This link was posted on a Me-TV board a little while ago; it's a blog post specifically about the DS rumors:

http://www.bubblews.com/news/906415-the-return-of-dark-shadows

It's interesting how popular mid 1960s series continue to be.  Another post on the same board is about reruns of Mr. Ed and Patty Duke running on a network called Antenna, along with I Dream of Jeannie. It would be interesting to know what the demographics are with respect to the audiences--aging boomers or are some of the young hipsters who enjoy style elements of the 1950s and 1960s tuning in as well.

That family tree looks about right to me, MB.  [spoiler]Magda's curse specified that the taint went through the male line, so a daughter wouldn't pass it on to her son (Joe Haskell).[/spoiler]

I agree that it's huge fun watching Vampilique do her thing.  Although Cassandra is my favorite of all the variants on Angelique, I do think in many ways that the original 1795 portrayal was the most interesting because they focused more on specifics of Angelique's personality as a scorned woman and less on all the superwitch hocus-pocus.  Of course as a kid I just couldn't wait to see what her next spell or piece of enchantment would be...

A friend sent me a note this morning saying there's a rumor on the Internet that the Me-TV network, which shows many classic TV shows (some of them, such as THE ROGUES from around 1965-66, previously unknown to me, but excellent, quality television), has signed a deal to run DARK SHADOWS, the original 1966-71 series.

If true, this would be an EXCELLENT showcase for our series, and make it even more popular.  With series such as AMERICAN HORROR STORY and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES constantly referring to DS in their publicity (and in at least some cases, plotlines), I think young people are curious, and often wind up becoming very enthusiastic viewers of our show.

Let's hope this will be confirmed via official news release soon.

I wonder if "Bello" magazine is available in the US.  It sounds like an Italian men's mag. 

Joseph Morgan is just too damn sexy... I'm jelly looking at that photo!

And the Youtube link:

I always love it when Angelique summons one of her victims and that delicious music plays... "Let the wind carry my voice to you..."

The smirk seems tres Willy Wonka.

The scene did nothing for me.  But Julia's fangs were cool.  I wonder if HBC did the film only on the proviso that she got to have fangs somewhere down the line.  I could imagine her making that stipulation.  I AM a Helena fan.

And for any who need it, watch the episode which begins with a lovely intro recited by Grayson Hall, here:

It always seems strange to me whenever the script has people referring to Angelique as a "girl."  It's bad taste to refer to a woman's age in public, but when this show was aired, 30 was but a memory for the beautiful woman who incarnated Our Favorite Witch.

It's too bad the Ian Somerhalder/Joseph Morgan action just seems to be one big tease.  I might actually tune in to this thing if they pursued this as a storyline.

When are these shows going to get the memo that what their fanbase really involves is ladies (and no doubt some gentlemen) who pant at the thought of some serious boy-on-boy action??

But no point lacerating myself further about the cluelessness of the suits in H'wood...

Did she get much screen time?  I don't recall the character at all.  Of course it was, what, seven years ago that I had the one viewing of the thing...

and of course, one of the images chosen for the story isn't Angelique at all, but Lara Parker portraying Catherine Harridge Collins.

Please remind me who Jenna Dewan played in the WB pilot?

Judah Zachery was supposed to have had a coven.  I think it met in Bedford Maine.  I remember Julia pronounced coven with a long o like the word "cove" with an n attached.

During the Gerard storyline in 1840 there was talk of Judah's coven being revived.  The lawyer character played by Humbert was supposed to be a surviving descendant member of the original Bradford coven, I believe.

It was kind of amusing how every time a lawyer appeared on DS, he seemingly turned out to be a devil-worshipper of some kind or other...

The original concept for Angelique was that she had learned some herbal lore and spellcraft, presumably from her mother; she was a type of what today would be called a Hedge Witch, solitary apart from any family members who might have instructed her.  It wasn't until she showed up in 1968 that we began to get all the frou-frou about the Devil, presumably as a result of ROSEMARY'S BABY.

Another emblematic line from Julia:  "I no longer know what is right and what is wrong.  I only know what is necessary."

I thought Karlen took the acting award in this episode.  He made the situation feel very real.

Parker was always so good at [spoiler]those climactic vampire bites--wonder if she had been to see some of the Hammer horror films of the period; definitely a touch reminiscent of those.[/spoiler]

This is an example of an episode which features both Grayson and Parker, but Parker does the voice-over.

For those who need it, the episode can be viewed here:

I LUV Grayson's chic grey suit... exquisite... did she wear it in any other episode?

"I don't know if I can go through with this ... madness."  I wonder sometimes if cast members quoted that line at one another sometimes in rehearsal.

I remember reading somewhere (it was around 15 years ago at least) that Jack Sullivan and Sean Dhu Sullivan were the same individual.  The Sixties was a time of revival of interest in the "Celtic Twilight" movement and the name change may have reflected that, if this is correct information.

Lara Parker's 1968 Vampilique look always makes me think of Dusty Springfield, particularly in the early weeks when she's allowed to have some costume changes.  The black gown with the lace collar was originally worn by Laura Collins in early 1967.

Glad to have been of help, Marge.
