Tidelands: Season 1 Reviews

December 11, 2019
One episode is not enough to understand its appeal ... A rewarding trash-watch [that] drew me in despite myself, until I realised I'd binged the whole thing.

Once you realize what you're meant to be taking from Tidelands... you realise this show is a f---ing GIFT.

Supernatural soap opera is sexual, violent -- and boring.

Best and Pataky are perfect in their roles, holding up their respective poles of the circus tent with great aplomb and demonstrating a remarkable ability to keep a straight face.

Finally, a supernatural guilty pleasure show that is not about vampires. Tidelands isn't perfect, but the characters and plot make for a fun ride.

When the shows works its atmosphere is heavy and drips with dark beauty. When it doesn't, which is a lot of the time, it feels cold and muscle-bound, pumped up in the wrong places.

This is popcorn entertainment through and through... Still, the show is competent enough, as both a crime drama and a CW-level supernatural story to warrant a watch.

It's a little weird, it's a little sexy, and it's a little violent. But the presence of Charlotte Best is the main reason why Tidelands is a compelling watch.

Tidelands is trash TV, but it's the type of entertaining trash that's sure to find an audience who will love it for exactly what it is.

Its parts are more than their sum; you are better off living in its moments than thinking about what any of it means.

A TV-MA take on mermaid lore, Tidelands is a completely serviceable drama series. It's average in most places and slightly above average in others... If you're into lots of violence, sex and nudity set to the backdrop of mermaids, give it a shot.

For all of its unnecessary violence and bizarrely place nudity, Tidelands is strangely boring. It has no verve, not even a crazy, ridiculous one - at least that would have been entertaining.

Tidelands is unsettling and unpredictable, shocking at times and audaciously sexy. Dive in.
