Without going into detail by detail, did we learn anything new about jonathan, what I mean is did we get to see his obscure works outside of dark shadows, I only knew him to be in two horror movies and a bunch of plays that Im not sure ever had anyone film.
What's on your mind?
I watched this as a young kid and loved it. I'm surprised now that my mom let me watch it. I'm enjoying seeing it on ME-TV.
I was wondering if it's ever explained how Barnabus has money after he escapes from his coffin and returns to Collinwood. He's refurbishing the old house and talking about going into business with Roger. How does he have $$$?
The producers knew she was pregnant, so they were going to reveal her origins before leaving the show to have the baby, but she ended up leaving early due to complications. Would she have played a character in the 1897 flashback?
I just noticed that the "400's +" episode links are missing from the main Episode list (Original series, of course!). It jumps from 400 to 526. I don't know how to fix it. Somebody check it out. (The 400's appear under the heading "4", but this is the first episode list that seems incomplete.)
Im sure I am not the first person to ask this but had they decided to go with the I guess I call it 2nd original plan cause the original plan was to never introduce the supernatural, that was done as an act of desperation but for the 2nd plan was to kill barnabas and never redeem him, it basically would have been house of dark shadows, obviously we can go down the speculation of the shows viewers getting lower, but I mean had he died before his flashback of 1795, it could have esentially changed most of the show, I mean angelique would have no reason to show up other than to bring him back since she loved him, nicholas could have come only to force julia to make his frankenstein type creatures but even julie was originally supposed to die and supposed to be a man character. Quentin and chris I suppose could have still shown up but a different character would have had to go in the past to stop quentin dying, the leviathan story could have happened with that character, same for parallel time story maybe to escape their world for a better one. The gerard/1840 story might have happened with two different characters, and technically jonathan could still have come back to do his bramwell thing. Overall to me it would have been worse but not tremedously worse, I love barnabas but he was kind of a one note character after a while, this is a guy who spent most of his life in a coffin and just spent most of his arc trying to survive being a vamp, curing himself of vamp or getting a new love interest, I think a reason so many people remember him fondly is he was sort of a first of his kind, a vampire who felt remorse.
But yeah would the original plan to kill him have been better, worse or the same quality of what we got?
Does anyone have any info from word of mouth via conventions and interviews of the 3rd film they had planned, the resurrection of barnabas collins, im curious what they were going to do apart from bringing him back. Honestly the thing I find strange it they were going to call it that but at the end of house of DS, he clearly lives cause he turns into a bat and flies off.
I'm new to the discussion group. A while back I purchased the complete DVD set of the series, and have been watching them over the last few months.
I have also bought the 2 Dark Shadows theatrical releases: House of Dark Shadows, and Night of Dark Shadows.
I have just gotten to the end of the 1795 storyline. And last night watched the episode where Professor Stokes makes his first appearance at Collinwood.
My question is: at which point in the TV show story line, is it ok to watch the two movies?
I haven't watched any of the theatrical movies yet, because I don't want any spoilers to interfere with my enjoyment of the TV episodes/story line.
Didn't know how to report a page, so I thought I'd post it here.
Could someone take a look at the summary for episode 108? Whoever wrote it doesn't like Victoria Winters, especially in the second half of the episode summary.
"For some reason, Victoria catches on but doesn't scream her fool head off."
"Victoria does some stellar sleuthing to call out Matthew; her one use of brainpower and she misuses it. She becomes a hostage."
I'm not the biggest fan of Vicky myself, but that's just unprofessional and rude.
Hey guys, I published my first review on Vocal media, focused on Dark Shadows!
I go into detail on each arc of the show, providing my own opinion on them, and also discuss some trivia and some of other Dark Shadows media. Hope you like it!

Is anybody else having trouble accessing and reading the "Dark Shadows From The Beginning" blog by prisonerofthenight? I was really enjoying it up until yesterday evening, and all of the sudden it seems to have disappeared on me! It's telling me that the WordPress site is private and I can no longer access it. Wondering if it's just me or if prisonerofthenight decided to take the blog down??
Now that the cw reboot isnt happening, to anyone who has seen the audio dramas, do they ever answer some of the hanging questions left from the show?
what did jeb look like in leviathan form, i always imagined a snake looking creature
who made the parallel time worlds in the room in the east wing of collinwood and why?, i guess the why of it all is to give people a 2nd chance like barnabas was hoping for
did petofi and blackwood make it out alive of the fire?-apparently petofi did spoiler alert
i guess i'd like to know if there were any vampires before barnabas, that would be cool.
And are there other supernaturals out there we've never seen?
what made gerard and the other spirits come in 1970-i dont think that was ever explained, quentins spirit came out of his room the kids opened but like gerards ghost came after barnabas and julia went from 1970 parallel time to 1995
are there other werewolves that show up
If Collinwood was in Maine, why did it never snow?
Does anyone want to try to find the I guess directors cuts of house and night of dark shadows cause lord knows I've tried looking on the internet and cant find it, I have no idea where to look. Yet one avenue we should not get on is dark and deep web, lets not go down that route. I dont want to believe that missing footage is lost forever.
Cause that reunion special made me really want the question of the footage to be asked about.
It is so frustrating to watch Trask get away with so much. Come on Barnabas get a step ahead please lol!!
I was only 6 or 7 to when I'd skip school and watch with my mother. It's a bond I cherish especially now she's gone. My love for old horror shows comes from my time with her watching Dark Shadows.
My question: I thought I remembered Peter was, at one time, a werewolf. Was he? Was there ever a werewolf on the show? It may be a false memory but it seems true.
I just recently retired and found out that the entire series of Dark shadows is available for viewing on Tubi. This is awesome for me since there were many episodes I missed, including the later seasons which were filmed in color. I kind of wished they had a chatroom availble since it would be kind of cool to talk to other DS fans. At least I have time now to view the *entire series.
If both of Naomi Collins's children died without reproducing, how did the Collins family line continue?
Why is so little information available about Frank Schofield? His birth and death dates are unknown & not available anywhere. It's very strange that the surviving cast members of Dark Shadows are so close and yet no one ever talks about Frank. Kathryn Leigh Scott has written many books about Dark Shadows and acted with Frank on the show so it seems odd that she hasn't written about him.
