No Jenks for The Hollows CW adaptation?
Kim Harrison posted her own little piece of fan fic this morning with a bit of a cryptic message for those of you with your brains turned on. It looks like there’s a big chance there won’t be a Jenks. I can’t say I’m surprised since this is a new show; if you look up the definition of “cheap” you’d see the CW logo, but it’s still pretty disappointing.
I will watch this anyway to support Kim and The Hollows. She is just as good, if not better than the handful of authors that have made it big. I know The Hollows is my Urban Fantasy drug of choice compared to Twilight and The Vampire Diaries for sure, and we all know how big they are. But it’s just really hard not to imagine the Hollows without our staple foul-mouthed, but loyal-as-all-getout pixy. What are your thoughts?
Update from Cheri:
Okay folks, Erika asked me to post this update.
I tooled around all the comments on FB and on wordpress. That’s over 300 comments, lol, anyway, Kim’s hubby Guy made a comment with hints as to what Kim meant on her fanfic. I took the hints, ran with it and came to the conclusion that the deal with the CW on the Hollows show is over. In other words it sank. She was disappointed of course, her rabid fans- not so much. She was describing what the writers were going to change from the series. First, Kisten would have been a witch and still dating Ivy. No Jenks whatsoever. Trent a crazed Rachel stalker and you can see what this would have done to the fans! Needless to say we are all sad for Kim and Guy and what this would have meant for them in financial gains not to mention a much wider future fan base. Would we have been supportive of her book-based show? Of course. Maybe sometime in the future someone with a better brain than the producers/writers with the CW will come along and make this great for the Harrison’s!
My thoughts: I just don’t get why they can’t do it how it is in the books. They have clear guidelines that keep them from needing to think too much. Even if they took out or modified Jenks’ character, what is wrong with what we already have? I just don’t get it…
