I don't get Netflix Streaming, unfortunately. But as someone who loved the film I hope they do a good job with this, though having Warburton as Snicket is a good sign.

"Though"? Was that a typo for "NOT a good sign"?
In the books, Snicket lives in the same world as our characters' "true story" and teases about his shadowy identity, and Jude Law in the movie brought off the author's deadpan facetiousness perfectly--He's not supposed to be a plastic self-delusional Tick.

Yeah, wasn't a fan of Snicket showing his face and coming off all sneaky gameshow host.

I do hope, as one of the talkbacks says, that they keep to the order of the books this time.
