In all honesty I prefer long-form television to the movies. It's so much more convenient

to consume entertainment from the comfort of your own home.

The opening credits are composed of a collage of records (articles, photos and videos) that chronicle the adventures of the Baudelaire children. See more »
Just finished episode one and man is it good. The actors and actresses are on point. Neil Patrick Harris is great as always. If anyone had ever told me Patrick Warburton narrating something was a good idea I would have told them they were crazy, but I would have been dead wrong. He is amazing for this series. Forgive me for not knowing the children's names, but I would be willing to bet that will soon change. They both steal scenes and will probably end up doing a lot of things. The scenery is dark and gloomy like a Tim Burton film. I have never never read the books or watched the movie so I have nothing to compare with. I'm hoping as the series continues it only gets better. So for now I give it a 9 which I do not hand out freely, so that's saying something. Strong opening. Watch it.
