Also Known As:
Meet the Munsters (USA) (working title)
It's just your every day series about your every day American family. You have the Father figure who is the Frankenstein
monster with a kinder gentler brain, you have the dedicated housewife who is a vampire, there's the wise old grandfather whose
also Count Dracula, the overactive son that's also a werewolf and the niece who is just the niece.
These are the adventure of the monster I mean Munster family and how Herman tries to keep a normal family environment
in a world that freaks out at the very look at his face.
I've always been a fan of the show ever since I saw it re-run form when I was just a kid. The clever dialog, the character
interaction. The comedy timing between Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis. Let's face it, one of the best shows on TV but the western
obsessed viewers didn't know what they had and it had a mere two season run. That's a crime, but it's history. 10 STARS.
It doesn't take a genius to know that this is a great show and should be recognized the world over as a great show and I agree
that the viewers of the time period didn't know what they had and were too high or too stuff shirt to realize the brilliance
that is the Munsters. 10 STARS as well.

+ CONCEPT (Interesting twist on the family sitcom.)

+ STORIES (Most of the stories worked.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
