1. Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf (and his many disguises!)
The costumes, the wigs, the accents — watching Neil Patrick Harris play a different character every two episodes never gets old! This guy is a genius and you know why he is so good? In case you didn’t you, Neil Patrick Harris is LEGENDARY, that’s why!
2. Kids in control!
The Baudelaires are much wiser and more courageous this time around,and they’re also much more proactive and creative, taking matters into their own hands! These kids are a force to be reckoned with and you can bet that in season 2, we’ll be seeing them take the lead!
3. The Quagmire orphans
Why do the Quagmires have the same spyglass? Where is the third Quagmire? And why are their past and present so eerily similar with the Baudelaires? All these questions and more shall be hopefully answered this season, so make sure to stick around to find out!
4. Who knew reality could be so humorous?!
A Series of Unfortunate Events is based on an over-the-top version of reality, with plenty of silliness and sarcasm to go around in this darkly comedic mystery! If and when you find yourself laughing, don’t hold it in and allow yourself to enjoy the proceedings!
5. The new sets and locations!
“All of this show is filmed on soundstages and the sets that they build are uniformly incredible. They’re fully realized,” says Neil Patrick Harris. “It’s as if you are in the greatest queue for a theme park attraction where every texture, every book, every lamp is exactly appropriate.” You’ll find that the show is not only a great watch, it’s a visual treat as well!
6. The guest stars
The guests in this show is a list that will get you giddy! Roger Bart plays the vice-principal, a.k.a. Sunny’s boss, in the Baudelaires’ new school. Other guest stars this season include (but are not limited to) Lucy Punch, Sara Rue, Tony Hale, Robbie Amell, David Alan Grier, and Nathan Fillion!
