Is anyone watching?  It's a bit wacky, but I'm only an episode through.

I saw the first three episodes.  I never read the books,but I liked the show.  NPH and Patrick Warburton are always fun to watch.

Good cast & acting...enjoyed the movie version...but the 1st episode left me feeling very melancholy afterwards.

Not sure if I'm keen on watching any more episodes.

They fucking warned you, bro. They said do not watch this melancholy show, and you still went and watched it. Woe onto you.

The cast is great, though, agreed.

It had some highlights. These are some thoroughly unlikable children though. I liked the movie kids more. I liked the first 4 episodes, but the last 4 were a chore. The kids' desire to still be polite to all the assholes around them isn't endearing or funny.

"It's a costume and he's trying to trick you!"
"It's rude to talk out of turn, children!"

One kid will have a good idea to leave:
"We can't leave without doing this thing."
"That thing can wait! We have to escape!"
"No, we mustn't! This is important!"

The most unfortunate event was me watching all 8 episodes and NPH wasn't always on screen to save the show.

It was ok. Would have been better if I didn't see the movie as the tv show was basically the movie all over again but not as good. Last 2 episodes were new for me though as the movie didn't cover it

Good casting. Except I didn't like NPH count Olaf. Looked the part, had good lines but he just was bland. Kind of wish he altered his voice a little

It's well done but not for me; I'm quite bored.

I finished the series tonight.  This was an amazing series and all the child actors did a great job.

I loved the series overall, but so far the third season has been a chore

The last few episodes really pick up.
