That's a wonderful photo of him. He is one s-e-x-y gent.

She Wolf of London, later re-titled Love and Curses, back in the early 1990s had a female werewolf, played by the wonderful Kate Hodge. So that was an earlier series that was focused around a woman-wolf.  The episodes filmed in the UK were wonderful and some of the US-set shows were better than widely touted (IMO, of course).  I revisited the series via Netflix a few years ago.

The new series could be interesting... I will look for a trailer on the Tube.

I have a VHS tape of Gidget Gets Married and it's pretty bland fare.  Joan plays the sympathetic (and, of course, matronly) wife of some CEO-type jerk Jeff/Moondoggie, Gidget's hubby, needs to please to get ahead in the Stepford-like community they've moved into.

Joan only had a couple of scenes but looked elegant as always... and I could listen to her voice recite from the phonebook..

The movie might be on Youtube.  I noticed recently that Gidget grows up, which is a lot more fun, is there.

My friend (who I think became a fan of Tom Misor thanks to his role in PARADE'S END) was watching with Tumblr opened and said that she saw a new fandom being born.  After the first ten minutes, the photos, screen captures, and fangirl ravings began to cluster thick and fast.

The trailer practically played like an homage to Depp Shadows.  I have to say I would have enjoyed the latter a lot more had Barnabas been played along the lines of how Misor is portraying Ichabod Crane.  But I'll spare you the rant.

I just played this trailer, which practically qualifies as a mini-episode of the new Sleepy Hollow series starting this evening (9/16)--I spotted a few visual and other references that suggest the "writers and producers of Star Trek" are big fans of the Burton/Depp DARK SHADOWS.  Warning, SPOILERS if you plan to watch tonight (or record it and watch in the week), and you don't like spoilers, you'll probably want to wait and watch this trailer till AFTER you see the episode:

When I was young, Ichabod Crane was a gawky, tremulous scholar.  Now he's a hot, hunky soldier with an Oxbridge accent.  Times change, and not just from the 18th to the 21st century...

Haven't read this particular installment yet but David del Valle's Camp David blog is always one of the most amusing, and info-fillled, places on the Net.

Thanks to Kosmo for pointing us towards it, and to Midnite for posting.

Great capture today, MB--Pfeiffer with KLS, Lara and David. 

I don't remember Carolyn's line at all.  But then, I only saw it one time, and I didn't even realize when I was watching that Roger was going through the guests' coats to try and rip off their wallets, etc. before getting down to biz with Miss Check-girl.

Roger's role was so heavily cut down that I personally find it difficult to evaluate much about the character as shown.  He was certainly meant to be a sleazeball--that does come through with crystalline clarity.

But then, I'm so far from being an authority on the Burton-Depp production that even to comment may seem laughable...

It's really good to see you posting again Philippe.  Wishing you all the very best.

I've never seen Kim K in action and I still don't know what the HELL the women in that family ever did to justify the nonstop tabloid attention their lives seem to warrant.  They have a lot of cash, a penchant for trailer trash levels of romantic melodrama, use too much eyeliner and are on TV.  Who cares?  I don't.

Say what you will about Morgan, and I suspect this doesn't help you Bob, but some of us have very fond memories of Morgan's exciting and surprisingly active 1840s trouser snake. 

Mad Morgan did a hysterical cackle with great enthusiasm.  Uhhh... did Morgan have other talents? Tight revealing trousers that helped one "Hel-LO!" wake up in the morning, and a lurid cackle.  That may be it.

yours in cybaeria,

goth-EEEEK (or Morgan's preferred alias... go THICK)

The Liz Montgomery episode definitely has some DS resonances and is quite cute.

My personal favorite episode may be "A Wig for Miss Devore" because I could imagine a similar story playing out with one of Lara Parker's Cassandra wigs some feckless aging actress comes across in a junkshop.  A tie would be this story co-starring Jo van Fleet and John Carradine... can't recall the title, but the ancient Witch Goddess Circe is involved.

Some of the episodes are really pretty mediocre.  The quality varies a lot in terms of the scripting.

Another spiritual grandfather of DS has to be Vincent Price.  A friend sent me this link:

http://laughingsquid.com/a-huge-silver-ring-that-features-vincent-prices-head/

It made me think of how intriguing it would have been doing one of the storylines where Barn had been trapped in his coffin if a mysterious visitor arrived at Collinwood wearing a silver ring carved with the likeness of Barnabas' face!

THRILLER was a show I always craved to see but whenever it would show up, it would be in some weird time slot or a channel we couldn't get (this would have been when it was in syndication in the late 60s and 70s).  I finally caught up with quite a few episodes some years ago but there's still many I have yet to see.

There are a couple where instead of doing one 50 minute story, they break it up and do two shorter stories.  In one of these Karloff plays a philosophical morgue attendant who can talk to the dead.  It's one of the creepiest, most poignant things I've ever seen on television.  If Karloff had done a cameo on DS, I'd have hoped he could have a role like that of the morgue attendant. 

A number of the stories have a definite DS flavor... I think you would enjoy the shows, MB, though I have no idea when you'd have time to watch them, especially with all the exciting new shows coming on this autumn.

After decades of watching the show off and on, I have to confess I really, REALLY wish they had done a scene where Julia bitch-slapped Barnabas.  Particularly, say, in Parallel Time when if they kill the comatose Roxanne, problem solved and everybody can come home again and Barn is all puppy-eyed and moaning, "But she is so beautiful..."

Julia bitch-slapped more characters than anyone else on DS, but the really important slap never happened.

Since I consider Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, John Carradine, Peter Lorre et al to be spiritual grandfathers to DS, I thought it would be worth reporting that the cable channel Cozi TV is scheduled to show Karloff's final known appearance on film.  An episode of the Gene Barry series NAME OF THE GAME called, I think, "The White Birch," is supposed to air at 3:30 a.m. on Friday Sept. 20.  Please doublecheck your listings before programming your device.

It is said that this was the last time dear Boris went before the cameras; the episode was aired after his death.
