Definitely entertaining, but look away later...
I watched Season 1 of this series with my mom. It was found on Netflix by a friend on Facebook.
This series is entertaining and it teaches us that there is good in life even through the most unfortunate events.
I saw the whole 1st season, and I realized it was a mix between lightheartedness and darkness.
It was weird, but entertaining.
The story involves the mystery of the parents’ house being burned and that the parents were thought to be dead.
The main characters are Klaus and Violet.
The main antagonist was Count Olaf.
There were some funny scenes as the series goes on.
There are also some dark scenes, including the baby on a cage, a giant viper, a knife to the neck by Count Olaf as well as a jump-scare in the end of ep3, and scenes with Olaf in disguises to plot revenge on the main characters.
The last episodes involved Count Olaf (disguised as a woman) hypnotizing Klaus and enslaving him and others about lumberjacking.
A random man’s foot was cut off(though not realistic, no blood), there were skeletons in the closet, and the main man was about to be sawed in half by possessed Klaus.
But thankfully Violet said the secret antidote word and Klaus stopped the sawmill before the man’s doomed.
Of course the evil woman fell into the furnace after the riot came(and her demise was off-screen, thank goodness).
The season 1 finale was definitely the most intense episode of s1, and I was wondering what s2 might be like.
So I wanted to check on here, the star rating, and people are saying the 2nd season is much darker than the 1st, with more violence and lots of sexual innuendos, especially dark dating, intense romance, talk about sexual relationships, drinking and body talk and mentioning dresses and touching certain body parts.
There is said to be language, which there are said to be a few instances of, and it tells us that this series is not as clean as we hoped.
Yet season 3 is said to be even more intense than both s1 & s2.
As far as violence for the next seasons(spoilers), it’s said that there is lots of knifes and swords as well as(spoilers) creepy hospital scenes and murder, and while those actions are off-screen, the aftermath’s are visible with semi-realistic corpses.
Yet there’s also said to be talk about burning characters, which is disturbing to say the least(I’m talking to you Revenge of the Sith).
I could say it’s taking the route Harry Potter went on by becoming more intense as it goes on, and my mom never knew or believed that.
I can’t believe Netflix says it’s family oriented and that they're letting kids watch it, and that it’s only rated PG.
Season 1 may be PG, but with what I heard with Season 2 reviews, s2 should be rated PG-13 and Season 3 maybe R or NC-17.
And I can’t believe our friend didn’t tell us to read the novels.
It’s NOWHERE near as dark as Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (where hundreds of billions of people died in flashes by the Starkiller), but for a family series, it’s said to be pretty intense as the next seasons go on.
I learned that before the series, we should read the novels 1st and read the reviews here and watch by ourself before thinking whether or not it’s ok to watch.
I feel bad for the younger kids who are probably traumatized by the scenes from the next seasons.
I feel like this series is trying to be like Harry Potter with the growing intensity and darkness of the seasons and episodes.
At least s3 is said to be the last season, so that’s as dark as it’ll ever get.
It’s not just a comedy, but a drama, a dramedy, with innuendos and psychological thriller elements.
I’m glad I went on here.
You might want to look away before doing anything else.
P.S. for those who didn’t remember, the baby was voiced by Tara Strong, who did the voice of Timmy Turner from The Fairly OddParents.
No wonder the 2004 movie was on Nickelodeon.
