This post will contain spoilers about episode 5 & 6 of A Series of Unfortunate Events
(the Netflix series)
Alright… Honestly, I think this will be a very short post.
I don’t have that much to say about it because I’ve tried to watch these two episodes with some interest, but I just couldn’t. For some reason The Wide Window wasn’t as interesting as the other episodes I’ve seen so far.
I have to day though that Josephine was played by a great actress, and that the fact that she was always on the verge of complete hysteria, was amazing.
Of course, there were other amusing things in these episodes, and some things were even brutal, but other than that… I wasn’t all that interested.
My favourite scene is most definitely the scene near the end of episode 6, when Mr. Poe finally discovers that the captain is count Olaf. While Mr. Poe is talking to count Olaf, the children sneak away, and when he turns around to see the children; count Olaf and his entourage slip away (again). In the end, he is left all alone, and that was funny and sad at the same time. So yes, I did feel for the little guy at that moment.
Now that I am nearing the end of the season I really do want to know how this is going to end. It’s just a shame that these two episodes didn’t really work for me.

What did you think of these two episodes? Were you, like me, not that interested? Or did you actually really like The Wide Window? Do let me know in the comment section below! Next Saturday (yes, I’ve decided to simply say Saturday), my thoughts on the last two episodes of this season! I really hope that it’s going to be a blast.
