    It was a sad day when they made the announcement about Dr. Guthrie. The man was putting himself in a lot of danger to help everybody. And being a para-psychologist is just a cool sounding job. Who ya gonna call? Doctor Guthrie!

    Radioman,The 'talk' you're going to hear is one of the most intense dialogues between the two of them. It's very well-written, and they play off of each other very well.

    ^^^ now THAT was a talk! I think I woofed down the whole bowl of popcorn before it ended.

    But you know... like Willie said, Jason is all bluffer. Barnabas...? not so much... not at all actually... poor Jason. He better hope it's in B's interest to keep him around. But I don't think it is.

    I do want to make a statement about something I said here some time ago. I spoke about a members comments on Jonathan Frid. I deleted the comments the next day. I guess I need to do more. I wish that member to forgive what I said. I hope he comes back and contributes to the thread. I have no right to tell other members how to speak or have fun.

    Well that is all and I hope to see you back here fellow Dark Shadows Fan. I also want to add that Radioman certainly keeps me looking for each of his posts when ever I check in on HTF.

    Hey Mark, I don't think it's me you're referring to because I don't recall any comments about J. Frid. I've always said how much I loved all the supernaturals, but that I had a special affection for the mortals, especially Carolyn, Maggie and Willie.

    Just finished watching episodes 460 & 461 - the end of the 1795 story.Fantastic scene between Joshua and Barnabas.I already knew how the actual return would happen, but wasn't sure about the reactions.Biggest problem, remembering the storyline and relationships of the current day characters (after all these months away)

    And wait until you get to the Quentin years--lots of complicated storylines running all at the same time!

    This is my third (or maybe fourth) viewing. However, it is my first start to finish.Born in '61, so watched original broadcasts, starting in mid-run.Watched syndicated versions (which I don't think we're complete run)Didn't get the SciFi channel until somewhere in mid-run of their first go-round. But since they did two complete runs watched middle to end followed by start to middle. Too much going on in life to complete second run then.

    267 (i think) had the new Burke's second appearance. He needs to turn up the swagger to a point a few steps below Jason and he'd have it. I hope the heck he will stop whispering, and not because I'm hard of hearing! You hear Burke when he's around!

    268 (i think) they reveal Liz's Birth date and even though I'm only a few years younger than the character, I get nothing but a mother vibe from her. ain't that weird? lol I'm like David's (and Carolyn's) big bro and Liz is the nurturing aunt!

    As much as I like to give Frid's memory HELL for botched...heavily struggled lines, etcetera. It's quite clear when serious drama was given to Frid...he ACED it. I can't find the Jason audio that you guys speak of...but I know exactly the exchange that you are talking about. I only saw the scene once...but that's all you need to see it...because the exchange between Frid and Patrick is so memorable.

    I love this show...because it's like nothing you can compare to anything else. Sure there's a great deal of fumble stumble humble and crumble in the show but that's part of it charm. Thank The Lord for Frid or we would STILL be listening to way too much parlor talk between Molteke, Barrett, Bennett and sometimes Leigh Scott and watching the show in B/W. :lol: .

    Oh yeah... I also thought Frid was amazing when he was talking to Vickie and Carolyn (I believe) on Widow's Hill about one of the widows. I did a lengthy story about what happened, I think he did that flawlessly. He had me hanging on each word.

    I don't want to look for audio from that exchange with B and J. I totally fear spoilers on the net.

    The wedding was more tense than expected. The edge of my seat needs to be lengthened for these things! lol Glad to know the truth about Liz.

    ^^ it took me a second, but I noticed No Joe! And Jason is hiding way in the back to a scaredy cat!

    All those warm smiles. It's just strange... I watched the interview with Carolyn talking about the camera never stopping, she was real funny. She said even if someone broke their neck she wasn't sure if it would stop rolling or not. In the background, during the interview, you could hear what sounded like a motorcycle roaring up... I was thinking Buzz was there to pick her up.

    I love that cast picture...especially the big smile on Mrs. Johnson. I don't think she EVER smiled in the actual show, although her character had some of the funniest lines.

    Paul,I think Mrs. Johnson smiled a couple of times, most notably when she was talking fondly about her former employer, Bill Malloy. But you're right in that it didn't seem to occur very often.
