FINALLY! After years of waiting the whimsical and weird world Lemony Snicket gave to us has been successfully portrayed. It's a Pushing Daisies-esque type of show, complete with CGI and quirky characters. Though it is a bit hammy and the tone is significantly less dreary than the books, it is a delight to watch.

A Series of Unfortunate Events is a narrated fantasy drama and a re-imagination of Lemony Snicket's series of books of the same name. The show is an off and whimsical tale of children who face.... again "name of show". They face a dire decent of misery, tribulation and utter inconvenience that will change their lives forever. Neil Patrick Harris delivers a decent depiction of the malicious villain that is trying to take the children's fortune. The show is just a little boring to me...

Are you looking for it to be super dreary because you read the books? It's less dreary. I didn't watch the movie and have no comparison. I have enjoyed this show though. Shot like pushing daisy's meets every Wes Anderson movie except with the opposite color scheme. NPH is a good Olaf and i think netflix did well here.

This Valiant Flamboyant Depiction of Lemony Snicket's novels hold a true whimsy in the hearts of those who know the events that befall on the Baudelaire children. Neil Patrick Harris plays an excellent Count Olaf, very akin to his portrayal of Dr Horrible. Patrick Warbutton gives Lemony Snicket a voice in a way true to the books. A truly horrid affair not worth the time to be put to air. 1 star. ((o

Look away, do not watch this, you will be contantly heartbroken and sad. :'(

No, but really, I read the books in primary school and I was so disappointed by the film with Jim Carrey (he doesn't have a scary bone in his body) and THIS I loved! Really! Can't wait for the rest (because there is loads more to cover here)! ♥♥♥♥♥

A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS - SEASON ONE

It is a world without magic, where all adults are either patronising bureaucrats or deranged arsonists. The few kind-hearted exceptions invariably end up dead. In other words, it's an utter delight.

I recall enjoying the movie many years ago so I thought I'd give this a try. It is a decent show with a talented cast and great visuals, however it is not good enough to justify the need for the film to TV remake.

Neil patrick harris :D!
This show is strange and funny, silly and smart, gloom and dark.
It is about 3 children who lost their parents . They are placed under a (evil) guardian who is just after their money.
