What Are You Watching?

One thing I said I was going to do was talking about this year was some of the shows I am watching at the moment. Well…I have been watching a few shows. So let’s dive into a quick chat about what I am watching!

New Shows

Shadowhunters:

I wanted to talk about this show first because I was so exited for this one. I read the Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare. I saw the City of Bones movie. I love the whole Shadowhunters world. And then this show came out…I have basically hated every minute of the three episodes I pushed myself through.

Let me tell you, the acting in this show is so horrible. It just feels low budget and half thought out. The dialogue is boring, and it’s not nearly as magical as the books or the movie. I am terribly upset by this. Honestly, I feel like most of the blame goes to the girl cast as Clary, Katherine McNamara. Everything I have seen her acting in has been horrible. In everything I remember her in she has been this spoiled brat that gets upset when she doesn’t get her way. Sadly, she has brought this into Shadowhunters and Clary. I loved Clary in the books and the movie. I do not love the Clary of the TV show.

I will not continue watching this show. Not only because of the horrible acting and poorly written screenplay, but also, I feel like they just changed too much from the books. It just doesn’t feel like the same story and it’s no longer a story I am interested in.

Shannara Chronicles:

Another TV show based on a novel series. Unlike Shadowhunters, I absolutely love this show. It is so amazing! I have heard bad things about the book series, but watching the show makes me want to read the books. Although, I could be disappointed in one or the other after reading the book.

The acting is on point with this show, which honestly surprised me. I don’t know why, because Teen Wolf is an MTV original show and I love it. I just thought with this show being a high fantasy kind of show, that the budget wouldn’t cover the effects it would need to make the show amazing. I was so wrong!

I love Austin Butler, who plays Wil, one of the main characters. He is seriously gorgeous…the lips… Anyways. He is an amazing actor and I loved him in Switched at Birth. He is much better at playing a half elf, half human though.

The leading women of the show, Poppy Drayton (plays Princess Amberle), and Ivana Baquero (plays Eretria) are also amazing actors. I don’t recall any thing else that have played in, but their acting on this show makes me want to see more from them.

Seriously if you have not checked out this show, please take a couple of hours and watch the first two shows. I don’t think you need the first two to be hooked, but you know, just in case you have your doubts.

Lucifer:

This is another show I had my doubts about and I have only seen one episode. Not because I didn’t like the first, I just haven’t had time to watch the second episode. The first episode was very intriguing and I really enjoyed it. It’s a nice twist on the devil himself and what he might be like in real life.

But you see in the first episode, that him leaving hell to mingle among the humans is starting to change him. Then again, it seems like he was forced to be the king of hell, and it doesn’t really suit him. I am looking forward to seeing more of this show and I really hope the future episodes follow the first and keep me interested. There is so much they could do with the story line.

Returning Shows

Teen Wolf:

 

What really needs to be said about this show? It’s amazing, I love it, and this season has been incredible so far. I thought I would start getting bored at this point, but the show just keeps me on the edge of my seat!

The 100:

This show is in it’s third season and it just keeps getting better and better. Who hasn’t thought about what the world will be like when radiation forces us to escape into space and limited air supply sends us crashing back to the home once deemed unfit for human life?

Also, this was based on a book. I’m afraid to read the book. I’m thinking I will just wait until the show is cancelled (hopefully after several more successful seasons) before I even try reading the books.

There are many more shows that I watch…trust me. There are a ton. But, I have weeks to cover them. I want to start doing a recap/discussion on each episode. Short discussions for episodes I enjoyed with one or two comments, and more in depth discussion for episodes that leave my jaw in the floor.

I will also add times and days that these shows air. Call me lazy this week…I’m trying to get my stuff together to make my post better. Just hang in there with me while I figure it all out.

Tell me, what shows are you watching??

      I always feel bad for the people in other countries because they have to wait weeks for a show to air, or even months. Even here in the US we get to see shows like Doctor Who the same day the UK sees them.
