Goofs

Emma, Rikki, and Cleo (and later Bella) all wish to keep their identities as mermaids secret due to various risks such as being captured for lab experiments or zoo exhibits if the wrong people find out. Yet these characters repeatedly discuss being mermaids and factors related to it, such as Mako Island, in public areas like the cafe where anyone can just walk past and hear them saying that they're mermaids.

Genuine fun, in a cute package!
20 July 2009 | by blueyedsunsetSee all my reviews

Though I should be embarrassed to say that at 18 I watch a television show marketed for tweens, I'm not. H2O: Just Add Water is quality entertainment.

The storyline, though not entirely lacking in plot holes, is well thought out and attention catching. I've scoured the internet on more than one occasion in the attempts of finding the next episodes and I'm mildly heartbroken about the current state of Season 3. I cannot help but remain interested in whatever might be happening in "mermaid land" The acting is certainly not that of Kate Winslet or George Clooney but as far as the small screen goes the skills of the young cast are enviable. Phoebe Tonkin (Cleo), Cariba Heine (Rikki), and Claire Holt (Emma) are the three headliners. They portray their roles as not only mermaids but best friends in a believable and touching way--and manage to convey turmoil in their relationships with each other but significant others as well. We often see Angus McLaren (Lewis) and Burgess Abernethy (Zane) throughout the series and they too are welcome characters. Both portray teens with real personality flaws and remain an area of interest.

Certainly the series isn't without its flaws but it's a cute show that will keep you entertained. I'll definitely continue watching for as long as it runs.
