News & Interviews for A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season 1
A little too Lemony, but genial, well-produced and presumably faithful to the Lemony Snicket vision.
It's never as clever as it wants to be, and the dark, dry sense of humor never shines because it relies on Handler's dialogue instead of sharp line-reading or editing to make its point.
Just as the blunt-in-message and beautiful-to-behold production design works in the series' favor by leaning into its allusions, A Series of Unfortunate Events proves as inspirational and endearing as it claims to be forlorn and heartbreaking.
Although the Baudelaire children are not villains, in its own way, this show has some similarities to that film, handling the mix between pure genre and down-to-earth coming of age story with incredible adeptness.
Lemony Snicket is dark and funny, campy and whimsical, based on the book series about the three Baudelaire orphans, trying to elude greedy and/or oblivious relatives until they can inherit their fortune.
