Remember The Little Mermaid? It’s a sweet movie about a mermaid falling in love with a human. Cute, right? Well, Tidelands is the grittier distant (and I mean distant) cousin of The Little Mermaid. Instead of mermaids, Netflix decided to dish out a series about the children of sirens — mythical women who live under the sea and lure men to their death by entrancing them with their singing — in Australia.
Tidelands takes place in a small fishing town in Queensland, Australia, populated by the fishing folk and the reclusive Tidelander community.
