Where had Netflix gone wrong? What about this remake of a series I had loved as a kid made it, frankly, at times uncomfortable to watch? It took me until about halfway through the show’s second season, which was released worldwide on March 28, 2018, to realize that the problem possibly wasn’t with the adaptation, but with me.
See, I am no longer the child I was when I read these books, I am an adult; and thus, it is no longer the children I identify with, but the adults.
And the adults on this show are nothing to be proud of.
