Series of Unfortunate Events

I know you already heard about Series of Unfortunate Events and even if the premiere was a month ago, it’s causing some buzz: you’ll either love it or hate it.

The eight episodes are based on the first four novels (the whole series has 13 books) and introduce the Baudelaire children: Violet, Klaus and Sunny.

Series Finale

The saddest thing is to say goodbye to our favorite shows. Yeah, we know the feeling. Right now, we can only hope that our beloved characters have the best finale possible.

Bates Motel
