FINALLY! After years of waiting the whimsical and weird world Lemony Snicket gave to us has been successfully portrayed. It's a Pushing Daisies-esque type of show, complete with CGI and quirky characters. Though it is a bit hammy and the tone is significantly less dreary than the books, it is a delight to watch.

A Series of Unfortunate Events is a narrated fantasy drama and a re-imagination of Lemony Snicket's series of books of the same name. The show is an off and whimsical tale of children who face.... again "name of show". They face a dire decent of misery, tribulation and utter inconvenience that will change their lives forever. Neil Patrick Harris delivers a decent depiction of the malicious villain that is trying to take the children's fortune. The show is just a little boring to me...
