Shadowhunters: "The Mortal Cup" (Ep. 1)

Release Date: January 12, 2015
As you can see, I was geeking out.
But okay, I'll be honest, they definitely could have picked a better Jace Herondale... He just doesn't fit my standards. But he is attractive in his own way. In all reality, I think that Shadowhunters couldn't be farther from the books. They inserted the scenes in places where they should have occurred later on.

This show is definitely not the strongest transition between books to tv. It didn't even have a strong transition from book to movie. Which is sad because it was one of the most anticipated shows of the year.

But who am I to decide where the scenes go because don't get me wrong, the show was alright because it somewhat accurately portrayed each of the characters.

Jace: His fascination with Clary.
Clary: Her love of art, family, and friends.
Jocelyn: Her protectiveness.
Luke: His affections.
Simon: His secret affections for Clary, oblivious to other women.
Isabelle: Her rambunctious affections to piss off her parents.
Alec: His animosity towards mundanes.

By the way, I pretty much yelled at my screen the entire time during this whole show because of the fact that everything was a bit off for me. Especially this one part where they completely screwed up the entire process. So WTF.

Clary has turned 18. Adult biologically and genetically, or so she says. But when she turned 18, her whole life turned to shite. She looks clinically insane in her friends eyes. When she meets Jace, the void in her life is filled with the curiosity to know more about him. To navigate this world, she will need the help of Jace, Isabelle, and Alec. 

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Recap: 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.
