5.0 out of 5 stars It Will Get Better February 27, 2004
Format:DVD
This latest Collection 11 of the daytime gothic supernatural TV masterpiece, Dark Shadows, brings a very welcome turning point in the plot of the series, along with some unwelcome cast changes.
The truly dreadful storyline involving Adam (similar to Frankenstein's creature) who was played by Robert Rodan is thankfully almost over. This story almost sank Dark Shadows when it first aired about 40 years ago, causing viewers to tune out in droves, and I fear that it may have done the same to many of those viewing the series for the first time via DVD. But please rest assured, we HAVE hit rock bottom. The plot only gets better and better as Dark Shadows embarks on some of its best storytelling and acting of the entire series.
The 40 episodes collected here not only pretty much close the aforementioned awful story arc, but also restores everyone's favorite reluctant 175-year-old vampire, Barnabas Collins (played to perfection by Jonathan Frid), to his former glory. It also introduces the mysterious Quentin Collins (portrayed by David Selby) in a Turn-of-the-Screw type plot that is facinating as well as frightening. Child actors David Henesy, who played David Collins, and Denise Nickerson, who played Amy Jennings, are terrific and spooky as the children controlled by Quentin's malevolent spirit.
Sadly, this set also marks the departure of Alexandra Moltke who portrayed Collinwood governess Victoria Winters and whose character had been the lynchpin of the series. Moltke's departure left a permanent void in the show. It was her voice viewers first heard when the show debuted in 1966. In the first episode, Moltke, as the innocent but compelling governess, was traveling by train to Collinsport, Maine. The scene opens with a now historic audio prelude that began,"My name is Victoria Winters.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Plot Keeps You Glued to Your Screen July 3, 2004
Format:DVD
This DVD continues the story of Angelique as the vampire. In the previous DVD, Nicholas had put the curse on Angelique because she disobeyed him. After a series of events, Angelique was allowed to bite Barnabas. This is the storyline that is on the Dark Shadows View Master from 1968. It is most enjoyable as the plot thickens around Nicholas and HIS plans conflicting with Angelique and HER plans. There are plenty of twists and turns that will keep you glued to your set.
Eventually the plot segues into a new story about Chris Jennings who comes to town looking for his little sister. When the moon is full, Chris transforms into "an animal that walks like a man."
When we first hear the growls coming from the animal from behind a door, our interest grows even more. As we watch, we wonder what is this curious sound coming from inside the room?
As this DVD shows, the audience for Dark Shadows had plenty of reason to keep coming back in ever increasing numbers. The show continued to grow in popularity even to the extent of the beginnings of Dark Shadows merchandising. The first bublegum cards, books, posters, and other items got introduced at this time. Dark Shadows was a hot property on ABC, and 1968 was one of its best years ever. In terms of ratings, only the storyline to follow in 1969 was hotter.
If you like Dark Shadows, you'll want to continue watching to see how the story from the last DVD set plays out. We don't like him, but what becomes of the violent and heartbroken Adam? Where does Angelique end up? Does she make Barnabas a vampire again, or does he stay as her slave? Can Julia and Willie rescue Barnabas? Does Nicholas succeed in creating a whole race of beings like Adam and Eve? And what does he do with Maggie Evans? What about Maggie and Joe?

5.0 out of 5 stars Collection 11 onward is where I start collecting... December 22, 2006
By D.J.
Format:DVD
Having seen all the episodes and story-arcs of "Dark Shadows" this is the set I started with until one day I buy the final one (Collection 26), and if you're not really a hardcore fan than you might consider starting off here as well because this is where the supernatural elements of "Dark Shadows" really kick in.

"Collection 11" is where we're first introduced to Quentin Collins whom in this story-arc is an evil ghost, and Barnabas' main adversary. Not to spoil future episodes, but the character of Quentin evolves a lot through later episodes to be nearly as indispensable a character as Barnabas Collins.

5.0 out of 5 stars dark shadows 11 April 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even though there are blips and near misses in lines, this is Dark Shadows in the immediate stage past one in room reading of the lines. To be a part of the raw filming is a pleasure. The same old familar faces, will make you float back in time to the first time you experienced Dark Shadows. This is for the true fan. Nothing is dissappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any minor DVD skip glitches? October 28, 2009
By Chloe
Format:DVD
Barnabas is amazing & I adore Jonathan Frid no end. Much of the series success is attributed to him. He's my favorite.

Was curious if anyone knew if on some of the DVDs, a scene skips a few lines, like when Sherrif Patterson questions Julia & Mrs. Johnson about Barnabas' attack. It's happened occasionally over some of the dvds, so I'm wondering if this is simply one of the dvd glitches by MPI.

the scene I'm referring to is on the second episode of collection 11. As I said, not too often, but every now & then, a few lines by the characters is skipped during a scene on the DVDs from MPI. Otherwise, they're spectacular & I love my DVD sets. Maybe Strange Paradise will be released' commercially here, someday, though it is certainly no match for Dark Shadows.
