Why hello fellow booknerdigans!
Today I am coming at you with a TV show review! Deanna is the broadway girl why I alas am the TV addict girl. SAME TO SAME! So Shadowhunters…I have posted a few posts here and there with some news about this show. Ever since I got the news that this show was actually happening you know I’m going to be excited.
Even though I love movies and TV shows I am not a good critic whatsoever. I say if I like it or if I don’t and then a few details here and there, so when the movie came out in 2013 I was “eh” I didn’t hate it. Some parts of it I actually enjoyed, the main problem was, was that I didn’t like the entire cast for the movie. NONE THE LESS! We are hear to talk about the TV show!
I have been counting down the days till the premiere and to be completely honest with you guys I was VERY open minded about the TV show. I already knew based on past experiences that it wasn’t going to be EXACTLY like the book. I put that behind me and instead I envisioned that my all time favorite book series was going to be on the TV screen. AND THAT IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO! If you have been scared or nervous about watching the premiere I am telling you to give it a chance. Already warning you that it doesn’t follow the exact plot of the book, but which tv/movie adaptation does?
CAST: I love the cast. The cast is what made me so excited for this show. I’ll go through each and every one of the characters but all in all A+
Clary: I have already seen Kat Mcnamara in a few roles, and most of them were those snobby rich girls roles so I never seen her play a genuine nice girl like Clary. I think she fits of Clary perfectly, I think that she expressed her feelings beautifully and yes I do think that there are things that can be adjusted but ITS THE FIRST TWO EPISODES! Practice makes perfect.
Jace: Dom is Jace, but Dom needs to act more like Jace. Jace isn’t really connected or attatched to Clary until maybe 3/4 into the book, and in the first episode he holds her hand. NUH UH! Give some room for character development. I know that it isn’t going to be exactly like the book but there should be some resemblance in personalities.
Simon: PERFECT! HE IS FREAKING PERFECT! I have no complaints whatsoever about Simon! His lines were over the top hilarious, and I love every single bit of him! ALBERTO YOU ARE SIMON!
Izzy: I love Izzy, she is so beautiful and Izzy like. I like how instead of being very hostile towards Clary she is like a best friend in a way. Can’t wait to see what she bring to hot!
You’re welcome. So freaking beautiful. I love Matthew as Alec. I think he plays the part PERFECTLY, and even if he didn’t…he has a real nice face.
BEHIND THE SCENES: I thought that the special effects were really well made, the only complaint that I have is that the sound effects could be improved, and of course WHY IS THERE SO MANY PEOPLE AT THE INSTITUTE?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!??
ALL IN ALL! I would really really REALLY say for y’all to give this show a try! Remember only the first two episodes are out! We still have an entire season for this to grow! If you have watched it, tell me what you thought of it! Did you like it? You weren’t a fan? You hav evidence that Matthew Daddario is really a angel? TELL ME!
