sense. It is so easy to reason why each of them does what they do, and it has only been two episodes.
Everyone wears their heart on their sleeve and by god they are trying as hard as they can to deliver the premise...Siren is worth a look for anyone craving their next YA fix. It's not the best the genre has to offer, but it's far from the worst.
Perhaps like the amphibious fish that grew legs, the series could evolve into a fully realized something... anything. But as it stands, it's best to resist Freeform's "Siren" song or you might find that you'll just want to throw it back.
