Lemony Snicket’s new Netflix series, A Series of Unfortunate Events is receiving outstanding reviews. It was able to take a classic childhood novel and turn it into an amazing Netflix program.

Netflix has tried to take on this project before in a movie, but miserably failed. This series however, has successfully captured the mystery and allure for which this book is known. The casting is fantastic and allows creative genius to shine through. Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf is a perfect choice because he exudes the scariness it takes to play the evil villain, but adds a comedic flare that is amazing to watch.

The children, Violet, Claus, and Sunny are exactly what people would expect from reading the book. Their brilliant, creative minds get a chance to shine, and Sunny provides the perfect amount of cuteness that will make the audience smile, but not get too happy because they still are watching a tragic story about the unfortunate fate of these children.

The most brilliant part about this captivating series is the never ending roller

coaster it takes the audience on. Just when things are looking good for the children, they fall right back into their tragic fate, and the viewers fall with them.

There are good people in the children’s lives that make them feel like humanity is just as good as it is bad, but they soon realize that whoever told them that cliche phrase about the good outweighing the bad was lying. The new narrator, Patrick Warburton, constantly tries to warn the audience that the story will not get better, but they won’t listen. They will constantly be thrilled and want to see more.

The fact that the series only has eight episodes will allow people to watch them all and not feel overwhelmed. Although this series is for entertainment, It also teaches lessons through the story. The children are always being positive no matter what awful event is thrown their way, which sends a message to children that they too can be optimistic in the face of adversity. This is a series that the whole family will want to watch.
