Is anyone else watching this new Mermaid based series? It is a bit sci-fi, a bit fantasy, a bit horror, a bit young persons drama, a bit action. The first 4 episodes are overall very good. The Mermaids themselves are well acted with convincing movements.

I gave this three episodes then couldn't go on. I bit too dumb for me. But, each to their own.

The 3rd episode had quite a chunk that seemed on the dumb/silly side. Four seemed pretty good again so hopefully it wont drop into dross. I imagine it will be a tough one to make a decent story for more seasons. Maybe one more. The Mermaids need some reason to be coming back to shore and it can't just be them being captured repeatedly. Or perhaps they will decide to live among the people..

I watched the first 2 episodes and apparently I missed the other two. I don't like horror movies, so some moments were difficult to watch for me. Not impressed so far.

I've been watching. I like the concept of the man eating mermaids and how it works. I also like the strange girl that got to play Rin. They do use makeup on her but she looks strange or other worldly naturally.

The main dude's acting os a bit stiff and clumsy. Hopefully he'll improve over time. The two friends could also stand to be tuned down a bit.

It is definitely a fun series. Other than parts of episode 3 I have enjoyed it. The action in episode 7 this week was not so polished but this series is definitely a worthwhile watch if you like the violent mermaids theme. I didn't find myself getting annoyed by what the characters do as happens in a lot of series. The effect of the siren song on people works really well.
As Anthoney says the Rin character is played so well and has the right weird look, and is central to making the show interesting.
