Fun, imaginative (if crude) movie monster/history sitcom.
This show's premise is utterly unique: Victor Frankenstein, who has attained immortality, has become bored in his gothic-horror-world, so he reaches out to celebrities and historical figures across time, offering to use his science skills to solve their problems.
There's a lot to love here: from the nuanced, slightly creepy paper doll presentation, to the historical and movie monster references. The voice acting is pretty good, the character interpretations are wacky and fun, and most of the plots are pretty well-paced. Britta Phillips adds some pretty memorable tracks as well.
There's also some things not to love so much: the show often relies on toilet humor, and while Victor is witty, he's also a thoroughly unlikable narcissist. Some characters get an inordinate amount of attention, despite being extremely flat and forgettable (Dracula, Hitler and Joe come to mind here).
It was a show that wasn't really destined to be a mainstream hit, but it definitely is worth a look.
