Sirens: Season 1 Reviews

March 12, 2014
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).
March 10, 2014
Sirens' style of humor doesn't trade on punchlines, and its characterization is subtler than most sitcoms. But it is solidly entertaining.

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.

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.
March 6, 2014
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.
March 5, 2014
Think of Sirens as Rescue Me Lite. Which isn't such a terrible thing to be.

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.

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.
