I am a big fan of the original series, and everyone knows that you can't replace the original. Al Lewis, Yvonne DeCarlo, and especially Fred Gwynne made the original series. Obviously, this show doesn't work as a remake.
But I thought I would give it a try as an independent show, so I watched a few episodes on Hulu. Not only is this a terrible remake, it's just a terrible show. I can't recall anything that I actually thought was funny on it. Most of the time I was cringing because the jokes were so stupid. And that live studio audience--I know they tell them when to laugh and when to cheer, but if I were in that audience, I would simply refuse to laugh and cheer because it's so stupid. The characters are just so unrealistic, even for a show about monsters.
Another good thing about the original is that it was made in the 1960s, when everything was clean. This remake is full of innuendos, even innuendos surrounding Eddie, who is just a young kid. Everything good about the original series is lost, but everything bad about the original is kept--and a lot more bad is added.
