I recently finished watching the Netflix TV series WEDNESDAY for the second time. Yes, I've already watched it twice already and I am actually still willing to re-watch it more. I might be biased but this is truly my kind of humor... dark, sarcastic, no-filter? I just love it! Well, before I blab even more, let's talk about the story first.
What is the story about?
If you're familiar with the story of Addam's Family, it would be easier to recognize the characters of this series. The story focuses on the eldest daughter of the Addam's Family, Wednesday Addams.
Due to her woe-some behavior in her previous school, she was expelled and her parents decided to transfer and enrol her in their alma mater, the infamous school for the outcasts, NEVERMORE ACADEMY.
NEVERMORE is a boarding school for outcasts. Its students consist of psychics, sirens, werewolves, vampires, gorgons and so on. It may be the perfect fit for our main character, but she was adamant to escape the place at first. However, due to some circumstances which somehow caught her attention, she decided to stay.
And so, her adventure full of monster, supernatural and figuring out how relationship works began.
What do I think about it?
If it wasn't obvious enough from my introduction, allow me to state it here again. I love Wednesday... and I'm in love with Jenna Ortega. Looks like Sadie Sink from Stranger Things found her competitor. lol But really, Jenna really did an awesome job in portraying Wednesday. She did so much better than I expected. The other characters in the series were also really interesting. They really shone in their own way.
The story was quite simple and wasn't that unique especially when you have watched series or movies of the same genre, but I still really enjoyed it. I love the dark humor in the series and I really drowned myself in sarcasm. It's my personal preference, but I love characters who eat and breathe sarcasm... maybe because I could somehow relate(?).
Another thing that I really like about watching movies or series in general is character development... and I was able to witness a lot of it in this series. Not only did Wednesday grew, but also the other supporting characters in the series. It felt like I was watching my children grow. hahaha
Despite it involving supernatural abilities and whatnots, the story was still very relatable. It tackled issues of chaotic relationships, psychological issues and how people try to deal with them, be it in a positive or negative way.
All in all, I really enjoyed watching it and I'm really looking forward to watching the second season. I'm glad that I was able to convince my mama to watch it. One of the reasons why I watched it the second time was to watch it together with my mama. She's not much into this genre especially when it's a bit grotesque, but in the end she enjoyed and thought it was worth it. I warn her every time a grotesque scene is about to happen, though... lol
If you still haven't watched it, I hope you do. Thanks for checking this post. See you around! <3
Medyo mindblowing rin te yung ending na yan, feel ko may karugtong. But hindi ako masyadong umaasa kasi mukhang malabo. It's always the innocent talaga no hahaha.
True... it's always the innocent, though I found her quite suspish at some point... hahaha Oo nga eh, coz they originally intended to make it a single season series... but then again, its popularity can't be curbed and the ending was also hinting on a continuation... hopefully~~~ :D
Coincidentally, I have held back a few weeks, due to certain things to watch this series, there is a great duality in it, I hope it causes me those emotions and that taste that has impacted you and left the desire to see the second season. Simplicity can conquer, conquer you to make the universe around you your own.
True... :) I can't agree more. ^^
The truth is that it was very good, although the ending was a little out of the way, but the series was good overall, and they have already announced the second season so we can only wait.
They have?? That's good to know, then. :)
I haven't seen it yet, but I guess if I see so many memes around the social networks, it must be a good one right? Maybe I'll give it a chance, how long does it last?
It was a good one... It has 8 episodes and each episode lasts around 40-50 minutes... :)
I think that this series simplicity and stile is what makes it as good as it is, because it doesn't spin suddenly with an "unexpected" plot twist or something like it, it is great on creating a feeling for the characters and I loved it deeply for it. For me is a solid 7.5 of 10, not perfect, but totally relatable and rewatchable :)
