Peter Bradford and/or Jeff Clark, hands down.

It's way way WAY down the list for anyone else anywhere near as annoying.  Maybe Hallie and Carrie Stokes?

I'm not into polls enough to run a poll here on Best Bitch of Collinwood, but I'd say that PT Roger would be hard to defeat for the title!  That's probably why I enjoy the character so much since I find the vicious humor amusing.  I know this sort of thing is not to everyone's taste but I agree with you MB--as far as I am concerned, Roger IS very funny!  There's a kind of twisted pathos to the character as well ... he may be a VERY sick puppy, but I find myself unable to look away when he's onscreen.  And Edmonds creates the character with such brilliant subtlety.

That's a great shot from that sequence, too.  Congratulations, MB!

Current Talk '06 I / Re: p.t.angelique.a witch...or just a bitch?
« on: June 19, 2006, 04:57:40 PM »
Just off the top of my head--PT Angelique seems more like an amateur Witch (which, actually, was a lot more how the original Angelique seemed until the period when she created her bat-familiar)--someone who had read some books and decided to see whether the stuff worked or not; when it did, she continued, but her interest in Magick was strictly practical and related to whatever goal she had before her.  I think that Tim Stokes, her stepfather, had a much more serious grasp of the occult. incidentally, occultists, especially those who haven't had the benefit of a fully-structured training, often wind up becoming alcoholics or drug addicts because they need something to numb them out from all the energies flooding their systems.

In 1795, Angelique seemed a lot more like a village hedge witch initially.  I think there was dialogue that indicated that her initial spell on Barnabas was her first attempt at operative Magick.  Subsequently, they made her more supernatural, and had her receiving magic powers as a result of signing her soul to Satan, as was the belief most extensively documented in the Malleus Maleficarum, the infamous "Hammer of Witches."  I prefered it when the character got her powers from her own knowledge of herbs and energies, not to mention her own formidable personal moxie!

A solo (or "pure")  piano version of the entire composition, "Ode to Angelique," is included on the fourth (I think) of the series of CDs of Dark Shadows soundtrack cues that were, once upon a time, distributed by MPI.  The CDs were compiled from Robert Cobert's master tapes.  The quality is excellent and I highly recommend them if, like me, you've always thought the music was one of your favorite aspects of the show.

Now WHEN are we going to see Laurie Johnson's music for the Diana Rigg seasons of The Avengers released on CD???

cheers, G.

Just to interject my pet bete-noire about the stories set in "the PAWSSST" (I do adore how Joan pronounced that word)--namely, that a family with the standing of the Collins' in the 1790s, 1840s and 1890s would have had a full staff of servants (in the 1790s and 1840s, this would have been very necessary due to all the hard physical labor necessary to perform simple tasks of household maintenance).  Instead, we get Riggs and Stokes holding down the fort in 1795, and poor Beth (whom Judith keeps trying to fire) the only servant seen onscreen in 1897.  I can't remember any servants in 1840 apart from Hortense the Hapless.

The only time the house seemed to be properly staffed was in the 1940s, judging from the list of people Liz fired in '49.

Excellent news regarding an encore performance for the slideshows!  Apart from everything else, seeing the early Julia snaps again will add zest to my summer!

In my note on this thread, I inexplicably failed to mention the fabulous John Karlen.  It goes without saying that I adore him, and I think watching him do his thing with his various characters is a GAS!  My favorite is the original 1967 Willie Loomis.  His characterization of the much different Parallel Time counterpart, Will, was truly fascinating.

Just curious--as of June 27th, if memory serves, you'll be back to the starting point; are you planning on displaying all the slide shows again over the next coming year to continue the celebration?

I'm sure I'm not the only Board member who would enjoy the opportunity to see these again.

It cuts across gender for me.  In general, I'm in the girls club, in that when Grayson, or Joan, or Clarice, or Nancy are on screen, they rivet my attention.  But the same goes for Thayer, Louis (I've become a HUGE fan of 1966 Roger), Humbert (especially Nicholas--I find Charles Dawson a crashing bore by and large), and, to a degree, Frid and Selby.  I tend to watch Briscoe, Crothers and any other male SYT onscreen more as a sex object but every once in awhile one of the boys will get some juicy bit of business (or take his shirt off--LOL!  I think DS must have been the very first soap that had its male ingenues shedding their shirts.  A pioneer in beefcake, too!)  I do wish Buzz had become a regular.  I can see Julia hiring Buzz to ferry her between Wyndcliffe, the Old House, and Points West.  "Oh, Buzz, Buzz, you mad, incorrigible boy, Buzz!" "Aw, Doc, shucks!  If ya feel it, SIT IT!"  I would crawl across broken glass...

And then, of course, in a class all his own comes Craig Slocum!! Isn't he divine?  *sigh*

Cheers, G.

She has a few good moments in the show--notably at the beginning when she appears in a white lab coat!  By and large, though, it's a wasted opportunity.  Much, much better was her guest appearance on The Man from UNCLE.

She is actually on camera A LOT on The Girl from UNCLE, though, so it's a must for cultists of the Divine One.

Is The American Life Channel running both The Man and The Girl from UNCLE?  I wonder when, if ever, we will see a DVD release of those shows?

Claude, honey, you crack me up!

I didn't know that about Warners, but it seems fairly typical of the firm.

Everwood??? Good golly,what's up with THAT?

I utterly fail to understand the bizarre permutations of 21st century pop culture.

Too bad the people who wanted to request the release of the DS pilot weren't able to make their voices heard.

I'd buy it if Grayson's Playtex commercial were included among the extras. But of course, it won't be.

Just let you all know how demented I REALLY am where the Divine One is concerned...

Those are both beautiful shots.  I adore Thayer's work as both our Professor Stokes and "mad scientist/occultist" Tim Stokes.

Thanks for sharing them!
