  • Hi BlueWhale, glad to see that other Dark Shadows fans enjoy the recurring props like the Smith Brothers portrait. Not only is the Smith Brothers portrait seen in several places throughout the series, but also the flat for Roger's office at the cannery is one of the most frequently redressed set designs of the show's run, including the front room of Professor Stokes' apartment.


    Cheers!

      Yes I most certainly do. How can you forget the Collinsport Afghan too? LOL

    • Hello to you PrisoneroftheNight! I can almost swear that the S.Bro's portrait is used at about the same time for Stokes' place and Blairs' place. I laughed with my wife on this one. They must've run out of portrait paintings since most were probably being used in Collinwood and the Old House. ;)

  • The change you made to the Jamison Collins page is an error. Jamison Selby played Jamison Collins in the Big Finish audiobook, "A Collinwood Christmas": http://darkshadows.wikia.com/wiki/A_Collinwood_Christmas

    • No I am not 100% certain it wasn't used in any of the pre-Barnabas episodes. I have been looking out for it though. Between that and Grayson Hall's golden facial gestures and even Dennis Patrick's "finger gesturing", I find a certain degree of comic relief. :)

      So no, I'm not certain of it. If it is heard, i'll make sure to edit it in.

      Thanks

    • When you do hear the rooster, it hasn't always been indicative of Barnabas' time to return to his resting accomodations. It has also been heard just to indicate daybreak.

  • The Collinsport rooster will be acknowledged.

  • Thanks for diggin' my bit! A car went by my window today playing death metal and I thought, "Hey, dude, y'all need some 'Demon Away' throat spray." Of course, I am kidding. Take care and keep it spooky. Glad to hear of another Dark Shadows fan who actually likes spooky, rather than just keeping all the characters plain ol' domestic. (Where's the fun in that?)

    • Lol..."Demon Away". I like it..a LOT. It is, after all, about those things that go bump in the night.

      I really like the "soapy camp" and the nostalgia of it all as well. The latest fashions of 1966 and 1967 courtesy of the now defunct Ohrbach's is historic not to forget the "jargon and slang" and the popular music at the time at the Blue Whale dive.

      I am currently in the 330's of episode order and getting used to the color episodes.I'm not too thrilled with Anthony George's characterization of Burke Devlin as much as I was with Mitchell Ryan's. He is sorely missed.

      (to be continued)

    • Groovy. Yes, I've had to adapt to the 1960's style of speaking, which isn't too hard if one grew up on reruns. Well, if one ever gets tired of the colour one can always turn down the colour, depending on the set up. (hee hee hee 'demon-away'.)

    • Yes. Growing up on reruns. Star Trek, I dream of Jeanie..even the Honeymooners with Carney and Gleason.

      We (meaning me and the wife) heard one from Joe Haskell on one episode (don't remember right off the bat now)..something about "he's going to be stuffed"..I'm guessing he meant the person was going to be "sore"..ie: angry. LOL! He's going to be stuffed when he finds out he won't get his promotion. Sounds silly ;)

    • Yeah! I'm still weirded out by Maggie calling Victoria a "jerk" due to staying in the creepy/spooky Collins abode. I would have thought the word "fool" to be more appropriate. I was totally worried about certain phrases in what I was doing and that they were going to offend people, like the antiquated "Queer Street". Never got a complaint about that. Perhaps I played it safe by starting it out with "She's gone down Dorian Gray road..." Still, glad someone notices these odd phrases. Very fascinating, while also being absurd. ^_^
