Good Cop, Bad Cop: Fans React to the ‘Shadowhunters’ Premiere

SHADOWHUNTERS - “The Mortal Cup” - One young woman realizes how dark the city can really be when she learns the truth about her past in the series premiere of "Shadowhunters" on Tuesday, January 12th at 9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT. ABC Family is becoming Freeform in January 2016. 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.

Now that Shadowhunters has finally premiered — and to good ratings! — we decided to take a look at how the fandom has reacted to the pilot. We combed through Twitter to see how the fans were reacting.

There was a lot of good reactions and bad reactions. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion and we enjoyed seeing varying reactions to the pilot as it shows just how invested these fans are in this story coming to life and how passionate they are with these books and show.

The raves had a focus on the cast and the world coming to life. The rants had a lot to do with the deviation from the books and the writing of the script.
