The show Extra Credits has taken on a few extra series. One of them is Extra Sci-Fi, an examination of the history of science fiction. In the filler I’m posting tonight (to get my creating schedule back on track) they’ve backtracked a bit to focus on the parents of sci-fi themselves. Their first set of stories was on Frankenstein, where they talked a bit about Mary Shelley’s motivations and a few other since but not the famous creators as much as famous works. They decided to fix that starting with this video.
You can catch more Extra Sci-Fi and their other shows, including the usual Extra Credits and historical examination Extra History over on their YouTube channel.
