The first disappointing episode of Series One.
29 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

After the brilliant Rock-A-Bye Munster, this episode seems remarkably average, with an uninspired plot (about a local gas company's plans to lay a pipeline under the Munster's house), and fairly routine comedy: there are the usual bad puns; plenty of jokes based on the family's rather skewed view of life (eg. they think that thunderstorms are great and are upset when the weather clears up); and loads of silly moments as frightened people attempt to flee the scene after having met the Munsters.

It's all too familiar stuff, and one longs for something truly hilarious to happen before the closing credits roll—but it never does.
