The first time I heard about Munsters was two years ago when I looked up The Addams family original tv show. As someone who didn’t grow up in America and didn’t watch reruns of old sitcoms
(like really old) like the Addams family, I was intrigued. The only thing why I didn’t watch any episodes till this day was because they are in black and white, and to be honest this wasn’t something I was into. But now finding all of the episodes on Youtube in amazing quality I was like”Why not watch it!”. I watched the first season this week and here are my thoughts…
Who are the Munsters?
So the family consists of 5 family members we see in every episode(and some more who come and go). There are Lily(vampire) and Herman(Frankensteins monster), a married couple, they have a son whose name is Eddie(a werewolf).Grandpa(Lilies dad and a vampire) who makes different experiments in the basement, and then we have the only “normal” family member Marylin(she is Lilie’s niece). She is a “normal” teen who wants to find love and be more like her family. The Munsters live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California. And they have a pet Dragon. The running gag of the series is that the family, while decidedly odd, consider themselves fairly typical working-class people of the era.
My Favorite Family member- Lily
In the first season, she is played by Yvonne De Carlo , and I can say I loved her in this role! I loved her look and how involved she was with her son and niece. And I can say …that contour ,giiirrrlll what are you using?!
A family of friendly monsters have misadventures, never quite understanding why people react to them so strangely. The Munsters are a weird but honest family. … Marilyn (their niece) is the only normal one (that is the ugly duck of the family). I can say just one thing…Why isn’t it remade?! I would love to see a 2020 spin on this unique family and how they deal with everyday life. I really like that this family is not overly rich like The Addams, but are just middle classed family living quietly in the suburbs, thinking about kids’ college funds and how to save/make some extra money on the side. I felt like I could relate to them much more than the Addams.
Would I recommend watching it?
Will I watch the 2 season?
