Jazz2911 and DarkRose26 yeah I agree-the movie and books were good, but this series kinda sucks and the actress who plays clary was not cut out for this role at all.
SPOILER ALERT !!oops wrote it on the wrong message board but yea they are not related they dont find out for like 2 books in the series but yea
Love the series, but there is a thing that keeps bugging me, Jace can't be Val and Jocelyn's son because h's blonde and neather of the parents are, plus he has heterocromia that is transmited geneticly, so it's impossible for Clary and Jace to have at least the same mother
loved the books and the movie so thought I would give this a go. watched all of season 1 and just didn't like it. the acting was bad and the whole plot was completely different from the books and the movie. sorry, just my opinion but I just don't like it.
Forgot to mention the geniuses this idea game from, directors, producers etc, but of course the genius behind it all, Cassandra Clare. Congrats to them amazing people too.
I like the show, I like the characters and I like the story line. I mean they do have they're not so good moments, every show does. But I think this show is good at making up for it. Congrats to all the actors.
eventhough most people think the acting is not very good..but would't be interesting when you can watch a show that comes from books you read....honestly..i havent read the book...but my opinion this shows interesting to watch btw :)
just really really bad acting, the story line is rubbish. Even movie was better!!!!!!!!!!
i am really trying so hard to like it but...i just cant. They should have kept the story in the book
I loved the books and even tho the movie wasn't exactly like the books i also loved that one. When they said they were going to make a serie out of it i was overjoyed. To bad the casting sucks, the storyline sucks and the graphics suck! I dont know how this got a season 2 and devious maids was cancelled. And clary....... i mean just dont! Of all the actors in the show she is the worst!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shadowhunters is one of the most amazing show that I have ever seen. The actors know what they are doing and I believe that the hole cast and crewhave done and are doing an amazing job with this show.
This is the worst acting ever. Even the actors are shit. I am so disappointed because I loved the books soooo much, and when this came out I was excited, but now I am so sad that this is what they came up with. I love TMI but this series is too horrible. I couldn't even finish the first episode. No offence to the people who actually like this.
Horrible acting, Character placement leaves a lot to be desired for. Storyline is good, if you can get past the acting and bad casting.
nevertheless learn how to spell then get back to me or come to belfast so i can put a bullet in you.
TMC in fact from now on i'm only gonna watch show on this very site and enjoy myself so knock yourself out this is fun
TMC haha funny that u only appear when it's a trash show lol like you oh and i'm not going anywhere so suck it bitch
absolutely hated the books, and despise the author, but absolutely adore the show. poc, lgbt and gender representation is fantastic. the cast care so much about the show, and though the acting was not the best, it improves with every episode. can't wait for the series to continue!
Am sorry but this is so horrible. I stopped the first episode in 5 minute. Am sorry for the people who actually like this show.
I gave up trying to watch the first season because every link I tried had been removed.
Holy.... Okay, I really enjoyed the first episode of the second season. They changed the special effects and the props so they look so much better now. The tone is so much better, and no cringe worthy dialogue this time around. Also, genuine acting from most of the actors. Leagues better than anything in season 1. I feel like it's finally growing into the show I know it can be.
Worst acting i have ever seen in my life its about on the same grade as local car sales commercials.
NO SPOILERS*** Coming from a Mortal Instruments fan, I feel like what i had envisioned when I was reading the book series was more amazing than the actual tv show. I had so much high hopes for the show, but when it came out, i was really disappointed. The drama is just not as interesting. The way they changed things (as what's expected) completely just ruined some very fun moments. I don't like the characters as much, they just don't really act that greatly. I feel like it was very exciting for

Amazing! Absolutely amazing! i LOVE how they have portrayed the characters in the tv series! They still keep the essence of the books, however also adding new and inventive twists that just FURTHER enhances the brilliance of the show. The characters are lovable and the choice of cast was absolutely spot on! They all click really well and mange to portray that onto the screen which gives another level of depth to each of their characters!! Can't wait for season 2!!!!
This is the type of show you want to watch when there's absolutely nothing else on except for the Old Spice guy. The acting is sub-par, not terrible but not quality standard either. There are glimmers of hope towards the end of the series however, as it tends to be fast paced (ideal for binge watching on Netflix, but not for standard episodes on television). Once you know what cast members will fail a scene, you know when to expect some cringe moments. Otherwise, it's a solid show with a solid i
lol book is much better, tho plz I don't believe I'll ever think that but Clace sucks here. Ugh
This show Suuuuuucccckkkksss!!!! Can't believe it got renewed. Hope they got acting lessons.
It is one of THE BEST Series. Ik that Kat's acting is not perfect but if you r a MORTAL INSTRUMENT fan you'll love it!!!!!!!!!!!!
people have to stop saying that Kat is nos as good as the rest because, yes, she's not a perfect actress, but neither are the rest and honestly you can see everyone's evolution throughout the season.
I love this show so much...anyone who love watching fantasy tv shows..try it..its interesting to watch <3
gosh..Jace and Alec so attracted*-*...can't stop watching this shows xD so addicting <3
I m attracted with Jace and Alec *-*..hottie guys <3 btw this shows is creative..i m impressed with the creator of this shows..I havent read any books or watching a movie which is similar to this shows..recommended for those who love watching fantasy and romance..they will be season 2 in next year....it will be great <3 everyone have different opinion with all shows..so one thing to say....try it...might love it more then reading the reviews xD
to all the haters, i ike the series better than the movie and yes ive read the book. the characters are funnier and sure their acting could be better but they are quite new at it so give them a break. plus, dominic sherwwod is better than the actor in the movie
great show, kat is a horrible actress (shes a great person and shes actually super smart but her acting sucks) ,, but its still a p good show and not everyone is white yay
Katherine McNamara (Clary) isn't the worst actor/ess in the show to be fair, but she needs to lose the "Disney-ness" to be a convincing bad-ass. Unsurprisingly, some of her shadow hunting aquantances have voiced their concerns about her presence in their ranks, though none seem worried by the fact that she holds her your sword like it's a handbag, and runs around with it out, a lot, in high heels. She's going to have someone's arm off! Much room for improvement.
Its not bad. But its not great. Most actors are terrible, especially Kat, like i know she can do better. Shes just not meant for a lead role. Its just sad how much FreeForm changed this show from the books. Now i get there will always be changes when its coming from a book. But this is just plain out stupid. Things from the first 4 books are in this one season. And major things too. So how are they gonna work it in for the next several seasons? I just hope season 2 gets better! And more based on
Watching this show I was convinced that this must be the product of a low budget college television project that somehow made it to Netflix. The acting is laughable, so much so that I almost fell off of my couch. Sadly the laughs and tears for poor Cassandra Clare's legacy is that this show has plot holes galore and pretty bad graphics. If it wasn't for the fact that the whole of the story is interesting, I think that I would've stopped watching by the first episode.
I really really Enjoyed these series ! I read the books and watched the movie and i LOVE the TV show ! the characters and the small changes in the scenario , it still surprises me with stuff and im in LOVE with Alec right now !
not bad but not so good either ... if they can do something better that would be good, this series just want to make me want to read the book again instead of watching it, sad :( i hope there would be a good season 2
The story is good and all the actors aren't half bad...except the one acting as clari SHE'S A FRIGGIN' DISASTER!!!! I just couldn't bare watching this series only because of, she messed up the whole clari-vibe. If it weren't for her, I'd actually like this show, like this it's an insult to the book character -_-
Wasn't sure about this show at the beginning, but it picks up a lot around episode 5. Big improvements in quality as well. It's not the best show out there, but definitely isn't as bad as some people are trying to make it seem. I can't wait to see how much it improves for season 2.
Good show! It follows the main plotline of the books which is fantastic. The acting could be better, but please keep in mind that this is only the first season so it will definitely get better!
I am honestly really enjoying this show. The first coupe episodes were very rough, but the quality of both acting and writing improved a lot. It's really such a compelling story. Shame some people can't seem to get it into their heads that it isn't suppose to be exactly like the books.
love it so far, tis come from someone who did not read the book, i do like its drama its new one with all the relation of what we like demons , vampire, shadowhunter...etc. and i like the relationship, romance, brothers , friends, its got something for everyone sooooo nice looking forward for season 2
I already wrote a review for when the show first started and honestly my opinion has not changed. I loved the books, read them when they first came out, and I had high hopes for this show. I knew it wouldn't be exactly like the books (nothing ever is), but I thought it would at least be good enough. I understand that if you haven't read the books then it would be an okay show, but it is not going as Cassie had put it to be. I mean where did this Lydia Branwell come from, she wasn't in the books
What the hell? How come they show us a high warlock, 3 highly trained shadowhunters, a somehow capable shadowhunter and a vampire... but it only takes Valentine (who did almost nothing) and 4 shadowhunters (one of them a newborn, untrained) to beat them? And so easily? I repeat, a high warlock... that should do half the trick. They just do whatever serves the plot they come up with
Just when did Mortal Instrumen became star wars... Just wondering... i should have not wandered around searching for new t.v shows.
This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Is the main actor reading from cue cards??
The only bad thing is the acting. The plot and characters are really good. If the acting gets better, it'll be a great tv show with POC actors and LGBTQ+ ships!
best serie ever!! okay, maybe not the best. Nothing can beat teen wolf! But still, I love this serieeeee <3 and Alec is cute
......the acting... i think that is all that needs to be said. I do hope it gets better.
As much as I agree with everyone on the acting and filming (1 minute and 10 seconds of panning shots of them standing in a circle. Ugh.) I really hope they don't cancel the show because of how much everyone is hating on it. It's great to see the universe come to life and see the characters interact in this way.
I keep seeing everyone say I hope it will get better the acting is off. I would truly love to see any of you do better than this. The books are getting sued, for copyright so how good are the books exactly? I've read them they DO NOT give as much screen time to the other characters as it should where the show? It does. They are all doing a wonderful job when it comes to their characters. The show is an ADAPTION. If you knew exactly how it was going to go you'd get bored with it. Personally I lov
it's alright. the acting is a bit :/ but it will get better over time. I keep watching, hoping it'll get better.
Big fan of the books and of the movie. They're doing a great job. They take the characters and most important plot points and show them with a new perspective. Hope it continues improving!
I just started to watch it because of the books. I had very high hopes for this show, so I am a little bit disappointed. But I will keep watching, hoping this get better.
Well, I must admit, the acting is a bit off, but I really do enjoy the show. The books were great, and I think they could improve the acting a little bit, especially the flashbacks. Aside from that, congratulation.
