I grew up watching The Munsters. It used to play in syndication on a local channel on the weekends, when most other stations played golf or travel shows. It was paired with The Three Stooges, so for a six-year-old, it was as good as cartoons. Many people argue that you are either a Munsters person or an Addams Family person. I love both, but it wasn’t until much later in life that I was introduced to The Addams Family, so my heart lives on Mockingbird Lane.

When I first heard that The Munsters was being rebooted for television, I groaned. While TV reboots tend to do better than film remakes, when NBC announced it would be a “darker, scarier” Munsters, I just lost all hope in the project.

Then I watched it.

And I loved it.
