I don't think Carolyn looks anxious or frightened.  Just jealous as hell.

Nancy is a brilliant actress and deserved more opportunities in her career.  Grayson said more than once that she thought Nancy was the best actress, bar none, in the group.

MB, I just noticed the new 04 pilot background montage, and I LOVE IT!  FABULOUS!

I also have to comment what a joy it is to have even part of Michael T. Weiss's shirtless physique on display for the duration of this month in the 1991 background.  Really helps keep me smiling.

cheers, G.

Oh yeah MB "John" has gotta be one of DC's crushes!--er, I mean, guys he liked to hang out with. LOL!

When I learned of his huge "admiration" for Roger Davis, it suddenly explained a lot.

Is John the guy seen doing the twist when the dance had gone out of fashion about five years before?

Nancy was so brilliant in this sequence.  I loved how they did her hair for it, too.

Those Lyndhurst behind the scenes photos are awesome!  Brilliant finds!  Congratulations, MB! I would love to know who played "John"!

And what a laugh that KLS described the show as a "put-on"!  Clearly, that was before she realized her life's work was going to be serving as professional Queen of Dark Shadows!

I wonder if copies of the hoDS novelization ever show up at less than extreme prices?  It would be fun to read it again.  His descriptions of those scenes are such a camp hoot!

cheers, G.

Some of his 1970s TV guest roles weren't all that great in terms of making proper use of his incredible talent.  I did finally get to see his work on the short lived David McCallum series, THE INVISIBLE MAN a year or so ago.  That was a good part for him.

That was a really fun role for Thayer.  I like it the best of the two episodes he did on WEST.

Hope you enjoy it!

That's a very cool gif, MB.  Fabulous work!

This scene was shot in such a cinematic, fluid way, and the music used counterpointed what was happening beautifully.

If only Tim Burton had hired Lara Parker to be his script doctor. IF ONLY.

A friend warned me yesterday that if I don't stop with the eyerolls, they're gonna get stuck one day...

Poor Carolyn... she asked way too many questions and made the mistake of using the expression "dying to get to know you" around her mysterious new cousin...

It's a shame Nancy wasn't more effectively used in either film.  She did have a little more of substance to do in NoDS which is another reason why it's the better film...

Current Talk '17 I / Re: He's So Mean

It is interesting in retrospect how negative fan reaction was in December of '69 when he suddenly became a coldly calculating villain again.  They did not like it at all.  I still think those are some of the best shows they did...

I was shocked when I got to see the 1967 shows for the first time in early 1976 when the first syndication happened in my area.  Both Barnabas and Julia were so different from the people I remembered from my viewing in the Sixties.  I also started watching in June of '68.

Current Talk '17 I / Re: DS episodes online
« on: April 24, 2017, 12:23:30 AM »
A lot of people now believe that physical media (such as CDs and DVDs/BDs) have gone the way of the dinosaur.  This fiction is being promoted by some huge corporate media megaliths that want you to get rid of anything you have in the way of physical media and just sign up for subscription services that you'll pay for for the rest of your life.

Anything that is not available via some kind of streaming or online access could just as well not exist for a lot of people. 

The article on the Collinsport Historical Society about some selected DS DVD sets being streamed by public libraries via a protocol called HOOPLA was interesting.  Part of the problem with this is that a lot of the people who think physical media went out the window circa 2005 also think that public libraries are on the way into the dustbin of history. Most don't even know where their local library is or how to go about getting a library card (I imagine you can do it online now but I don't know--I'm sure it varies in different states and systems).

As a librarian who works in technical services, which involves acquiring and cataloguing resources, the attitudes and trends that the top leaders in the profession are focusing on are extremely frustrating.  In all fairness, those of us involved in "information management" or "metadata management" (just plain old librarianship no longer exists) are constantly bombarded with requests to learn about the hot new platform/protocol/service/space what have you... everything to do with information and media is now relentlessly driven by non-stop innovation because it's all about making people upgrade to the latest, shiniest new product.  The top people have to manage all this and try to plan for a future where we're constantly being given new information about what libraries will look like and what kind of services we will be expected to provide.

Sorry for the digression.  As I said, I thank God Herself I own the DS DVDs!

I found the link about this.  No timeline is given for when the shows are going to disappear--a lot of them are listed as "expiring."

I don't have the service so I find how they handle our show confusing--they seem to divide the original DVD boxes into "seasons."

http://www.collinsporthistoricalsociety.com/2017/04/hulu-hemorrhaging-more-dark-shadows.html

I feel for people who might have just started paying for it thinking they were going to have access to DS.

There was a story posted on a couple of DS book of face groups a few days ago, I think originating from the Collinsport History Museum site, stating that all or nearly all of the DS episodes on Hulu were going to be pulled.

Feeling so grateful for my DVDs whenever I read such things.  Nice to know that a lot of the shows are on Daily Motion, too.
