This series is actually good!!
13 January 2017 | by Gilles10392See all my reviews

I loved the first adaptation of the series (2004 movie) but this live action show is not bad at all. I think the atmosphere could be a tad darker specially if you compare it to the first adaptation. But then again the actors in the first film were a lot older, even the baby. At first i wasn't really feeling the acting from the brothers but that quickly changed.

I am very entertained with the characters now although i wish NPH was better at not being NPH if that makes sense. I don't get the Olaf vibe from him although he really tries. The series overall is pretty great but i just wish the creators would incorporate a darker tone in the next season(s).
