I always preferred 'The Munsters' to 'The Addams Family'. Both have their own certain charm, though.
We're finally treated to the complete first season of 'The Munsters' on DVD. Personally, I can't wait. The nostalgia that bleeds from this show can only be rivaled by the likes of the original 60's Spider-Man cartoons and the original Star Trek. What to expect of this short-lived 60's sitcom is, corny gags, cheezy sets, inept and silly plots, annoying laugh-track that snickers at anything, goofy endings and ridiculously hammy acting.
Would you really have it any other way?
The cast is quite perfect, though. The bulky, dopey, sensitive, half-wit Frankenstein, Herman. The sultry yet prudish, Lily. The sneaky, sarcastic and "brilliant" mad-scientist, Grandpa. The innocent and always curious werewolf-child, Eddie. And the frightfully normal teenage prom-queen, Marilyn (who is shunned and dubbed a freak for being so ordinary and pretty).
All in all, 'The Munsters' is just pure fun. Grab this DVD if you're into it. If not, then go run to your precious 'Addams Family'.
