‘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’ 3×03 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’ 3×01 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…

The Best and Worst of DCTV This Season

Since we’re about halfway through the current seasons of the DCTV shows, it seems a good time to reflect on the best and worst each show has had to offer this year. Well, the second worst, at least. The worst…

‘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.…

‘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’ 2×13 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…

Book Review: ‘Lord of Shadows’ by Cassandra Clare

“Break my heart,” he said. “Break it in pieces. I give you permission.”  – Me before reading every Cassandra Clare novel One thing I’ve always appreciated about Cassandra Clare’s books is how layered they are. The first time you read…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×11 Review: ‘Mea Maxima Culpa’

Oh, the joys of season (or in this case, mid-season) premieres. They’re always my favourite episodes of every season, because they hold so much promise. I haven’t been worn down by a full season of ridiculousness, bad CGI and cringey…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×10 Review: ‘By the Light of Dawn’

I never thought I’d say this, but watching the midseason premiere of Shadowhunters, I actually envied all the show fans who hadn’t read the books. As an episode of a TV Show, By the Light of Dawn was epic. It…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×05 Review: ‘Dust and Shadows’

Shadowhunters is at its best when it focuses on its characters, and Dust and Shadows demonstrated that. The character moments were amazing: Jace and Clary’s chemistry continues to be amazing, Alec just about stole every scene he was in, and…

Shadowhunters Needs to Fix its Shapeshifting Rune

Of all the senseless additions to the Shadow World that Shadowhunters has introduced over its first two seasons, the shapeshifting rune – that useful little mark that allows all our nephilim characters to seamlessly disguise themselves as other people –…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×01 Review: ‘This Guilty Blood’

I’m not sure what I expected from the Shadowhunters season two premiere. A small improvement over season one, I guess? I know what I was hoping for. I wanted good character scenes, better cinematography, more consistent world building and more…

Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ 2×10 Review: ‘The Man in the Box’

We’re back with our tenth review of this season’s Daredevil on the episode ‘The Man in the Box’. As we’ve mentioned in our previous reviews, this season we are reviewing each episode so we can get deeper into the nitty…
