TV Review: Netflix's A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS

TV Review: Netflix's A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS

Welcome witches and warlocks,

Today I will be reviewing the dark family series A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS currently available on Netflix.  To best describe the story, I will use my own plot summary:

After their parents die in a fire, three orphans attempt to uncover their family's secrets, while also attempting to escape the clutches of their dastardly uncle, Count Olaf, who will murder anyone that stands in the way of him getting his hands on the family fortune. 

Reading that description it is hard not to think, "This is for families?" and while not every child will enjoy what transpires, I would hazard to guess that most will dig what happens.  My reasoning being, the way the events are presented is so amusing, it will keep most viewers coming back for more.  I mean, how many shows start off warning us that we would be better off watching something else, something more upbeat, and then keep that up throughout?  I can think of very few, this is more of a literary device, but here they are constantly reminding us in the most humorous of ways that nothing that we see is going to end up in happily ever after.
