Will not talk about Emeurade Tobias, awesome girl who portrayed her on Shadowhunters TV, mostly because Izzy’s story on the show was so completely weird, and twisted at various points, they changed the character.
But in the books? Warrior. A great role-model. Funny. Compassionate. Passionate. Hot. I mean, Izzy is one of the first characters you fall for in the books, even before, Alec and Jace, or Clary, who I didn’t like very much at first.
There are so many moments in this one, I will try to be organised and direct.
If you have not read any of the books in the Shadow World, specially The Mortal Instruments, then I seriously recommend that you first read those and then this one, and if you do not know what this one is about or who is the main character, then please stop reading this, because it contains spoilers for those who are new to the Shadowhunters world. That said, welcome and I hope you share my thoughts on this one.
If you have not read The Mortal Instruments books from City of Glass onward then please restrain yourself from reading this post… it is so full of spoilers that you might have no need of reading the books to know one of the most psychotic characters ever created in the Shadow World. Kudos to Cassie Clare for having such imagination as to come up with Sebastian.
Alright you have been warned, and I am to assume you will know what I’m about to talk about or simply don’t care about the spoiler alert I just gave! Once more, Spoilers ahead. By the Angel! Read knowing that I tried to warn you. Continue reading →
Well, the first season of Shadowhunters is done but that does not mean we are less excited about the next one then we were when they announced they would actually make one a month or so ago.
So many things to say, so little time… wait? Hold on a moment! I can say whatever I want there is no limit to my rambling here, and if you have read my other posts you might know this, so get ready! If you have no read the books, I suggest you don’t read this post, because there might be some reference (probably a lot of them) to them. About last episode of Shadowhunters TV I can tell you right now, that I liked it enough, even though there were way too many things that they should not have showed and others that they quite not explained.
Alright my lovelies, my fellow shadowhunters (lads and lasses alike) let’s get started…
Let’s do this while it is still fresh… my sole reaction to THAT moment in the latest episode of Shadowhunters was… Oh. My. God!
As for the rest I was still in shock but the excitement was still there.
Now, let us retreat a little in time to the other episodes, I know I haven’t posted much about the rest, but I was really busy… Simon, is already a vampire, that is kind of fast… Alec proposing to someone who does not exist was a bit crazy, the world inverted was kind of cool but still out of this world (no joke intended)… and I think it will give the producers of the show something to go on for when they get to more exciting things, like what happens in book 5 and when they introduce us Sebastian. Spoiler much? Not really, if you are a fan of the saga then you know what I am talking about.
I work and couldn’t get this posted each week, I’m sorry about it, everyone.
Alright, that said… let us talk about Shadowhunters so far.
Where to start? I have no idea, I’m a total blank, all I can think about is that I like it so far, and Jace is starting to be more like Jace, sometimes at least, I told you that Dominic might grow on me, didn’t I? I think I did…
I love Harry Shum Jr, but it is Matthew Daddario who is having everyone watching the show, he is so damn gorgeous, and he does a great Alec, I truly can’t wait until THE episode comes out, all the fans of the book know what I’m talking about.
So, here we are once again. I cannot keep it to myself… but don’t worry this one will be short.
Alright… I’m going to say it, I love the show, I admit it but why do they have to do unnecessary changes? I don’t understand! Camille a brunet? Come on! She is blond with green eyes, is that so difficult? Hey, the actress is good and all, but it’s the details people, the details.
Simon, Simon… I can’t say anything that I haven’t already, to me that character is nearly nonexistent, yes, he does stuff in the books, and he is important and what is coming his way, well, we all know where it is heading, if you read the books you know what I’m saying, if not, is pretty obvious. But the point here is, that he is in the scene and I feel like I should like him or have some sort of affinity but I really don’t.
First off, I love Matthew Daddario, I thought that Kevin Z was Alec, but Matthew gives another meaning to bringing to life a character from a book, he studied Alec, you can tell by the way he acts (and if he didn’t then he wings it to perfection), and it is not just that he is a good enough actor, no, you actually believe Alec is there, just like Emeraude Toubia does Izzy, haven’t seen much of it, but the bits and parts of it, she gets the idea and she looks the part as well.
Yes, we are first talking about the actors and actresses, don’t worry, I’ll get to the good stuff soon enough. Carrying on with Alberto Rosende, so, he kind of is Simon but I personally am not a fan, yet. Wasn’t a fan of Simon in the books but hey, that is my personal prerogative. And maybe that is why I simply ignore Simon in the show because in the books that is what I did. Sorry, guys!
I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…
Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…
