Thanks for posting this sad news.  My prayers are with Chris and his family.

I thought this was a hoot--great shot to choose for that headline.

Thanks for sharing the link, MB.

How quaint.  But I wonder just how familiar with the series they can really be if they're writing about the "1895" storyline...

Of course, as we all know, the series writers slid around with 1795, switching to 1796 (which did follow the calendar properly) and then to 1797 (which, alas, was pure stumbling DS discontinuity).

And I wanna know--where's the JULIA room????

Julia looks as if she's ready to royally shred a certain errant vampire in today's picture.  MEOW!

Love Chris's line, too.  Hysterical!

December of 1969 rates as a high point in the series for me.

In tonight's show, I just love the look of prim, cat-like disapproval on the Countess's face as Vicki's "shocking" attire is being paraded for the Reverend's examination.  Such bluestockinged distaste is usually more the province of Miss Abigail Collins, but the Countess more than holds her own in this delicious little moment.

Isn't there a scene where Trask comes in while Natalie is reading her cards and thunders:  "the Devil's picture-book, madam!"  It's been a really long time since I watched this storyline...

There are some great shots from Leviathan too.  My favorite is when Julia gets in Barn's face about the discovery of Quentin and he tells her to stop wasting her time.  The look on Chris's countenance seems to say, "Whoa! skating on thin ice there with the good Doctor!"

I just love these shows...

I remember the last time I watched it, I was able to kind of figure out an explication for Liz's Leviathan dream.  I can't recall now just what it was.  I wonder whether this was one of the instances where they were improvising on the spot... the only dream sequence I can recall that was creepier was the one from 1897 where Jamison dreamt that he was David in 1969 being given a fake birthday party because he was about to die or already dead.

Love today's shots of Diana Millay's big entrance in 1966.  This may be my favorite introduction of a new character.  Interesting how both Diana and Grayson played their first introductory scenes opposite KLS.

I always thought Laura's lunching hat was too offbeat for Ohrbach's; could it have been from Diana's own wardrobe?

Ha. I could see Depp playing Barnabas as a throwback to the early 18th century, complete with grand perruque, white face powder, beauty marks and lipstick, like the Patrick Magee character in Barry Lyndon.

Today's 1795 episode slideshow is really diva-rich, with a classic scene involving Abigail, Natalie and Naomi--three of the strongest actresses in the series all together in one scene, and how beautifully this snapshot from that event captures the iconic energies of the moment.  And I do love the dramatic horror of the expressions on Grayson and Clarice's faces as they act out the shocking discovery of Vicki's charm bracelet.  Fabulous stuff.

Great shots of Clarice and Joan together in the drawing room in the 1966 episode, too.

Thanks, MB!

That brisk March weather made Toddles rather ... PERKY.

Now THIS gets me in the holiday spirit.  At any rate, I know that it instills a fervently rising sense of deeply-felt RELIGIOSITY in my innermost being ... *wink*

That's fascinating about vampires being banned from Comics Code compliant books in the 1960s.  I vaguely recall reading about this.  Blame the insidious Freddy Wertheim and his crazy "seduction of the innocent" campaign.

Calendar Events / Announcements '10 II / Clip from Seizure
« on: December 08, 2010, 12:51:14 AM »
Dear Fans,

I noticed today that a few clips from the obscure Oliver Stone film "Seizure", starring Jonathan Frid,  have been posted on Youtube.  Here's one that includes what the person uploading the clip describes as a blooper from Frid:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gSWlSH0yio&feature=related

This scene includes the original working title of the movie, "Queen of Evil," in one of Jonathan's lines.

I remember watching this scene the one time I saw the movie, at a DS fan party, and having not a clue what was supposed to be going on...

She has stunning hair.  Despite the name she's from Baltimore MD and married to someone named Corey van Wagner.

I wasn't even sure that Vicki would be a character in the new film... interesting.

Ah, the many splendoured joys of Todd Blake!  Didn't Don Briscoe say in one of his very few fan interviews in his latter years that he couldn't understand why DC directed him to run around with his pajama top open?

The one beefcake moment of hoDS... but oh so delectable...

There's something quietly heartbreaking about Vicki's "sad plaid" little suitcase left abandoned in the foyer.  I seem to recall mscbryk writing quite an eloquent post on that suitcase.  There's such an air of "second hand Rose" about it.

Great captures from today's 1966 show.  On another topic, I agree with MB about the end of 1968.  I'm always sad to see that odd little batch of episodes come up.  There's something so jarring about these--the writing is for the most part horrendous, the direction for Rodan just doesn't work and poor Betsy Durkin sticks out like a sore thumb (not her fault).
