Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance. After his elaborate plans are foiled and his evil intentions are revealed, Count Olaf employs a variety of outlandish disguises to situate himself in the children’s path, causing mayhem for the Baudelaire’s and their subsequent guardians. As the children manage to evade Count Olaf’s scheming attempts to steal their fortune, they pick up clues along the way about their parents’ past. You can see as much in the official trailer below!

I thought the film, LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, was okay, if only feeling like Tim Burton-lite. I've been a little skeptical of this TV show because let's face it; Jim Carrey is a hard act to follow. Still, Neil Patrick Harris looks like he's having fun, and I'm glad they included more of his humor in the trailer above. At the very least, this should give us something interesting to do in the month of January, when some of the "lesser" movies of the year hit cinemas.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events will hit Netflix on January 13th.

The teaser released a while back didn't do much for me, but this looks great, it looks like they captured the spirit of the books and it feels like a natural offshoot of the movie. NPH seems like an inspired choice, although I still think the child actors' resemblance to Liam Aiken and Emily Browning is a little eerie.

Whelp color me impressed. I didn't expect to like what I saw after the movie, but this looks fun. Looking forward to it now, and I think the longer series format will be a huge plus for this story.

I think NPH is doing enough to differentiate himself. There is a tone inherent in the character (I mean, he's a count). And I love Patrick Warburton, so color me interested.

I wish he wasn't trying to Jim Carrey his way through this...

His performance and just the way he sounds is like a cheap imitation of Jim Carrey's turn as the character. IT looks fine and all, I'll watch it for Joan Cusack, but it just seems like NPH isn't being allowed to make the character his own.
