    It’s not exactly groundbreaking, but it’s fun to watch and slightly addictive.

    Mosley, Kevin Daniels, and Kevin Bigley play Chicago EMTs in this promising show, which is more comedically broad than Leary's Rescue Me and much raunchier than your average USA series. [7 Mar 2014, p.61]

    The humor's as broad as Lake Michigan, but when Sirens wades in a little deeper, as it occasionally does, it sometimes manages to be even funnier.

    The show's younger stars all are personable, if not yet exactly memorable, and all told, their show is an agreeable, mildly amusing time-passer.

    The humor is smart-ish and has more bite and suggestive raunch than you’d expect.

    The comedy is “Rescue Me”-like, but lighter, with less angst.

    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.

    Love this show! I wasn't sure I would even give this show a try but I am glad I did. For me, this is laugh-out-loud funny. Great chemistry from the actors. I have gotten other friends to watch and they love it too. Hoping on a 2nd season. Expand

    I wasn't expecting much, but I was really impressed with the first two episodes. If you're a fan of shows like Scrubs, Psych, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine, then you will probably enjoy Sirens. Expand

    Good to see that Sirens was renewed for a second season.

    I thought the interaction among the characters made the show. Sirens is one of
    those shows where the cast just seems to enjoy working together.

    The writing could be a little tighter, but the humor is good (if sometimes wandering towards a shade of coarseness).

    It's a fun show to watch.

    As a vehicle for advancing non-traditional social norms, this is mildly funny. Taken without the agenda, it is dumber than the average comedy and far below the average for USA Network. Expand
