LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS
January 1, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: For the third and final season of this charming adaptation of Daniel Handler’s series of Lemony Snicket books, this Netflix series adapts the final books in the canon: The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, and the two perfectly titled adventures, The Penultimate Peril and The End. Patrick Warburton continues as the author’s alter ego, playing Lemony Snicket as a sort of kid-lit Rod Serling (see above). And Neil Patrick Harris, as the recurring and chameleonic villain of the piece, is as much fun as everything else. And everything else includes the dazzling direction by Barry Sonnenfeld, so that’s really saying something.
