Dark Shadows is the best thing.

If you win, you get a curse AND a skeleton?

This is the third time this week I've heard someone or something mention Dark Shadows. Something tells me I should really look into this show.
Aelric
Oh god, don't make that mistake, I beg you.

Squeamish
Is it... is it that bad?

I remember soft-spoken visitors arriving and departing quite often, and never enough Barnabas Collins.

Dark Shadows is basically "The Days of Our Lives" with shit-tons of fog machines and occasional vampires.

I remember watching this on the Sci-Fi channel and always wondering where the fucking vampires were.

Five for the ridiculousness of the commercial.

Aelric
specifically it's 'days of our lives' in the 70's with all the action and intrigue sucked out. Even when the vampires showed up, they just sort of silently mugged the camera and made damsels faint. And they could afford exactly one fucking set, so this whole series takes place in pretty much one unchanging room that looks like your grandmothers living room.

It's like old Dr. Who. If you're in the right mood when you first watch it, you'll get hooked. If you go into it based off of everyone's hype, you're going to think everyone that recommended it is an asshole.

Squeamish
You know, all your warnings have done is ensured that I will watch at least one episode before I go to sleep tonight.

Curse you, curse you for what you have caused me to do.

Meerkat
No, they are idiots. Dark Shadows is fucking awesome.

Come for the boom mic shadows, stay for the boom mic whacking people in the head, stay even longer for the Flora McDonald lookalike woman going TSK TSK TSK while fluttering her eyelashes and mugging shamelessly for the camera.

Seriously, watch this show. Nothing ever happens but it's engrossing and occasionally rewind five times while pissing yourself funny.

Meerkat
Plus Roger is fucking hilarious.

FABIO
Apparently there were like 2 or 3 remakes of Dark Shadows.

They are all on Netflix instant.

StanleyPain
At least Dr Who has a storyline which is self-contained and resolves itself within a story and is usually not about who is in unrequited love with who. (at least, not until the rebooted series *RIM SHOT*) It might move slow and have tons of dialogue, but it's all to build atmosphere and plot and to tell an interesting sci-fi story. Dark Shadows didn't even involve anything supernatural until it had been on the air for almost a year...prior to that it was just a gothic romance show.

"YAY! I won the fangs!"
"OK, game's over, take the fangs out and put them away."
"*SCHLUP* OK."
"Make sure to put them back in the box for the next kids."
"*SPLORCH* OK."
Paracelsus
Ok, so I didn't dream this.
Billy the Poet
They had two naming options to convey the excitement of their vampire/horror themed board game. "DARK SHADOWS" or "Barnabas Collins, Attourney at Law" they went with the latter.
