Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events has debuted a brief new teaser, featuring our first look at the Baudelaire orphans and Neil Patrick Harris’ Count Olaf!
The teaser is pretty terrific, giving us a first glimpse at the series’ stunning production design and the seemingly perfectly-cast Baudelaire kids. However, as a HUGE fan of the 2003 Brad Silberling movie, I am so far slightly underwhelmed by Neil Patrick Harris in the Olaf role: he seems to lack some of the nuance and psychotic malevolence that made Jim Carrey’s turn so unforgettable. Also… the make-up is a bit on-the-nose. I hope to be proven wrong in my judgements.
Unfortunate Events Season 1 debuts January 13, 2017 on Netflix.
