"Edgy", code word for "We don't have one idea of our own".

The Addams Family was always a better show.
 
2012-02-03 08:55:59 AM
I guess that's better than "The Munsterzz".

Call it what you want, but it will probably suck.

It's also too "edgy" to have viewers.

I can see it now: It's going to be Desperate Housewives, but with Munsters.

I can't wait for NBC to reboot Quantum Leap as an edgy, dark, and gritty show.

I don't care if it's so "edgy" it cuts Nielsen families every time they turn on their television - it's on NBC, so it's already screwed. Here's how this is going to go:

They will run the pilot in a near-primetime slot. After four weeks of level ratings, they will then give the show a two-week "break", and then air the next two or three episodes on a completely different day, in a completely different time slot. Then, the show will get another "break" of indeterminate length, followed by a single airing in yet another, different day and slot.

In other words, they're going to Grimm it to death.

If it does, it'll be replaced with a generic "muscle car" with a license plate "DRGULA" and some "awesome heavy metal" (RE: Nickleback) background music so you know it's tough!

There already was a Munsters reboot back in the late 80's called "The Munsters Today". It was part of a block of realy bad shows that aired on Saturday's here that included "Small Wonder" and some show about an alive ventriloquist dummy starring Stephen Dorff. He didn't play the dummy.
 
2012-02-03 11:13:46 AM
So, it's going to be like Being Human except the Munsters don't think they need to fit in? God, that's dumb.

So from Buffy comedy movie to Buffy edgy TV show but reversed.

How about "Lilly and Marilyn pull a train"
Is that too edgy?
 
2012-02-03 12:22:54 PM
WTH? Munsters is supposed to be a comedy What the hell did they do to it to make it "dark and edgy?

Goddammitsomuch...
 
2012-02-03 12:23:01 PM
The Munsters was awesome! The best of 60's American culture: Ed Roth's cars, garage rock (eg the Standells), spoofing beatniks, vampy women...

Butch Patrick (Eddy Munster) came to see my band play last weekend & had a beer with us. Great guy.

I woulda loved to have been the meat in a Lily/Marilyn sandwich!

Yup. I wasn't going to watch this when it was a Munsters reboot. Now it's an "edgy" reboot about the neighborhood? What a joke.

But the important question is, has it been rastafied the full 10%
 
2012-02-03 01:58:52 PM
Bryan Fuller did "Wonderfalls," so I will give him the benefit of the doubt. It's really hard right now, but dammit, "Wonderfalls."

That's precisely why I like the original BSG much better. I watched a few episodes and it was too depressing.

Actually What a dummy was after the era of small-wonder. Small-wonder was in the 80's

What a dummy was in the early or mid nineties
www.sitcomsonline.com
the block had Harry and the Hendersons sitcom, My secret identity, and I think Superboy.

No the Dragula is at the Volo Museum north of Chicago. You can see for yourself here. No one else can have it! Especially for a crappy movie re-make. As the other poster said there will just be a product placement for Dodge or GM musclecar.

Already been done:

Already remade:

No reason for another.
 
2012-02-03 04:22:45 PM
Well, with so many sitcoms out now playing with the concept of "average family", and Disney throwing several versions of family-with-unusual background out there, perhaps NBC isn't too confident that doing classic-style Munsters is what should be done. What a glorious train wreck they might produce.

I'm thinking more along the lines of "The Munxtrrz."

The 90s ended over a decade ago. Leave the gratuitous edge where it belongs, which isn't in this franchise.
