“A Series of Unfortunate Events,” created by Mark Hudis and Barry Sonnenfeld is the top series on Netflix at the moment. It is based on the 13 book series “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket. The first season consists of eight episodes, two episodes per book, “The Bad Beginning,” “The Reptile Room,”  “The Wide Window,” and “The Miserable Mill.”

The pitiful, yet intriguing show is about three young, Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, who lose their parents in a terrible fire. They are taken to a guardian, Count Olaf, who is only after the Baudelaire’s fortune. Their lives consist of being taken to a new guardian and battling the wretchedness of Count Olaf repeatedly. Sam Wollaston, from The Guardian states, “If you love the novels, you’ll almost certainly love this.” This is the perfect show for anyone.

The dialogue of the show is edgy and mysterious. The show begins with Lemony Snicket warning the audience to step away from this televised program in order to not witness the unfortunate events that are about to begin. Count Olaf, with his tone, keeps everyone on edge. Surprisingly, sarcasm and comedy aspects are involved throughout the show. The atmosphere and graphics of the show are very well detailed. The background in each scene is filled with melancholy artwork.

The actors Neil Patrick Harris, Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, and Patrick Warburton who play Count Olaf, Violet, Klaus, Sunny, and Lemony Snicket respectively, create the show’s storyline perfectly. Each and everyone of them put a piece into the story. The three child actors have the perfect chemistry, it’s almost shocking that they are not real siblings. In addition, Patrick Warburton makes the secretness in Lemony Snicket come to life. Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris makes the perfect villain, who can be very funny and sarcastic.

There’s no news whether a season two will make an appearance. However, there is hope due to the nine books left in the series that haven’t been made into episodes. It is said that the writer is working on season two at the moment. Overall, this series is a must watch for everyone of all ages. It sticks to the book’s origins almost perfectly. There are few changes, but it doesn’t make the show less enjoyable.

Ditch the Date and Watch a Movie

Well today is Valentine’s Day, but I’m pretty sure not every one of you really care. If you are like me, single and have a lot of time to spare, I recommend you guys to go watch a movie. Every Tuesdays, movie tickets are only $8 at Regal LA Live. You only have to take the Red line and get off at 7th and Metro street.

For those of you that are under the age of 17, listen up what movies you guys should watch if you guys actually go today. Remember the Lego movie from three years ago? Well the sequel, ‘Lego Batman Movie’ is out and it’s top on the box office. The movie is based on DC comics with a twist of humor. If you’re looking for some romance, the theater also shows ‘Space Between Us’ a sci-fi movie about a boy from Mars in search for his father in Earth.

Another movie that might be worth watching today would be ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’. It is said that the sequel is better than the first one. The movie is basically about Keanu Reeves showing off his awesome action moves out for revenge. The movie is rated R, so unless you’re seventeen or older, you will have to visit the theater with a parent. However, don’t ever go with your parents if you are planning to watch ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. The new sequel is said to have more of suspense but it won’t be a good idea to watch with your parents on your side.

With these movies ahead of you, why won’t you and your friends ditch the generic Valentine’s Day dates and watch a $8 movies that’ll hopefully make you feel less lonely this Valentine’s Day.

Senior-write-this more like Senioritis

Many teens slack off during their last year of high school. Once they get their college acceptance letters, they take fewer classes, drop out of extracurricular activities and let their grades slide. Those who aren’t going on to college feel free to “zone out” in class. After all, they believe they’ll never use facts about Shakespeare or the Civil War once they graduate.

In the meantime, senior year often remains a waste of time in other people’s eyes and many adults don’t care. They may view senior year as a transition year between childhood and adulthood. It is the last chance to be free before taking on the responsibility of a job and rent or the challenges of a full load of college courses.


Just being a Hollywood High School senior at itself can be very stressful and make you wanna just let up but don’t. The walk at the bowl is sure to be worth it so keep going and finish strong.
