The premiere aired Friday 10/26/12 in the hour before Grimm. In checking the website, they are not yet on the schedule, so may be set as a winter replacement.
Mockingbird Lane | New Munsters Remake | NBC
The premiere episode shows a modern re-working of the favorite TV show The Munsters. Only these Munsters are far more creepy and gruesome than the "campy" originals. The cast played well together with Marilyn all grown up and sort of the "normal" lynchpin that gets them into society. Rather than a vampire, Grandpa seems to be more of an ancient demon, while Herman is a flesh and blood man who keeps breaking his heart (literally.) His inner workings bring in a touch of steam punk to the proceedings. Eddie is at werewolf puberty and confused, while Lily wishes she was more nurturing.
The cast is great and well cast in these updated roles. Eddie Izzard is the creepiest of the creepy as Grandpa. If you are looking for a cute and funny show with a catchy theme song, this one isn't for you...but, if you like real family grit (Grandpa isn't going to eat him at the table, is he?) and gore, you just might take your own place at the table.
Oh, at the end of the episode, Eddie received a protector against his wolfish human eating tendencies (which he doesn't want.) Herman and Lily introduced him to a gigantic dragon and he is over the moon with his new dog.
