    MTV’s The State was given a Halloween Special on CBS once, and then promptly shown the door.

    Yes Eddie Izzard is in it, but so is Jerry O’Connell. Sliders was the last time he was worth watching, and that’s only because I didn’t realize he only had the one character that he could play.

    If somebody’s looking for me, i’ll be down in the lab watching that.

    You know what’s streets ahead of Another Remake, right?

    I wish they’d gone with the classic Universal monsters look for the Herman, Grandpa and Lily. I hope they didn’t give them too much of a financial make over, since seeing the Munsters try to make sense of a blue collar world was part of its charm. I could see Herman at a protest over the closure of a hospital going “These people deserve good jobs, and I need the spare parts!”

    See, The Munsters was never anything but a cheap ripoff of The Addams Family, without any of Charles Addams’ wit and charm.  The best thing they ever gave us was Paul Ryan.

    But they can’t do a remake of the Addams Family, because they already made that.  Running so low on 60s shit to cash in on.  Studio executives may be forced to start making Reality TV: The Movie.  Or, if all else fails, start producing original material.

    {‘Munsters Remake’} oh FFS what is with these people? {‘Eddie Izzard is in it’} –oh? I’ll definitely go out of my way if he’s

  9. I recommended casting Fred Gwynn as the new Herman Munster, but they ignored me. I have no sympathy.
