Can Frankenstein Resurrect Fox?

Many moons ago, I had heard that Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein material was going to be made into a film.  But then book 3 took forever to come out, it was clear that it wasn’t going to be as good with Koontz alone writing it, it became several more books that I wasn’t interested in, etc.

And now this.  Huh.

This premise is less Frankenstein and more Now and Again, a show which introduced me to Eric Close and Dennis Haysbert. Also from many moons ago. But back then, it was created by the same nutcase who brought you Moonlighting, and Medium.

This?  The only name connected to it is Howard Gordon, who hasn’t done much since 24 that I like (seriously, who watches Homeland?). Though I note that Gordon has found another way of keeping a hero on a clock (the 1:53 mark).

The one actor in the trailer I know is Tim McKay of White Collar, and I can’t see him as a regular. Other than that, the actors all seem to be pretty little nothings who are so generic they could have been the starting cast for Agents of SHIELD. The lead actor’s credits are so thin I could use them for tissue paper.

I’ll give it a shot.  Depending on how the pilot goes, it may be two shots — one to each kneecap.

    It could turn into the next X-Files-type cult show, too, if given the chance.
