Good family fun,
This review is from: The Munsters: Series 1 (Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
First shown on American TV in the 60’s, the Munsters is about a family who the outside world views as ‘odd’ to say the least while they themselves see ‘normal’ people as strange. Herman Munster is a Frankenstein look-alike, wife Lily and her father, Grandpa, are vampires while son Eddie is a werewolf. Also living in their mausoleum type house is Lily’s beautiful niece Marilyn whom the Munster’s pity as they see her looks as ‘unfortunate’.
This DVD set features all 36 episodes from season 1 and is presented on 6 discs. It is a typical comedy of that era, simple family values and good clean fun with the underlying message that it is ok to be ‘different’. The set features no extras, not even subtitles for the hard of hearing hence the four stars rating rather than five. It doesn’t look as if there has been much cleaning up of the picture either, although overall the quality is not bad. It’s a shame more effort wasn’t put into the DVD release but that aside, it is a worthwhile addition to the collection of any Munsters fan.
