After the Baudelaire parents die in a terrible fire, the Baudelaire orphans search for their families secrets and get them and their fortune away from the terrible grasp of the sinister Count Olaf as he moves with them between different guardians in disguise.Written by
In Season 1 Episode 3 Count Olaf makes fun of the movie theater calling it a "nickelodeon." This was the second time in the episode he made a nod to the tv show being better, the first was at dinner. See more »
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 picked this for the dogs to watch (so they wouldn't feel alone and bark at every noise), but instead I sat and watched. It took me longer then I would like to admit, to see that Count Olaf is played by beloved Neil Patrick Harris. I thought the casting was *PERFECT* (a word I do not use often), and I found myself laughing during every episode. I can not write a review as worthy as I feel this series deserves. So I will sum my opinion of this artwork up in the next sentence. The TV series A Series of Unfortunate Events had perfect casting, great direction, amazing scenes, decent cgi, great plot line, humour, woe, and is all around a very well executed piece of work worth watching and awarding. Who ever is responsible for doing all this Thank You. It has been a while since I was impressed and so entertained by a TV series. PLEASE MAKE MORE!!
