  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.
  16. I think Tia was planning to use her song as a weapon, she was just surprised that the Russians had done so first and despite her bedroom stooge's poor attempts at preventing it, had succeeded. Unfortunately, they just created a weapon to hand over to an insane Memaid.
  17. Damn, you know you're up shit's creek if Xander is the only one with any sense. The Dumb and Dumber crew are now only half dumb. Sorry Janine, you lost the door prize. I'm actually fine with Ben and Ryn alone. Maddie decided to get all weird and trip out over what Ben did with the reporters, which is still a puzzle. What did she expect anyone to do to a man who kidnapped a woman you love, was going to reveal her presence to the world and oh yeah, tried to run you over on the road? Of course you let him die. Ian so much as committed suicide by kidnapping an unconscious Ryn. Sorry, Bro, ya fucked up. Ben did test my belief in his sanity when he dug up that half-transformed mermaid to run his experiments on and he didn't see how hypocritical he was for complaining about the military doing the same thing. Now Maddie getting weirded out was just a plot device to split the thruple and give us this small aquatic transformation in Ben and the Thruple, now a rather obviously in love, couple, as they literally got married this episode. What does the gaining of gills matter when you can spend time with your Mermaid wife down under. I'm loving this new direction the show has taken. They're embracing this Climate Change crisis and incorporating it as part of the show, as it should be. The MerPeople aren't the only ones suffering under climate change. Good for Freeform, for still pushing the envelope
  18. Gotta whole lot of catching up to do. Don't remember how many botched weddings I've missed so far. Must set my calendar <dragging feet>. Think Martha's shrill yell, "Move it, Buddy!" And with that, glad to see some regular posters here. Warms my heart.
  19. I can see why some would believe that, but to me, the difference is very slight. Just your acceptance of the action. If someone was trying to harm/kill a loved one and by some fluke got entangled in such a situation, I would be torn either way, but if left to die by me or someone else, I cannot blame anyone for not saving them.
  20. She should make a special tribute to air on all Cloud 9 TV's simultaneously, much like the Amy/Jonah Tornado Kiss.
  21. As I said, I'm new to this series, it's funny and I like the lead, even though I've never seen a single episode of "Ugly Betty" before. Anyway, I decided to make the leap and watch America's previous work and while I was watching, I began to see some crucial direction changes that's making this show weird. in "Ugly Betty" everybody progressed forwards, whereas in "Superstore" nobody progresses forward, everybody goes backwards, (even Amy has gone backwards). I think somebody upthread mentioned that nobody (or practically nobody) succeeded after they left this Cloud 9 branch; perhaps it's more of a hive-mind mentality that seems to slow everybody down from gaining anything in that dismal workplace. If, you're so fucking lazy and twisted as to "rent" some suit and work him into the ground doing your job, then there's no hope for these people. The guy was complaining about his spine, and Garrett, who is in a wheelchair, was fine with that whole scenario? That's not the Garrett I thought I knew. (But then again, the birds......) Just thinking about this motley crew and I don't see much hope for mankind if this is what we're producing. I don't think Marcus is even human. The man stomps his shit down the shower drain, for fucks sake! The man is either a product of excessing inbreeding, or "He ain't right in the head"; it's probably both. Judging by the major EWWW fact of him and Justine banging, as distant cousins. If Climate Change doesn't kill us, stupidity will, if these people were even real and not just the screwed up squawking of some weird writers.
  22. I really don't see Garrett pining for Dina. Why would he want to go back to her? Garrett is an intelligent, if maybe too attached to sneakers, otherwise normal guy. Why waste your time with Dina? She's rude, crude, and WAY too bossy. She thinks she's an ideal catch, and doesn't really have many normal human emotions. I'm surprised they got together in the first place, and I really don't see why Garrett would want to revisit that relationship. If Garrett had any game, he would go after the cutie-pie Sarah (played by Selisha Shertick), who in the earlier seasons, they found a way to have her included in the background of nearly every single scene, but now, not so much. I think Dina, who obviously thinks all men are after her, is imagining Garrett still trying to get back with her. With all things Dina, it's all in her head.
  23. @Irlandesa Thank you for the clarification. I wasn't sure what the final determination was for psychiatric breakdowns as a disability. To be frank, I wasn't sure if the ADA issue was in reference to Carol's mental state or Sandra's. I don't think it's ever been brought up, but clearly Sandra is "Iffy" mentally. So, it could have gone either way.
  24. Having been retired for a decade, I'm unsure of the complexities of the Americans with Disability Act, so, I'm not sure who is the ADA protecting in this situation? Since Carol probably had to undergo some Anger Management therapy, or sessions with a therapist, and Sandra is well, Sandra. Where does the ADA come in?
  25. One of the best episodes of the season. Everything was funny, even Ter-ry, the character, not the name although Rosa is quickly becoming my favorite on the show.
