Personal View: A Terrible Article About A TV Show

Alvin N., Staff Reporter

A Series of Unfortunate Events was a classic among the thousands and thousands of books among the shelves. It had recently been adapted as a Netflix Original for Netflix and was received with enthusiasm. It features a star-studded cast, one of which is Neil Patrick Harris. However, it seems as if there has been a decline in viewers based off of the critic Rotten Tomatoes.

The show starts out where someone named Lemony Snicket is telling you about a tragic incident where the mother and father of a particular wealthy triplets is killed. It then follows up with the orphans meeting someone named Count Olaf, and then the story continues where the Orphans always escape from Count Olaf, because of the fact that Count Olaf just wants to steal their vast fortune. It is praised for it’s dark humor, but also disliked for its dark portrayal of sadness.

Personally, I would’ve liked to give a 2.5/5, due to it’s dark humor. However, it is an amazing show and should be at least applauded for trying to do such a good job. So congrats.
