Plus, new fans will emerge, which inevitably leads to talk of another DS Festival.......
I loved this Soap Opera when I was a kid, and would rush home
everyday from school to catch it. I am saving up to get the series on disc.
My wife had a closer connection. We live in Johnathan Frids home town of Hamilton. (The building where our newspaper has offices is on Frid Street). When she was a highschool secretary, the head secretary was Marian Frid, Johnathan’s sister (or perhaps cousin).
She was quite the character. She used to sit at her desk, open a drawer and bend down behind it to make a phone call. When she retired, they found several phone numbers taped inside of the drawer. They were all “dial a prayer”.
DECADES is promoting the fact that the show will continue past where it usually ends in syndication with the killing of Dr. Woodard. Starting Monday, April 29th, DARK SHADOWS will run further episodes.
Again, I know it's easily available on Amazon and such, but it's nice to have it airing on a national network.
I just watched MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS and was immediately taken with the old ABC promos. They've seen better days, but I got a bit of a chill when this image flashed at the end:
I don't know if it's been mentioned elsewhere, but the remake NBC series is now on Amazon Prime - and it's in its original 4:3 aspect ratio, not the fake widescreen that was issued on DVD.
Looks like they might be using the same masters that MPI used for their VHS range (since episodes 2/3 are in their separate 1-hour syndication versions, rather than combined into a 2-hour format as per the NBC broadcast and DVD).
Sadly, Denise Nickerson (Amy Jennings / Norah Collins) passed away at the age of 62 on July 10, 2019. I always thought she was one of the best actors on the show.
