    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.

Its right up my ally with the humor and focus on the characters, and the acting is just so spot-on. And is no one going to talk about how this is the first major show to accurately depict an asexual person? THE FIRST. And how respectfully they treat Stats with her cocktail of mental illnesses? And, oh my god, un-effeminate gay black man. Hank is such a fantastic character. I really hope there will be more than 2 seasons of this show, I love it so much Expand

Things like clearing someone's Browser History for them. Like most comedy's there isn't much of a real story, But that's alright seeing every episode will still make you laugh. Sirens is a good comedy for fans of shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia or The League , FX Seems to know what makes a good TV comedy and are sticking with it. I'm looking forward to season 2. 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.
