I don't know about you but I myself am very excited to see yet another dark, violent, tongue-in-cheek reboot of an 85-year-old American media franchise!

The Addams Family is a nearly century-old media series that spans comics, books, live-action movies, animated television shows, video games, what-have-you. It's absolutely been used, reused and recycled to its absolute limits. There are really no more Addams Family stories to tell.

So of course Netflix is doing this:

Looks like total trash โ€” thematically dark, aesthetically vibrant, sardonic, faux-intellectual, almost certainly very woke, just every garbage television convention rolled up into one.

You know what's a great Addams Family feature? "Addams Family Values" from 1993. It has a fantastic cast, great jokes, a believable plot, it doesn't take itself too seriously. The grotto tango scene along is among the most entertaining dance sequences in recent film history:

You can't put a price on watching Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston do a flamenco so good that it literally sets the floor on fire. That's golden stuff.

But I'm sure we'll all have fun watching Wednesday Addams dump a bunch of piranha in a swimming pool or whatever. Can't wait.
