My first review and the only reason I decided to write one because of how awful the first 2 episodes were! The acting is terrible! The main protagonist whinny and annoying! Sort of reminds you of those low budget movies where the acting is so cheesy and over the top. The redeeming factor was the character Magnus (Asian dancer from Glee), perks up your curiosity. Might give the show another shot just to see if it might get better since the books were so enjoyable.
