Mockingbird Lane (Pilot/Halloween Special)

This wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. But the Pilot/Halloween Special was half baked and under-cooked. It really didn't have anything compelling to hook a viewer and it definitely was NOT what I would call a Halloween Special of any sort. To me it came off as a rush job just to make a deadline with no thought to a story with a beginning, middle and end. If this is the only episode, it's not something I'd miss. Having said that, there is a lot of potential here if they can do a 'monster of the week' arc or something that has a well-thought out narrative. The first thing you have to do when watching this is immediately put the original TV series out of your mind and just go with this version of the characters. You can't top the original, so it's pointless to try and do it the same way. With the modernization of The Munster's it can work in the long run and where I can see the potential for some new on TV.

Watching the Pilot, I was very impressed with the Special FX. Really impressed. This is some of the best FX on broadcast TV right now and I was also surprised at how graphic the show was for a prime-time audience. Not that I care. Just pointing out that I'm use to shows on NBC being watered down.
