Jumping ahead, Dr. Hoffman figures out that Quentin Collins is a werewolf, and as Julia and Barnabas become cohorts at solving the mysteries of Collinwood, they travel to Parallel Time, where familiar faces act out a version of Rebecca (with Grayson Hall excelling in the Mrs. Danvers role), and to the future where Collinwood lies in ruins, and Caroline and Quentin have gone insane. A very young Kate Jackson appears as the mysterious ghost Daphne, another governess with a secret, enlivening the show's later years.
Through all, we see the famous Collinwood set, the medieval staircase that frames so much of the action, and you can watch each numbered episode with informative introductions by Kathryn Leigh Scott, who played Maggie Evans through all her perils in past, present, future and parallel time.Read more ›
For in DARK SHADOWS, as the fans know, the story and its characters frequently leapt backwards, forwards and even sideways in time, creating a seemingly never-ending multitude of dramatic possibilities. This collection spotlights episodes from many of the show's eras (including the original leap back to 1795); and most of the popular characters, including Barnabas, Dr Julia Hoffman, Quentin, Maggie/Josette, Angelique, Reverend Trask, Daphne Harridge and Victoria Winters.
#212 - After having been freed from his chained coffin, Barnabas (Jonathan Frid) returns to Collinwood where he finds the Old House in ruins and swears his plan of redemption to the portrait of Josette.
#365 - The Collins family resolve to hold a séance in a bid to contact the ghost of little Sarah Collins (Sharon Smyth), Barnabas' younger sister, who has already appeared to Maggie (Kathryn Leigh Scott) and David (David Henesy). The séance comes to its shocking conclusion when Victoria (Alexandra Moltke) disappears only to somehow find herself swept back in time to 1795.
#371 - In 1795-era Collinwood, Barnabas is almost killed by vengeful former lover and witch Angelique (Lara Parker), when she casts a spell to choke Barnabas with an invisible handkerchief.Read more ›
This reasonably priced single-disc DVD will feature 9 episodes with brand new introductions.
However, on April 12th if your a major fan of "Dark Shadows" and of classic vintage soaps like me look for "Dark Shadows-The Complete Collection" that will feature every single episode of the series along with a slew of bonus features. Personally, I am in Heaven and cannot wait for that set!

This series was made from 1966 to 1971, and Night was made in 1971. People had different styles then as opposed to know. I don't think my friend Lara would appreciate what you say.
