First Family of Goth,
This review is from: The Addams Family - Volume 3 (DVD)
I loved this show the first time I saw it on reruns on my summer vacation from 8th Grade (...back in '87). It's just a great show with some twisted humor and was excellently executed for a show done back in the early 60's. I tend to enjoy it more than the Munsters for it's a few steps back from being seen too cartoony (though it was based on art/comic strips) for the reasons that it was a definate more original concept versus a take on old horror movie characters. Hell, you see women like Morticia out in the world at Marilyn Manson and OZZFEST concerts!!
It's a show that was at the base of GOTH: Seeing the beauty of the darker things life brings you in a humorous perception. I hate flowers, and loved how Morticia would cut roses and display a vase with nothing but thorny stems!!!
If you like Goth and classic tv, put up the Addams Family DVDS...They are a very inexpensive collection and DVDS you are sure to watch many times..
