  1. Is that good or bad?

    • Yup it’s pretty good, differs from the books here and there but not enough that its horrid and the changes they have made are done quite well so far.

      • They were talking about the ratings, not the quality of the show.

        Though the ratings and the show do have one thing in common. They’re bad.

    • Personally I think it’s quite bad. I’m not a fan of how cheap the sets looks or the overacting or the over sexualization that this episode was overstuffed with, The dialouge is pretty awful at times as well.
      But I have to say that Isabelle is completely brilliant, she is by far my favourite and I didn’t even like her that much when I read the books.
      I wouldn’t recommend this show to anyone, unless you want a good laugh at the expense of it.

    • It’s bad. The International Business Times wrote this after episode 2 aired:

      “Freeform’s “Shadowhunters” drew a 0.41 adults 18-49 rating and 1.006 million total viewers this week. The numbers are too bad for a cable show. The week-by-week dip in numbers might affect the new show in the long run.”

    I’m sad that the show isn’t getting that good ratings, but I don’t like the show that much…
    I think I’ll just stick to the movie (I liked it more) and the books (Lady Midnight’s coming out soon! In like a month or so)

    • I can easily say that the movie was ten million times worse than the tv show. There is no way they can stay completely accurate to the books in the show, and right now they are doing a remarkable job, considering that this has to appeal to all audiences, not just the readers.

      • Why compare it to the movie? They are both bad. The movie’s faults do not excuse the television show’s.

        No one is complaining the show isn’t accurate to the books. It is a tiresome mischaracterization of everyone who doesn’t like the show to decide that the problem is that they all want absolutely fidelity to every word of the book. The show is hateful because it is stupid, offensive, illogical, badly written, and has wretched dialogue.

        It also seems unlikely they are doing a good job considering the precipitous drop in ratings. If they were doing a good job, wouldn’t people be actually watching?

    • I know, the show is terrible! I love the movie though, and really am just watching the show while I wait for Lady Midnight. I bought it as a birthday gift to myself!

  3. I don’t tbink Shadowhunters could be compared to Teen Wolf. It’s misleading. Teen Wolf is in its 5th season and numbers sometimes fall when a tv show has been around for a while, especially when many of their main cast left. Instead compare Shadowhunters to new tv shows or if compare to veteran tv shows then look at their first season. That’s more accurate.

  4. Considering how Shadowhunters is going, how on earth did it beat out Teen Wolf? I’m honestly considering not watching show anymore because of how bad they portrayed it. I’m am so disappointed in this series.
    Still in love with the books tho. Thinking of rereading them just to get my own little show going on in my head ☺️

    • Shadowhunters beat Teen Wolf because Teen Wolf has been exceptionally low rating in its 6th season. Teen Wolf currently has only half the viewers it had in its peak.

  5. I can’t watch it live I have to wait till the next day for Netflix to put it up then I watch right away

  6. it makes me even more disappointed every new episode. I’m in love with the books but the series is terrible. well the movie but decent the most of the fans who read books didn’t like it. at least the crew’s acting was quite good. kat mcnamara’s acting is horrible. she can’t act. i hope she get better. ps i really wanna see the arguments between jace and clary. and izzy is not that flirtatious stop making look her like slut

  7. Oh-oh! I’m not a big fan of what they’re doing so far but I do want to see at least a second season of the show. The first book wasn’t the best one in the series and I’ve had the chance to watch it on screen twice. It’s not fair we don´t get to see the rest of the story, not even once.

    • It’s not fair, but it’s also Ed Decter’s fault. If people want to see a second season they should be mobilizing to get rid of the current showrunner and replace him with a new one who can retool the show and launch a better second season. It’s the only chance the show has.

      • What the show needs is a completely new cast. The people who are making the show are only part of it. The only hope the show really has is for every single aspect to be completely redone, cast and all. Then we call in a good director once we actually have a cast who’s acting is worth watching. The movie, in my opinion, was absolutely perfect when compared to the TV show. Not only that, but there was not only a very good director for it, but also an excellent cast. When the movie/TV show is done, we are not only seeing the good plot line and setting, but we are seeing, more importantly, the cast. Are the director’s the ones acting? No. The cast is. Everything about the show is messed up, and they lied to us when they said that they would be true to the books . If you weren’t going to be true to the show, why say so? If they were going to change so many things, why make a TV show based on a book series? I will tell you: because there are complete idiots making TV shows nowadays that have no business doing so. They’re simply out of ideas and decided to lie their way into getting rights to make this show. But now they’ve just kept the shell, and killed off everything else. All they care about is sex, and making us women look bad. Judging by your past comments, you clearly aren’t bothered by what they have done to strong female characters, and us decent women. Maybe you aren’t a decent woman. Not being rude, just stating facts.

      • The cast is not the problem, at least not the main one. Given the horrific material they have to work with, you can’t tell if they can act or not. The obsession with actors is a common fan obsession, but they’re actually secondary to the writing on a show. Even brilliant actors cannot lift garbage dialogue and trash writing, and all that would happen would be they’d be dragged down too.

        Also, no show will ever recast the entire cast. It simply will not happen. But it is very common to replace a show runner. Happens all the time. Why not mobilize to make something actually possible happen?

        “Everything about the show is messed up, and they lied to us when they said that they would be true to the books . If you weren’t going to be true to the show, why say so? If they were going to change so many things, why make a TV show based on a book series?”

        I agree with you but none of that has anything to do with the cast. They’re acting the way they were told to act and saying the lines that are written for them. Why are you complaining about the cast when your actual issues are all with the writing?

        Not sure where you got the idea I support their destruction of the strong female characters from the books, either. I deplore it. I just also think the movie was lousy, and Harald Zwart was not a good director. Have you seen the list of the other films he’s made? Trash. Why they hired him and not anyone with talent is a mystery. He destroyed that film the same way Ed Decter is destroying the TV show. The issue is not and never has been either cast.

      • You carry an excellent point. Also, I am very glad that I am not the only one who thinks the female characters have been ruined. Sorry for the false accusing.

        While I agree that the cast is not the only problem (its everything about the TV show really), I do not think that the casting for the show was that great. Of course I knew that they wouldn’t get the cast for the movie for the show (huge movie stars all coming together for a TV show? not likely), but still they should have looked harder for a proper cast that could actually pass for the characters they’re playing.

        Also, I agree with you on the Herald Zwart films, all accept City of Bones (despite being very much different from the books, but still so true to the books compared to the TV show) and The Karate Kid. I think that the TV show’s director is even worse than Zwart. Ed Decter is a terrible director and I agree a knew one should be brought in.

        Again, sorry for the false accusation.

        Toodles!

  8. I like the production of the series but I truly believe its weak point is the actors – Clary is played by a pretty girl who treats the role as a high school play and the young man who plays Jace is a good actor on the one hand but nothing compared to the darkness and depth Jamie Cambell Bower had given to the role. If only we could see this year’s production with the old cast! Finally, I must say that the actors playing the other characters look and sound very convincing but to honour the book we must believe in the two protagonists too…

  9. I think they should have the old cast for the tv show ( because I loved them obviously) and that they should make a sequel. and for all the people saying the movie was worse than the tv show they can go and do one. the movie was brilliant and it deserves a sequel. nothing to say about the show other than its………… absolutely rubbish, the dialogue is awful, and they cant replace the original cast!!!!! very very very over-dramatic and they have messed up some major details from the book. SINCE WHEN IS VALENTINE BALD?!?!?!?!?! SINCE WHEN DID VALENTINE AND HIS MINIONS STAY HIDDEN IN AN ABBADON NUCLEAR PLANT?!?!?!!? WHERE THE FUCK IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEEN MAGNUS AND ALEC?!?!?!?! WHERE IS JACE’S SEDUCTIVE AND SELF-POSSED PERSONALITY?!?!?!?! WHY IS CLARYS HAIR GINGER?!?!?!?! just some questions. (not all) I think we should all protest and demand a sequel for the movie.
