Many site have made it public that Mark left the show and Neil entered. Just changed it to fit.
The series has received acclaim, fame, and success since its 1999 debut, spawning an Oscar-winning movie and a video game based off of said movie. {{Lemony|Narrator}} Snicket {{narrat|or}}es throughout, providing commentary, anecdotes, and advice - usually against reading any more of his history of the Baudelaire orphans. While the movie never moved past one installment (based on the first three books), the franchise is not so [[StillbornFranchise stillborn]], as {{Creator/Netflix}} [[http://deadline.com/2014/11/a-series-of-unfortunate-events-tv-show-lemony-snicket-netflix-1201274454/ has obtained the film rights]] and will be adapting the books into a live-action series, set to begin filming in March of 2016 with Barry Sonnenfeld and Mark Hudis as showrunners.

fixed potholed spoiler
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue [[spoiler:Chapter Fourteen]]; arguably a SubvertedTrope because they haven't gone anywhere, although their views have moved on. ''The Beatrice Letters'' form part of an epilogue themselves. Even though the scrambled letters reveal that [[spoiler:" BEATRICE SANK"]], the Baudelaires [[spoiler: are apparently living out their lives doing what they love. Beatrice (that's the Beatrice born in Book 13) is currently trying to find Lemony Snicket, presumably to ask him [[MindScrew what is happening.]] ]]

Deleted "To be fair" type natter
* DirtyCoward: It isn't Aunt Josephine's numerous, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment crippling, irrational phobias]] that qualify her for this title, but rather the way she instantly and shamelessly promises not to reveal Olaf's [[PaperThinDisguise disguise]] and offers for him to take the children when she is threatened. The narrator and the Beaudelaires agree that she was a horrible guardian. To be fair to her, she's widowed, terrified of everything and got no support in life. Can you blame her for what she did?

Moved to YMMV
* LesYay: "Although sadly I believe it will be quite some time before two women can be allowed to marry and I will love you if you have a child, and I will love you if you have two children, or three children, or even more, although I personally think three is plenty, and I will love you if you never marry at all, and never have children, and spend your years wishing you had married me after all, and I must say that on late, cold nights I prefer this scenario out of all the scenarios I have mentioned.

Moved trope to YMMV
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: Olaf tries to Violet to marry him in Book the First, despite being her legal guardian. The creepiness of this is actually played up, culminating in the [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious and horrifying]] line "You may not be my wife, but you are still my daughter, and--"

* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[spoiler: Daniel Handler's reaction to the fact that all of the Wide Window was filmed - "You ''did''?! You filmed '''''the entire segment of the wide window!?''''' - followed by his reaction - "You said this was not in the film!" (paraphrasing!) - concerning the Marvelous Marriage seems to scream of this.

fixed wick
* ConvectionSchmonvection: [[spoiler: Well, technically "Radiation Schmadiation." In the FilmOfTheBook, Klaus uses Olaf's sunlight-refracting weapon to incinerate the wedding contract. The ''instant'' the sunlight hits the paper, it catches on fire. That means the thing was heated to about 400 degrees Farenheit just like ''that.'' Never mind the fact that Klaus [[ImprobableAimingSkills perfectly lined up the device]] to hit such a small target, how come Olaf's hand didn't get singed? Or, you know, the stage didn't catch fire? There should at least have been ''smoke,'' considering how easily the paper went up.]]
