My Fascination with Fiction (Books,TV Shows, Movies, etc.)

EDIT: This post (along with a few others) were supposed to be published throughout last week because I pre-wrote  and scheduled them, but silly me didn’t hit the save/confirm button when setting the date. So sorry for the unintentional absence.

Since I can remember, I have always been entranced with stories whether they were books or movies or even TV shows. I love all of these mediums because they each offer something different.  Continue reading “My Fascination with Fiction (Books,TV Shows, Movies, etc.)”

Shadowhunters TV Show Reactions

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably heard that Cassandra Clare’s bestselling series The Mortal Instruments is now a TV show. The pilot episode aired last night on ABC Family (now called Freeform), and I have tons to say about it!

This is my first time watching a book adapted TV show, so even though The Mortal instruments isn’t my ~favorite~, I was still really excited to see how it went. And boy, did it go well! I have not seen anyone else and their thoughts on the show yet, but I loved it! It has a great take on the story and I am pumped to see where it goes from here. Here is a list of some of my thoughts/things I liked.

  • Clary is exactly, to the tee, how I imagined her.
  • I thought movie Simon would be the best, but TV Simon is giving him a run for his money
  • This invisibility stuff is hilarious
  • “Simon, how can you not tell that she is crushing on you” CLARY DO YOU NOT SEE THE WAY HE IS LOOKING AT YOU
  • I thought you actually had to draw with the steele, but how it just appears is cool too
  • MAGNUS
  • Jace, Izzy, and Alec = Perfection
  • Seriously, these characters are exactly how I pictured them?
  • MAGNUS
  • The demons don’t look too cheesy so yay
  • Where is the cup??
  • Intense fighting scene
  • Alec is angry at Jace now, so this is pretty accurate
  • “You are interesting”

I really can’t explain why I am liking this so much. It just looks really cool, like the institute is really different from I imagine, but I’m loving it. Plus these people aren’t talking in British accents, so everything is better.

DId you watch the premiere episode? How did you like it?
