As you can see, this first cast photo will probably let down fans of the original TV series. Gone is the Frankenstein's monster look of Herman and the vampire V hair style of Eddie. That doesn't mean that this will be bad. On the contrary. The shows creator, Bryan Fuller, has already said that he is taking a different approach to this version. (And our person who has read the pilot says that it was one of the best TV scripts he's read in quite a while.)
According to Joblo.com, Fuller said:
"The Munsters actually do what monsters do. They eat people and they have to live with the ramifications of being monstrous. It's like grounding it in a reality because the half-hour was a sitcom, we saw the monsters: they were monsters on the outside and weren't monsters on the inside. For us, they're monsters outside and inside, and we get to double our story."
"Everything is a metaphor for something that you can identify with in a relationship. The fact that Herman is in a constant state of decay and he's married to someone who doesn't age. We get to play with all those insecurities. The fact that he was made by his father-in-law and then has to live up to those standards; he's always trying to find his own identity."
Bryan did go on to address comparisons to ABC's Once Upon A Time, but he assures fans that he is more interested in monsters than fairy tales.
