Let's be honest, it keeps getting better.
25 February 2016 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I agree with all the bad reviews for the first 3 or 4 episodes, at first it looked like it was amateur, that all the actors and actresses were not experienced and the fight scenes were not natural at all. The story didn't seem to have a connection and make us anxious for the next episode, but i think it changed. In the last 4 chapters, I think the story got to a good an interesting plot and pace. I'm now connected to the characters, specially Clary and Jace, Alec and Magnus and yeah, now I'm rooting for them (what makes it even more interesting) This episode was perfect for all of us who started having feelings for the characters and yeah, I'm gonna stick with it :)
