Frankenstein Family First Impressions (1): Kind of late in the game, huh?


I wasn't sure what to expect from this series, but it seemed okay from the first episode. I'm curious to see whether the show will have some kind of gimmick for itself, as it just seems like another slice of life show so far. As far as I can see, it's just going to be daily life with scientifically altered siblings. There were a couple of moments in the episode that made me wonder if it would go past that, but that remains to be seen.

For the most part, the episode looked better than I was expecting. If I had to complain about anything, I'd say that some of the scenes transition a bit too quickly, but it's not a big deal.

I'm definitely curious to see if the lab experiment part of the premise is explored any more. As it stands, the episode seems to take a pretty carefree stance on something that should be pretty messed up.

The Chinese culture aspects of the episode certainly appealed to me. I remember the first time I visited my family in China and learned about this whole thing with washing the tea cup. I was equally confused when I saw it myself, so it's easy to relate to.

It's pretty easy to relate to Tanisu, but this is line is still a legitimate point. I can understand Tanisu's desire to have a loving family that supports each other, but the other siblings have a right to be annoyed at the fact that he's trying to force them into normalcy.

Blasphemer!

I'm a little disappointed about the lab explosion reveal. Earlier in the episode, there's a news article about a "mysterious explosion" in the past few days, which could have foreshadowed some darker moments for the series. Instead, this final scene suggests that it's referring to whatever incident allowed the family to be freed from experimentation, which is a bit of a letdown. Oh well...
