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.

Give it a listen!
