Did You Know?


The successful resurrection of "The Creature" doesn't happen (solely) through electricity in this series. During a stay at Lake Geneva in Switzerland from May to September 1816 (during which she laid the foundations for what would become Frankenstein, or: The Modern Prometheus, published in 1818), Mary Shelley described ideas of galvanism and the re-animation of corpses. Unlike virtually all later film adaptations, however, the original novel never precisely describes the use of electricity to successfully re-animate a body. In fact, in Frankenstein (1910), the very first silent film adaptation of the novel, the creature emerges from a bubbling cauldron in what appears to be alchemy rather than actual modern science. In this series, the exact circumstances of the first truly successful resurrection are also kept vague, except the use of a "tincture" and "tissue" is mentioned. See more »

This needs to air in North America ASAP!

Sean Bean, superb as usual, leads a fantastic supporting cast through this dark and gritty investigation of mutilated corpses and the possibility of galvanizing the dead back to life.

I cannot say enough about this 6 episode (what was originally supposed to be mini-series - but now renewed for a second run!) season. Everything from the costumes, the sets, and the music (oh, the great music!) is phenomenal! The opening credits and theme deserve some recognition as it was very well done (I had a Game of Thrones vibe watching it)!

This could have easily ended at episode 6, because it was a perfect way to end this story, but I am also excited to see where they take Sean Bean's character next!
