A Series of Unfortunate Events

Netflix’s adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events is pure Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler). The author wrote much of season one, based on the first four entries in his 13-part series, and he’s remained appropriately faithful to his melancholic stories. The Netflix series doesn’t shy away from the darker themes found in the Baudelaire children’s journey, but it does go for considerably more laughs than the 2004 film adaptation, making it an entertainingly peculiar mix of slapstick and sadness.

Lemony Snicket‘s A Series of Unfortunate Events gets dark. While director Brad Silberling‘s film stayed mostly faithful to the tone of the 13-part series, you can feel his 2004 adaptation sometimes holding back, and earlier cuts of the movie were apparently much darker. Author Daniel Handler‘s books have a sense of humor, but the jokes aren’t always as broad as what we saw in the movie or what we saw in the previews for Netflix’s new series. According to Neil Patrick Harris, who’s playing the villainous Count Olaf, the show gets “shockingly dark.”
