Ahhhh I just finished watching the Series of Unfortunate Events Netflix show. Honestly, ASOUE were my favorite books as a kid after Harry Potter. I forgot how freaking much I love them.
I also remember being kind of sad when it ended fairly inconclusively. My memories of that are extremely fuzzy, I remember there were supplemental materials that sort of gave a clearer idea of things. But the last book was basically “SOMETIMES YOU DON’T GET ANSWERS IN LIFE KIDS”.
ANYWAY The Netflix series seems like it’s going to reveal a lot more about the secret organization stuff and it’s such GOOD adaptation for the most part. Like I have zero problems with anything that’s different. A lot of it actually works better than the books because the kids learn that shit is going down a lot earlier and are actively investigating things rather than just kind of bouncing from place to place. Likf the Baudelaires ditching Mr. Poe to go to lumbermill on their own to look for answers rather than being taken there. Like, it makes sense they’d just get sick of his nonsense at some point.
So I am super psyched to see where it goes. I will probs be reblogging gifs later.
Also happy to see my girl Violet not get screwed over and do all the cool stuff she did in the books. I’LL NEVER FORGIVE THAT MOVIE.
