Frankenstein Family Episodes 11 + 12

There are very few words for how disappointing these final two episodes are. Mostly because this demonstrates an incredible lack of either planning to end the story at a reasonable rest point OR lack of care for an audience that will be left without anything resembling closure and no announcement of follow up. While not … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 11 + 12

Frankenstein Family Episodes 9 + 10

Episodes 9 and 10 bring some heavy drama in the form of Snow getting sick and the family rallying to help him. Somewhere along the line that turned into Snow turning into a half-dog monster and running into Sumire (the girl Tanisu has been crushing on). After saving Sumire from getting dirty clothes and lending … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 9 + 10

Frankenstein Family Episodes 7 + 8

With the cliff-hanger ending of episode 6 to be resolved and the issue of whether or not the kids can trust the landlord, episodes 7 and 8 manage to be pretty interesting even while not a lot actually happens in Frankenstein Family. I'm not a big fan of flash backs during dramatic moments given I … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 7 + 8

Frankenstein Family Episode 6

The landlord is still trying to bond and so invites the kids out to the mountains for a hike. They all go along and we realise … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episode 6

Frankenstein Family Episode 5

This week the kids finish infiltrating the lab and retrieving what they need, meanwhile the landlord returns and tries to make friends with a mind-reader. This episode is fairly uneventful in that we continue the infiltration before returning home but not a lot happens other than what you would expect from their mission. The kids … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episode 5

Frankenstein Family Episode 4

Minor correction from my review of episodes 1 and 2; it turns out Snow is actually an older brother rather than a sister. That doesn't change a lot about the show, but I felt I should correct it. Episode 4 has the family returning to the lab as Tanisu has decided he needs the research … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episode 4

Frankenstein Family Episode 3

Episode 3 of Frankenstein Family is quite logical in that we see Tanisu looking for help for his family and going back through his very limited contacts out in the world. It doesn't exactly end happily, but the experience of watching him and his sister figure out their way around the city and meeting with … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episode 3

Frankenstein Family Episodes 1 + 2

It is amazing what timing can do for a show. If Frankenstein Family had aired back at the start of the season I'd have probably passed after episode 1, particularly as only 15 minutes of the run time is actually episode and the rest is voice actresses doing whatever they are doing (it isn't overly … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 1 + 2
