    Williamsburg -- will there be hilarious comic moments with Herman and Grandpa meeting the chassidic Jews who are long-time residents of Williamsburg? Maybe they'll enroll Eddie in a yeshiva?

    I wonder if Herman will be updated to wearing a man-bun and a beard.

    Williamsburg, Brooklyn? it seems as though there was a show or TWO, about people being BROKE, and I believe it may have featured GIRLS.

    Oh well, I guess it will remain a mystery.

    And this reboot will suck.

    There will never be another Fred Gwynne.

    I don't think I would like this... I am going to assume the "____ in the big city" premise was shoehorned in as a way to make a 2017 Munsters reboot appear culturally relevant with the iCarly generation. Already, I anticipate more time being spent on incredibly watered down, dated, Nathan Barley-esque observational humor related to "hipster" cliches and smarthpone culture than on The Munsters themselves.

    Prove me wrong, NBC.

    Oh, goody! Another attempt at making classic, pop-culture icons "edgy" and "modern"...

    Likely to be as successful a mashup as in past attempts:

    Wonder if Pauley Perette and Kevin James will play Lily and Herman?

    Kevin James in heavy makeup as Grandpa. But Herman just has to go to Brad Garrett.

    You've got to admit, it might be kind of amusing to watch the antics of those hideous, inhuman freaks, and the reactions they get from the Munsters.

    Thank you, and don't forget to tip your waitress.

    Shawn: Brad Garrett as Herman Munster: That is an excellent choice!!

    How about Leah Remini as Lilly?

    And Adam Sandler has GOT to play Eddie!!

    Haaaaaaarible idea for a show. Doomed to failure. Awful idea.

    They tried to ruin the Munsters a few years ago with another lame idea, so now I guess its time to give it another go.
