    A reunion between Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer.
    Cool.

    I have been waiting for this non-stop since I watched the first season. It was brilliantly done, and had a much better acting job for Count Olaf than the movie ever did. (Though it probably came down to the fact that the movie was far too rushed and needed multiple parts instead…)

    It’ll be interesting to see Richard Castle (Fillion) in this.

    Bizarre. The first season was so bad. NPH was so over the top-a poor man’s Jim Carrey if you will. Didn’t work. Why a season 2?

  5. Lisa says:

    Yeah. My kids loved Lemony Snickett in book form and I loved Fillion in Castle.

    We are all glad to see them come together.

    Excited to see Nathan Fillion work again with Neil Patrick Harris again, and hopefully will have scenes with Tony Hale. Good to see him in another Netflix show after Santa Clarita Diet.

    Impressive casting; so Tony Hale is going to do Veep, Lemony Snicket and (hopefully) Arrested Development
