A few days ago I came across the Netflix Original Series “A Series of Unfortunate Events”. I’ve watched the first episode and these are my thoughts about it!
My first impression was the genius intro song! I love series with a darker sense of humor, so this intro song is right in my alley! It makes me quite curious about the rest of the series. The song also sticks in my head, repeating again and again in some sort of endless loop.
I saw the Lemony Snicket movie a while back, and I loved that movie. I’ve never read the book, but it’s certainly on my wishlist. I’m very curious to this series! Like I said: I love series that are a little bit darker, so the atmosphere of this series certainly speaks to me. Bring on the first episode!
Lemony Snicket takes you through the story. Normally, I don’t like this kind of storytelling in a movie or a series. But in this one it actually was quite fitting. It added something to the series. Great job!
The atmosphere is dark with quite a dash of humor. It’s not a series for everybody. You either love it or you hate it. Now that I’ve seen the first episode I want to watch the next one. That’s certainly a good sign! I found myself giggling at some scenes. I’ve heard that the series follows the books quite well, so I’ll take that for granted. I think that if you loved the books, love a darker sense of humor, you’ll absolutely love this series!
One more thing I wanted to say: I love the backgrounds and the costums! You can see that this series has a higher budget. I’m not really impressed by Count Olaf, who is supposed to be the bad guy. I hope this gets better as the series progresses.
I’ve watched the first episode with lots of enthousiasm. I can’t wait to watch the next episode!
