TVIf you missed the first season of the Netflix TV show, Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events, you’ll want to catch up pronto as season two begins airing on Friday, March 30. Fans of the books will appreciate how faithful the series is to the original books and the actors are amazing. The first season featured the book series’ first four books (The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room, The Wide Window and The Miserable Mill) each told in two parts with many of the lines taken verbatim from the original text. Each pair of episodes were done so well and production values so high, it was like watching a movie.
A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of three orphans and their extraordinary encounters with the devious Count Olaf who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. Foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death, links to a covert organization, and begin to unlock long-held family secrets.
