    WTF? Where's the green skin?

    Here it is, the very first image from Bryan Fuller's Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane. The cast looks — well, like a random group of good looking people. Now we understand why they cast Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster — no giant head needed. Because this is the house of photogenic monsters.



    As we've stated before, we'd follow Fuller into a fire if he said there was good TV there, but we're not sure what to make of this serious spin on the silly 1960s series. In this interview with The Hollywood Reporter Fuller explains just how dark he's going to go into the mental neurosis of his new family. The Munsters will do what monsters do — such as eating people.

    "The Munsters actually do what monsters do. They eat people and they have to live with the ramifications of being monstrous. It's like grounding it in a reality because the half-hour was a sitcom, we saw the monsters: they were monsters on the outside and weren't monsters on the inside. For us, they're monsters outside and inside, and we get to double our story..."

    "It's an ensemble, but the emotional point of view is from Herman because it really is about a father who is realizing his child is taking after the other side of the family. He has so few things in his life that are his, and his son Eddie was one of them - and now Eddie's more like Grandpa than he is Herman. Everything is a metaphor for something that you can identify with in a relationship; the fact that Herman is in a constant state of decay, and he's married to someone who doesn't age. We get to play with all those insecurities. The fact that he was made by his father-in-law and then has to live up to those standards; he's always trying to find his own identity.

    No, he's playing Grandpa, Jerry O'Connell is Herman. They mush have been on crack when they green lit this.

    I'll take a look when it airs but I am not expecting much. I do not think you can top the original.

    Are you insecure about your age or did mommy not breast feed you long enough?

    They eat people? Kinda hard to empathize and care about a group of characters who are cannibals.

    :jj: I bet Izzard brings a lot to the grandpa role. I can't see the rest of them holding up though. I'll check it out for sure.

    It doesn't appear to be a straight out comedy. That's gonna kind of suck. Why did they even bother to call them the Munsters?

    Jerry O'Connell is too much of a goofball for a 'serious' role.
