It is rather apparent that, in NoDS, Lara Parker got some help from the props department as she wasn't, shall we say, rather bodacious on the series.  It's easily confirmed by the scene in "Race With the Devil" where she is swimming with Loretta Swit dressed in a bikini.  While suitably blessed by nature, she certainly wasn't - um - Dolly Parton.

Well, at least there was enough money in the budget to provide Lara with underwear. Poor Nancy Barrett had to go without skivvies as vampire Carolyn in HODS.

But when it comes to DS movies, NoDS sctually had a lot more than the 2012 version did - especially the R-rated version...

I remember more breast grabbing (clothed), more thigh touching (again, clothed) and more tongue. Was there anything else that I'm forgetting (on the sex--not violence--side)?

 [pointing-up]  There was definitely more to the tower room encounter between Angelique and Charles before Gabriel & Co. rudely interrupted them...

Look forward to a few different style of promos leading up to the show's March 1st return...

And today's is another must quote:


Ep #1 - Sarah: 'You must stop, Barnabas.'

I don't know how I could have forgotten about that one...

We're getting close to "Shadow Time" helping to block out the Toxic Roaches (not to be confused with the Barking Spiders)...

One thing that's not in dispute is that the '91 Series had good demos. Though one thing that might be in dispute is which gender the audience was more comprised of. I've read that more men watched the show than women and how that surprised NBC. But I've also read that the show had the most men as well as the most women who were watching TV on Friday nights. Perhaps both could actually be true depending on which week's demos and how those demos were analyzed. But one thing that's not up to debate is that prior to airing Ep #9 (Hour 10) NBC decided to begin an ad campaign to reach out to women. Apparently this was also because the initial ad campaign mostly emphasized the vampire/horror aspects of the show and not the romance. NBC suddenly realized that if they focused on romance perhaps they could attract more women or even more women, depending on which demo analysis one wants to go with. Hence the "Shadow Time" ad campaign was born and the first promo of that campaign aired on February 25th:


Look forward to a few different promos in this campaign...

Love all the ads you've been posting, MB! These are a blast from the past, particularly since I am from New Beige so even the station IDs are nostalgic. lol. I recorded a bunch too, and have a VHS somewhere. I distinctly remember one that a woman singing, "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth". The camera then goes in for a closeup on Barnabas' mouth and (of course) he bares his fangs. lol. You might have posted it earlier in the thread. I'll need to go through and watch all of them.

I'm so glad you've been enjoying them. I've definitely been enjoying sharing them.

(Seeing snippets from 1991 of some of the WJAR staff has been wild - they look so young - but then we've all aged 30 years...)

I hadn't posted that one this time around. I did post it back in 2008 but it was in a format that's no longer supported. One of the reasons I've been posting the promos/previews/recaps that I have is because the versions I'd previously posted are no longer watchable. And with that in mind here is that promo that first ran on December 22nd:
