Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix

"Dear Viewer,

If you are interested in a story with a happy ending, that story is streaming elsewhere. This story has no happy ending, no happy beginning, and very few happy things in the middle."
WHAT-IS: "Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans -- Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix. A Netflix Original Series."

Alas I have no prior knowledge of the book, and although had am interest with the film version over a decade ago (2004 to be exact) - with the “Tim Burton”-esque design taken ahold off my visual senses - which I never did watch the film (blame it on Jim Carrey) … and now THIS version appears in the viewing landscape, looking all so fine, methinks!

Scroll down for still images (courtesy of IMDb), and hope the visuals does not out-style the “content”.
