Started watching the 1st ssn of this last night on Netflix. Watched 3 of 6 episodes. Sean Bean stars. Very good period piece, reimagining of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein". Sean Bean was a producer. Nice references to his "Sharp" series….LOL! Highly recommended (I know, Hal, thatnks for that phrase…!).

I saw the previews for this series while I was watching Babylon Berlin. That is a series about 1927 Berlin with Communists And nationalists and police and crooks and such.

Are there actual battles in the Frankenstein Series? Something to game?

Seems like having Sean Bean produce a project may be the only way his character will make it to the end of the show (hopefully).

Bob, I wouldn't expect battles in a Frankenstein story, plenty of pulp rpg potential maybe. That Babylon Berlin series sounds good though.

That sounds like an interesting series.

Very atmospheric. Even indoors everyone can see their breath and all in all I'm glad I did not live there then.

Nick, it's like Peaky Blinders in Berlin. i'll do Frankenstein next.

Was fortunate enough to see this previously. I really liked it and thought it raised some interesting philosophical/religious issues while being a cracking bit of Gothic detective fun.

Sadly I do not think Bean said "bastard" once.

Other than that worth watching.

I have watched one episode and thought it was pretty good.
