Fairly good TV - better than most
I like it - fresh new idea. Mermaids and marine biologists wrestling with fishermen and big gubm'nt dudes. It's pretty good. Not the best but by FAR not the worst.
It is written for a younger audience. I like the protagonists and I particularly like having a mixed race couple - and an older woman as main characters. Several African American actors - I like seeing people besides white (MY race) get work. I grew up in the civil rights movement era, so I notice things like that. I always appreciate a multiracial cast - like life!
One thing that bugs me is the face sucking. Maybe because I'm older - I just don't see how that drives the story. It annoys me. Am I a grumpy oldster? Quite possibly. But it does seem like they have too much of that - I imagine the writers trying to fill the minutes perfectly to fit that time slot and so throw a makeout session in there to make the time fit perfectly. It does nothing for the plot.
Overall, I like it. I do appreciate the strength and fierce nature of the mermaids - adds dimension to the story. I vote it a good show for watching while you are doing mindless busywork, but I wouldn't sit down JUST to watch it.
