The overnight ratings are in for the fifth episode of Shadowhunters.

Shadowhunters airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Freeform.
I’m glad to see the ratings go up again. People need to give the series more of a chance. It’s still early days and series take time to develop and the characters and relationships to develop as well. What people need to realise is that no book adaptation is ever page for page or word for word. They always make changes. You look at The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars, they are NOTHING like the books and the characters look nothing like the book characters descriptions. We’ll never see City of Ashes brought to life if we don’t give the tv series more of a chance. The only thing I personally would really like to see changed is all the extra people in the institute and the high tech stuff got rid of!
I think that’s good news! People must be adapting to/accepting the changes (I know I have) and Izzy’s been my biggest issue…it just me or are they toning down her flirtatiousness a bit, as well as starting to give her somewhat less revealing clothes?
I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but I’m loving the show. Yes, the actings pretty bad, and the plot got flipped on its head… Oh, and Valentine looks like a European gigalow… but I’m loving it. Most first seasons of any show are a bit rocky. In my humble opinion I think the actors need to dial the angst down, just a smidge. Jace has completely lost his lazy snark. That’s what we initially loved about his character. Dial down the angst and frenzied running around. Let their characters evolve instead of push it. The writers are to blame.
This episode was the best paced so far. It felt far more fluid. Happy about that.
I know this has nothing to do with ratings, but is the recap for episode five going to be up soon? 😕
It just got published.
Ratings may not look great in comparision to other bigger shows out there but compared to only Freeform shows it is only being beaten by Pretty Little Liars which I think is quite good going! Fingers crossed for season two, shows always get better after the first season…
