Review of New NBC Show Mockingbird Lane

Mockingbird Lane airs on Friday nights at 8pm before Grimm! If your not familiar with the famous TV family that resides at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. I wonder where you have been. This of course is the address of everyone's favorite creepy family the Munsters! 

I wasn't sure what to expect from this remake of one of my favorite old shows. With Jerry O'Connell as Herman, Portia De Rossi as Lily, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa. 

The show starts out showcasing Eddie Munsters little problem that came with puberty so the family had to relocate after he attacked his scout troop. So the family has to relocate. Marilyn is the one out with the Realtor looking at a very nice respectable home but she is more interested in the one across the street. That the realtor explains is going to be torn down because it was the house of the hobo killer! She insists that is just what she wants. So the family moves into their famous address.

Herman isn't like he was in the original he is very smart but sensitive. Lily is still enchanting. Grandpa is still a creeper. All in all they kept the story basically the same but there are some changes. I did find some parts of the story very funny. One thing about Grandpa that is much different he is a bit more evil in the new age. 

I look forward to seeing how they develop this series if it's giving a chance.
