Dark Shadows: The Entire TV Series
Dark Shadows: The Entire TV Series - MPI [$59.98 each]
It's finally happened. Last month, after nearly six years and 32 box sets, the entire run of Dan Curtis' classic Gothic soap opera is now available on DVD. It's all here - the original series format of standard "rich are different" Peyton Place-holding, the arrival of Josette's ghost, the unearthing of Barnabas Collins, and the nonstop amalgamation of every famous monster myth into a daily dose of 30 minute drama. While the show lost its spark toward the end (The Leviathans? Please…) it still remains a quintessential example of broadcast boundary pushing at its campy, creative best. Costly, but well worth the money.
