Canceled Too Soon #166 | Mockingbird Lane (2012)


Everyone's second-favorite 1960s sitcom about a family of monsters living in suburbia got an all-star reboot with 2012's MOCKINGBIRD LANE! This reimagining of THE MUNSTERS stems from HANNIBAL producer Bryan Fuller, and stars Jerry O'Connell, Portia De Rossi, Charity Wakefield and Eddie Izzard as creepy creatures trying to live inconspicuously in polite society, while also occasionally killing some people. 

It's creepy, it's kooky, but it's ain't THE ADDAMS FAMILY. It's the Munsters all over again, and it may very well have been CANCELED TOO SOON!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold exhume this notorious failed pilot to determine if MOCKINGBIRD LANE deserved to buried alive in foul earth of pop culture history, or whether it's worthy of resurrection.

Canceled Too Soon #165: Mistress of Suspense, a.k.a. Chillers (1990)


Anthony Perkins hosts a series of sinister stories in MISTRESS OF SUSPENSE, an anthology based entirely on the works of Patricia Highsmith, the author of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and THE TALENTED MR.

Did MISTRESS OF SUSPENSE deserve to fade into obscurity, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore its extremely British tales of murder and madness in an all-new episode of the podcast, which kicks off GHASTLYTOBER... our Halloween celebration of short-lived horror shows!
