Shadowhunters - 1x01 The Mortal Cup

The Mortal Cup

On her birthday, Clary Fray finds out 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. 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 filled with faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could lead to her mother.

At first I thought it was worse than the movie... Then the good things happen so...
On the plus side:
- good casting of Izzy (and also Alec as they look so similar) bc she looks like it's natural for her not acting, Clary as she bought me when she cried, Magnus, yep young Magnus rlz
- I liked the younger Dorothea
- loved that they made the scene when Clary fights the demon in her house
- Abadass mom which wasn't really shown in the movie and the fact that she tried to told Clary everything... I hated the decision she made in the books

On the bad side:
- casting of Luke (mistah "I'm on a horse") and Simon (bc his body is too hot and he looks like a third Lightwood, sory, I know it sounds racist), Jace who looks like Ken from Barbie in this (and I like the actor) only muscle and even no long, bleached blond hair :(
- the 'how we show the runes on us' -.-
- how demon dies ... I thought like I'm watching a game. Not good when you love the books
- the 'how we take care of demons' ... from operation room full of people, shiny stuff, glass and light... like secret FBI or sth. Shadowhunters were traditional and old -.-

I think I have to treat this like a different story, not the Mortal Instruments

well, this was better than I expected. I'm relieved.
