Sirens: Season 1 (2014)




Critic Consensus: Though the characters are typical and the humor often dumb, Denis Leary's Sirens thrives on well-written scripts and likable performances.

Tv Season Info

This comedy, loosely based on the British series of the same name, follows three Chicago EMT paramedics: Johnny (Michael Mosely); Hank (Kevin Daniels), Johnny's openly gay paramedic partner and longtime friend; and Brian (Kevin Bigley), a new paramedic recruit. In Season 1, Brian begins his job in the ambulance, Hank's fear of spiders brings out others' fears and Johnny romantically pursues Theresa (Jessica McNamee), a Chicago patrol officer. Along the way, the guys must choose between volunteering to teach kids CPR or attending a Chicago Bears game, face a married man who wants them to clear his Internet history and recall strange events for potential new recruits.

Critic Reviews for Sirens: Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12)

Leary's last show, Rescue Me, worked because it never lost the humanity. The task for Sirens, which will take a few weeks, is to establish it.

Unlike most men-will-be-boys comedies, it has a well-crafted script that doesn't imitate its subjects' aimlessness and low standards.

At its best is dumb fun. Johnny, Hank and rookie EMT Brian of course keep making a fine mess of things. They also mesh together pretty well in a series that bracingly is without a detracting laugh track.

Overtones of Rescue Me, absent the wit and bite.

This is a substantial show already helmed by a likable group of actors.

Despite a talented cast and Leary's comic chops, Sirens fails to reach its potential.
