"Wednesday" has all the tools to satisfy initial interest.

It is led by acclaimed director Tim Burton, who directed half of the episodes of the new Netflix drama, which is essentially a comeback of the iconic "Addams Family" - a franchise that has existed for almost a century and evolved from comics to animated series and then to blockbuster movies.

Now the prequel series is out, and it is morbid, grave and cynical in the best tradition.

The series is based on the girl of the family, Wednesday, with her sidekick "Davar" (an amputated palm) by her side.

There is a small role for Christina Ricci, and a huge role for Jenna Ortega who steps into her shoes and plays a mature and gloomy Wednesday in a mesmerizing and overwhelming way.
