What do you when you've got a lavishly-produced pilot for a reboot of The Munsters that you've decided against taking to series? Well, if you're NBC, you burn it off on the Friday before Halloween, billing it as a one-night-only special event. And while Mockingbird Lane's mastermind Bryan Fuller still seems to think it could still earn a place on the primetime line-up, we're pretty sure this is the last we'll ever see of the new Munster clan, populated by Eddie Izaard as the vampish Grandpa, Jerry O'Connell as man-made monster Herman, Portia de Rossi as his wife and bloodsucker Lily, Mason Cook as the wolfish Eddie Munster and Charity Wakefield as the sole normal family member, Marilyn. Having now seen what Fuller's take on this unlikely project was, here are three reasons why we'd like to see Mockingbird Lane become an ongoing series... and three reasons why we wouldn't.
