What a fantastic thread.  I don't know what's making me laugh more right now--Lydia's delicate sarcasm about Barn's unending concern for Willie's welfare (lol!) or IluvBarnabas' image of the "courtly" cousin from England as a party animal trashing the OH!

This was a great idea!  My hat's off (and stays off) to Lydia!

What unfortunate news.

That series seems to be under some weird sort of curse!  And now I sound like Mrs. Johnson talking to Nicholas Blair...

I love Grayson's "entrance" in episode 675 (on today's slideshow).  The shots I'm thinking of aren't among the captures in the slides, but as I recall the episode, we see Julia's hand holding a cigarette, a shot of her coat, and then a close-up of the Doctor herself looking even more world-weary and "over it all" than usual.  FABULOUS.

Grayson Hall is my religion--I admit it!

I wonder whose car Willie commandeered in this episode?  I am pretty sure it was made clear in previous shows that Willie did not have his own wheels...

There's something so terribly haunting about those shots of Karlen at the bedroom window, his face a mask of tortured despair, telling Barnabas from afar "I hear ya."

Although today is *officially* Cheap Insufferable Pig (in Lusciously Tight Trousers) Day, after viewing the day's slideshow I also feel moved to declare it "We Love Julia... let us count the ways" day!

We were graced with a truly wonderful snapshot of Julia and Barnabas together that beautifully expresses their relationship with one another (from today's 1969 episode) *and* an almost as fabulous portrait of Julia and Quentin from the Leviathan period!

Definitely a red-letter day for Julia-shippers!

cheers, G.

Forgive me for pouting--we see Briscoe in the bathrobe, but not showing off that luscious chest of his.  Sigh.

I'll just have to take Prof. Stokes' advice to Tony Peterson and "dream my troubles away."  LOL!

Brilliant acting by John Karlen in this episode.  Makes me wonder whether they ever hand out honorary Daytime Emmies for past service!

The work of Karlen and, in other shows, Jonathan Frid, does a lot to make the original Barnabas Collins storyline one of the most unpleasantly chilling bits of drama in the annals of television--daytime OR primetime.  Just my not-so-humble opinion.

Wow, I've lived in Boston for 13 years and never been to Durgin Park!

My sister made Indian Pudding once back in the Seventies and it did indeed take 3 hours.

I had the feeling this was going to turn out to have been a Malcolm Marmorstein show.  I really loved his writing for DS.  He got a bum rap in an interview Sam Hall did that was widely printed in an early DS themed publication.

The real question is whether Mrs J used to serve Whip 'n' Chill as the dessert nearly every weeknight at Collinwood.

Oh boy, I am really pushing those memory banks here...

Great episode!  I remember the first time I saw it in '76 being enthralled by the wealth of detail Barnabas rolls out about the building of the Old House.  Vicki continues to be sharp on the ball here, too.  I know there's an episode in one of these early ones where Barnabas actually delivers a veiled threat to her.  There's a "Nancy Drew" element to Vicki, continued from the Matthew and Laura storylines, that I wish they had kept.

Isn't this the show where Roger makes the remark about bringing back a recipe for Indian pudding for Mrs J?  And he makes some smart remark about how hopeless her cooking is.  I love little details like this that add some color to the proceedings.

Anyone remember who wrote this show?

The DS producers seem to have decided decapitation was upping the ante, since Vicki's punishment in 1796 was the threat of being hung as a witch, while Quentin in 1840 faced public decapitation, something I'm quite sure has NEVER been practiced in US law enforcement but, what the hey.

I have read some descriptions of Tudor era public decapitations and it could be a grisly, prolonged death just as much as hanging was.  There was a reason why Anne Boleyn requested a swordsman from France to be her executioner--a request that Henry honored.

I first saw these shows back in early '76 when they were syndicated locally on a Philly UHF channel.  I remember being quite impatient with shows such as 213 at the time.

It wasn't until a few years ago that I was able to tape the last Sci Fi broadcast of 1967 in sequence and see all (or most of) the Laura Collins storyline and Jason's introduction, and see how things led up to Barnabas' arrival.  I appreciated episode 213 and its sequelae with a much more keen enthusiasm once I had the chance to view them in context.

cheers, G.

My roommate recently taped an episode of The Young & the Restless because former Beastmaster star Daniel Goddard had a bit role as a hustler in a bar.  I watched Goddard's scenes and after we had finished the tape suggested that the soap should be re-titled The Hung and the Listless.

I do have to say that the use of hairproducts and cosmetics, on both the female and the male principals, was impressive...
