That sounds like a good plan.

I haven't seen Neil's portrayal yet, so IDK how he does, but I thought Jim was great!

My sister who's seen the movie preferred Jim Carrey's version now that she's started to watch the show. I haven't seen the movie so I wonder if that will affect the way I see Jim as Olaf when I watch my copy of the movie soon.

Which is kind of one of the reasons why I want to watch the show before the movie, since the show will be more involved, I want that to be my primary image

All in due time I was surprised to see how many people were in this movie, big names wise. I only knew about Jim and the orphans...

Thats what i felt and thats why i was worried about it being the same cause the count is a huge part of the story and now all i see is jim carrys version of him cause i really enjoyed his take on it

The movie did have a lot of great actors in it for sure

It feels like it just slapped all the best actors together doesn't it?

So many fans of the books seem to hate the movie, and i just don't get it. I'm one of the biggest fans you could come across and I loved it. Went to see it in theaters the day it came out and wasn't disappointed.

I get that it wasn't Daniel Handler's vision, but I love the gothic steampunk vibe, and moreover the movie was just stunning visually. The cinematography and production design were some of the best I've seen, and I think Colleen Atwood won an Oscar that year for the costuming.

Anyway, as someone who loves the movie, the pilot episode did throw me a little because of the shift in style (I thought there was too much color at first) but now that I'm almost halfway through I'm totally onboard and I appreciate how much more faithful it is to the books.

Being a film major has nothing to do with it ofc

I love the books and the film. They're both so entertaining I'm right there with you Susan
