Additionally, Nathan Fillion has a guest-spot in several season two episodes. Fillion co-starred with Harris in the web-series "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog."TedStixon
Trivia: Most of the episodes are written by franchise creator Daniel Handler, whom wrote all 13 of the original novels under the pen-name "Lemony Snicket." Handler also appears in a cameo in Season One as a fish-merchant, who quotes the song novelty comedy song "Fish Heads." ("Fish heads! Fish heads! Rolly-polly fish heads!").TedStixon
Trivia: Not a mistake, but a rather interesting coincidence: The series main composer is James Newton Howard, whom was nominated for an Academy Award in 2005 for his musical work in the film "The Village." Somewhat coincidentally, another nominee that year was Thomas Newman. And the film Newman was nominated for? The prior 2004 film adaptation of "A Series of Unfortunate Events."TedStixon
Count Olaf: In all honesty I prefer long-form television to the movies. It's so much more convenient to consume entertainment from the comfort of your own home.
