Shadow Hunters – Not As Lame As Last Season
Shadow Hunters Season 1 was lame. Let’s be honest. I made it through the first season because Jace Wayland captured my attention in almost every episode. I’m the first to admit eye candy get’s me through most of the television I watch. What? at least I’m honest.
I found Season 1 absolutely cringe worthy, especially Magnus Bane. I’m pleased to say that both Magnus and Alec Lightwood’s character has drastically improved and their scenes together aren’t nearly as awkward.
The acting has tightened up as far as quality goes and the script is far less fluffy and predictable. The clave has a couple of new characters, more people die and the fight scenes have improved drastically. Jace is still hot. Clary Fairchild is still a damsel in distress, but she’s getting tougher by the episode.
Just like the book & film the chemistry between Jace and Clary is evident. It’s almost painful being denied their relationship throughout the story. Will that ever happen? Brother and sister? I’m expecting some weird twist that they are not actually blood related due to the revelations in the first two episodes (I won’t spoiler).
I doubt it will happen, but I can’t help but be a shipper. I’m not going to say this is quality, must see television. Shadow Hunters is a fun fantasy show that draws you away from reality. If you were a Twilight fan back in the day, you will love Shadow Hunters.
Shadow Hunters produces a new episode every Wednesday on Netflix Australia.
