    Tidelands (Netflix)

    Figured I start a thread for a new show on Netflix for those of us who have seen it.

    Tidelands follows the story of a former criminal who returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay. When the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, she must uncover the town's secrets while investigating its strange inhabitants, who are a group of dangerous half-sirens, half-humans called "Tidelanders"

    Warning!: SPOILERS throughout this thread AND, just as a heads up, this is definitely a NSFW/kids show. Drugs and nudity.

    Adrielle looks so much like Hannah Fraser. I had to check to make sure it wasn't her!

    Hannah does a lot of stunt double work so might be worth checking the credits I am excited to watch this after I binge all the recent true crime updates haha

    Definitely don't think it's her.

    SPOILER we don't see the true fishy sirens for most of this movie so not much for her to do. Maybe in the next season.

    It is an interesting show. I binged the whole thing in a single night.

    Hannah Fraser is Australian and does stunt work for Australian actors.

    I know, she confuses a lot of people that way because she always had an accent and then I noticed she recently started trying not to have one. The first time I met her she had one, the second time, she didn't. But yeah she has a greencard to be in the US. Also, her father is famous... (was rather, he passed)

    She is not credited for any stunt work for the show.

    No no, sorry I seem to have everyone confused. She is not in the show at all. I just remarked how much the lead actress looked like her.

    Ok I finally watched the first 3 episodes and I am so damn hooked and invested it's not funny. lol First of all.. YES she looks so much like Hannah it's freaking me out. Second, this is like "trueblood" but for mermaids. So much sex and violence. Everyone is sleeping with everyone lol. I wasn't expecting that. I thought it would be on par with "siren" but it's blown past that. So so so good. I love it

    Right! I remember I sat down to watch the pilot and by the end of it I canceled the rest of my night because I had so many questions I needed answered and then binged the whole thing.

    I hoped to see some merpeople in that show.
    But it seems those Tidelanders are more like underwater humans.

    But "The Little Mermaid" (2018) which is also on Netflix is really nice.

    It seems like we'll be getting more of the actual sirens who do have fins next season but the tidelanders are definitely not scaled people.

    I love the whole concept. When I researched mermaid myths for my book, only a few myths included an actual full fish tail. There are so many variations it's really interesting!!!

    I loved the whole thing. It reminded me a bit of trueblood but not cheesy
