Wow, it has been a heck of a long time since I’ve blogged so I thought I would ease myself back into it with one of the TV Tag’s I frequently did in last year. It will come as no surprise to my friends that this time I have chosen Shadowhunters.
Do any of your friends watch the show? Are they as obsessed as you?
My internet friends? Heck yeah! My IRL friends? Hell no – does watching my insta stories count!
How did you discover the show?
I read the books when I was a teenager and loved them. I then watched Matthew Daddario in Naomi and Elly’s No Kiss List and IMDB’d him and the rest is history.
What was your first initial thought of the show and did it change after watching it?
I was so glad that it was loads better than the film, but tbh the first few episodes as with many shows had some ropey acting but I instantly connected to the characters.
Why do you like the show?
I love the complex story lines, I love the characters, I love the way they mix the human world and the demon world together and the way that important societal topics are addressed like; class divides, race, homophobia, sexuality, mental illness and family relationships.
Who’s your favourite character in the show?
Do you even need to ask. Alec Lightwood, hands down. Everyone’s favourite archer boy, my favourite character in the books, and Matt was the reason i found the series in the first place! Loyal, devoted and a leader – the go to when anyones in a sitch.
Who’s your least favourite character?
Valentine as he causes the most heartbreak and pain to our faves but Alan Van Sprang’s has the acting down to a tee making it so easy to hate valentine
If you were to be a character, who would you choose?
Isabelle Lightwood obviously! Super strong, fighting fit, independent, gorgeous and with two protective brothers by her side.
What’s your favourite episode?
Just 1!! I can’t say just 1 – id have to say 1×12 for obvious malec related reasons! 2×03 for all the parabatai scenes and 2×12 for the valentine/magnus body switching! I seem to have a thing for episodes 12 so 3×12 better live up to expectations!
What’s your favourite season?
2 definitely! Whilst I love season 1, it was just finding its feet. In season 2 the relationships are more established, the acting is better, we have some awesome new additions to the team and I have shed a tear more times than I care to admit!
Do you watch it when it airs or do you record it?
I watch it on Netflix every Tuesday when it is released.
Which one of the characters would you like to meet?
I think me and Magnus would get on like a house on fire and who wouldn’t want a warlock BFF!
If you could meet any one of the actors, who would you like to meet?
Until Next Time,
