I’m a bit late to the party on this one, as it already has one season under its belt and is working on it’s second.I was pleasantly surprised by the premiere episode though.Clary Fray(Katherine Mcnamara) is a young lady about to head off to college when her whole world gets turned upside down.
She finds out that her mother has been protecting her from a world of demons, vampires , fairies and eskimos…..I’m just judging this based on the first episode, but it seems very much if Grimm and Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a cinematic love child which is more than okay in my book.
There were a few cliches thatI had seen before, and a few of those demons looked awfully familiar(Think Underworld) .I did think the first episode was hot shotted a bit, but I know that’s the norm these days in the 1000 channel universe.I hope they slow the pace down as the story continues.
Rounding out the cast is a bunch of actors I’ve never seen before, but all of them did a decent job with the script.Stand outs were Isabelle Lightwood played by Emeraude Toubia, Jace Wayland (Dominic Sherwood) and Maxim Roy as Joceyln Fray.
This series was based off best selling novel series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare. I’m going to continue watching as it definitely has potential .The camp is kept at a minimum,and the acting got better as just the first episode went on.Here’s the Season 1 trailer for you to check out.Be warned…it’s Disney and everyone is sickly pretty
