I had the strangest experience watching Shadow and Bone with my partner and it was genuinely eye opening. As we watched, he kept making comments that I found confusing. He was asking why the Darkling seemed so non threatening and suggesting ways to make him scarier. When I explained the character to him and told him that intimidation wasn't the point, he seemed to genuinely not understand. Later, he asked me why Kaz was played by someone so attractive and I struggled to answer him. I couldn't understand his reaction and then finally, it hit me. Most high budget fantasies are geared towards a male audience. He's never seen anything like this before. The Darkling is designed to be attractive to young women, that's how he draws us in. He's a villain meant to scare US, he preys on OUR fears. He's not some typical scary man you'd see in a mainstream movie. And Kaz isn't an anti hero that most men are used to seeing. He's vulnerable, he's deep, he makes genuine connections. He's attractive to US, he's not a typical male self insert.
I'm so incredibly happy that Shadow and Bone was made, I'm happy that more diverse stories are coming to the mainstream. I enjoy a lot of mainstream fantasy but it's not all there is. I get tired of being asked to consume male stories. We deserve to have our stories told too.
Also, my partner is a lovely, kind person. Please don't come for him haha.

I was rewatching episode 3 and i noticed that
During the train scene, when they think they’re all going to die, Kaz, who was sitting near the firebox
Tumblr media
moves and goes to sit in front of Inej 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
and then he keeps looking at her 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
he thinks he’s about to die and his first thought is getting close to Inej and looking at her during his last moments
Tumblr media
and she stares back at him
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
even when the last volcra was about to tear down the roof, he was still looking at her 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
even when they knew they made it out alive, they were still looking at each other
Tumblr media
then everything went back to normal.
I NEED KAZ POV SO BAD

Shadow and Bone TV series questions answered by early viewers (NO PLOT SPOILERS)
When someone was asked about Kanej they said this - "Definition of chemistry. Soulmates. I love them."
Apparently we will get to see way more of the Crows than we're expecting
Calahan as Matthias will speak in a Scandinavian accent
There is a lot of banter and teasing between the Crows
Jesper's bisexuality is represented well
Jesper has the best lines and is very sassy
Kaz and Inej's trauma is handled well (Inej's is more evident meanwhile Kaz's is more internal)
When asked about the Nina and Matthias storyline, someone replied - "😏😏😏"
Inej HAS NOT been reduced to only Kaz's love interest
Kaz whacks someone with his cane
