Shadowhunters - Season 1, Episode 1: The Mortal Cup - TV.com
In the first 5 minutes this TV show is way better than the 2013 movie ever was. Yes, it is aimed as the young adult market but that is what ABC Family or now Freeform is shooting for. The producers are handling how the supernatural and mundane world exist side by side quiet well and it makes sense visually. There are strong models for women and young girls, Jocelyn fighting off the Circle, Isabelle fighting demons with in a white vinyl mini outfit and a whip, and Clary accidentally killing demons with a sword. The best acting jobs were done by Jocelyn and Simon; Alex Lightwood's the weakest. Overall I good start to this fantasy series. The producers are planning to cover the first 3 books in two seasons.In the series premiere, a woman discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, human-angel hybrids who hunt demons.
