My favorite series of books…turned into a good Netflix show?
Whatever your book choice was in middle school, it was probably made into a movie at some point. Mine was and indeed, it sucked. My favorite series of books to read in middle school was the Series of Unfortunate Events, authored by Lemony Snicket. All twelve books consisted of the unfortunate happenings of the Baudelaire children after their parents died in a house fire. It was so popular at the beginning of the Century for young adult readers that it was made into a movie that came out in 2004. I remember going to see it and most novel turned films, it wasn’t like the books, inaccuracies and such were present in the film. It wasn’t as drama filled as the books were, with their scumbag uncle “Count Olaf” played by Jim Carrey, trying to sabotage their family and take everything that they had left.
With that being said, Netflix has decided to make it a TV show and from what I have heard it is great, with a third season coming for 2019. I have read some critic reviews for it and it seems to be accurate (yes!), entertaining, and the press for it seems to be through the roof. On IMDB, it has a 7.9/10 score and has one win and 14 Emmy nominations from 2017 and 2018. Rotten tomatoes has the first season at a 94 score and 83 audience score. Very good ratings for a novel based show. With all this being said, I think this worth a watch for myself and all of you who enjoyed these books as youngsters who were just getting into complex reading.
