Thanks for posting this.  Denise is a real kick.  She should be invited to more DS events!

Fascinated by this scene.  Thanks again, MB.

I am going to be offline most likely between Sunday morning (very early) and sometime the following Sunday evening.  I'll look forward to catching up with this series via this thread upon my return.

Fascinated by this scene.  Again, I barely remember Julia having more than 10 seconds onscreen from the screening I attended (and I'm really wondering now if I simply fell asleep at some point).  From today's line, it would appear that Julia is already well ahead of everyone else in comprehending what's going on.

I had thought the scene just completed had a lot in common with the same scene in the 1991 series.  Many thanks for all the annotations and extra info!  If I understood you correctly, none of this scene survived in the edit of the pilot that we saw in 2005 (if that was indeed the year).

My total amnesia of what's being described continues, so again, I appreciate your carefully composed notes and vivid descriptions.

Best, G.

I think he meant the ACTUAL episode 70.  But then, I wasn't aware that Netflix was currently carrying the 1966 episodes.  At one time they did have the discs for the Collector's series available.

I was so taken aback that I did not think to try to get more out of him about it.  But I did explain who Josette was.  lol

Fans,

Friday afternoon I was able to attend the Boston Comic Con on a day pass. The costume display was phenomenal.  I saw Queen Maleficent, multiple Spidermen (some of them female), Thor and Loki, a number of Death Star troopers, this one inventive lad in a sort of evil scarecrow costume on chrome stilts with ferrules on the bottoms, several very odd people (mostly female, again) in these colored leotards that entirely covered the face, Spy vs. Spy from the old Mad Magazine comics.... I'm sure I'm forgetting many.  A lot of the costumes were for characters I do not know of course.  There  was even a fully operational TARDIS in one corner. 

I wore a Dark Shadows t-shirt and got reactions from several people. This was a total surprise.  I really was not in the mood to attract attention, but a volunteer at the reg desk immediately recognized it and commented upon how cool it was.  (This was one of Julia99's beautiful "Grayson's Legion" shirts.)  The reactions varied throughout the day but were overwhelmingly positive.  Perhaps  the strangest was from  this very friendly dealer from whom I purchased a 1960s copy of MONSTER WORLD.  I'd say he was probably around 32.  He said he and his wife had started watching DS on Netflix.  And he said they were around episode 70.  Since I know way too much about the program I said, "ah!  you just enjoyed the first sighting of Josette's ghost!"  He looked puzzled and said, "Who's Josette?"  Oh dear...

Presumably they may have been multi-tasking while watching the episodes...

Best,  G.

Kosmo deserves some kind of award for ability to find out the most obscure details about the casting of any given film. Was Rimmer's face even seen on camera and did he have any lines at all?  He has a very distinguished roster of credits from the golden era of the 1960s and 1970s under his name on IMDB.

If I remember correctly, he did voice work on cult series THUNDERBIRDS for Gerry Anderson and that is usually the focal point of his appearance at such functions.

Again, I'm impressed at just how many plot points were foreshadowed or introduced in this screenplay.  I know I've asked before and you said the screenplay was written as an ordinary (40 min.) length TV episode but it seems as if it would have been much more effective with an 85 minute running time (for a two hour air slot)--old school feature-length.

But, as you would say Misterioso darling, alas...

For those who wish to see it, the deleted scene from season 1 of PENNY DREADFUL screened at SDCC has been posted on Youtube.  The scene, though it was originally part of an early episode of the season (episode 2, I believe; it would have come, possibly, at the end) is being described as "spoilery" because it foreshadows developments to be played out in the new season next year:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU0BjgtsUxI

It's also a bit spoilery (just a bit) for the first season finale episode.

I have to say, this clip really encapsulates just why this season gives off major DARK SHADOWS vibrations to me... I would submit that THIS is the direction anyone choosing to attempt to revive DS again should explore.  I personally feel that DS is probably better off resting on its laurels, at this point...

Cool!  I will look for the clip on Youtube tomorrow.

Since she was unable to appear in San Diego, it will be fascinating to hear her thoughts regarding the new series of Penny Dreadful.

Alec if anything is even sexier now than back in 2004!  That was a great role for him in DRACULA.  Wish the character had gotten more than one episode; nice to think he got a free trip to Hungary out of it.

Thanks for this awesome narrative, MB.  Again, I have no recollection at all of this scene from the screening.  I'm starting to wonder if I had dozed off.  BTW I am very happy to report that I have finally gotten a diagnosis for my sleep apnea and am at the end of day 3 of sleeping with a CPAP.  And the change, for the better, is already phenomenal.

Wow.  Banner work from you with this, MB!   Could they have crammed anymore into that scene?  We have Barnabas introducing himself to the family, Roger's hostility, the Barnabas-Vicki connection, David's issues, Sarah, the Josette backstory (implied, only) ... all in about 5 minutes of footage?  Whew.

I wonder whether any outtakes exist for the edit of the pilot that has been screened multiple times?

Quite intrigued to see what's coming next!  I wonder whether a certain WITCH is about to show up...

The confusion comes from the fact that Maine's territory was part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1820, when Maine voted to secede and become its own state.  This means that 1810, when the backstory of NIGHT OF DS was set, Collinsport was still a part of Massaachusetts:

Well, Grayson got some weeks off in '68 to do END OF THE ROAD (filmed in Great Barrington, MA, out in the beautiful Berkshires), and in '69 to do ADAM AT SIX A.M.  In '70 she got release time to do an episode of NIGHT GALLERY and then, towards the end of the year, a family trip out to Ohio to visit Sam's family. 

If you check through a publication from the 1960s called THEATRE WORLD, you can see photos from some of the plays that Louis did when he had his sabbaticals.  Even Lara and Selby did plays or films on their breaks from the show.
