And alga, she found the show Ghastly, unwatchable.

Ha-ha!  I found the book unreadable twelve years ago, abandoning it soon
after the library fire; yet I found the tv show (first half, so far) quite
entertaining, at times I laughed out loud.

I was hesitant to watch it at all, since I didn't like the book, but I also
remembered how I didn't like the most-recent, live-action ALICE IN
WONDERLAND (with Martin Short as Mad Hatter) when it first ran on tv, yet I
liked it when I saw the thing on video . . . which made me suspect that the
commercial interruptions were what was really bothering me the most.

Different people, different tastes--as usual.
