I have been following the netflix series (haven't finished this season so please no spoilers.) I remember the books fondly from when I was a child but luckily it's been so long since I read them that I don't remember what happens. Back along for the ride I guess!

I also loved this series.

Count Olaf <3 Nobody understands you. :C
funnily enough I'm watching this series with my dad and he HATES Olaf, every episode I have to try and convince him why he is a great character! :eek:

Should we write a list of his glorious attributes?

Viewers of a delicate constitution, a word which here means people who don't revel in tales of monobrowed counts pursuing orphans' fortunes, are advised to watch the littlest elf instead.

Yep, it's one of the better Netflix shows. Also Neil Patrick Harris is amazing as the reoccurring antagonist. Also Patrick Warburton.

Oh, I really loved these books, when they came out, especially the earlier ones...the movie was lousy, but I will have to check this show out! Odd, I never got into the Harry Potter Books and films, but I really, really adored this series.

So...am I the only one who vastly prefers the Jim Carrey movie here? I really wanted to like this series, and the technical quality is amazing, but I find myself unable to get into it as much as the previous film.

It took the story fromthe books and murdered it. It also lacked much of the whimsy of the books, coming across as genuinely mean-spirited.

See...I feel the same way but opposite - I felt the series was way more mean-spirited which is why I had a hard time getting into it. The movie had fun with itself.

Why? I know it wasn't really a box office hit, but I've never heard anyone speak particularly ill of it. Most people I kniw like it fine enough. Why the backlash?

The film's storyline was a patch-work quilt of several books slammed together. I don't think the narrative even happens in the right order.

You need to increase your evil schemes.

YES, MY ASOUE PEOPLE!!
I read the books when they first came out back when I was 9! I, also, never got into the Harry Potter thing other than simply liking the movies. I got my love of writing and word-play from those books. I remember getting the first three from the legendary Scholastic Book Fair and read through the first one in a few hours (coming from someone who attempted to start reading The Silmarillion in 4th grade).
My husband and I just finished watching the third and final season and I loved it so so much!! All of the young actors/actresses were on point and NPH as Olaf was amazing! I loved that the hench people got a bit more attention as well. I feel like I'll need to rewatch at some point! I plan on recollecting the books and doing a re-read as I feel like re-reading as an adult would be so much fun!
