So I finally caved and decided that if I’m going to feel right about being in the Frankenstein MD fandom, I need to read the whole book(my uncle read me the chapter when the monster is created when I was like 7).
I’ve read up to that chapter to start, and I figured that now would be a good time for me to fan girl at how much FMD actually does pay attention to detail. The very first thing that struck me was the fact that Rob the Cameraman(whose name is Robert Walton, if you go on the FMD blog) shares the name of Captain Robert Walton, who Victor uses to write down his story. As Rob records and edits the show, he basically does the same thing, and that’s cool.
A little further in, you get to where Victor goes off to university, and that’s obviously where the show is right now. In episode 2, Victoria complained about Dr. Krempe, who she believes looks down on her because she’s a woman that’s pursuing a career in science. In the book, the first professor Victor meets is Krempe, who makes fun of the authors Victor had so far studied. From a modern standpoint, it was quite clever for the show to instead make it so he mocks Victoria based on her gender.
Waldman deviates slightly, as he’s quite warm and encouraging toward Victor. I mean, he is with Victoria in the show, but he does shut her down every time she speaks of doing something radical. Though, Victor doesn’t actually talk about his true scientific ambitions with Waldman, so that could explain the difference.
And finally, we get to Eli Lavenza and Rory Clerval, who, as many have already pointed out, are very different from their book counterparts. To start, Frankenstein and Clerval were super best friends, while Victoria and Rory don’t really seem as close. Also, as far as we know, Clerval and Eli(zabeth) never had a thing, but as Victor is away for about three years without seeing them, who knows? Maybe they did.
Eli isn’t particularly well-developed yet, but I can already expect that he won’t be Victoria’s first cousin, who her parents adopted with the idea that they would someday get married. Or at least I hope not.
But anyway, Frankenstein MD is actually quite faithful to the book when it comes to little details, and that makes my nerd heart sing.

This is about how subtle a certain Countess Karnstein is being. Inspired by a conversation between addams-beineke and I.
Why is she so tired-looking? My guess is that she was up all night with a “study buddy.” Or maybe it’s just before 4 PM. Or both.
