Bryan Fuller's reboot of the campy TV series The Munsters (retitled in the reboot to Mockingbird Lane) could have been much more serious. Like Eddie Munster kills a bunch of people serious.

This rejected concept art from artist John Gallagher shows a whole new direction for Mockingbird Lane. Herman looks like an actual monster made from dead human parts, grandpa is much creepier and Eddie is a full-blown monster. Obviously Fuller went another direction, but you can still see glimmers from this work in the eventual pilot. Specifically in the house exterior.

When you feel even the Munsters needs a "gritty, realistic" take, you're officially effed, Hollywood.

Not everything is bettered by desaturated visuals and more violence. In fact, very little is. Would you frickin' do something charming and innocent again? Stop attempting to turn everything into the frickin' Dark Knight.
