‘Shadowhunters’ 3×09/3×10 Review: ‘Familia Ante Omnia’ & ‘Erchomai’

The first half of Shadowhunters season 3 ended tonight, and it was… not what I expected it to be. Is that a good thing? I’m not sure. Honestly, I was kind of happy with the way things were going, and…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×08 Review: ‘A Walk in Darkness’

These last few episodes of Shadowhunters season 3 have been underwhelming, but I didn’t hate A Walk in Darkness. On the contrary, I actually thought it one was done pretty well. It made me feel things, and in this case I’m not talking…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×07 Review: ‘Salt in the Wound’

I’m not mad at Shadowhunters at this point. I’m not upset about deviations from the source material or confusing decisions. I’m just disappointed. Salt in the Wound wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t what I wanted from Shadowhunters. It wasn’t as much fun…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×06 Review: ‘A Window Into An Empty Room’

Up until this point, I have been strangely happy with Shadowhunters season 3. So happy, in fact, that I’ve started to wonder if the show is actually getting better, or if I’m just getting used to it. Was last week’s episode…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×05 Review: ‘Stronger Than Heaven’

I did not expect to like this episode as much as I did. After the disappointing filler episode that was 3×04, I wasn’t expecting much from this one. Surprisingly, it ended up being one of my favourite episodes this season.…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×04 Review: ‘Thy Soul Instructed’

Shadowhunters season 3 has gotten off to a decent start so far. It’s far from perfect, but at this point the show knows what it is, and the episodes have been enjoyable, if a bit ridiculous. It’s one of those…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×03 Review: ‘What Lies Beneath’

What Lies Beneath was… well, it was an episode of Shadowhunters. It was weird and confusing, but also kind of fun, as long as you’re not taking it too seriously. There was a lot going on. Less than usual, perhaps, but…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×02 Review: ‘The Powers That Be’

We’re two episodes into Shadowhunters season three, and already we have a pretty good idea of what this season is going to be like. The Powers That Be featured all the things that make Shadowhunters so endearing and fun. It…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×01 Review: ‘On Infernal Ground’

Oh, how I’ve missed you, Shadowhunters. What other show is so ridiculous, and so mindlessly entertaining, that it can have me laughing for a solid hour even when nothing makes sense and I don’t understand anything that’s happening? The list…

Shadowhunters: 5 Things We Hope Get Fixed in Season 3

We’re now less than two weeks away from the Shadowhunters season 3 premiere, and as always, we have mixed feelings here on Fangirlish. We’ve never been the biggest fans of this show, but we’re still invested, and we still want what’s…

On Interpretation and Art Being Subjective

One of the most important lessons I learned in four years of creative writing was this: you have no control over how people will interpret your work. Writers are the first step in most projects. In plays, we write a…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×20 Review: ‘Beside Still Water’

And just like that, another season of Shadowhunters has come to an end. It was fun, it was ridiculous, it barely made any sense, and it was a whole lot better than the first one. It was not perfect, but…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×19 Review: ‘Hail and Farewell’

Shadowhunters really threw me for a loop with that episode title. Anyone who has read the books recognizes Hail and Farewell as the thing the Nephilim say when one of their own dies. When Max was almost murdered two episodes ago,…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×18 Review: ‘Awake, Arise or be Forever Fallen’

I still haven’t quite figured out how I feel about Awake, Arise or be Forever Fallen. Objectively, I think it might have been one of best episodes Shadowhunters has ever done: the writing was decent, the pacing was excellent and there were…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×17 Review: ‘A Dark Reflection’

I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed an episode of Shadowhunters as much as I enjoyed this one. Actually, let me rephrase that: I can’t remember an episode of this show that was as good as A Dark Reflection.…

Exclusive Interview: Jade Hassouné Talks ‘Shadowhunters’ and ‘That’s My DJ’

Jade Hassouné is best known for his role as the faerie-knight Meliorn on Freeform’s hit show Shadowhunters. As Meliorn, he adopts the persona of a handsome and elegant Seelie in a fantasy world full of werewolves, vampires, angels and demons, but…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×16 Review: ‘Day of Atonement’

Day of Atonement was a bit of a filler episode. And yet, it was as good a filler episode as Shadowhunters could have done. It was interesting, it provided great development for the characters and their relationships, and some of…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×15 Review: ‘A Problem of Memory’

I kind of want every episode of Shadowhunters to be like A Problem of Memory. It was ridiculous and slightly cringey at times, but it was fun. I laughed almost the entire way through. It had all the fun of…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×14 Review: ‘The Fair Folk’

I’ve said this so many times before about Shadowhunters, but it really is uncanny how this show always manages to defy my expectations no matter what they are. After Those of Demon Blood, I thought I had finally figured this…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×13 Review: ‘Those of Demon Blood’

Shadowhunters has been me feel a lot of different things in the last year and a half. Frustration and disappointment, mainly, but also anticipation. Pride when it actually gets something right. Love for these characters. Sadness on their behalf. What…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×12 Review: ‘You Are Not Your Own’

You Are Not Your Own was everything I have come to expect from Shadowhunters season 2. It wasn’t epic, but it wasn’t terrible. There were some good character moments, some reasonably entertaining storylines. People were disguised as each other. Cool…
