A Series of Unfortunate Events
So it’s been about a month since the end of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. I know that I really love writing about nostalgic things the media has brought back from my childhood and saying great things about them- so this won’t be any different. The drama (which is funny and light enough for kids too) is awesome and Neil Patrick Harris is a total gem as Count Olaf. I actually kinda like the horrible kidnapping arsonist now. And he is far superior to the Jim Carey Olaf (which let’s pretend never happened)
What made me the most happy, and what all remakes should taken note of is just how much people love the remakes when you follow the same story. The show brings all the elements of the books that people love (breaking the third wall, lots of sarcasm) and puts them on the screen. That, truly, is a delightful treat in a world where the name of the movie game is to make money and not to tell the story as written. If you’re thinking about a remake, absolutely take notes from this Very Fascinating Drama. Beatrice would love it.
