    Ok well that seems a little ridiculous. I'm making a new thread so we can actually discuss it because if we can't talk about the plot, then what's the point?

    Did you end up making that thread? I just finished Season 4. It was so great. I'm going to have to rewatch it now!!

    Something I've been wondering
    exactly how long are the tails from Mako Mermaids
    like how much length do they add to the actors' bodies?
    Little Sailor, Little fool, your better heed the golden rule
    do unto other just as you, would like to to have them do to you

    Look here for a thread on extended tails. I seem to recall a graphic showing one of the H2O girls with a grid on it.
    There are also a number of you tube videos showing making the H2O tails.

    Another place to look is for production images the Film "fishtales." (2007 Billy Zane/Kelly Brook) which was done by the same FX studio. I downloaded a graphic showing the internal structure of that tail. Where the straps attach etc. I found the image "fishtales03.jpg" using an image search. I see it was linked in this post http://mernetwork.com/index/showthre...ll=1#post38376 however the link is broken. The image however does appear in a google image search on a Russian page.

    The short answer is that it shows from fluke to the toes as about the same as the toes to the knee. The extender rod seems to be about the size of the calf to the toes. So the tails are quite extended.


    Now if Netflix would bring back H2O (original) And Ocean Girl ...

    I find Mako island difficult to re watch. Some of the episodes, they are not in the tails at all.

    The cartoon is cute though, and I tend to re watch some of those.

    You make me feel old. I was 50 when it was on Netflix (mid life crisis?) I see it originally aired in the late 1990s. So I still would have been in my late 30s.

    it seems it was called Ocean Odyssey in some markets. A bit better title. Same production company and explains why there is a UFO spaceship on the credits.

    Surprised Mako did not take that route, the crashed ET plot. I did like that the bad girl of one series became the focus and protagonist of later series. Lessons learned. Their was some recasting that made some of the later seasons to feel a bit awkward.

    edit: The best thing of Ocean Girl was that one of the kid actors, became one of the directors of H2O, and I think did some of the better re-watchable episodes. I think his name was Jeffery Walker. (too lazy to look it up)

    Oh! I love that show, so excited that they are making a movie! I hope that we get to see the original mermaids again from H2O, but I was glad that we could at least see Rikki back.

    It may not be on Netflix but I got good news about H2O: Just Add water. It's FREE! The whole series is on their youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/H2OtheOfficial/videos

    H2O just add water came back on Netflix streaming in the US of A. This is not the first time it disappeared then re-appeared. H2O is not easy to get in the US of A on Region 1 DVD. When it is, it is expensive. Never looked to see what the availability of OG is.

    Ocean Girl, never had much of the same following (even if it is the same plot as Mako Mermaids.) so I would not hold my breath for it's return.

    The 'Three tails' movie is a joke. A kids you tube video funded by daddy. I had a friend once who funded his granddaughter's attempt at an Anime cartoon as an attempt to further a Pop singing career. Last I heard she grew up and he was paying for her to attend medical school.

    Then there is Zig and Sharko, which Netflix also recommend. Best I can say it has a mermaid in it. Who uses her fins to walk on land. Makes the H2O cartoon look almost professional.

    Thanx for the update mersheep! I think in Canada we don't get as good a selection as in the USA.

    Also Thank You Slim for the YouTube link!

    My connection is not up for full high-res on Netflix (I usually get bumped back to medium-res 720p) but I've been rewatching H2O in full high-res on my big computer screen. Better than TV.

    Hmmm. This does raise the question as to why YouTube plays better on my computer than Netflix does on my TV.

    Also, while I've seen Ocean Girl DVD sets on sale regularly on eBay, I've never seen them in Region 1. They've been either from Australia (Region 4) or Europe (Region 2) For me that's OK, since my player plays DVDs from any region, and I can play them on my computer from any region, but something for people in North America to keep in mind.

    The answer to the that with the computer screen is more processor in the computer screen and computer vs TV. Unless you get a good name brand TV that separate the at least two processor so one is for smart feature and the other for the TV function, it's going to suffer a bit more than a computer.

    Does anyone have this series or a place where it can be downloaded from?
