Lemony Snicket seems to take a lot of inspiration from poet Edgar Allen Poe. One of Mr. Poe's sons is named Edgar, while the other is named Albert, the town VFD is overrun with crows, and has a tree called the Nevermore Tree. Also Mr Poe's children discuss at one point if it is a crow or a raven. See more »

I really want to like this show, but its repetitiveness is a bit too much
I want to like this show. I really do. And I know you want to have this show close to the books, but my god if I have to see another episode where no one can tell who the bloody hell Count Olaf is I am seriously going to have a stroke. This show is not for people with high anxiety and just can't deal with shows playing off on your disbelief. Each episode is basically the same. The kids are great, but I can't keep watching the show like this. I just can't take it.
