Netflix's autoplay feature is great – it means you can binge-watch an entire series without lifting a finger. However, in its haste, it cuts out the opening credits to said series. Usually that's a plus, as when you're binging your way through a 22-episode series, you can get a little sick of hearing the theme song over and over. But in one case, it means viewers miss out on vital information.

The show in question is 'A Series of Unfortunate Events', which is based on the bestselling Lemony Snicket children's books. It launched on Friday. Its theme song changes throughout the series, meaning that if you skip it, you would miss out on some of the story.

Thankfully, Netflix has tweaked its autoplay feature so fans will no longer be left in the dark.

"The autoplay has been corrected and will now start with the opening credits," a Netflix spokesperson told

We presume the feature will remain unchanged for all other shows. If you have any issues, let us know.
