Jenna Ortega stars as the titular Wednesday Addams in Netflix's new series "Wednesday." Director Tim Burton explores mysteries in the character's academy. 

More than 50 million households watched the new Netflix series, “Wednesday,” as the show broke the streaming platform's viewing record in its first week.

“Wednesday” is a series that focuses on the Addams Family daughter, Wednesday. The story dives deep into the mind of the seemingly emotionless but intellectual character of Wednesday Addams as she strives to solve the mysterious incidents that happen at her new school, Nevermore Academy.

Throughout the series, Wednesday is faced with trials and enemies and is forced to make tough decisions on who to trust and who to avoid as she solves the mysteries of the academy.

The show offers a great range of characters with such versatile personalities that it is nearly impossible not to feel attached to the events happening between them.

The series offers great pacing in moments that leave you questioning everything you see. The tosses and turns the show throws you through truly make it phenomenal, and the character development is like no other.

You truly feel as if you have gone through an emotional roller coaster with the characters in the show by the time the series is done, having seen them grow from the first episode to the very end.

The series also offers amazing cinematography with dark and grey tones that do an amazing job at world building and creating a theme for the viewer to enjoy.

The show has amazing special effects as well as one of the main characters is just a hand. The hand character is so well designed that you begin to feel that a moving hand with no body is normal.

"Wednesday" offers an amazing story that is fit for both younger and older audiences. With comedy that will have you hysterical and moments of suspense that leave you at the edge of your seat, "Wednesday" is a treat for anyone who watches.
