Dark Shadows ran from 6/27/66 to 4/2/71.
It was a Gothic soap opera that was way ahead of it’s time. The actors on this program were some of the best that have ever been seen. Jonathan Frid, who played Barnabas Collins, the vampire, was simply awesome.
The other actors were all top flight of their profession. Sigh, you don’t see many actors who really know how to act anymore. Thank God the series is preserved on DVD. I’m currently watching this series. It is excellent!
I’ll be interested to see how Johnny Depp does in the upcoming Dark Shadows movie in 2012.
