The Munsters Today / Hammer House Of Horror

All good things must come to an end, as The Peggy Mount Calamity Hour’s terrifying triptych of pernicious programming reaches its unholy zenith. The podcast shines a light upon that which should never have been unearthed, as The Munsters Today presents a far more horrifying spectacle than any of the writers or producers could have foreseen. Then back to more comforting times in Hammer House Of Horror’s ‘Children Of The Full Moon, when a broken down car and the assistance of the kindly owner of a remote mansion can only lead to hirsute hysterics.

How did NBC Universal manage to produce over seventy episodes of a show based on The Munsters whilst ensuring that not a single cast or crew-member had ever seen an episode of The Munsters? Did the Hammer production budget not stretch so seatbelts? And was the UK’s wine-situation so bad in 1980 that nobody knew how to even pronounce pinot noir? Let’s crack open a baleful brew and find out…

...but that is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with stranger aeons, we’ll be back before Christmas, bye!
