Good cast, but this didn't really get the book series. Admittedly, it's rather hard series to adapt. Think of a really dark series about horrible people trying to destroy the only innocent people left in the world, and it's all a parody of dark children novels. But it's so damn dark, the fact that it's a parody is supposed to go over your head for years. Hopefully the Netflix series will be better (but probably not).
Criminally underrated gem that features a fantastic cast and their advenutures in a dazzlingly realized world. Beautiful cinematography, production design, and score complete an eerie sense of whimsy. Extra points for Jim Carrey's choice to play Sham as a Newfoundlander.
