I’m not in a state I can write any review, so I just listed the things I like and I dislike. Just it.

The things I like from Shadowhunters episode 4:

·         The acting gets even better.

·         Lightwoods siblings’ interaction (as always.)

·         Tessa and Spiral Labyrinth are mentioned.

·         The necklace, Magnus, Camille, and their past relationship are mentioned. I didn’t expect this to be mentioned.

·         Jalec holding hands. Alec looks at Jace longingly. Ouch.

·         Boyfriends who slay together stay together. Malec  double teaming a bad guy.

·         Alec can’t even speak any coherent words when Magnus flirts speaks to him.

·         Magnus does ‘being nice to future sister in law to get her brother’ thing.

·         Magnus constantly glances at Alec (and flirts shamelessly).

·         Alec is clueless, but looks back at Magnus with hidden and shy interest.

·         “The only other person I've known who could draw as well was Michelangelo, who was excellent in bed, I might add.” Smooth, Bane. Subtle as brick, are we?

·         Jace’s face when Magnus keeps flirts at Alec. Alec keeps shrughing in the most Alec way possible.

·         “You people are pathetic.” Yes, go on My Queen Isabelle.

·         The person Isabelle loves the most is Alec.

·         Jace’s shock expression when he sees Alec’s beloved memory of person they love the most. The way he looks at Alec as if asks him, “Is this true, bro? You love me more than anything?”

·         Alec is troubled and confused.

·         “There's nothing to be ashamed of, Alec.”
“I don't know what you're talking about.”
“You will.”

·         Malec, in general.

Things I don’t particulary like:

·         Bad dream and hallucination for everyone! (I mean, Clary dreams about that time when her memories were wiped, Simon hallucinates about Camille, and Clary’s vision about Valentine in the end. Nay!)
·         Unecessary and forced love triangle. (Simon-Clary-Jace, whatever. Oh, I nearly forget about Maureen and her crush on Simon.)
·         Clary looks even more mary sue than her books’ counterpart.
·         And she is still an annoying flake.
·         Some lines are just not working.
·         My boys finally meet, but for this episode is boring in general. Like, I keep watch it because I know I will see plenty of Malec. It's like a filler episode and just it.
·         Magnus is being not so smart and wise as he should be.
·         Valentine and Luke’s scenes in the middle are just irrelevant.
·         Jace is still a prick and shitty parabatai.
·         No Chairman Meow.

I wrote this pretty quick, simply because i like it far more than the first two episodes. Some snarks are still here, anyway. (How could I live without sassiness and sarcasm, really?)

 I posted that in twitter few hours before the show aired, and I joked if I did that game for the previous episode I would get some cookies but also end up dead drunk. However, I think I wouldn’t end up that drunk if I did the game for the third episode. I don’t do the game, though, or else I can’t write this properly.

Of course, it starts with, “previously on Shadowhunters,” and some recaps from the previous episodes. Did I need to remind you that Simon was kidnapped by vampires in the previous episode? Probably not.

We pick what was left in the last episode.

 So, Clary obviously chooses to stay in the Institute, reassuring Simon that Jace can help them. Simon doesn’t like the idea but follows them inside, anyway. Simon can’t see anything but old rickety church. Jace marks himself with vision rune and grabs Simon’s hands. As the glamour’s lifted Simon’s eyes widen in awe. You know what Simon says when Jace grabs his hand?
“Buddy, what's going on, man? I'm not your type, man. I don't even...”
The italic sentence is bothering me. If it’s supposed to be a joke then it doesn’t hit me. I cringe instead of feel amused by this line. I don’t know why. Yeah, whatever. I admit I’m the weird one with dry sense of humor. I will probably get along nicely with Alec since we share some personality traits.

Here there are, the long awaited TV shows based on popular YA books has finally aired. Two episodes of it, to be exact. So, here I am, writing my thoughts about this show. First of all, I warn you once again: Books and TV series are two different things. There will be (many) changes to make it more appealing and hook more viewers. Besides, what is interesting to watch TV series when you know what will happen next? Surprisingly, I’m really looking forward for the changes and the twists. However, not everyone likes changes. I understand, I was rabid books fan back then (fortunately not these books, I don’t really like this books in general honestly). But, I guess I’ve already grown from this is not in the books, they cut this and that, they change everything, etc etc to it’s okay to change things as long as it’s reasonable and the main point remain same, it’s okay to make things more believable, and it’s entirely acceptable for me to change or add subplots for the sake of characters’ development—as long as it’s written right. By right, I mean not out of characters. It’s an adaptation, anyway.

So, here we go!
