Each succeeding season has enthralled me less than the one preceding it, and I can’t say precisely why. I’ve liked the cast and characters* and direction in all three seasons, so the fault doesn’t lie there. Perhaps the pacing/tone just wear thin after a time. Whatever the answer, this season was good, not great, and has left me with no desire to revisit the series.
Also, as a final note, I’ve lost pretty much all interest in ever reading the books. Word of mouth is the series is very faithful to the source material. What’s the point, then, of reading them if they tell essentially the same exact story? Life’s too short to delve into redundancy.
*Except for Lemony Snicket. He’s ceaselessly dour and condescending and I don’t like him very much.
