On her birthday, Clary Fray discovers a surprise concerning her life. The teenager is not who she thinks she is — she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids, called Shadowhunters, who hunt demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary is thrust into the world of demon-hunting. Clary relies on mysterious Jace and fellow hunters Isabelle and Alec to help her navigate the dark world. While living in this new world among creatures like vampires and werewolves, Clary’s best friend Simon helps her uncover answers that could help her find her mother. The fantasy show is based on a series of young adult books by Cassandra Clare.
Can’t even lie. I was expecting to hate this show. But nope. It brought the sexy. Like StarCrossed, I felt like an dirty old lady crushing over the supposed teenage actors. But thankfully, the characters were over the age of 18 in Shadowhunter, so i felt a lot less pervy watching it.
I was one of the unlucky few, who liked the books and went to theater to see the movie. It sucked donkey balls. OHEMGEE, the Jace in the movie sucked soooo baaad. I liked the show. I really enjoyed seeing the charcters come to life. I just finished The Clockwork Angel and i enjoyed hearing them refernce characters from the prequel.
Diversity. Its not most diverse show on Television, but it probably has some of the most sexy diverse actors on one television show. So i’m gonna list some of the sexy diverse actors on the show.
Isiah Mufasa aka the Sexy dude from the Old Spice Comericals (see they brought the sexy)
He gets the bonus of being a Shadowhunter. the head of the Wearwolves, and a cop. We can’t have a paranormal show without a cop.
Jade Hassouné as a Seelie named Meliorn
POC with pointy ears. You know how I go gaga over brown people with pointy ears. Squee. I’m totally stalking Jade on Instagram.
Harry Shum Jr as the infamous Magnus Bane
I really only have one complaint: Magnus Bane played by Harry Shum Jr. Magnus Bane is supposed to be hundreds of years old, but he seems like the weakest character in the show. I dn’t think the actor is comfortable being bisexual. I’m hopoing Harry grows into his role, though.
FYI: he’s much more bad ass in this picture than in the show.
Update: No Black Girl love on this show. There two of any substance. One died early on, and the other was a one night stand dissed by Simon. ;-/
