Watched the first two episodes tonight and liked them. I have not read any of the books this series is based on. Decided to give it a try on a whim. Interesting characters in a fairly typical fantasy premise (an unknown, ordinary person suffers something shocking and displays very powerful magic abilities that change their life forever).
Imagine I thought of something witty and wrote it here.
I only watched the first episode, but I really liked it. Kinda spooky. It's Sherlock Holmes adjacent. I'm not even sure we'll see him, to be honest. But Watson hires a group of street kids to help him find some missing children, but it turns out to be just the beginning of something more sinister and evil mwuhahahaha. But I might do an episode weekly, like a real TV show.
About 80% of the way through Shadow and Bone. In the first episode, Mal is holding a bunny and I really thought they were going to show him have to kill the bunny and I was ready to turn it off. But no. No bunnies were harmed in the making of the show. Or goats. So far.
I watched the final episodes of the first season and I liked the show very much, and I could also tell it was based on a book and probably skimmed a lot with regards to secondary characters, for the TV show I didn't feel cheated out of time with any of them. But for some reason, I was still annoyed by the ending. Not so much the quality, or even how it ended. But I guess I was hoping at that point Alina would stop being so oblivious to her surroundings or the consequences of her actions when she only focuses on Mal's well-being. I guess just have one moment that was a bit more Kaz Brekker in cleverness.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
