Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments

Synopsis:

On her birthday, Clary Fray discovers a surprise concerning her life. The teenager is not who she thinks she is — she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids, called Shadowhunters, who hunt demons. After her mother is kidnapped, Clary is thrust into the world of demon-hunting. Clary relies on mysterious Jace and fellow hunters Isabelle and Alec to help her navigate the dark world. While living in this new world among creatures like vampires and werewolves, Clary’s best friend Simon helps her uncover answers that could help her find her mother. The fantasy show is based on a series of young adult books by Cassandra Clare

Oh my! The acting was just awful from Clary in that first episode, I am surprised that I even stuck it out as she did not get any better! But I was investing Alec and Magnu’s relationship 🙂

Jen’s husband recently died in a hit-and-run, and the sardonic widow is determined to solve the crime. Optimistic free spirit Judy has recently suffered a tragic loss of her own. The ladies meet at a support group and, despite their polar-opposite personalities, become unlikely friends. As the women bond over bottles of wine and a shared affinity for “The Facts of Life,” Judy tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.

I loved this show, and I really hope there is a second season. Though having said that, this ended on the right note with a little bit of Karma being dished out.

Some reality binges:

Tiny House Nation

I just needed a wee dose of some reality TV and loved this, if I could I would love a tiny house. But will settle on just getting rid of everything over time.

Just Tattoo of Us

Part of the reason I went and got a new tattoo was because this show put me in the mood! There were some truly god awful tattoos done on this show and just goes to show you cant even trust your own supposed best friend to not set you up for life with a pretty shitty tattoo!
