TMTYR Episode #33: Bilateral Kidney Stones (Frankenstein)

All things being equal, this episode would’ve been released for Halloween 2015. But 20th Century Fox decided to push Victor Frankenstein to Thanksgiving Weekend, so it’s Franksgiving, or Thankenstein from the Pavement Pounders!frankenstein_green

Under consideration this time are the classic 1818 novel Frankenstein, its equally classic 1931 adaptation, 1935’s Bride of Frankenstein, Mel Brooks’s Young Frankenstein, a couple of other adaptations, and the new film Victor Frankenstein.
