What Teens Think of ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Coming to Netflix
My mom is a member of the Netflix Stream Team
When I was in the fifth grade, I started reading the Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. When I read the first book, I instantly had to read all of them. I was lucky to have the whole series at my school library. The first thing I did when my friend told me about the series is go and check out the entire collection. When I heard they were making a Netflix series, I was so happy.
I have been counting down the days until the series comes out. When my mom told me, that Netflix sent her a pre-screening of the first episodes I was literally dying to watch it. When my brother called me downstairs to watch it, I practically fell down the stairs, trying to get there so fast.
It started off just as the books did. It began with a fantastic intro with some of my favorite actresses/actors. All of the characters were excellent at playing the characters from all of the books. Once an episode ended I was eager to watch another until there were no more for us to watch.
It was so fun to watch the Baudelaire children go through all of their many adventures. I was on the edge of the couch the entire time wondering if what happened in the book was going to happen on the screen in front of us. I was so bummed when we finished the last episode, but I looked forward to seeing the next episodes on Netflix.
A Series of Unfortunate Events comes to Netflix on January 13, 2017. This show has been one of my favorite Netflix shows to watch, and I definitely recommend watching it (even if you haven’t read the books.) If you can’t wait for it to come onto Netflix, I would tell you to re-read (or read for the first time) the Series of Unfortunate Events books.
