THOUGHTS: Delirium Pilot (The TV Show)




Hello bookworms, I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long, I'm having a reading slump lately.. I don't know why. It's annoying and I hate it. I've been taking baby steps with my reading since I've read 9 books last month, which is crazy to even think about. I've been watching some TV shows lately and I've discovered something horrendous. A DELIRIUM TV SHOW.

At first I was extremely excited and I had extremely high expectations of it, I've only found the pilot so I thought I'd give it a try. You know that Delirium is actually my favorite trilogy of all time, so I thought that the show would be as amazing.. I've also heard that the TV show has been cancelled.

I KNOW WHY. It sucked, they literally crammed up the whole delirium book in one episode and they introduced us to Julian and I've only seen 3 or 4 Alex and Lena scenes. COME ON, I want to see more of their romance (it's the reason why Delirium is my favorite book out of the 3). I hated it so much omg, such a disappointment.

I saw NOTHING of Lena and Hana's friendship. Only at the begining of the episode when they were running, the party and when they fought over Alex. Seriously?

Apart from the terrible showcasing of the book, THE CHARACTERS?! They absolutely ruined the characters.


Julian, Lena and Alex







That's Hana, yes, sorry guys
Alex is fine (Daren Kagskoff) .. Julian (Gregg Sulkin) is okay. LENA AS EMMA ROBERTS? No.
Hana as whatever her name is? NOOOOO. Hana is a blonde for God's sake.

I give Delirium the TV show half a star for how hot Alex was, only. (Daren Kagskoff)

Have you guys seen Delirium? What was your opinion on it? And who do you think should play the characters? :) I'd love to discuss this with you.

Much love,
-J

  1. I have not seen the Delirium pilot, mostly because it wasn't picked up (so sad!). Although, Emma Roberts as Lena was a bad, bad idea...I totally agree with you. I only read Delirium, so I don't even know who Julian is, ahaha. BUT, yes, the actor who plays Alex is definitely hot ::swoon::

    I was actually interested in watching The Selection, when it was going to be made into a t.v. show way back when. Whatever happened to that?? haha.

    1. PLEASE DON'T WATCH IT ahaha, they will ruin the book for you!! and if you read the rest of the books please tell me what you thought of them, I'd love to see your reaction to them

      I know righttt?! But I expected Alex to be more scruffy, different hair, with baggy clothes and a tan.. just me?

      Is it good? some people dislike the series, I haven't read them yet. Should I? x

  3. There was a pilot?! Nooooo!! TV adaptations are even more dangerous than movie adaptations! Book adaptations have to be absolutely perfect otherwise it ruins the image you have in your head of the characters! I am definitely NOT watching this!
    Great warning though, I could have trundled on in unknowingly if I hadnt read this blog :D
