In the first part of Penultimate Peril, Carmelita Spats says she wants to go to Littlest Elf Land. This is a reference to the 2004 movie of the same name, where said book is mentioned a few times. 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 »

Very good.They change some things from the books, but the changes are justified. You don't have to read the books to get what's happening. I love what they did with Lemony Snicket. The first episode was a bit awkward, but overall, as it progressed, I found myself enjoying it more. I think the kids were cast well. I liked the cheesy cheery settings in the first and while sometimes the effects are a bit lacking, I didn't have too much of a problem. it sticks to the story very well, and I think the casting was done well, especially with Count Olaf. He's goofy, but still a valid threat against the kids. The song at the end of the last episode was unexpected, but I love it! Can't wait for the next episode.
