This was such an interesting collection of the stories about the tale of Frakenstein from The History Channel. The first feature is how Mary Shelley came up with her story as well as looking at famous scientists of the era.

A collection of three documentaries from A&E and History on the Frankenstein story. One dates back to the 90s, the other two are more recent, and generally the end product is better than the dreck that has come from these channels in the last few years. The first two documentaries look at the story by Shelley and the influences of real people of her time. The last one explores the creature's presence primarily on the silver screen. The result is interesting enough for those with an appreciation for the book, the many movies, and the supernatural in general.
