The set pieces are so good. If thats your thing you are going to love this.

The set pieces are so good. If thats your thing you are going to love this. The story runs fast and loose and for so many great actors i feel like they are just reading lines and going through the motions. Frankenstein's monster is the best in the show, soulful acting where for the first time i truly felt sorry for the monster and thats why i kept coming back. I love Eva Green but this show took a good actress and an attractive young lady and made her look like Skeltor with an awful story line and removed any amount of sexuality from her awkward and off putting " romantic " scenes.

Not an average tv series. If you are going to watch it take the time for it. Get to know the intriguing characters. Submerge yourself in the plot. It's totally worth it.

So crazy and intense and creepy and interesting. Hard to binge because there's so much going on.

with it's use of classic literature and a talent rich cast this series almost captures the ambience of Victorian England, dark, sexual repression(although not shy about having it)and something doesn't smell right! I shall wait and see if season 2 is as well done
