Would You Watch The Mortal Instruments TV Show?

The Hollywood Reporter announced that The Mortal Instruments will be renewed not as a movie sequel, but as a TV show (Image Source) So the question is: Would you watch The Mortal Instruments as a TV show? Our answer: Yes. Yes, we most certainly would. If Stargate: SG1 has proven anything, it’s that a TV series following a movie can actually out-do the movie itself. If Game of Thrones has proven anything, it’s that a book series translates better to the small screen rather than…
