idk what yall are fighting about

i need to talk about the fact that maggie just gave daryl the closure he needed

he didnt even want to LOOK at her he was so ashamed of himself and he hadnt spoken to her since he got to the hilltop

but she wanted him to look so he did even though he knew he was gonna start crying as soon as he turned

and then he ??? apOLOGIZED ??? AND IDK IF YALL KNOW HOW HARD IT IS FOR DARYL SO SAY HE’S SORRY BUT IT IS

AND HE DID BC HE FEELS SO GUILTY AND maggie just piled up all of daryl’s insecurities surrounding glenn and put them to bed ( not completely but still ) even when he was like NO ITS MY FAULT and then she asked him to fight with her and the hug and him nodding and im just

i have so many thoughts about this and what it means for daryls development and im sO HAPPY

SHADOWHUNTERS EPISODE ONE: HOW WAS IT?

Whew.

PROS:

  • Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis.
  • Lightwoods. 
  • Izzy is everything.
  • Some genuinely hilarious lines (mostly from Simon)
  • Valentine was pretty damn good.
  • some of the effects
  • It got better as it went.
  • set decor was on fleek
  • oh damn thats about it

CONS:

[deep breath] right so

  • Some really crappy writing, editing, and acting.
  • THE GRUNTING DURING THE FIGHT SCENES
  • just idk man it was off
  • the time jumps yall no
  • it was some cheesiness
  • chernobyl? really?
  • the dorthea demon what the hell was that
  • it was a mess
  • i cringed a few times
  • did i mention the acting

OVERALL:

It is a pilot. It has room to grow. I believe it will continue to improve. One of the main issues in my eyes was Kat being unable to carry the show as a protagonist. I read IGN’s review, and they made some very good points about how some of the fun of the source material was lost in some stiff performances, and tongue-in-cheek references throughout.

Is it worth watching?

Yes. 

It’s not perfect by a long shot, but it is better than the film in some facets. Again, it’s the first episode. I have hope it gets better. 

Either way, I’m sticking around, and the fandom should too. We have been through hell and back for this second chance.

DO IT FOR MAGNUS OKAY
