The picture and sound are as good as they're going to get.
Tom E
The inexplicable magic is still there and I'm really enjoying re-watching the episodes I saw 40 years ago.

DARK SHADOWS has become a classic for being the first soap opera to revolve around supernatural horror, and to do so while keeping its characters believable and its situations plausible.

As this installment begins, DS's most famous character. the 175-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, is passing himself off as a cousin from England, while secretly holding waitress Maggie Evans prisoner. Maggie escapes, in a nearly catatonic state, with the help of a mysterious little girl named Sarah, who appears to her and several others. Maggie is sent to Windcliff, a sanitarium run by Dr. Julia Hoffman, who finds Maggie's case especially fascinating.

Back at Collinwood, Jason McGuire is blackmailing Elizabeth Stoddard into marrying him. In protest, Elizabeth's daughter Carolyn threatens to marry a hippie biker named Buzz. At the pivotal moment, Elizabeth reveals the secret she and Jason have been keeping between them. But there's a REAL secret Jason has been keeping from Elizabeth. Jason ultimately has a run-in with Barnabas.

Barnabas invites the family to a dinner party to celebrate his restoration of the Old House. His goal is to attract Victoria, but his plan backfires when the family decides to hold a seance.

Meanwhile, Dr. Hoffman comes to stay at Collinwood, posing as a historian, to investigate her private suspicions about Maggie's case. She discovers exactly what Barnabas is and confronts him -- which is where set 2 ends.

This installment continues to expand Barnabas's character beyond simple villain.

I'm going to review the content of Collection 2 instead of the series like the other reviewers here. It should be mentioned that the 8 weeks of episodes on collection 2 are a big improvement over collection 1 which was good, but a little slow at times. By these episodes, the writers seemed to have figured out what to do with Barnabas and a few old stale plot lines are tossed to the curb. I think that new fans who bought collection 1 but were on the fence about whether to check out collection 2 or not should go ahead and give it a try. I'm convinced the improved pacing of these episodes will make you a fan!

Barnabas Collins and the rest of the gang return for more on Dark Shadows DVD Collection 2! This Collection, which contains VHS Volumes 5-12 on 4 discs, is more of a transitional set. In these episodes, the storylines from Collection 1 come to a close and the new storylines begin. Right off the bat, we see the conclusion of the Barnabas kidnapping Maggie storyline, and then we focus on the impending wedding of blackmailer Jason McGuire and Elizabeth Collins Stoddard. Near the end of this Collection, we see the introduction of Dr. Julia Hoffman, who arrives at Collinwood to investigate Maggie's disappearance.
Also on these DVD's we get bonus interviews from Dan Curtis (Producer), Nancy Barrett (Carolyn Stoddard), Dennis Patrick (Jason McGuire), and Alexandra Moltke (Victoria Winters). Once again, the picture and sound qualities are in great shape. Also like the first Collection, these episodes are all in black and white. Looking forward to Collection 3, which will include color episodes!

Its said that Dark Shadows didn't really get rolling and gain its claim to immortality until Jonathan Frid entered in the second season... and that's where collection 1 starts. Amazingly, as you sit through Collection 1 and 2 you can REALLY feel momentum building. A downside of many DVD collections (and TV series) is that with time you get used to them and start to lose interest. True cult TV holds up over time, and even moreso, great TV sticks with you for years after the first time you saw it. Dark Shadows is often described as "short lived" for a soap opera (4 years) but when you consider the fact that the shows were on almost daily and unlike sitcoms and other shows the plots had to continue from episode to episode it is amazing. - - I literally sat through some of the disks in a day and when they ended my first thought wasn't what to do next - - turn off the TV and get a night of sleep, or continue to watch, watch, watch and watch and get MORE and MORE. - - 4 or 8 hours of any TV show will usually exhaust you. Not DARK SHADOWS... the characters are amazing, and at times the acting and dialogue is really edgey...again amazing, because its a soap opera, and also because its a GOTHIC HORROR soap. How can you combine the reality and human element of a soap with - - vampires and witches and do so in a way that both are packed with emotion and drama??? Apparently the entire cast, production team and writers of DARK SHADOWS knew how... and that's why the DVDs are worth having. Forget waiting for the reruns to come back on CABLE TV... odds are it'll be cancelled after about a year or they'll jump seasons for some stupid reason. Own it and resign yourself to fate. Reality is you will probably be losing a lot of sleep and late for a lot of appointments... This is CULT TV at its best ! !Read more ›
