Critic Reviews for A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

A tragic story of loss, grief, and how life grows more and more unfair with each passing year lived, but the truths told in these three excellent seasons are pushed into the realm of entertainment by the enthusiasm and talent of its storytellers.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

As Olaf, Neil Patrick Harris gets closer than the crazy-funny Jim Carrey did (in 2004) to Olaf's flawed sincerity, his pompousness that covers up his complicated past.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A Series of Unfortunate Events delivers its tightest, most exciting season yet in its final run of episodes.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

The adaptation of the last four titles in Lemony Snicket's famous series of books is beautifully made and a satisfying conclusion, thanks to Daniel Handler and Barry Sonnenfeld.

May 10, 2021 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

ASOUE is a timely gift for the present day, a rousing message to clever kids and fed up adults that implore us to use persistence, logic, and teamwork to stop the world from falling apart around us.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

A bittersweet end (as it could not be otherwise) but which delights for all of us who have been following the misfortunes of these orphans for three years. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The extraordinary aesthetic of the final season, whisking you away to several different places, adds dressing to what is a fantastically told story.

Jan 7, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Ironically, the most contentious thing about the conclusion of the TV series may be its willingness to answer the big questions, putting an end to years of online debate.

Jan 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The final season gives some of the bad guys deeper motives and moments of true empathy, but the children never forget that the bad guys are still the bad guys for a reason.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

By deepening the characterizations of the Baudelaires, Lemony Snicket, and Count Olaf, the main cast gets plenty of great material to work with and delivers uniformly moving performances.

Jan 3, 2019 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

A Series of Unfortunate Events season 3 deepens the characters we've known and answers questions we've had. All while doubling down on the lesson that ignorance and selfishness are the true enemies of society. That's a timeless way to go out on.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's third and final season... is a masterclass in how to build a faithful adaptation, and how to see it to the end gracefully.
