Fun fact: there are 13 books in A Series Of Unfortunate Events, and this guy read every last one of them. The End, the 13th and final entry in the series, wasn’t published until 2006, which is when I was in the seventh grade. Despite probably being a little too old for a children’s book, and being ‘too cool’ to read for fun, I still picked up the book the day it came out and finished it in a weekend. Those stories are amazing. In fact, I’d argue they were just as great as the Harry Potter series.
So, classic genius move by Netflix for turning it into a series. The Jim Carrey-led feature film was far from promising, however, it did show that Lemony Snicket’s world could be translated to the screen.
While details about the show are scarce, we do know that they absolutely nailed the casting by hiring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris for the lead role of Count Olaf.
What I’m wondering is how many episodes/seasons this show will last? Will it only stay within the framework of the novels, or will it expand?
Guess we’ll have to wait until January 13, 2017 to find out.
