Lookinglass Frankenstein Code

Fox's Frankenstein Code Changes Title to Lookinglass — What Does It Mean?

Allow The Frankenstein Code to reintroduce itself… as Lookinglass.

Fox announced Thursday that its midseason supernatural drama — about a corrupt LA County sheriff brought back to life in the body of True Blood‘s Robert Kazinsky — has officially undergone a title change.

The show’s new title refers to the Lookinglass Project aka the next-gen science lab founded by Otto Goodwin (played by Rules of Engagement‘s Adhir Kalyan) and his bioengineer twin sister, Mary (Greek‘s Dilshad Vadsaria).

Fun fact: this is technically the second name change for this particular series. Before going by The Frankenstein Code, it was briefly known as simply Frankenstein.

    Change approved! While I love all things old school horror & goth, Frankenstein as a title didn’t seem to express enough of what the show seems to be about. Plus it made me think of the recent Dracula series which was terrible & flopped.

  2. Lookinglass will likely be less alienating to viewers. Still not sure if I’m going to watch.

    Perhaps a lighter tone is in play. Sounds good to me.

    Change the title all you want, it will still get cancelled. Mark my words.

    This was most likely brought on by the marketing department.

    Only good things can come from this particular title change. Nice choice!

  7. Gdybyśmy zakopali poziomą rurę na głębokości 100 metrów,
    moglibyśmy powiedzieć, że mamy ogrzewanie geotermalne.

    I approve. Using the word Frankenstein always brings a certain stigma along with it. Maybe the new title will help the show bring in viewers who were initially against it just because of name alone.

  9. I Don’t Care for the Name Change ~ The Frankenstein Code, Intrigued Me ~
    Lookinglass Means Mirror ~ Johnny Depp Is in Movie for 2016 Called `Alice Through the Looking Glass ~ To Me It’s Changing Thoughts From One Idea to Another ~ Somewhat Confusing ~ Id Still Watch It Though, I Love, Robert Kazinsky ~

    Do they maybe mean Looking Glass? The title sounds/looks stupid written the way it is.

    • Ava says:

      Wait, sorry, I just noticed it’s the protagonist’s name. So maybe people who know that beforehand might not cross the show out just for having a stupid title.

    • Amy says:

      I agree it looks wrong without the other “G”. Even it it is the characters name, I will refer to this as “Looking Lass”, just cause I can’t unsee the misspelling.

    This is a show I have been tracking since the first pilot descriptions came out at the beginning of the year. When I finally saw the promo video in May, I was underwhelmed and didn’t really see the connection to ‘Frankenstein’. While the title change will give the show a fresh viewer perspective, I don’t think it will save what simply wasn’t that engaging of a pilot. (Lucifer on the other hand was AWESOME fun!!)

  12. Emor says:

    P.S. Every time I read that title, all I can think of is Lost. (aka.. ‘Not Penny’s Boat’)

    I preferred the old name.
