Brilliant series
17 December 2001 | by p800207See all my reviews

During Christmas 1990 this series was aired in Holland. I was ten at the time and I had just bought myself a video game system with a Castlevania game. I really loved that game! To those who know what characters play in Castlevania it should come as no surprise that I love this series as well!

The story is set in Transylvania, where a scientist has created a human being consisting of human parts. People of a nearby town raid the castle and baron scientist is forced to flee, leaving his castle and it's residents behind. Since his creation is as dumb as can be, the castle residents try to educate Albert, as he's known to friends. Their primary goal is to make Albert as human and as loving as possible. Although the series was recorded in Chechoslowakia it is entirely in English (at least, the version I saw). The actors playing the parts have done an excellent job! Viveca Lindfors is cast as the Baron's aunt. The Baron's name is actually Henry Frankenstein, so Viveca Lindfors is "Frankenstein's Aunt". As soon as she arrives at the castle she runs the place. She tries to make every castle resident as ordinary as possible. As for those residents, what could you expect in an Transylvanian castle? Ferdy Mayne plays Count Dracula (resemble his Count Krolock in "The Fearless Vampire Killers" (1967)!) in an brilliant and stylish way and Eddie Constatine plays Alois, the Lake creature. Other minor castle residents include the Phantom Lady, the Fire creature, Igor the manservant and of course a werewolf. Frightened of what has happened in the castle (and probably more of ignorance) some of the townspeople try to find out what DID happen. Most of the townspeople are actually totally unaware of the castle's secrets. Except the local blacksmid and pharmacy lady, they are extremely hostile to the castle's residents, and not without reason. The blacksmid wants, after he found out about the truth about Albert, to abduct Albert and claim this creation his. He would be acclaimed world wide for it! The pharmacy lady sees her daughter falling in love with Albert, whom she calls 'this monster!' She tries to keep her daughter away from Albert and his friends and rather see her daughter getting married with the burgomasters son.

I could give an entire excerpt of this series, but it is best that you watch it yourself. The filming locations are gorgeous. The acting is of a very high level. The special are pretty good. The music will be in your head the rest of your life. And most of all... this series has emotion! That's something you don't see very often. On the one hand this series is very funny and entertaining, but on the other hand you sometimes can't hold up your tears!

So if you ever, ever get a chance to see this series, don't hesitate, watch it! It's the best series there practically is!
