"Shadowhunters" - an optimistic second chance
Today was the premiere date for the new show based on the highly acclaimed Shadowhunters series by Cassandra Clare and let me tell you it was a really great start!
After the 2013 Shadowhunters movie fiasco, most of the fans were afraid of what this new series would bring. But after a very promising marketing strategy and the promise, by the actors, that the series would obey the books - with another surprise or two - most of our nerves calmed down a little more.
The story is based in a world where there are human-angels a.k.a Shadowhunters that fight demons to protect mundanes (humans) and their world from evil. A normal human called Clary Fray, with not such as normal bloodline discovers that she comes from a line of Shadowhunters and in that moment her world comes crumbling down. She grabs her best friend Simon along with her for the ride, between war and peace, hard choices and love triangles.
In the episode we were able to see Kate Nacnamara as Clary discovering a whole new World - we just need Aladdin - Dominic Sherwood as Jace with his sexy and savior self, Izzy (Emeraude Toubia) as the definitely most charismatic character, and the first appearance of the villain Valentine Morgenster (Alan Van Sprang) that seems will cause some trouble.
For a true fan of the series, you will not be disappointed. Today’s episode was a huge promise of an amazing show if they continue with this pace.
