The pilot episode of Bryan Fuller‘s Mockingbird Lane aired on NBC last week, and while the general consensus seems to be that the “Munsters” reboot didn’t get enough viewers for NBC to pick the series up, the pilot itself was actually pretty good. Here’s the opening three minutes, courtesy of Werewolf News reader “C”. Eddie doesn’t know he’s a werewolf, but the rest of his Scout group figure it out pretty quickly, and in manner I found surprisingly dark and graphic for network television.
Yes, Eddie Munster, the werewolf, is here as well, and he’s at the center of the pilot, which dearly wants to be about this family reclaiming its heritage and being proud of what it is, after spending so many years trying to hide it away. Eddie, see, doesn’t know he’s a werewolf, and also doesn’t know he’s the reason his family has had to relocate to Mockingbird Heights.
This clip is all I’ve seen of the show, and now I’m kind of regretting that I missed it. If you saw the whole pilot, what did you think? Should NBC re-consider?
