Dark Shadows (ooh-ooh-OOOOOOOOH!)

Uncle Dennis (Musette’s uncle, not mine), introduced us to Dark Shadows, and we’ve been watching the 1991 miniseries revival. (Shoulder pads! Miami Vice five o’clock shadows! Really tan vampires!) I’ve not been much for the gothic genre, but I am totally hooked. It’s great storytelling.

OMG. I just looked up the miniseries on Wikipedia, to get the date, and it was CANCELED because it got preempted all the time during the Gulf War, and viewers lost interest. And it ends on a cliffhanger!

I watched one of the episodes of the original 60s-70s version, but that was a soap opera and moved soooo slowly. I don’t know if I can do it.

Maybe there’s a book.
