The show is doing the concept of Shadowhunters far more justice than the books, and the deviations from canon have so far been good and thought-provoking and exactly what a TV show should be doing.
The characters are more fleshed out. They’re far more compelling than the books. I’m genuinely interested in where the writers are taking this season, and not just making my way through the book to get to the next mildly interesting fight scene.
And, of course, Malec being adopted by the production and given background and substance is the best thing to happen to the franchise since the writers lost Captain Crunch’s phone number on purpose probably.
This isn’t an attempt to get book fans to fight me.
Well, maybe a little.
