Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ comes to Netflix
Earlier this month, Netflix released a teaser trailer for their adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events.”
I had nostalgia vibes throughout the whole trailer.
So, you may be wondering, who exactly is going to benefit from this show? Well, that, of course, would be any ‘90s kid – or really any kid – who fell in love with the novels and the film, and any kid who will be introduced to them because of this remake.
Count Olaf still reminds me of that annoying uncle that manages to make it to the family reunions, somehow, without an invite. For those of you who still haven’t seen or read this classic, you’re in for quite a treat.
The Baudelaire orphans are seen arriving at the doorstep of their new guardian, Count Olaf, played by Neil Patrick Harris, and immediately they can tell that something is wrong.
Olaf’s interest in the children is too intense, and soon the children set out to uncover who he really is.
They discover that Olaf is only interested in the children because of the massive inheritance their parents left them, and that he wants to claim the money for himself.
The children are soon removed from his custody and are then placed with a series of different guardians.
However, that doesn’t stop Olaf from trying to get the children back.
This is definitely a show to watch for. So grab your significant other, a friend or your pillow – it’s all cool whichever one you decide on – and save the date for Jan. 13, 2017 when “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is set to premiere in full on Netflix.
