Shadow Hunters

Recently, the Shadow Hunters series hit the prime time line up. I watched the commercials weighing on weather I wanted to watch this new series based on the books. I haven't read the books either, and to be honest, when it comes to TV shows that are made from books, they rarely match up, in my opinion. 

Then along comes an article about the author of said books, a not so flattering one at that, one spouting bullying, plagiarism, etc... Now I don't know if any of those things are true. But I will say, it had me curious. So I decided to take the plunge and watch the shows to see what the fuss was about. 

I will say, I do like the show. I think it's got a very good thing going for it. Though I will say some of the acting is a bit stilted or forced at times, but I'm sure as time goes on the cast will find their rhythm and it will become more seamless as time goes on. 

I love Katherine McNamara as Clary. I think she was the perfect person to play that role. In fact her, and Dominic Sherwod as Jace are what have made the series so far for me. 

Without giving too much away for those who haven't watched, have you taken up watching yet? What do you think about it?
