Shadowhunters Teaser #1Shadowhunters. Coming to ABC Family in 2016.Posted by Shadowhunters on Tuesday, June 2, 2015
Tell me what you think about this TV reboot of The Mortal Instruments Series. Will it be a hit, or will it bomb like its movie counterpart?
Seen the movie and thought it was another book into movie adaptation. I'm a believer that sometimes a movie can never do a book justice. But there are those that stays faithful and is just as good as the original source. Now I've never read the book but movie wise I thought it started off good but then somewhere along the line it went downhill. And to this day I can't pinpoint where it began. I can't tell by the teaser but don't have much hope for the series.You never know though, the series might be better than movie. It all depends on the director(s), writers, actors, etc.
The reason that the move went downhill, in my person opinion is because a lot of the key info in book was left out. Background stories, moving too fast from one point to the next without telling us why, things like that.
I didn't really like the movie, but then again... I didn't really like the book either.I personally think books translate better into something that can be pushed longer. Like a three hour movie is too much, but six thirty minute episodes? That's tolerable and then there's more than six in a season, usually, so more time to spread out and tell the whole story. Of course, some books wouldn't work because they're just two events and the rest is fluff. But eh. I'll probably give the show a watch.
I was so-so on the book. I mean the world building was great, and the concept intriguing, but I didn't like the typical characters, or that awkward love-tringle that really wasn’t a love-triangle. I did however like the move, mostly because I was expecting it to be a lot worst then it was. But in all, the movie did leave out some key plot points about the story that, left those who didn't read the book, confused and a little lost. I do believe that the TV series might be better; you have more time to get it right. Pulse all the world building details and sub-plots can be added to make it solid.
Well, I have to say that trailer didn't show me much! I am someone who loved the books, all six of them and couldn't wait for the movie to come out <3 And although I did think they did the casting right for some of the characters the movie was an utter failure and I found myself laughing at how bad it was :/ I am seriously hoping that this television show will be a lot better and they will do it right! I hope so DD: And the casting so far seems okay...
I've been searching around, and I did kind of find some images of the set. But then again, it's google, and you can't always trust google. lol.
