Okay, it couldn't hold a candle to the original. All the actors in the original THE MUNSTERS are the definitive versions for me. It's a bit hard to equal or top the likes of Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo and Al Lewis.
But it was okay, I felt. I've certainly seen far worse continuations of vintage comedies, both UK and US. Three seasons and a little over 70 episodes isn't a bad run for a continuation of a much-loved 60s show.
The likes of John Schuck (as Herman) and Lee Meriwether (as Lily) did a commendable job, I feel.
And the colour was quite a novelty!
I doubt I'd buy this show on Blu-ray, but I'd certainly watch it on 'free' TV.
EDIT: Replaced the word "remake" with "continuation".
