Bryan Fuller, known for his offbeat if short-lived cult class "Pushing Daises" returns to television with an expanded universe for America's monster family. While based around the characters from the 1960s, Fuller plans to drag "Mockingbird Lane" into the 21st century, kicking and screaming if necessary.
Fuller plans to inject his brand of dark humor into the show, which begs the question "Will it be as self-aware and campy as 'Daises' and if so, is this the dawning of new era where vampires are only part of the supernatural landscape instead of the frontrunners?" Exhibit B: Dark Shadows
On the one hand, "Another remake, really?"
On the other hand, "At least they're trying to bring it up to date with fresh stories and a quirky outlook by casting Eddie Izzard and the creator of "Pushing Daisies".
On the third hand (just go with it), "Why would they ruin a childhood classic by changing a single hair on its black-and-white head?!"
Loop these ad nauseum.
