Season one of A Series of Unfortunate Events is unfortunately over. If you loved the show and found yourself unable to look away, we totally understand. We’ll just have to wait until presumably next year for the next installment while we twiddle our thumbs morosely, a word which here means “in a manner irritated by Netflix not producing content quickly enough for our liking.” If you’re also suffering from withdrawal, a word which here means — you get it — feast your eyes on these shows while you wait.
IF YOU LIKE CONSPIRACY, WATCH WESTWORLD
In Westworld, starring Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden, the robotic hosts of a Wild Western-themed amusement park are programmed to allow rich vacationers (“guests”) to do whatever they please. Everything goes well for the guests until some of the hosts realize that their entire lives are a programmed lie. Perfect for those ASOUE watchers intrigued by all the mentions of the mysterious VFD. Watch on HBO. (Photo via HBO)
IF YOU LIKE DARK HUMOR, WATCH DEXTER
In Dexter, starring Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, forensic technician Dexter Morgan leads an average life as a family man — and a vigilante serial killer. If you enjoyed the dark humor in ASOUE, you’ll appreciate Dexter’s sarcastic narration and witty banter. Bet you never thought you’d root for a serial killer. Watch it on Netflix.

IF YOU LIKE NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, WATCH HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
Neil Patrick Harris killed it as the treacherous Count Olaf in ASOUE, but many people know him best as the womanizing Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother. Widely considered the show’s breakout character, we think you’ll find Harris’s performance legen — wait for it — dary. Watch it on Netflix. (Photo via CBS)
IF YOU LIKE SEEING THINGS FROM A KID’S POV, WATCH THE 100
Most TV shows are centered around the adults’ POV, which is part of what makes ASOUE so alluring; we get to see it from the kids’ perspective. The 100, starring Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley and Marie Avgeropoulos, follows a group of 100 kids who are sent down from space to an irradiated Earth, years after a nuclear war destroyed it. We are treated to the adolescents’ views on morals and how to handle situations none of them have ever faced before. Much like the Baudelaires, these kids quickly become friendly with grief. Watch it on Netflix. (Photo via The CW)
