In the theme song it is mentioned that the show is based on the series by Lemony Snicket. The book series was actually written by Daniel Handler. However, Lemony Snicket is his pen name, therefore the series is, actually, created by Lemony Snicket. See more »

I loved the first adaptation of the series (2004 movie) but this live action show is not bad at all. I think the atmosphere could be a tad darker specially if you compare it to the first adaptation. But then again the actors in the first film were a lot older, even the baby. At first i wasn't really feeling the acting from the brothers but that quickly changed.
I am very entertained with the characters now although i wish NPH was better at not being NPH if that makes sense. I don't get the Olaf vibe from him although he really tries. The series overall is pretty great but i just wish the creators would incorporate a darker tone in the next season(s).
