Post Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein
Who knew David Harbour had such a distinguished acting range?

Can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. If you're into that weird postmodern shit on adultswim (like Too Many Cooks) and surrealist stuff like Python and the Goodies, this should be right up your pleasure tract. But it's not arbitrary with its surrealism or fatuous like those shows tend towards; imagine the spoofiness of the Naked Gun series commingled with a more meaningful satirical depth, crammed into a 30-minute interweave of craft-ribbing metacomedy. Struggling to think of anything to properly compare it with. Maybe Documentary Now! has a few similar things going on concept-wise, but Frankenstein has more creative purpose going for it. It's no small feat, taking the piss out of the Julliard school elitism bubble, and stage acting in general, as well as this does.

Would have it a guess John Levenstein's probably a Dr. James Incandenza fan.

A+
