Original Content podcast: We’re not on the same page about ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein’

Just to get this out of the way: “Frankenstein’;s Monster’;s Monster, Frankenstein” is a wonderful title. In reality, it’s in all probability the finest point about the new comedy specific on Netflix .

That’s not a complaint about the specific itself, which stars David Harbour (a.k.a. Chief Hopper on “Stranger Things”), as each David Harbour Jr — an actor taking on the part of Frankenstein in a play also named “Frankenstein’;s Monster’;s Monster, Frankenstein” — and David Harbour III, an actor who investigates his father’s life decades later.

If this sounds needlessly complex don’t be concerned. As we clarify on the newest episode of the Original Content material podcast, the plot largely serves as a springboard lots for jokes about actorly jealousy, Chekhov’s gun and the reality that no 1 can don’t forget that Frankenstein and his monster are two diverse individuals. Anthony and Darrell, at least, identified the entire point to be fairly darn delightful.

Jordan, on the other hand, was baffled and unimpressed, and no matter how considerably time her co-hosts spent more than-explaining the many gags, we couldn’t win her more than.
