I left the episode wanting to see more of where Fuller and company wanted to take these Munsters, which is a good thing - leaving your audience wanting more is a positive, obviously.

Outrageous, eccentric, funny, campy - and too creepy for small kids. A real shame this isn't sticking around.

The hour plays like the failed pilot that it is, with a lot of exposition and an episode-ending tease that's intended to leave us wanting more.

There's something admirable about a big swing, even when it doesn't connect.

Not particularly scary, not particularly funny, this little-pilot-lost doesn't quite get there, despite an impressive pedigree.

Mockingbird Lane was a sumptuous, spooky, and far more graphic reimagining of Herman, Lily, and their postnuclear family.

It takes the idea of The Munsters actually being a horror piece a bit more seriously than the sitcom did, but it's mostly here to have fun.

This odd introduction for this proposed series is either a burn-off or a tryout and considering the day and time, burn-off is most likely.

As a one-shot the thing is just sort of weird - like the Munster family itself, an uneasy addition to an otherwise garden-variety neighborhood.

Kids will like Mockingbird Lane well enough.
