4.5/5 Stars

Summary: “After the loss of their parents in a mysterious fire, the three Baudelaire children face trials and tribulations attempting to uncover dark family secrets.”

From the weird intro song, which quickly grows on you, to the odd dialogue that wouldn’t fit in any other show, Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is everything I wanted it to be.

This was the first series of books that I got into after Harry Potter and I read every one except for the last (which kills me).  This series has the perfect blend of humor and tragedy that will leave you wanting more.  I just love the style of it…which is weird, so if you’re not okay with weird, you’re better off not watching.

Lemony Snicket’s interruptions do get to be a little bit much sometimes, but I hope his role in it will come together in the end.  I don’t remember what his deal was in the books and if there is any sort of explanation.

Each book, at least in this season, is split up into two episodes, so make sure you watch them in pairs.  I love this idea.  Instead of drawing out one book into an entire season or blending it all together like they had in the movie, this seems to make the most sense.

The acting is amazing, and not really being a fan of Neil Patrick Harris, I was worried with him playing Count Olaf, but he’s great and whether you were a fan of the books or just like interesting shows, you won’t be disappointed.

Available on Netflix.
