Oh boy, Uncle Roger.  I'm just trying to imagine Parker's face during that conversation!  I think I was present at one fan q & a where someone asked her about NIGHT STALKER and she just said that she didn't get along with McGavin.

That's a really good episode.  Nina Foch is in it as well.

Thanks for the responses. I guess my friend isn't going to be watching any more DS online.

Hi folks, Last weekend, I had to telephone a friend who recently retired, and he surprised me by telling me he started watching DS on Youtube. He got up to around episode 70 and I think either the episodes switched to for-pay or there was one episode that he couldn't access--I couldn't really understand what he was telling me about it.

This made me wonder whether DS is on HuluPlus, Netflicks or other web content services currently.  Does anyone have current info?

It's hard to google this kind of thing because there are so many sites around with outdated information--and just so many DS websites, period.

Best, G.

Those are awesome captures, MB.  I have not seen the episode so it was fun to see these.

Maybe the new disc has been put on hold for a Halloween release?  Let's hope we hear something eventually.

I appreciate what folks here have shared about what was said, or at least scheduled, regarding the new release last year.

I agree, MB.  I'm wondering if there is going to be any publicity around the new DVD release or if it will just appear on various online shopping outlets at some point.  I seem to recall really minimal advance pub for some of the recent issues.

Gawd.  Well, I keep telling you that my short term memory is in tatters... now you have documented proof.

That was a delicious photo of Jason you unearthed for that ad.  Fabulous work!

IMDB says Joe was played by Jason Shaw, a model who had a tempestuous romance with Paris Hilton and for a time, a recurrent role on CHARMED.

Looks as if his acting career ceased around 2009-2010.

I need to look up who played Joe... he really was quite the sex bomb.

Thanks for taking the time to make these, MB!

This article was originally posted last year on Wallace McBride's DS blog, but I don't recall having seen it.  It was reposted earlier this week on a DS Facebook page that's on my roster:

http://www.collinsporthistoricalsociety.com/2016/04/who-killed-dark-shadows.html

Interesting that the author found an interview with Jay Duffy where the latter took credit for axing our show.  That was new to me, though doubtless others are long familiar with this material.

Credit or no, it's been my personal belief for many years now that Dan Curtis took the initiative to get the show off the air.  A number of the lead actors also wanted to move on.  Curtis wanted to move into directing movies and, as we know, he was extremely possessive about DS.  "If I can't have you, nobody can!"  He did designate Lela Swift as Producer during the final months, and apparently she also took over his unofficial role as story consultant if not actually dictating how the plot went (I am not sure how this all played out--it was stated in one of the fan newsletters towards the end that Lela came up with the idea of the big reveal at the end of 1840 where Barnabas made a certain controversial declaration regarding another major character).

Reminds me of the 3rd Barnabas episode where he muses to Vicki about the history of the Old House, at some point breaks into macabre, bitter laughter, then gets ahold of himself and comments to her:  "Nothing that happened here was ever funny."

Alas, the same cannot be said of the Burton/Depp thing... well, a lot of it, at least, was INTENDED to be a larf riot...

As a kind of footnote, I was interested last night to see that Joe Certa worked on a title called Tomb of Terror for Harvey Comics in the early 1950s:

http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=21050

The above site is an incredible repository of comics from all eras.  I've visited it intermittently to catch up with the horror comics of the early 1950s.  My favorite thus far is a groovy little book called Chamber of Chills.  I'd never heard of any of these.

After reading a couple of issues of Tomb of Terror, I looked at still another title, (True Stories of) Black Magic (you search it under the short title, Black Magic).  That one features some really early work by the legendary Jack Kirby.

My very fleeting impression from Tomb of Terror is that Joe Certa did work of fairly decent quality back then. I do not know what had happened to him by the time he worked on the Gold Key DS stuff.  His work for that was at such a crude, ugly level.  I'm sure there are websites and no doubt, a Wikipedia entry which might explain what was going on.

It may be that neither he nor his editor cared so he just churned out the lowest grade of work for these.  As Gerard said, we still bought the books though I gave up on it after issue 15 or thereabouts, I think.  I honestly can't recall why I stopped reading.  One reason I do remember was that it got really difficult to find the book. I was surprised to learn years ago that so many issues had been published.  I think I just stopped seeing it at the local newsstand at some point.
