    Omg the show brought back so many childhood memories! Waiting anxiously for the latest book in the series to come out and my asshole teachers telling me I was too dumb to read them bc they were "way above my reading level" lol. But reading them anyway actually made me smarter. The next year or so I was already reading at a high school level.

    Lemony Snickets is seriously one of the best series of all time. So well done and an amazing cast. The Beudelaires were great and Count Olaf went from despicable to relatable to almost likable. I don’t think there’ll ever be another show quite like it. It’s up there with Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, NPH should be very proud.

    i notice gay people are alot like black people, they tend to get more flamboyant around there own kind......... black people just get cooler, louder and have much more colorful references to devalue the opposite sex while staying with the always entertaining anecdotes that make whites feel like, it would be better for us if we just stole the culture........ so thats fun

      Victoria Odegaard but Olaf’s tattoo wasnt the VFD logo it was just an eye so they clearly were just ignoring it

    • Victoria Odegaard
      Victoria Odegaard 3 months ago +1

      +Henry Ruston Yeah, but I mean that was because you don't find out about VFD until later in the series and they only smushed the first three books into the film... but VFD is one of the most interesting parts of it
