Thanks, Dream Weaver!  They actually tried to do a more serious version of "The Munsters" a few years ago: "1313 Mockingbird Lane."  But it was apparently cheesy, so it flopped.  But a cool one could do well!

Yes but it's the Gilligan's Island characters, so that instantly makes it more fun, lol!
But seriously, I've never seen Lost and barely knew what it was when I made this poll, so in my mind it was completely original.
