Lemony Snicket: 12 Books in 120 Seconds

"12 Books in 120 Seconds," the first in a series of three panic-stricken videos leading up to THE END. Narrated by the infamous Tim Curry and with music by the Gothic Archies, it threatens to expose you to everything the Baudelaire orphans have suffered so far, in less time than it takes to brush one's teeth.
"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
- Carl Sagan, in his message to future explorers of Mars.
