The one for hoDS is a delight as well... you chose two of my favorite images of Julia and Liz for it... I gather that this one will also change monthly as well.

cheers, G.

I am LOVING the aspect of the theme that includes screen captures from various episodes of the original series that ran during January.  Love the shot of Grayson flipping out, and Liz clutching that deliciously tacky shopping bag where she's packin' that pistol agonizing whether or not to shoot Julia.

Just great stuff!!!

She-wolf and Forever Knight are both great shows, but I don't own She-wolf.  I did watch the DVDs via Netflix and that was enough.  I thought the LA episodes worked better than is usually claimed, but you do have to completely swtich circuits because the feel and flavor changes so drastically.  The London shows were more consistent and had a really great recurrent cast, notably the actress who played Ian's aunt--I think her name was Dorothea Philips.  There's also a hilarious episode where they spoof Star Trek and its conventions, "Beyond the Beyond."  This was later turned into a full-length novel by writer Lee Goldberg.

I remember seeing some fun episodes of Friday the 13th back when it was on in the early 1990s.  I haven't felt moved to check out the DVD release.

Of them all I would say Forever Knight is to me the most iconic, and that is mainly (for me) because of the brilliant central performances by lead actor Geraint Wyn Davies, Nigel Bennett (who also appeared on Psi Factor, a show that is worth checking out--some of the season 3 discs are available through Netflix), and Deborah Duchene.  The actress who played the doctor trying to cure Nick who fell in love with him a la Julia Hoffman was very good as well.  Unlike on DS, Nick did at least somewhat reciprocate the dr's feelings for him.  (Although as often discussed, one could argue that Barnabas did reciprocate Julia's feelings on some level--he just did a very poor job of expressing it--AND a tendency to rove after the latest Sweet Young Thing on the scene!)

Thanks for this post, Patti.  I thought I was the only DS fan on the planet who truly appreciates the delirium that is late Leviathans.

It's fabulous to see it today, MB!  Thanks again!

Best,

My belated birthday blessings to you, Patty, and my heartfelt condolences upon your loss.  May your memories of him in happier times bring you comfort.

Best, Steve (Gothick)

It IS interesting, Cathy, given that the ONLY promotional material that has been released were three magazine photographs four months ago.

The fact that the title is showing up on all these lists is almost enough to make one wonder about payola... but, we know the "Industry" doesn't operate that way any longer ... don't we?  *wink*

I finished watching it tonight, and I thought the opening segment with Sebastian Cabot was the best part by far. But it was interesting and fun to see.

Thanks again for posting the link!

Did the MTV weekly DS column/feature dry up? I figured it might have done simply for lack of material...

I somehow see Depp Shadows as spawning its own fandom with their own thing.  I don't know whether they will do conventions or whether it will all just be online.  The press about that Comicon a few months ago and how the big studios are perceived as withdrawing from it because the current buzz is that people would rather just do everything online as opposed to traveling to an in-person, fleshspace event, if founded upon legitimate perceptions of younger fan behavior, could again mean only marginal overlap between the Depp Shadows fans and the classic series fans.

But maybe I haven't a clue what I'm nattering on about ... time will tell.  I've already been surprised at all the twittering around episodes of the classic series that I gather people are streaming via Netflix...

I thought it was "mustang vest"--a style of vest popular in the late Sixties--more Quentin's line than Barnabas', actually.

Thanks again MB for all your hard work.  The difference, at least visually, is really quite dramatic, so I can only guess at how extreme the stuff YOU have to deal with must be.

Thanks for reassuring us that the current look is a placeholder, and please do take whatever time you need to get it all done to your satisfaction.

Best wishes,

Gothick

Wow, Barnabas Jr, this is excellent!  I love the little opening monologues by Sebastian Cabot... we don't see acting of this flair and calibre very much anymore...

Happy New Year!

MB, it's fascinating that you have such an exhaustive knowledge of the production history of this series, and such a rich store of rare material relating to it.

Thanks for the work you and Midnite did on this project.  I found it much more interesting than I had expected, and certainly more engaging than watching the actual series (from 1991) has ever proved...

Just a line to thank you, MB, for dealing with all this.

I am at the point now where I have a knee-jerk reaction to "oh, ANOTHER upgrade???" particularly since some developers seem to roll them out every two to three months now.

You're a gem!  Happy New Year!

G.
