I have a confession to make.
I watched the first episode of the “Shadowhunters”, a TV show base on Cassandra Clare’s book series The Mortal Instruments. I hated it.
I had to stop halfway (or less) through because I didn’t feel good watching the rest. At first I was feeling good, even though there were some changes in a few characters like Lukebeing a cop, Dorothea being a skinny young woman and Maureen being good friends with Simon and Clary… But the other characters made me feel pretty confident, I felt like this Clary sounded like the Clary from the books and so did Simon and Jocelyn, I was happy about that.
What made me pause the episode and close my browser window then? The Institute… In my mind I pictured it like an old big building, from the time when Will Herondale, James Carstairs and Tessa Gray lived their first adventure together. Not a mix between Star Wars and 007 or Batman… The moment I saw Izzy, Jace and Alec walking around a place so artificial, and so brighty and so… not homie I had to stop watching. I love the world the books created in my mind too much to let the show ruin it for me.
Did any of you guys watched it yet? How did you feel about it? Tell me everything in the comment section below!
