It's a bit creepy that Violet looks so similat to Emily Browning from the movie with Jim Carrey.

i think it was 5 years ago when i finished reading this series. i was 12 and i think i was reading the books for quite a while and honestly, after all these years, i cant possibly be any happier with the outcome. this show has done the books justice so far. its like im reliving my childhood. its funny, complicated, exciting and one of the best mysteries out there. if you havent read the books, i really suggest them. ive read a lot of famous mystery novels and nothing beats how _connected_ and well built this series is. the acting was amazing, the few musics of the show were great, there are some real stars here like neil patrick harris who forever owns my heart, and the mystery of lemony snicket and beatrice feels exactly as perfect as it felt in the books. what a solid show 10/10

So good! It captures the essence of the books perfectly. And Sunny is amazing, couldn't get enough of her!

Pretty boring. The Baudelaires actors are a bit two dimensional but maybe that's because of the script. Don't know why they didn't just get Carrey back to play Olaf.

More like a series of repeated events

boring and obvious, sometimes funny, but not nearly enough to continue watching

The bringing of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events to Netflix has honestly been one of their best decisions they ever made. _Every single thing_ about this series is amazing. This marvelous series has a great cinematography that just has to be seen. It is wonderful. And just few times have I seen a casting this good. You can never do wrong with Neil Patrick Harris, but this seems to be the role of his life. Count Olaf _is_ Neil Patrick Harris and the fact that I honestly might believe that probably says enough, right? If you are a _How I Met Your Mother_ fan, you will not be disappointed, because Barney, Count Olaf and Neil Patrick Harris are all the same. Or that's what they want you to believe. The children are exceptional and marvelous performers. The storytelling never gets in way, because even the writer gets a storyline. And the story itself? I would never doubt Lemony Snicket's writing skills, or his storytelling skills. Because those are breathtaking. From the very first second you will sit on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. I would recommend this show to every soul on this earth and I would want to make a living out of that. I mean it.

Would work better if an Episode hast bout 20 min runtime.

Looks very interesting and promising based on the trailer. The similarities between Count Olaf and How I Met Your Mother's Barney are delicious, making the choice of Neil Patrick Harries obvious!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
