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 »

Let me start by saying I grew up with the book series, so I was prepared to (at least partially) dislike the tv series under the notion that "The book is always better". Well, I was delightfully surprised by the quality of the show: first of all, the casting is excellent --something that rarely happens with book adaptations. The black humor of the books is also flawlessly conveyed and even enhanced, I cannot recommend this show enough! It is very well-paced, beautifully shot and perfectly adapted for the now adult fans of the books to enjoy the story once again. The second season is even better than the first, which was also a great success. It deservess a 10/10 rating, I'd rate it even higher if I could!
