Mockingbird Lane "Halloween Special" Review: Corny on the Macabre

Bryan Fuller's Munsters do-over is flashy, campy, and fun, and if it could just get it's sh*t together, it'd make a decent series.

Yvonne De Carlo dies at age 84

Yvonne De Carlo, who played Lily Munster on the TV series The Munsters, died Monday of natural causes in Woodland Hills. She was 84.

De Carlo was born in Vancouver, B.C., and was raised by her mother. As a child, she took dancing lessons, and as an adult, she began to get roles in Hollywood B-movies in the 1940s and 1950s. She also appeared in the Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical Follies.

She became known primarily for her role as the matriarch of the Munster clan in the TV series The Munsters. The Munsters were a typical suburban family, except for the fact they were monsters--Lily was a vampire who wore a drapey black gown and was married to the Frankenstein-like Herman (Fred Gwynne).

While The Munsters had a short run--two years, from 1964 to 1966--it became a staple in syndication. Two ...

Al Lewis, grandpa on TV's The Munsters, dies

Al Lewis, best known for his role as Grandpa in television's The Munsters, has died after a long illness, a local radio station said Saturday.

A movie Web site listed his age as 95, but there have been reports that he was 83.

Lewis, who died Friday, was born in Brooklyn and was raised by his mother, an immigrant sweatshop worker in the Brownsville district of that borough.

"Brownsville was the largest Jewish ghetto in America," he once said. "We all were very poor. But we stood together when people were evicted. When the marshals and sheriffs would leave, we'd break the lock and move the furniture back inside. Back then, we didn't let people live in the street."

Lewis worked as salesman and waiter and once owned a successful restaurant in Greenwich Village. He also was a poolroom owner, store detective, and political candidate.

He worked ...

Alias

The Complete Fourth Season

Before J.J. Abrams took you into the unknown with Lost, he blasted you into spyland with Alias. Special agent Sydney Bristow, played by Jennifer Garner, is working for the CIA, trying to stop villainous scum from ruining the world. This season, we meet Sydney's sister, Mia, who is also Sloane's daughter. If that isn't enough to make your head spin, Vaughn goes AWOL after he steals an item from the CIA. Is Vaughn turning bad, or does he just want to find his father? Is Sloane really Sloane, or is this fake Sloane the real Sloane? It's hard to trust either one of them!

This six-disc DVD set contains all 22 episodes from season four of the series. Also included are the DVD extras "A Chat With Jennifer Garner"; "Meet Mia ...
