Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events heads to Netflix with 8 episodes on Friday the 13th (appropriate), as bad luck follows Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, the poor children for whom disaster follows. Neil Patrick Harris plays the insufferable Count Olaf, guaranteeing a gleeful ride. Wanna know the facts?
Check out the clip below (plus bonus Golden Globe clip).
The clip starts out with Lemony Snicket himself (Patrick Warburton) presenting the facts of the Baudelaire family: “They lived in a mansion, as beautiful as it was flammable.” Orphaned, the children were sent to various relatives, but those options petered out due to murder, betrayal, herpetology, inconvenience, etc. aka “A Series of Unfortunate Events.”
This should be fun.
A Series of Unfortunate Events airs January 13th, 2017 on Netflix.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix. A Netflix Original Series.”

Nominating Count Olaf for any sort of award would indeed be an unfortunate event. Please avert your gaze if you wish to retain any semblance of respect for the theatrical arts.
