Just finished watching Sirens. In one word: brilliant.
I don’t normally watch comedies, they’re not really my thing. However, in this case, I’ll make an exception. I really loved Tom Reynold’s books (Blood, Sweat and Tea, and More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea), and the his inspiration in the program is clear. And let’s be honest, I’m an ambulance geek, and likely always will be.
I can sympathise, a little, with the episode as well. Not the ‘up, horny, down’ bit so much, but definitely the adrenaline. When the hormones are thudding in your brain, it is a struggle to think straight, let alone try to remember precisely what it was I was supposed to be doing with this combination of signs and symptoms.
And, afterwards, when your system clears, and your hands shake, and you wonder whether what you did was the right thing. Perhaps I skip straight to the down…
Either way: I’ll be making a point of catching Sirens again next week. And if you missed it, it’s on 4oD:
Watch out though, the language is strong and ‘adult themes’ is not wrong.
