First Television Edition of the year and I’m so excited! It was a bit difficult to pick four because I also wanted to have the knowledge of at least one or more books under my belt! Luckily I have read exactly enough to share four teen shows, because I’m feeling very youthful at the moment. So here are my picks, guilty pleasures and all, and let me know which ones have you seen yourself!
Sure, I fell out of love from Gossip Girls during its last seasons but it was still hell of a good teen drama when it started. I’ve read a few of the Gossip Girl books as well, though they were not as eventful. I think Gossip Girl is one of those shows that improved the books by changing things and it worked out well. Plus, can we all take a moment to appreciate the fashion?
I stopped with this show when Nina Dobrev left, for me, she was the glue that held the show together and it was impossible for me to continue. By then the show had lost a lot of its footing already though, so it wasn’t hard to give up the Salvador brothers. That being said, the show has a very strong opening season and a few next ones are even better. Definitely a lot better than the books, trust me, the books were just not even half as good!
Have I mentioned The 100 before? Maybe I have, maybe not, but here I am praising a show I have been meaning to get back on track with for two seasons now! I’ve also read the first book of the series and thought that the show did a far better job translating the idea onto screen. It’s like it added a lot more substance to the whole concept and I like that about this show. I really need to rewatch it and catch up!
Don’t look at me like that… I did say there are guilty pleasures here and this happens to be a huge one! Shadowhunters is so bad, like, I know it’s bad and it has the worst first season you can imagine. Bad CGI, bad acting, bad stunts and it’s so cliché, BUT it gets better. It doesn’t get better than other shows, but it improves itself and that’s better than nothing! Also, it does differ a lot from the books but I do think, since I came to this fandom so late in my life, that it doesn’t really matter. What I’m actually looking forward to, is Shadowhunters: The Dark Artifices! I hope it happens, and I hope they learn from their mistakes, and make that show amazing!
