Vicki's reactions to people in 1795 kept reminding me of the Wizard of Oz. At the end when she was back in 1968 I wish there had been scene where she was in bed and Liz, Carolyn, Roger and Julia were clustering around and she said:"And you were there, and YOU were there and you, and you... and some of it was terrible but some of it was wonderful..."

They did have characters reacting to Ned's resemblance to Jeff, and Sebastian's resemblance to Jeb.  Poor Carolyn initially thought Sebastian was Jeb back from the dead.

I think Depp would make a great Carol Channing.  My all time favorite performance of his is as the drag queen in "Before Night Falls."  Sheer theatrical brilliance.

Close to 25 episodes of the cult Gothic daytime drama series Strange Paradise have been loaded onto Youtube on this channel:

Enjoy!

Wow, what a gallery.

If anyone posts Youtube video of Evan Hanley, I'd love to see it.  He's uncannily on-target as Nicholas.

Thanks again, Midnite.  One thing that David's remarks highlight for me is the intellectuality of the show which was one of the things that attracted me to it for the long term.  Even with the often absurd plots and scripts, the intellectuality of the actors and their commitment to the work brought a layered quality to all of it that was unique.  Without the seriality of each installment unwinding five days a week, I don't think it would have built up to such an extraordinary edifice (if that's the right metaphor).

From his appearance here at Harvard a couple of years ago, I would say that David is a very confident extemporaneous public speaker.  But there's so much going on in his head that he does wander from point to point and it doesn't always necessarily tie up into the neat little package one might expect in this modern world of the soundbyte.

Interesting.  I thought there was a London session with full orchestra for Jekyll and Hyde and these were the versions of the cues used in hoDS and, subsequently, in several of DC's early 1970s telefilms.

As mentioned elsewhere here, there was pamphleteering and harassment from certain "religious" groups against DS back in the 1960s.  It just wasn't given the kind of press it would be given today.  Back then, the media took the line that anyone in those churches was a kook and nobody cared.

Supposedly, Dr Joyce Brothers went on a talk show and claimed that DS promoted "alienation," whatever the hell THAT means.

It was quite a decade...

They did have some very cool photos on, or sometimes inside, the covers.

In just how many stories was "Inna-gadda-da-vida" used as an evil Satanic incantation??? Oh dear, the poor pastor in the thread above would flee shrieking in horror... could it be ... SATAN?

If your connection is fast enough to allow you to watch Youtube, that allows you to watch the DS Minisodes.  The last time I checked they were well into 1897.  I think all of 1967, 1795, and 1968 is there.  Each ep is pared down to 9 minutes or so but it does help you get your fix when you really need it.

Best wishes,

If you keep checking Amazon Vendor for your target volumes, you can often get them around $25 apiece including postage.  I'm talking about NEW sets here, not USED.  But you have to check.  When I was shopping for them actively I just checked once a month or so.

Very cute.  I could have done without the nonstop musical track which sometimes drowned out Depp's delivery.  Who mixes this stuff?

In the 1930s this type of agitated scoring became known as ... wait for it ... Mickey Mousing.

I take it Depp is currently filming this one?  It would seem highly dubious that the 2011 release date for Depp Shadows is going to happen...

The panel was focused on the Gold Key reissue, and that's supposed to be big news?

Golly.  We live in a strange world.

Perhaps sample pages of the "art" were shown and those attending quickly decided they needed to find another way of spending their valuable time at a very crowded, packed convention with some pretty major high-profile presentations on tap....

Ugh!  Witchcraft and Satanism are NOT the same thing!  The I Ching comes from ancient China and was already over a thousand years old at the time of Christ's birth.  It has zero to do with the Christian religion or its putative opponents.

The Twilight series is thinly veiled propaganda for the author's hardcore Mormon moralism.

Will these religious fanatics EVER have a close encounter with the real world???

Don't ask me.  Just reporting the story here.  I don't personally listen to this kind of music.

I did think it was very cute that my buddy heard it in a store and thought of me.
