What Happened?
11 January 2001 | by (Madison,Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I have seen worst shows with even more preposterous premises last for ten years, but this show could have lasted a lot longer ! I don't remember much but the series was funny and outrageous. Jack Elam has always done great comedy work and the rest of the cast was unknown enough to give him room to work. As the still living creation of Dr. Frankenstien there were great lines and some funny scenes as Elam goes after a actor in a Dracula costume ready to kill him again. The funniest was Elam's look at an actor in the monster get-up. "You have one bad hair day and everyone thinks you have a flat top!"
