A Series of Unfortunate Events – Season 2

Hello my lovely readers!
On 30th March Netflix finally released the long-awaited second season of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The 10 episodes cover the novels 5 to 9 of Daniel Handler’s famous series. Let’s see whether the second season is as good as the first one!

 

The Plot:
At the end of the last season, the Beaudelairs made it to Prufrock Preparatory School. So, in the first two episodes the orphans try to get as comfortable was possible which is certainly a challenge, especially when Count Olaf returns. Violet, Klaus and Sunny try to escape his clutches and figure out the mystery surrounding their parents. They have to deal with an ersatz elevator, a vile village, a hostile hospital and a carnivorous carnival. However, their series of unfortunate events is far from over…

A Series of Unfortunate Events is the of show that requires a certain mood to watch, otherwise the whole thing can get on your nerves pretty easily. However, after the first to episodes I was back in the game and binge-watching. Continue reading
