So, producer Bryan Fuller is rebooting The Munsters as an hour long television series.  Tentatively called Mockinbird Lane, it's gonna deal with the weirdness in the Munsters little part of the neighborhood.

From what's been announced, it's gonna be a part drama/part comedy/part supernatural series.  I liked Fuller's past shows Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies, so I'm a bit tempted with this.

However, they said that the makeup would be 'very toned down' from the original series.

So far, they announced Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster, Portia De Rossi as Lily, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa.

Good grief. How many times they gonna remake this...

Anyway... I'm a huge fan of the original so I'll check it out. I just hope it's better then the sucky 90's version.

Jerry O'Connell?

Nope.

That's what I was thinking....but......I may at least watch the first episode. The original is a classic in my book,though.

I think they shouls hire Butch Patrick to come back and play Eddie Munster. He should wear his old, original Eddie wardrobe and be this dysfunctional 50 year old still living with his parents.

I actually like the idea of a fifty year old Butch Patrick doing that.

I do actually like the three leads in this, but nobody can replace Gwynne, DeCarlo or Al Lewis.

I'm kind of intrigued by Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster. It's one of those casting choices that seems strange at first, but then starts to make sense. At the very least, he's a decent actor, and somebody must have given the matter some thought before choosing him, because he's far from an obvious choice. Overall, the casting choices are interesting.

I get the impression that this show is being taken seriously, and will have a different tone from the original, so I doubt it will turn out anything like the show from the 90s.

From what I've read, it's been in the works for years. They wanna approach it in a way that's respectful to the original, yet 'new' enough that the new producers can add their own touch.

Again, producer Bryan Fuller did have two GREAT shows: Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls. They're quirky supernatural dramas with a hint of sci~fi and such.

They should have a horror movie based on The Munsters.

Director Rob Zombie, FX by Tom Savini.  That would be a blast! Twirling

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.
