I've always been a fan of the books and I liked the movie, so I was really excited for the Netflix adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events. If you've never read the books, it's about three recently-orphaned children who are pursued by a villainous actor who wants nothing more than their family fortune told through a strange blend of mystery and black comedy with a lot of witty narration by the titular author Lemony Snicket. The show itself does a great job of capturing the tone of the books, with Patrick Warburton as the perfect Snicket and Neil Patrick Harris as a funny yet despicable Count Olaf. While it doesn't follow the books perfectly, most of the changes are additions to serve the ongoing mystery (which is understandable, the mystery in the books didn't start until around 5 and the show goes through the first 4). The show isn't for everyone, but if you have Netflix I would highly recommend checking it out. It's a very fresh debut for the new series.
If you saw it, what did you think?
