Shadowhunters: Season 1 Reviews

November 20, 2017
For the most part, I was able to go with the flow and enjoy the ride. Even if it did cover a ton of information in a short amount of time.

"Shadowhunters" has its assets, especially its popular source material. But it might become more fun if it learns to enjoy being the empowerment fantasy it really is.

Not one punch or stab lands with any real force.

Decter appears far more interested in Revelations than revelation, and in his rush to get to the "good stuff" he has forgotten that this kind of stuff is good only when it takes a while to get there.

Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments has the rare honor of being wildly complex and still wildly bland.

Sure, this was just the pilot, but if first impressions can be trusted, this series is headed for the junkyard.

Wild start, but a good-looking one. Demands working knowledge of the books.

But, lordy, is it silly - and worse, it lacks the wit or sharp self-awareness to own up to its campiness or help make its melodramatic elements more palatable.
