So, I started watching the Shadowhunters TV show and got all caught up in 2 days! You might be thinking, “So?”, well this is big for me. It’s been YEARS like many years since I last watched a current show. Also, I have commitment issues and tend to start shows but never finish them.
I decided to watch the show before reading the books. I have a feeling, based on the trailer, that if I watched the show after reading the books, I wouldn’t like it much.
So far it’s alright. It’s not amazing and sometimes the acting is a bit awkward, but it’s not bad. I’m enjoying it. Also, Alec is beautiful, like hot damn! He’s hot. I think the biggest reason I’ll continue watching the show is because I want to know what happens with Alec and Magnus.
I was a little surprised at how sexualized Izzy is. Is she like that in the books? I just sort of assumed that it was geared towards a younger audience being ABC Family and all, but now I realize that it’s rated 16+.
Have you watched the show? What are your thoughts?
