I started buying the sets at this disc since it marks the beginning of the tremendous 1897 storyline. This set alone contains vamparism, mind control, zombies, I-Ching, Time Travel, teleportation, gypsies, soul transference, spiritual possesion, ghosts, hauntings, murder, insanity, resurection, immortals, witch hunts, exorcism, demon summoning, voodoo and too many other things to remember.

This allows non fans to jump in at the switch of major storylines, getting to know the history of the family first hand, which transitions well back into the main time line.

A great set full of cool occult victoriana from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, except the last few episodes July 27, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After the extremely disappointing set 12, which centered almost completely around the two intolerable children, set 13 is a real breath of fresh air. For the most part, it reinvigorates my love for the show. It takes a few episodes, but by about the middle of the first disk Barnabas uses the I-Ching wands to travel back in time to 1897. The scene where Professor Stokes performs the dark ritual to enable Barnabas to do this is fabulous - this is the kind of stuff I watch the show for. Pure Gothic suspense.

Once in the past, all the actors play different parts. Barnabas first meets Sandor the gypsy (formerly Professor Stokes), and another gypsy named Magda (formerly Juliet Hoffman). They live at the old house. The reason they're there is the matriarch of the Collins family employs Magda to tell the future. This matriarch is now on her death bed, and the Collins family members are all anxious to see how the will is split up. Besides Edward and Judith (formerly Roger and Elizabeth Collins), there's also Quentin - we saw a lot of him in DVD set 12, but now we finally get to hear him speak in his New England accent. Quentin is a real good-for-nothing, returned from England just in time to try to ingratiate himself with grand-mama before she dies, and he's incredibly full of himself. However, Selby's marvelous acting leaves the character rather sympathetic and not all together unlikable.

Once the will is sorted out, the plot lines start coming fast and furious. Governess Rachel Drummond (formerly Maggie Evans) notices lights on in the tower room and investigates. We eventually discover the secret - good stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Back Into The Past June 29, 2004
Barnabus finds the I-Ching Wands which he uses to go back into the past where he manages to get out of the coffin which imprisoned him the first time. He then uses Magda and her husband as slaves, and changes history so the Quentin does not get killed. Count Petoffi enters the picture and is indirectly responsible for making Quentin Immortal. Dirk gets used as a scape goat and turned into a vampire. Eventually Julia will also come into the past after Angelique also comes into the past. This section of the past is filled with new action and many events that keep the person interested. Oh yes, remember to keep an eye out for The second reverend Trask who is a hypocrite that discovers Barnabus' secret and kills himself in the end. Josette Dupris also comes back in a recarnation. Any one who liked Dark Shadows will certainly enjoy this chain of events and the one that will be released in September

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Blast From the Past September 22, 2005
I love Dark Shadows! I have fond memories from when I was a little boy and my brother and sister and I would rush home from school to a friends house to watch Dark Shadows. Because my folks thought it was too disturbing for us to watch, we couldn't watch at our house! Collection 13 picks right up in the sequence and doesn't miss a beat. With gothic intrigue, beautiful sets and a cast of characters who are simply captivating, Dark Shadows 13 doesn't disappoint. The plotline keeps me on the edge of my seat, and I find that I have to pace myself to keep from watching all in a single seating, which could easily be done. I must admit to getting goose bumps while watching some of the episodes. I now have to watch them when my kids go to sleep, because it is too disturbing for them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Shadows is as good as ever October 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recently ordered and watched one of the Dark Shadows DVD's. It was amazing how I got right into the story and remember the characters as if I watched this show yesterday instead of forty years ago. The visual quality is good and there are no commercials. I started with No. 13 just to see Quentin. Really fun watching a great soap from the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Review of Dark Shadows DVD Collection 13 July 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Because I am not a patient person I do not like to wait for things to arrive in the mail. Even so, I usually use the free shipping that Amazon offers on orders that are over $25.00. I did that on this order.

I watched Dark Shadows when it originally aired back in the 1960's. I was in grade school then and the other kids told me about it. Barnabus Collins was already a part of the show when I started watching it. Many years later I started to rent the videos from Blockbuster and then I began to buy them from Amazon. The nice thing about buying these collections is that I can watch all of the episodes in order! This collection is as good as I expected it to be based upon the other collections that I have bought so far.

The master tapes for several episodes have some errors in them and the video producers have chosen to leave them in the DVD's in order to avoid cutting out any content. I am not bothered by that but some perfectionists may be. You will notice things like the sound booms in the scenes, extra people who are not supposed to be in the scenes, vampires who are still seen in mirors, and some of the actors flubbing their lines. This occurs throught the series because of the live taping that was done in the 1960's and 1970's. Again, I am not bothered by any of this and find it quite comical.
