To michael c,

I had come to the same conclusions that you did as regards events revealed in the track listing titles.  My own thoughts:

[spoiler]Burton could only get HBC to agree to do the movie if her character was killed off.  I think she did it as a favor to hubs, basically.  My guess is that the Julia's death occurs roughly in the narrative where Carolyn's did in house of DS.  I haven't a clue about Roger. And Vicki's role in the movie is a complete cypher to me at this point. [/spoiler]

I kind of feel a weird mixture of squeamishness and profound disinterest around actually sitting through the movie.  Just keeping it real for what it's worth.

I found it on IMDB, and there is a major spoiler in the track listing, but you have to mouseover a sort of word curtain that says "spoilerspoilerspoiler" repeatedly to see the track listing at all.

Lee might have wound up on the cutting room floor, if it was a cameo with only one or two scenes.

After Peter Jackson cut him out of one of those Lord of the Rings movies, nothing would surprise me.

Congratulations on another fab series of captures, MB!

I think Mrs. Johnson is now officially my favorite character in this magnum opus.  That shot of her helping poor Willie with the coffin is a scream.

Looks as if this time around, everybody's in on Barn's "secret."

I suspect that as is often the case in trailers, different takes have been used of the same material.  The footage of the Carpenters gag in this new spot is the same soundtrack but the camera angles are markedly different.

Those of you who enjoy keeping track of such things will have fun when you see the movie learning just which takes wound up making it into the release print.

This is unbelievable.  but a sad reminder of why the board guidelines here stipulate, as a rule, not repeating or discussing stuff posted on other sites/forums when it's material that descends to the level of gossip/unfounded speculation etc.

I will comment that the topic of Depp Shadows seems to be bringing out a really strange side in some fans' personalities.

You know, it's only a movie, based on a TV show that is supposed to offer us some fun and diversion?  Just stop for five seconds and think about what's going on in the country and the world in what is laughingly described as real life.

cheers, G.

On a related topic, FWIW, I think I must truly be in my dotage, because I have played each of the spots a couple of times as they have been released, and nowhere did I see a scene of Angelique playing the piano.  I have to presume that either I have intermittent amnesia (which is entirely possible) or it was one of those things that went by so fast I just failed to pick up on what was going on.

I've been amazed at details I have been able to spot in MB's screen captures from the various trailers.  There are some pretty fab bits of set decor lurking around in there.

Hey Janet, did old Guthrie DIE ... BY ... FIRE?

Penny, that drawing is superb!  absolutely love it and love you for posting it!

Fangs for the memories,

Uncle Gothick (emphasis on the "ICK!  the Thing that wouldn't die!" bwahahaha!)

Amanda, that documentary sounds fascinating.  Thanks.

I was (and still am) a fan of a 1990s series called Poltergeist: the Legacy.  It had very little to do with the Poltergeist films; it was one of those psychic investigation team series.  Anyhow, there was this one writer whose email got out to the fan community.  He wrote the best scripts for the series, with layered characterizations, intriguing nuances, witty dialogue, etc.  I wrote to him a few times over the years and he was always gracious enough to respond.

I'll never forget our exchange about the last script he wrote for the series.  I wrote to congratulate him (they had pretty much stopped using him at that point) and he told me that in the final filming script, there were only two words, or maybe it was two sentences, left from his original script!  But he got paid and got the onscreen byline anyway!  As dear Grayson used to say, Who can figure anything, especially in "Hollywood" (technically Poltergeist was produced in Vancouver).

DS was way ahead of other 1960s soap operas.  Sy Tomasoff's sets were build and detailed to a level that was far in advance of the standard of the day.  Bob Cobert's score had avant-garde elements and a level of artistry that left the campy organ cues of other soaps in the dust.  At a time when standard soap scripts were mainly about the nasty slattern down the street, DS was evoking everything from Dracula to The Little Foxes (by Miss Hellman). 

I know I am singing to the choir but honestly...

Darren, congratulations on being given the opportunity to revise and improve that chapter!  I will look forward to the book now for your contribution alone.

Really?  There are omissions and equivocations in the chapter on the 2004 pilot?  I'm shocked.  Simply shocked.  Why, I always thought of Miss Scott and Mister Pierson as authors of the most unsullied candor.

am I winking or do I have something in my eye,

Thanks Joey; interesting to hear, and hardly comes as a surprise.

Any observations or thoughts on the photos?

Best, G.

Such coolness, and the writer (yourself?) has a delicious command of something dear to my heart that used to be known as the English language... "icy carapace" has a marvelous ring to it.  FAAAAABulous!

Penny Dreadful in the comics is quite the Goddess, but she just doesn't have quite the distinctive charm that you yourself radiate in the flesh.

Hoping the comic is a huge success!  I need to order it!

hugs, Gothick

Episode 18 is now available, launching the kidnapping of Maguette Bevans and the first appearance of the ghost of Chera Ballins (who seems to have a distinctive propensity for show-tune arrangements of folk songs).

Love the set design for Julia's lab.  It's so lusciously theatrical as are so many of the key sets in this opus.

Funny that Angelique doesn't appear at all in this one.  Haven't a clue why not since she is so important to what we've been told about this story.

Thanks so much for the captures, MB.  The images whizz by far too quickly otherwise. 

BarnaDepp looks as if he is wondering "what sort of claret cup is that?" as he watches the people (in the Blue Whale?) eating ice cream sundaes.
