Binge watching might be the best thing streaming has to offer, but Neil Patrick Harris doesn’t want you to watch his "A Series of Unfortunate Events" in one sitting.

The Tony and Emmy award winner instead thinks you should take the time to really enjoy the stories.

“These episodes are almost bespoke little paintings, and each one is a bit similar to the last,” Harris told Cheddar in a recent interview. “If you watch it too fast, then it might wash over you a little bit.”

Based on Lemony Snicket’s book series, the Netflix show centers around the Baudelaire orphans, who can’t escape the grasp of NPH’s Count Olaf, a sinister distant relative vying for the family fortune.

“I’d say watch two episodes, get a whole book’s worth in,” Harris suggests. “Then, you know, go for a jog.”

Season two of the show premieres on Netflix Friday, March 30th.
