Song Of The Moment -The World Spins Madly On by The Weepies
First of all let me say that I love this series of books, like I even liked the ending of Requiem which not a lot of fans can say. I mean I won the Ultimate Delirium Fan contest that Epic Reads held last year, that shows commitment, right?
So basically it is a version of all of book 1 in one 45 min episode and it is so bad, like I just want to laugh at how bad it is. Not just compared to the book even having never read the book I would think it was a bad show.
First of all I feel like if you haven't read the book you would not know what was going on at all. I liked Emma Roberts as Lena but that's all I liked. It's rushed and just so lame. It's like trying to be all dramatic but the dialogue is bad and the acting is bad and it's not hard to see why it was never picked up for a full season.
There is so much going on is this that is so off from the books, I mean Lena and Alex met, fall in love and escape to the wilds in one episode! I mean what was the rest of the show supposed to even be about? They went through a whole book in one episode and nothing happened! It was literally the worst case of insta love I have ever seen!
It was just so lame and overly dramatic and all around cringe worthy. All I could do while watching this is laugh nervously and repeat to myself "What is even going on? What the heck is this?". Alex was just a horrible character in this show he was like creepy and stalker like. And then there was Julian who was like a sick and confused puppy and there was what I think was a hint of a coming romance between him and Hana, what? and Hana was just wrong. I honestly can't think of one thing I liked about this pilot episode and I am fairly confident that the show would have failed if it had been picked up. I mean I've read and loved the books and even I didn't know what was going on half the time!
Over all this is an epic fail.
Have you watched the delirium pilot? If so, thoughts? If not, do you plan to?
