Surprising, Stunning and Seriously Enjoyable!
19 January 2017 | by renskedevlieg-695-979649See all my reviews

Oh my god, I'm so happy they decided to make a series out of those books!

When I was a kid I loved the books, they where very easy to read, funny, dark and different then anything else out there. When they made a movie about it I was excited of course, but it didn't turn out very well in my opinion. I didn't like Jim Carey and it just didn't do any justice to the books. When I heard they announced a complete series, I got excited again (yes, I always try to stay positive). Because for me it meant; more time for the story, different actors and another change to be as funny, dark and unique as the book.

Jackpot! They nailed it this time! The humor only was a hundred times more weird and quirky. That was the thing I hoped for most. I think the actors do a great job and they really understand the characters and what they're going through. They finally take the time to tell the story and make everything look as beautiful as I imagined it as a kid. Because the story is very unreal you shouldn't expect anything serious, but you can't do anything else then sympathize with those poor kids. I love how they start out pretty clueless and end up taking control of the shitty situation they're in and try to find the answers themselves.

I'm not going to spoil any of the story, you just have to see it for yourself. I would really recommend it if you're not up to something serious, but if your really want a different experience in storytelling.
