Of course, I’m referring to the Netflix’s series premiere of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. And on Friday the Thirteenth… Mmmwahahahaha! We were given early access to view the series and my children are finding it thoroughly amusing. As a matter of fact, my Little Lady is right next to me streaming episode six.
To be perfectly honest, I had never read any of the books. In my younger years, I didn’t much care for any sort of entertainment that was remotely scary or gloomy. But my children are a different breed and relish dark comedy, even at such an early age. So we started with the first two episodes and they were begging for more.
We made a trip to the library and picked up some of the books in the series so we could read ahead, gage the spook factor and make some comparisons between the book + the series. We think all ASOUE fans will be more than happy with the results.
How do you know if your children are ready for entertainment such as this?
Well, you know your child better than anyone else. For example, in our home, even though our youngest is four years old, as long as she has a blanket + a “safety pillow” she’s up for anything. Have your children watched The Addams Family? Did your children enjoy it? If the answer is yes, then odds are, they’ll love this as well.
Want a sneak peek for yourself? Here are a few of the production stills.
I mean, Baby Sunny is a show stealer, but of course, she is. She too darn cute.
Tomorrow’s the big day! So, will you be watching it with your Littles or enjoying it for yourself once they’re in bed?
