Mako Mermaids Season 1 Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The mermaids are back but with new characters with small links to the old cast. Location is the same which makes it an easier transition. I still love this series. It is fun and cute and well can I get to be a mermaid too?

If you could be a mermaid, what color tail would you want?
