    and in more ' Bryan Fuller attempts to single handedly kill television' news

    More on The Munsters Revamp | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    It was back in August when word first broke that NBC had tapped “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller to revamp “The Munsters” for the 21st century with more of an edgy, slightly darker hour-long makeover. Not sure if the plan is still to go that route, but whatever Fuller has come up with has NBC executives so happy they may greenlight the series by the end of the week.

    When your network is in the kind of ratings toilet NBC is, you have to think outside the box with your programming. Or you can start stocking up on name brands like Hannibal Lecter and “The Munsters”.

    Deadline Hollywood has also given us a little more insight into what to expect from Fuller’s revamping of the classic 1960’s sitcom:

    Like Fuller’s previous series, Pushing Daisies, the project features striking visuals mixed with all the classic Munsters archetypes. Grandpa Sam Dracula is essentially Dracula who assembled Herman because no man was good enough for his daughter, Lily, a sexy vamp. Lily’s niece, Marilyn the freak, is actually normal, and Lily and Herman’s only child, Eddie, has his werewolf tendencies surface in puberty, forcing the family to relocate to their famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

    The talk is of this new version of “The Munsters” becoming a summer replacement series or some sort of network event for later in the year.

    Bryan Fuller is clearly a very busy man as we also just told you about him being hired by NBC to write their just-announced Hannibal Lecter TV series. Fuller is also penning a Pinnochio movie for Warner Brothers so if he can help turn a puppet into a real boy, maybe he can also help make NBC into a real network again.

    Grimm is not bad but I have to say that, for me anyways, it borders on "meh". Take away that the bad guys of each episode are storybook creatures, it is a mediocre cop show. The creatures thus far are commiting crimes (although horrible) that happen everyday and are commited by regular non-creature scumbags. I am waiting for a troll that deals crack under a bridge.

    It hints that cooler things are on the way but thus far I do not find it brilliant.

    Well I'm usually incredibly forgiving of TV shows.

    For example... I liked Smallville and loved The OC.

    Oh it's totally forgettable, the special effects are low rent at best and the cast is nowhere near as charming or likable as they're meant to be....

    but it's fun enough.

    I hated Heroes because I turned on it. I started out really liking it and there were some episode near the end of the first season that I really really enjoyed. Or at least some scenes. Like when Sylar went to see his mom and wound up killing her and turning her apartment into a snowglobe? ****ing awesome!

    But then they started writing absolute crap episodes and being stupid.

    Also Peter Petrelli has a stupid face.

    And they left that Irish chick in the dystopian future and they

    NEVER

    MENTIONED HER

    AGAIN!!!

    right, i know what you don't like about heroes. i want to know what the difference is between smallville and heroes is to you. i liked watching both for the mindless self-indulgence, but they were both crappy. come on, smallville's writing was no better. like how everyone conveniently got amnesia. near the end, it also became like a soap opera with all the obligatory beefcake (oliver queen and clark) shirtless shots. lol.

    Green Arrow came out shirtless in that show? So that's what I have been missing?
