The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by Bryan Singer, is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about The Munsters, a family of “monsters” — vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein, and their “plain” cousin (Charity Wakefield) — that will feature striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy Pushing Daisies. O’Connell will play family patriarch, the handsome and gangly Herman Munster, a great dad and devoted husband. He is married to Lily, a vampire, with whom he has fathered a 10-year-old boy, Eddie (Mason Cook). Strong but sentimental, Herman works at a funeral home, and worries that Eddie’s transformation into a werewolf and burgeoning awareness of his family’s origins will crush the boy’s spirit.

Why??????????????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DrRockso - 7/23/2012, 5:47 PM
He don't look like Frankenstein's monster
JOHNNYisQUICK - 7/23/2012, 5:49 PM
I wanna see this but I am extremely confused my O' Connell's human-looking appearance.
superotherside - 7/23/2012, 5:50 PM
Ok... but what ever. Watched a few episodes of this show, it was kinda funny. I actually liked it for the most part...

So is this new thing a comedy? Or action? Or both? I'm confused...
Sortis - 7/23/2012, 5:51 PM
ummm....what?

IIIAdamantiumIII - 7/23/2012, 5:54 PM
so they are all normal
SuperSoldier4734 - 7/23/2012, 5:56 PM
How can it possibly be the Munsters WITHOUT monsters?! "Let's remake Gilligan's Island, but make everyone good looking, and instead of having them be ship-wrecked, let's put them in a mall. People will LOVE it!!"

(FRICK) you Hollywood.

SuperSoldier4734 - LOL

No
Just No
Turtlestrong - 7/23/2012, 5:58 PM
Hmm, it could be alright. I might have to check this out.
nailbiter111 - 7/23/2012, 6:01 PM
one of the biggest issues is that Marilyn is supposed to be the normal one, well than why is she dressed like she is from the original show? You know times have changed since the 60's? So, actually she is the weirdest one of the bunch. Nice job Fuller.
scmittydude - 7/23/2012, 6:05 PM
Jerry Oconnell? oh jeebus no!
darin1174 - 7/23/2012, 6:05 PM
I was a huge fan of the original so I'll give it a try. I suspect under those normal-looking clothes Herman Munster has some hideous scars

Unnecessary remake is unnecessary.

what in the name of all that is holy, is this crap? I really like Eddie Izzard and I'm also a fan of Jerry O'connell, but this really makes me cringe...I wasn't exactly expecting just a modern version of the original, but I at least expected some version of the original Munsters, maybe something subtle but monsters nonetheless..seriously disappointed!
CaptainAmerica1945 - 7/23/2012, 6:27 PM
It looks similar to the show I watched as a child, only completely different!
RaleighAntrobus - 7/23/2012, 6:29 PM
... Why post this shit on this site... ? This has nothing to do with comic books nor movies.
SuperDude001 - 7/23/2012, 6:50 PM
Owlman@ It's not a movie.

RaleighAntrobus @ Correct, but the audiences are very similar in interest. Werewolves, vampires, monsters, and comedy, are all similar to ideas seen in CBMs, so it would be stupid not to at least report this.
storyteller - 7/23/2012, 7:10 PM
Maybe they get weirder in a different picture? The problem with the picture is we don't see a problem.
kraken2k13 - 7/23/2012, 7:11 PM
First of all, not a CBM or series, second, when news of the casting came up, I became fairly optimistic, but with this pictures, there's only one thing to say: W T F is this S H I T!
RaleighAntrobus - 7/23/2012, 7:25 PM
@SuperDude001

I disagree. People clutter this site with enough random bullsh*t.
JR - 7/23/2012, 7:26 PM
what ta hell is this!!
SuperDude001 - 7/23/2012, 7:34 PM
RaleighAntrobus @ I 'll agree there is quite some nonsense posted from time to time but this is hardly RANDOM bulls***.
JredTheRed - 7/23/2012, 8:03 PM
well....i was excited for this....im just confused now
JoeMomma29 - 7/23/2012, 8:06 PM
Maybe they are not in full costume or makeup? Or maybe they transform or look human in front of regular people? Anyways I smell a stinker!
JredTheRed - 7/23/2012, 8:07 PM
@RaleighAntrobus - its just like ghostbusters articles or evil dead remake articles for example. its the same audience. Us "geeks" or whatever you wanna call it, like this kinda stuff. Cult classic, comics, movies, television, cartoons, action figures, books, etc...
JredTheRed - 7/23/2012, 8:09 PM
if you google mockingbird lane there are better pics of charity and eddie in costume so hopefully soon we will have better ones of the others
JredTheRed - 7/23/2012, 8:11 PM
oh and somewhat off topic, is the Teen Wolf show any good?
GUNSMITH - 7/23/2012, 8:28 PM
GUNSMITH - 7/23/2012, 8:31 PM
CHANGE CAN BE GOOD FOR OLD SHOWS..THAT TEENWOLF SHOW IS A FAR CRY FROM MICHAEL J FOX'S MOVIE
NosferatuZodd - 7/23/2012, 9:10 PM
as a fan of the original show *sigh* this offends me to no end
TheGodOfMischief - 7/23/2012, 9:40 PM
Some change can be good, Teen Wolf is a good show. I can accept change, but come on man! Herman should look like Frankenstein IMO. A big goofy oaf with super strength was what made that character so charming and beloved. I'll give it a try though.
Mendenhall12 - 7/23/2012, 10:09 PM
What the hell is this shit
Scion - 7/23/2012, 11:05 PM
For a second I though the kid's name was Mason Cock. That's all I got.
StormLoganSummers - 7/23/2012, 11:08 PM
This isn't pleasing to me.
TheCoon - 7/23/2012, 11:08 PM
The Munsters, now more drama, grounded and more realistic. And not looking like monsters at all?
Sounds familiar and should be a huge success these days.
EasternWind - 7/23/2012, 11:16 PM
What the...?
