GUYSSS!!! It’s finally out!
I had to watch it today on Freeform’s website because I just came back from my month long
vacation frolicking adventure in Colombia.
“Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend, Simon, in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother.
Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke, who knows more than he is letting on, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane, who could hold the key to unlocking Clary’s past.”
I’ve read A LOT of praise and criticism. I think a huge issue is that people thinks it’s straying too much from the books… which it does. This TV show is admitted as a loose interpretation of Clare’s Mortal Instruments series. With that being said, I like it! Mind you, some of the scene’s are laugh worthy because of how poorly done they are:
And there are also some super funny moments
Simon: “Where are you? Find My Friends says your phone is in an abandoned church on Dighton. I’m outside.”
Clary: “I see you.”
Simon: “I don’t see you”
Clary: “Give me five minutes I have to put on some clothes get dressed”
Simon: “Dressed? What do you mean get dressed? Clary, is there a meth problem we need to talk about?”
I find myself comparing the acting/actors to their counterparts in the Mortal Instruments movie, which is kind of frustrating because although the movie was bad I still kind of loved it. I liked the movie’s Clary Fray A LOT, but I’m starting to like the TV one.
I’m really excited to see where they go with the next episode. Eeeeeek. n___n
