    It’s not exactly groundbreaking, but it’s fun to watch and slightly addictive.

  • Christopher Muther

    There is no mistaking that this is a bromedy. But this is a smart bromedy. Ladies, don’t be afraid to watch. Out of the gate, Leary creates characters that are identifiable and likable.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    Mosley, Kevin Daniels, and Kevin Bigley play Chicago EMTs in this promising show, which is more comedically broad than Leary's Rescue Me and much raunchier than your average USA series. [7 Mar 2014, p.61]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Sirens is a better than expected offering and probably better than the kickback it’s likely to get when it comes to faulty memories and dusty legacies.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    The humor's as broad as Lake Michigan, but when Sirens wades in a little deeper, as it occasionally does, it sometimes manages to be even funnier.

  • Rob Owen

    Later episodes are funny enough. Perhaps it’s just the usual early episode growing pains.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Mosley and Daniels bring an easygoing banter to the central roles, and the series has considerable fun with the bluer aspects of the job. That said, the show’s preoccupation with below-the-belt comedy risks growing a trifle tedious even after the three previewed episodes.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    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.

  • Lori Rackl

    The man-banter humor and language in Sirens can be jarringly crass at times--an unexpected pothole hit while cruising along with these generally likable characters.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    The show's younger stars all are personable, if not yet exactly memorable, and all told, their show is an agreeable, mildly amusing time-passer.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    At its best, Sirens has some of the emotional and comedic recklessness and shock of his FX comedy about firefighters, Rescue Me. Sirens needs to howl a little more. [10 Mar 2014]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The humor is smart-ish and has more bite and suggestive raunch than you’d expect.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    The discussions at times feel Seinfeldian, tempered with Leary’s fondness for outrage, darkness and absurdity. 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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    The comedy is “Rescue Me”-like, but lighter, with less angst.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Johnny is easily a Leary/Tommy Gavin stand-in, 
Theresa is Janet (Andrea Roth) with a badge, and Bigley could be Mike Silletti’s (Mike Lombardi) brother. Don’t bother with the alarm. When it comes to 
Sirens, you know this drill.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The characters are charming and likable, but the show is strangely humor-challenged.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    Sirens stands at the far end of a current spectrum in which jokes are considered too obvious and old-fashioned a way of getting laughs. Unfortunately, the show doesn’t replace them with funny circumstances or characters we care about.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Overtones of "Rescue Me," absent the wit and bite.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Confusing tastelessness and cheap profanity with actual humor, this misfire from executive producer Denis Leary feels like a series of limp outtakes from the more daring Rescue Me.
