User Reviews

 
The unfortunate story of the Baudelaire orphans seems to have finally gotten a worthy adaptation.
13 January 2017 | by oslunSee all my reviews

The show stands on it's own, a wonderful silly and atmospheric piece of work. It has well written jokes and a good story line. It will take you on an incredible adventure as we get to follow the Baudelaire orphans and their beloved count Olaf. It has a bit of dark but yet silly humor, and all the actors give an outstanding performance! There were very few flaws and one thing that did bother was from time to time the jokes were a bit dry. But most of the time it was an absolutely wonderful and hysterical adventure! I can proudly recommend this Netflix original to anyone who wants a bit a of a different story or just wants to watch a great show with laughter and excitement through out! To all those who were a fan of the books I can say that you will enjoy each and every episode! 9/10
