Silkies are seals who can shed their skin and walk the earth as women. If they want, they can slip back into their sealskin and become water creatures again. I saw The Secret of Roan Inish, a favorite movie, in which the skin literally looked like a seal that you had to climb into like a tight dress. That seemed reasonable as a viewer. Then I saw Lost Girl, where the sealskin was just a hunk of folded fur that you clutched next to yourself as you entered the ocean. That doesn’t seem reasonable as a viewer. I’m willing to make allowances – willing suspension of disbelief and all that – but at least make it sensible, people.
