This review is from: Dark Shadows: DVD Collection 20 (DVD)"1970 Parallel Time" began in the last set's final episode, and this collection quickly shifts the focus from Barnabas to the alternate universe's Quentin. Leads Jonathan Frid, Grayson Hall, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Joan Bennett, Nancy Barrett, John Karlen, and Louis Edmonds were all written out for many of the episodes in this collection so that the actors could film the movie HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS.
The story then deals mainly with David Selby, Lara Parker, and Christopher Pennock during the shooting of the movie, and is based on the novels REBECCA and STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. Is Lara Parker's Alexis Stokes actually the deceased Angelique Stokes Collins risen from the grave? What will happen to Christopher Pennock as Cyrus Longworth and his alter ego John Yaeger? Angelique's actual return is a chilling and visually pitch-perfect scene. Cyrus' tale is a tragic one, and the character is also likeable and sweet.
Later on in the set, Barnabas and other familiar faces return, and the storyline picks up some speed. Parallel Time needs a hero, and Barnabas will have to step up once again...
