Hallmark Channel to air proto-cyborg Frankenstein story

Hallmark Channel Presents Monster Makers
"A Classic Tale of Undying Love"??? What new horror is this?...A supposedly authentic adaptation of Frankenstein airs on Hallmark Channel this month.

Donald Sutherland and William Hurt star in an "epic" television adaptation of Shelley's Frankenstein. Part One is to be aired on Tuesday, October 5 (9/8c), and Part Two on Wednesday, October 6 (9/8c). Encores on October 26 and 27. This production was apparently shot entirely on location in Slovakia (Slovakia???).
"Yet this new creature (Luke Goss, Blade II) proves even more fallibly human than Frankenstein. He is not only imbued with knowledge and wisdom, but a conscience as well and a longing to be accepted for something other than the deviant he is....

Mary Shelley's immortal novel truly comes to life for the first time in the most elaborate, gragic, and chillingly faithful version of her classic macabre tale....Frankenstein will rouse audiences with something far more profound than fear."

The burning question: where where where can I ever get a chance to see this?
