    The first 30 seconds looked great.
    I hope this will be good and not devolve into a splatter effects fest^^

    the latter would scare much more than the former!

    Agreed. Twilight ruined vampires. We don't want this to happen to mermaids next

    Ha! Finally a badass mermaid on TV.

    A little piece of series trivia- it is being filmed in Vancouver, and it looks from this trailer like they're using the same place in Richmond, BC (Steveston, the fishing port on Lulu Island) where they filmed Storybrooke of Once Upon a Time, as well as some scenes in The X-Files.

    You can watch the premiere episodes for free on Freeform right now, I hear it's on Hulu too.

    Anyway, I watched it and I think it's off to a good start. I'm not obsessed with it (yet) but it's good enough to keep my interest at the moment. Totally looking forward to new episodes. I really hope they play up the mystery elements.

    Also, FreeForm partnered with FinFun and they did an Instagram promotion where the winner got a tail inspired by the show. It looks so cool, I'd love for them to make it available for purchase. I really want a cool, monster-style mermaid tail!

    Might be awhile if you are waiting for a DVD release since the show just premiered. Hopefully a streaming site for Eu. picks it up though.

    We caught it on Saturday night after a pod swim and I have to say I'm pretty intrigued so far.

    I enjoyed it for the most part. The mermaids are by far the best actors on the show tho lol.

    I found it much more interesting than the tween focused mermaid shows with magic rings and manufactured teen angst. It will be interesting to see what they do with the "Siren" aspect of the show since they just touched on it with their singing.

    It's a cool idea, but TBH I lost interest when I saw her tossing people around like ragdolls in the trailer. I think they kind of went overboard on her powers.

    I liked it. The acting wasn't great, and there were quite a few cliches, but overall, I'm excited.

    Can someone PM me a summary of the last couple episodes? Like, what are those gill-looking scars on that on dude's neck?

    Noooooo! I'm in Australia and can't watch it yet!

    Are there any other sites to see it?

    Hi @MermaidJaffa,

    It'll probably be a long time before the series makes its way to Australia.

    There are 2 ways to watch it right away I can think of:

    1. Freeform streams older episodes of the show here:

    https://freeform.go.com/shows/siren

    but the problem is it's geolocked so that if their server determines you're IP address is not from the United States, it won't let you watch. (Even though the show is actually filmed in Canada, even Canadians can't watch the show directly from Freeform)

    But intrepid bingewatchers in Australia have been getting around Netflix's abysmal service there for years by using VPNs to give themselves a US IP address. The same VPN workaround will let you watch Siren on Freeform.

    2. Bittorrent. If you're up for learning how to use it and have lots of hard drive space, the shows appear in downloadable form within hours of their broadcast. If you save them on a USB flash drive or portable hard drive, most Blu-Ray players now will play them from the drive, or you can stream them over your home network from your computer to your TV.
