Thanks for that link.  I've read reports about the "rot" or "decay" to which discs are heir several times over the past years.  The first articles that I read about this issue with CDs actually appeared in the late 1980s, as I recall.

Fans of DS are fortunate because of how long MPI has kept the series in print.  (Clearly, they aren't losing any money on the show, so their motives could hardly be altruistic, but still, I think we're lucky they're so committed to it.)  A couple weeks ago I had lunch with a friend who's a diehard media collector and he spoke about the rate at which CDs, DVDs and related media (such as VHS) go in and out of print.  It's pretty shocking.

Oh yeah. Did you ever see The Cat Creature?  It was an early 70s TV movie (on "ABC Movie of the Week") directed by Curtis Harrington with juicy roles for Gale Sondergaard and John Carradine, plus a tarot card scene that looked just like a salute to DS.

That, and "The Two Deaths of Sean Doolittle" (with supporting roles for Grayson Hall and Diana Davila) are at the top of my want lists.

Thanks for posting this, MB.

I wonder whether plans are still afoot to have the "Horror Channel" debut this coming Halloween?  I recall posts about this last October or November.

It's rather alarming when a publicity release describes films as pathetic as those named as "top tier" programming.

The horror movie, as such, is basically dead, isn't it?  The trailers for Van Helsing which is the 2000's answer to House of Frankenstein (and other "monster omnibus" 40s Universal classics) looks more like a kung fu slice and dice out of Hong Kong.

ah well...

Current Talk '21 I / Re:WB ORDERS FILMING OF NEW DS PILOT
« on: May 03, 2004, 04:01:46 PM »
In the Innovation comic books based upon the 1991 remake, they showed what Barnabas looked like after having been trapped in a coffin with no blood supply for 172 years.

I have to wonder whether one of these guys is meant to be Barnabas as Willie first lays eyes upon him when he cracks open the chained coffin.

I'd also love for Karlen to have been given a part in the new series.

Thanks to Ben Martin for continuing to delight us with his photographic panache, and to Stuart for sharing this on his site.

Gorgeous work on the photos, MB!

I especially cherish Julia with the teacup (one of my favorite moments) and the gorgeous shot of Stokes in between the two letterboards.

Well, I missed it--this week has been a real grind.

I bet Marsters looks mega cute with his new look, though.

I'd heard in some column or other several months ago that Marsters had been signed for one of the leads in the US remake of an Italian gay mobster film that was going to begin lensing this Fall.  Perhaps that was an unsubstantiated rumor, since I did not see it on his IMDB page when I checked a few days ago.

Current Talk '04 I / Re:Christopher Pennock
« on: April 28, 2004, 09:24:33 PM »
As is no secret, my favorites are Grayson and Thayer.  I agree that Nancy was excellent, and often brilliant.  Pennock got better as the show went on.  I thought his performance as wheelchair-bound Gabriel Collins contained many of his finest moments on the series. Gabriel was just so deliciously devious.

« on: April 28, 2004, 09:15:16 PM »
This whole thread just illustrates why television today is not just trashy or tasteless, it's above all a crashing bore.

And it illustrates why, discussing people I'd had in mind for the casting of Julia in The New WB DS, I commented to my roommate last night:  "Of course, Helen Shaver would have been magnificent.  And she would have been way too good for what the WB are going to produce here."

Although he's a diehard fan of a currently airing WB series, he agreed with me.

Current Talk '04 I / Erica Fitz Adulation Thread
« on: April 27, 2004, 10:41:33 PM »
Wow, FINALLY some excitement here as the enticing and seductive Erica Fitz makes her bow on today's Montage.

I heard that K-Tel records was finally going to release Erica's elusive album of Blossom Dearie covers, recorded in a Greenwich Village studio in 1969.  The Work Tapes, long believed lost, finally came to light in a shoebox at a tag sale in New Haven, CT late last Summer.

It does warm my heart to see the appearance of The Most EEEE-Vil Woman of the 18th Century.

I know this is REALLY OT, but has anyone spotted a link in the vast world of Angel websites that has spoilers for the final relay of episodes?

Adam Baldwin, who's a favorite of mine, is supposed to be appearing in some of them.  I taped the one that introduced him.  He wore an ugly suit and had less than 5 minutes of screen time.

I'd like to know whether his remaining appearances are going to be similar "cameo" turns, or whether he's actually going to have something to DO (hopefully getting him out of that suit!)

Baldwin played Jayne Cobb, the security hunk, on Joss Whedon's short lived series Firefly, which is well on its way to becoming a classic "cult" series even though it departed the airwaves less than 2 years ago.

Wow, that's really fascinating, MB!  I don't think I've ever seen that article before.

would be interesting to see the whole thing...

it's kind of funny though to think that Joshua's "rewriting" of history extended to putting his wife's death 30 plus years into the future!

Wow, what GORGEOUS snapshots of Julia here.  Only Grayson could look that elegant in a lab coat.

Wonderful work from Nancy, too, in these shows.

Maybe this is too extreme, but I tend to think that DS became a big success in spite of DC's interference... um, I mean, INPUT.

we all have our own opinions...

Wallace's memory may be hazy, but he is correct that the show started getting really supernatural around week 10.  I forget the episode # but there is a scene where we see a book opening by itself in the drawing room.  The book is a Collins family history and it opens to a picture of Josette, I believe.  Around this time there is also an episode where there is a power failure and somebody (I think Vicki) sees a dark figure moving about in the foyer.

The episode where we see Josette's ghost at the Old House descend from her portrait and dance around the portico was episode 70, I think, which puts it about week 14.  Not too bad for "hazy" memories from Mr. Wallace.
