Opinion: We Don’t Need More Book-to-Screen Adaptations

Last Wednesday, one year almost to the day after the finale of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments on Freeform, Constantin Film and the BBC dropped a bomb on fans of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles: they’re making a TV Show out of…

An ‘Infernal Devices’ television show is on the way!

Exciting news, Shadowhunters! Constantin Film is developing an ‘Infernal Devices’ adaptation for BBC Three.

‘Shadowhunters’ Series Finale Review: ‘Alliance’ and ‘All Good Things…’

Well. There we go. Just like that, it’s all over. The end of an era. A strange, frustrating era, in which I for some reason committed to reviewing a show that’s mildly amusing at best and downright offensive at worst.…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×20 Review: ‘City of Glass’

It’s the last regular episode of season three of Shadowhunters, and now all that’s left is the 2 ½ hour finale. This episode was underwhelming and cringe-worthy in a lot of ways, as Shadowhunters episodes usually are, but it had…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×19 Review: ‘Aku Cinta Kamu’

It’s the second-to-last episode of the season, I am still so confused about so many things, and I have no idea how this show is going to wrap things up in one episode. Let’s discuss season three episode nineteen, Aku…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×17 Review: ‘Heavenly Fire’

Shadowhunters seems to be making up for all those pointless filler episodes at the start of the season by cramming lots of stuff into this one. I enjoyed a lot of it, and it made me feel things at times,…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×16 Review: ‘Stay With Me’

We’re more than halfway through the final half season of Shadowhunters and finally, finally, the main plot seems to be going somewhere. Is it going where I want it to? I’m not sure. Big changes are being made, seemingly just for the…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×15 Review: ‘To the Night Children’

Another week, another Shadowhunters episode with little to no direction or connection to the overall arc of the season. Did anything really happen in this episode? Not really. Could you have skipped it without missing anything? Probably. Did I expect anything…

‘Shadowhunters’ 2×14 Review: ‘A Kiss From A Rose’

You’d think that at some point I’d stop being surprised by Shadowhunters. I’m not even sure I’m surprised right now. I’m disappointed, yes. I had hoped this show would take a different direction with the various storylines it has introduced…

‘Shadowhunters’ Season 3 Episode 3 Review: ‘Beati Bellicosi’

Beati Bellicosi was a bit of a filler episode. The kind Shadowhunters likes to throw in every once in a while even though their plot is already convoluted enough that even ten episodes doesn’t seem like nearly enough. This episode was…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×12 Review: ‘Original Sin’

Shadowhunters only has a few episodes to wrap up the entire series, and in typical Shadowhunters it is breezing through the last few books while attempting to answer all the questions they’ve left unanswered. Couples are getting together, convenient plot holes…

‘Shadowhunters’ 3×11 Review: ‘Lost Souls’

After almost a year off, Shadowhunters is back with the second half of its third and final season, and it’s as fun, as confusing, and as busy as always. This midseason premiere was… an episode of Shadowhunters, and I didn’t…

Shadowhunters releases first trailer for season 3B

It’s almost that time of year again. After a very long hiatus, Shadowhunters returns for its final season on February 25th. Freeform has just released the very first trailer for the new half-season. As expected, it’s… a bit of a mess.…

Shadowhunters To End After Season 3

So long, Shadowhunters. I’d say I’m going to miss you, but, well, I’m not sure I will. Freeform announced today that Shadowhunters, a very loose adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments series, would end after the upcoming second half of its third season.…

‘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…
