With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, Dark Shadows became one of the most popular daytime series of all time. Since first airing on ABC-TV from 1966 to 1971, Dark Shadows has earned the reputation of being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden, 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.

Everything about this collection is done right- The restored picture and sound quality are amazing, the bonus videos are fun and interesting, a complete episode guide booklet, and the Coffin Box is a work of art and very sturdy. It may take me a couple years to make my way through all 1200+ episodes, but it's not something I would want to rush/binge through anyway. Awesome!!!
We love pointing out "Collin-speak," when the characters repeat their line. "I don't like it. I don't like it at all..."
So this set is AMAZING. I have included photos of the packaging and presentation. It was boxed in a custom shipping carton, with custom folded cardboard that held the coffin in place. Then that carton was BUBBLE WRAPPED inside a bigger shipping box. Amazing! No damage at all to the treasure inside...
and the coffin-shaped DVD case, is simply remarkable. The hinges are real metal, and the case is going to hold up nicely for many years. I'm sure my husband will display this set in a prominent place, after he is done viewing all the episodes... and I'm sure he will go through and watch them all again after that.
I have also included some photos of the included booklet, which describes each episode. The last 2 pages of the booklet include a list of all the bonus materials.
We have already had many hours of enjoyment from this series. I highly recommend this to any avid fans of Barnabas Collins, Dark Shadows, or even just someone who loves entertainment that features vampires and the supernatural. The show is campy, creepy and cultish. Each episode begins with a shot of the director's board, and almost all of the episodes were shot in only one take. There are mistakes in the lines, and missed cues, filming and technical errors... all included! It's great fun to watch with the family. We love it!
I was so glad to find this. It was the best Christmas gift he has ever received.
I bought this set from a seller on eBay for a song back in March, I should've wondered why I got it so cheap.
I knew something was wrong right off the bat.
Here are the tell-tale signs of the counterfeit Dark Shadows DVD set:
I confirmed ALL of these with MPI Home video.
1. This will tell you if your set is fake right away. The real DVDs are DUAL LAYER FORMAT. Meaning if your discs are all 4.35 GBs(single layer), THEY ARE FAKE. The real DVDs are 6 to 8 GBs and have a gold look to them.
2. The coffin box. It is very cheaply made and usually torn in spots, the coffin lid "stopper" or prop is not included on the counterfeit. Colors are very faded looking. The coffin box should not be shrink wrapped but encased in a special form-fitting cardboard box and the coffin box is also in a special plastic bag.
3. The actual DVD cases are very cheaply made and incredibly scuffed up. The real set has very nice, high quality cases.
4. Many of my DVDs had scuffing, scratching, and other marks. The Paint wasn't quite right on a lot of Discs.
5. The booklet is made of cheap quality paper and the printing is substandard at best.
You would never think a DVD set of this kind of complexity would not be counterfeited but the money is just to tempting for counterfeiters to resist. Any big ticket DVD or CD boxset can and will be counterfeited.
eBay refunded my money but I am out the return shipping. I took extensive pics of the counterfeit set for anyone interested.
I bought the real set here at Amazon shortly after and couldn't be happier with it. 5 stars all the way.
