That Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane, sure hasn’t received a lot of attention. It’s a case of a pilot being made and a network deciding to put it on a shelf. Fortunately, we are going to get to see the pilot episode. And honestly? It looks pretty darn good. Maybe if enough of us watch (c’mon, Eddie Izzard as GRAMPA!!!), the show will get picked up.
Then again, maybe not. To me, it seems like NBC just doesn’t know how to market a show like this. And that is just a pity, as it does look really good: funny and macabre. What’s not to like?
I’ll definitely be checking out Mockingbird Lane when it airs on October 26th. With a cast that also includes Portia deRossi and Jerry O’Connell, how can I not watch?
