MOCKINGBIRD LANE: DVR ALERT

Friday night, 10/26, 8pm on NBC.

"Mockingbird Lane," Bryan Fuller's reimagining of "The Munsters," features your favorite scary family ... with a few Fuller-esque tweaks.
In the exclusive sneak peek below (bottom), Lily Munster (Portia de Rossi) and Grandpa (Eddie Izzard) arrive at their new home on Mockingbird Lane, but not by a typical means of transportation. Yes, Portia de Rossi can even make arriving in a crate look stylish.
"It's gorgeous, every frame is sumptuous," Fuller told TV Guide. "You get to have these really interesting actors coming in and taking their spins on these classic characters. I love the original 'Munsters' and didn't want to step on it in any way of putting people in Frankenstein makeup and Dracula makeup. So we went our own direction."
"The Munsters" reboot also stars Jerry O’Connell as Herman Munster, Mason Cook as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.
"Mockingbird Lane" is set to scare audiences on Friday, October 26, at 8 p.m. ET as a special Halloween movie. However, the pilot could still become a series. Here's how NBC describes the Halloween special:
Buying a house these days is a nightmare, so Herman and Lily are shocked that no one scooped up the rambling Victorian mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane that was the site of a series of grisly hobo murders. Settling into their new place, they’re quickly onto the mission at hand: to gently ease Eddie into the reality of his werewolf adolescence. But it’s not always so easy to accept that your child is a little “different” from the rest of the kids. Meanwhile, Herman, who works as a funeral director, is suffering from a heart condition. Since he’s made up mostly of spare parts, he knew his makeshift heart would eventually give out. No worries though, because Grandpa, who is pretty good at procuring body parts, is on the case. All Herman cares about is finding a new heart with the same capacity to love Lily as much as he has for so many decades.

Well Sean, from the trailer I'd say I'll like this incarnation.

I’m blown away by the reboot of the Munster’s and I hope NBC orders more episodes. I might have a new primetime favorite show if we get to watch more and I can’t wait. I love my primetime shows and my Hopper DVR, which records them all for me. I never had the chance to get all the programming I wanted until I did an upgrade. Now I know I will always get all my favorite primetime shows recorded every night using the PrimeTime Anytime feature. This will record all four major networks nightly and I don’t have to worry about using all the DVRs at home, or tying up all the TV’s at once for my shows. I didn’t know about this sweet feature until my coworker at DISH told me about it. No more timer conflicts or multiple DVRs, which created one big mess.

It's visually stunning and the actors are great... But it lacks the fun of the original Munster's.

Sean, watched the first episode while we were with friends this weekend. It was as good as I expected.
