It’s time for another post on A Series of Unfortunate Events. This time I want to shed some light on both the TV show and the movie. Which one is better?
A Series of Unfortunate Events follows Violet, Klaus and Sunny Beaudelair. After a fire destroyed their home and killed their parents, they struggle with their new guardians. The first new care-taker they get is Count Olaf who is only after their money. However, each time the Beaudelair children seem to get rid of him, some new peril awaits them…
There are 13 books in total, and Netflix dedicated 2 episodes to each book. So the first season consists of 8 episodes and deals with the first four books. As that would be far too much for just one movie, only the first three books were adapted in the film.
TV Show vs. Movie:
I was hooked from the first episode on. In this TV show everything plays together perfectly. The casting is amazing, although I had my doubts about some of the actors, I ended up more than delighted. So far they keep very close to the novels, thus really making the story come alive. Furthermore, Lemony Snicket is very present in the TV show in his function as narrator. He is part of every episodes and makes several comments. This may sound a bit weird, as it’s not the usual thing to do, but believe me, it works out wonderfully. Another point I love about the show is the music. The title song for each episode is a little different and especially the song in the last episode was marvellous.
I finally had time to check out what ever Gilmore Girls fan had been dreaming of for 9 years: a sequel. In 2016 Netflix released 4 90 minutes long episodes full of Stars Hollow fun! Let’s see whether they are good…
(Just to warn you, there will be spoilers ahead!)
Rory is struggling a bit with her career, constantly switching between New York, Stars Hollow and London.
In the mean time Emily has to deal with the great loss the family suffered. Richard passed away and she lost her purpose.
As the relationship between them is still not the best, Lorelai is not the biggest help. She’s got her own problems to think about, concerning her private life with Luke as well as her professional life at the Dragonfly Inn. Continue reading
Today’s post is another one of those that have been sitting in my draft folder for ages gathering dust. I honestly don’t know why, I was thrilled when I watched it!
What is it about?
I’ve already talked about the TV show Adventure Time in detail over here. But in season seven they surprised and delighted by devoting eight episode to Marceline the Vampire Queen. She decides she doesn’t want to be a vampire any longer and takes a trip down memory lane. We finally learn how Marceline came to be the Vampire Queen!
Why should you check it out?
Well, Adventure Time itself is one of the weirdest and funniest animated TV shows out there. The characters are beyond fabulous and I just love the colorful land of Ooo. Marceline has always been one of my favourite characters and in this mini series we finally learn about her past. Honestly, these are some of my favourite episodes. So many new characters, so many fantastic ideas! Continue reading
Last month I wrote a post about an amazing TV show I stumbled upon: Ash vs. Evil Dead. I finally had time to check out season 2, so let’s find out whether you should keep on tuning in!
Thought #1 – The Characters:
In season 1 we were introduced to some new characters I grew quite fond of. In season 2 we do not only get some more amazing and surprising cast members, but watch them also gaining more and more depth. Especially when the show turns a bit darker, I was thrilled to find out how each character would handle it. Ash in particular surprised me here… Continue reading
Today I want to talk about one of my favourite animated TV shows: Bob’s Burgers. To celebrate the season finale, which will air soon, I’ll share my thoughts on this season!
Thought #1 – The Episode Titles:
This time, they really excelled themselves! Many of the episode titles are parodies of famous movies. Some of those gems are: Large Brother, Where Fart Thou?, The Last Gingerbreadhouse on the Left, The Grand Mama-Pest Hotel and many more.
To be honest, I was almost more excited to find out the newest episode title, than hear what the episode is actually about. I simply adore these titles and it once more shows with how much love for details Bob’s Burgers is made. Continue reading
Hello my lovely readers!
Here comes another Lemony Snicket post! After I compared the books and the 2004 movie adaptation, I also wanted to shed some light on the recently produced TV show.
A Series of Unfortunate Events follows Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. After a fire destroyed their home and killed their parents, they struggle with their new guardians. The first new care-taker they get is Count Olaf who is only after their money. However, each time the Baudelaire children seem to get rid of him, some new peril awaits them…
There are 13 books in total, and Netflix dedicated 2 episodes to each book. So the first season consists of 8 episodes and deals with the first four books.
Book vs. TV Show:
I’ll begin with the novels. Although Daniel Handler’s book series is intended for children, it is certainly one of the kid’s novel I read as an adult. The characters are relatable and I love that for once kids are taken seriously. Even if you are already grown up you’ll be able to recall that often what you had to say was ignored just because you were a child. Beside the three main characters we get many weird additions to the characters and thus end up surprised each time somebody new shows up.
The setting is rather dark and unusual for a children’s book, which makes it even more enjoyable. It certainly is something different!
Moreover, I need to mention that A Series of Unfortunate Events comes with a great sense of humor. You might not expect it at first, but it made laugh all the time. Continue reading
