Netflix has just released the first teaser for its highly anticipated adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
We’re introduced to the sinister Count Olaf, played by an unrecognizable Neil Patrick Harris, and looking much scarier than he does at Halloween.
I loved the first few books of the series, despite repeated pleas from the books’ mysterious narrator to stop reading, because things were only going to get much worse. He recommended switching to something like The Littlest Elf.
All eight episodes of A Series of Unfortunate Events will premiere on Netflix on 13 January 2017. That is, naturally, Friday the Thirteenth, because of course it is.
