Welcome back to the blog, everyone! I hope everyone had a great time over the holiday break, whether with family, friends, or just chilling by yourself. Before we went on vacation, the trailers for Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events came out, but it wasn’t until the break that I actually got some time to sit down and watch them. Now that I have, I’m pretty excited about the series—to an extent.
Netflix has just been rolling out the original series lately, and one of their recent ideas is a TV adaptation of one of my favorite childhood series, A Series of Unfortunate Events. This is yet anotherserieswhich had an extremely regrettable movie adaptation, and so when I saw the Netflix teaser trailer, I thought I’d better re-read the books so I’d be prepared for this new adaptation. However, I was surprised to find that while I still liked the books, I didn’t like them nearly as much as I’d remembered.
