Default The Munsters - The Complete Series DVD Review

You could be scared to death by monsters, but you’ll laugh to death when you watch The Munsters. And now, America’s favorite scary family (that is, for those that don’t prefer the Addams) is available in a set containing all 70 episodes of the series and a wealth of bonus features, including two feature-length films with the family!

The series premiered in 1964 on CBS, a year where the supernatural began to dominate airwaves. In the same season, Bewitched and The Addams Family made their premiere on ABC. The series My Favorite Martian had already premiered a year earlier, and more was to come later on. The Munsters took a family of “frightening beings” and put them in suburban America among others, where they did everything they could to blend in (and somehow believed they already did). Fred Gwynne and Yvonne DeCarlo star as husband and wife Herman and Lily Munster, and have one son, Eddie (played by Butch Patrick). Al Lewis plays Grandpa, and Beverley Owen (later replaced by Pat Priest) plays the normal (or as the family sees her, “ugly”) niece, Marilyn.

I just picked up The Munsters complete series this mourning. At first I was not planing on getting this as I already had the previous sets. But I decided to get it anyways. Universal did a mutch better job with this set. Loved now that the episodes are now on 1 sidded DVD's. Great job Universal. Cant wait to get The Knight Ridder set that will be coming out at the end of the month.
Got so many DVD's and Blu-Rays to watch now.Been a busy October for watching movies and TV shows.

I was tempted to buy this but I already have the individual season sets. I don't care for the 2 sided discs but they all play fine. The bonus movies included in this new set are not enough to entice me, not enough to justify buying the series twice.

Yeah 'm sure alot of people are disapointed that Universal did not do it this way the first time they released the show. I know my best friend who bought the show with me over 3 years ago plans on sticking with the previous set. I did feel kind of stupid on my way home yesterday. I kept saying to myself "I already have this show.Why did I buy it again?" But after I got home and played with the special features and watched the docomentry I'm now glad that I bought the new set. And also I never did buy the movies on DVD so now I do. Yeah now I have 2 copies of The complete Munsters sitting on myself. Yeah I plan on keeping the previous set. Got the previous set and the new set sitting together on my DVD shelf
