Netflix recommends, “if you like stories with happy endings, it’s streaming elsewhere.” In this hilarious, but somewhat depressing trailer the kids are put to work at the mill. They should be so lucky. And it looks like all 3 of them are made to sleep on a tiny bed that’s not even big enough for one person.
In it the kids are seen doing their best to escape the clutches of count Olaf.
If you are interested in a story with a happy ending, that story is streaming elsewhere. This story has no happy ending, no happy beginning, and very few happy things in the middle.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance.

The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix.
