  1. Sucky News: “Siren cancelled”. https://deadline.com/2020/08/siren-canceled-freeform-after-3-seasons-1203005299/amp/ As usual, I’m late to the table.
  2. LOL, if they should feel sorry for an actor/character, it should be Sam/James Denton. I don't know what his damage is, but the guy brings all the gravity of a Black Hole to a relationship. He sucks at it! Never having bothered with that "Housewives" drama, I have no historical basis for this opinion, but Sam <= George in the "Interesting" category. Is it the writing or the Channel?
  3. Dreaded words to hear from Martha, “ Hell-Looooww!🎵” And “Oh, my."! Patrons always scamper away.
  4. @CowgirlA splendid description of Martha, down to the fine detail. 👏 Don't forget that voice, can it be considered an accessory; like a bell around a cat's neck alerting you to her coming presence?
  5. You got the last part right. I'm sitting here with a cocktail listening to the latest inane Guidelines. Glad to see you're still safe Cowgirl!!! OH, BTW, I think the label Gypsy is a pejorative and has always been offensive.
  6. Damn, I miss the banter amongst the posters here, more than I miss the show. I’ll have to eventually dip my toes back in.
  7. Haven't watched this show since Dolls left and Wynonna got pregnant with the scruffy one's child. Shit went haywire from there. I may give it another look. A lot of good Syfy has been cancelled and I'm grateful for at least one familiar show that can be distracting from this Coronamess.
  8. You're right. Thats sucks. I had my hopes up for a quick turnaround:' From Futon Critic: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch/siren/ ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its third season on 5/28/20; has yet to be renewed for a fourth season DESCRIPTION: (from Freeform's press release, January 2020) Freeform's mermaid drama "Siren" returns for a third season with a two-episode premiere on THURSDAY, APRIL 2 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EDT). Ben's shocking decision to let the reporter die at the end of season two has ripple effects in his relationship with Maddie and Ryn. Meanwhile, a dangerous, sophisticated new mermaid arrives in Bristol Cove, challenging Ryn's leadership and igniting an epic undersea battle between rival tribes. All of this is complicated by the fact that Ryn's baby, now being carried by a surrogate, must be protected at all costs. PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION: · Alex Roe as Ben · Aylya Marzoff as Katrina · Eline Powell as Ryn · Fola Evans-Akingbola as Maddie · Ian Verdun as Xander · Rena Owen as Helen · Sedale Threatt, Jr. as Levi · Sibongile "Sibo" Mlambo
  9. Just to confirm, this finale was a MID-season finale correct? The series may come back whenever they resume shooting around the end-of-Winter for part: 3-B?
  10. That final scene, with Ryn posed on the rock looking out, would make a nice poster to replace that iconic one, of Ryn just floating in the water. As an advertisement for the show, it's a nice moment in time.
  11. Big props to the special effects team AND the Director. They put together a very good episode, despite the plot holes. The plot holes, to me, didn't detract from the great, although slightly murky, underwater battle. I'd love to see the "Making of". The scene with Hope sitting on the boat and Ryn dived onboard in full mermaid form, finding out from Hope that Ben wasn't around, and then diving back in to find her Ben, was a fantastic scene. I applauded the decision to get all the regulars from Bristol Cove working together. Even Calvin got a chance to do something besides suck. Yes, R.I.P. Dale, you had some good scenes when you were around. Yura's army came in fast and hot, out of nowhere. I am left to wonder whether Ryn's sudden ferocity, Berserker-style, was fueled by her bond with Maddie snd her screams when she found Dale dead or perhaps when she sensed Hope was with Ben. I exploded in disbelief when Ryn did a simple spin and with her spear, stabbed Tia. It was too easy, but I cheered, after rewinding 5-6 times, and saw the tribes bow to Ryn. Maddie and Xander, would be just too weird, but it does seem like that's where it's headed. Maddie and Robb, is just Ben and Ryn, so nope. Keep the Ben-Ryn relationship as the only current Human-Full Mermaid couple on the show. Never thought I would say this but Xander and Calvin, ya done good. I can't call them Dumb and Dumber any more. Now we wait....
  12. Who is Jerry? Is he the guy that works with Maddie, in their lab, and is a bit sweet on her? I'm surprised "Petty Ted" hasn't gotten a megaphone and announced to Bristol Cove, "There are REAL mermaids among us!!". Ted needs a phone call from Tia. He will not be missed.
  13. I have a question I would like to pose to Siren Forum Posters: At the end of "Til Death Do Us Part", with Ryn placing a wedding band on Ben's Ring finger, and their joint declaration of "Til Death Do Us Part" did anyone else view that scene as an unofficial marriage? I have a bet going with my brother. 😷(There's a smile under there)
  14. Sorry if already posted. Den of Geek's take on the episode: Siren Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Til Death Do Us Part Another review: REVIEW: Siren – 3.08: “Til Death Do Us Part”. Contains a slight spoiler by skipping ahead to the next episode's synopsis.
  15. While I'm one of the first to point out this "White savior syndrome" in scripted shows, I don't think it's entirely warranted in this case. While Ryn may be a Warrior and head of her tribe, she is thoroughly outclassed by Tia. Ryn lacks certain skills that someone with a different mindset can readily see. For instance, Ryn saw Tia's challenge and was ready to just throw down, both Ben and Maddie, even Helen, and Xander imparted some crucial knowledge that helped Ryn in her fight. Help with battle plans is just expected. Ryn is not a seasoned campaign fighter. Plus Tia is a cheater. She didn't beat her opponents fairly, her lance was rigged to elongate at the press of a button. That as not a mermaid-made lance, that lance was created by humans specifically to kill other mermaids.
