A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 3 Review

I just finished up the 3rd and final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events and overall it was very enjoyable! This season wraps up the final books of the series with 7 episodes. If you liked the first 2 seasons, this season is very similar in style and tone as the Baudelaire orphans continue to try to escape Count Olaf and find peace and safety.

We continue to learn more about the VFD organization and meet new characters along the way. We also see the return of many characters from the first 2 seasons. One of the most noticeable differences is baby sister Sunny who is growing up and is now a toddler. She can now speak and help out her siblings even more than before. Some of my other favorite characters besides Sunny include Esme and Carmelita.

The visual stylings are one of the best parts about this show. They create a fictional world that looks different than what we are used to seeing in most shows. In this season events take place in a snow covered mountain, an underwater submarine, a fancy hotel, and a remote island.

For wrapping up the series, I felt the end of the second to last episode really could have been the finale. It just had the right feel and would have been a good place to wrap it up. There was one more episode after it that was still pretty good but somehow felt a little out of place or unnecessary.

I was still left with some questions at the end of the finale, but overall I was satisfied with the ending. Lemony constantly warned us that this was not a story with a happy ending, but without giving too much away, I think the Baudelaire orphan's situation ended up better than expected.

Overall I highly recommend watching A Series of Unfortunate Events. It is definitely one of my favorite shows available on Netflix.
