"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...

I watched Dark Shadows as a kid and was intrigued with the series. There were many things on the show I didn't understand, but I continued to watch. One day my child-care provider introduced the series to me and I was hooked ever since. Never, had I known or seen the ending, so this is my chance to see it all over again with a more understanding of the series. Because of these DVDs, I was able to attend my first Dark Shadow Festival in Brooklyn, NY, the year before Jonathan Frid past. I got to meet Lara Parker, David Selby, Jerry Lacy, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Roger Davis, and many others because of these DVD's. Thanks Amazon.

THE best Gothic soap opera just gets better with new characters, strange plot twists, and intriguing storylines! Barnabas Collins finds himself in a parallel time band and the people he thinks he knows are very very different in this time. Collinwood is under siege by supernatural forces.... a witch with revenge on her mind. I can't stop watching this show! I watched it as a child because of the scary vampire but now I watch it for many more reasons. The actors are so versatile. If you're following the show, don't miss this one!

Love watching this TV show that I watched as a little girl. My husband and I love it so much and make Sunday evenings a special time for watching Dark Shadows. Gives us something to look forward to at the end of the weekend (instead of thinking about Monday morning!). Price at Amazon was the best we could find, too.

Dark Shadows is one of those shows you remember better than others from your childhood. I can remember watching it with my mom and now my daughter is watching it with me. Lots of fun, campy so what but that's what we loved about it.

I have been following Dark Shadows since I was little and now have collecte all on DVD. Its a very addicting show that has storylines that will grab your attention and leave craving more! This collection focuses on Angelique who is an alternate reality and wreaking havoc along with a ghost and a mad scientist. The stories will remind many of such novels as "Rebecca" and "Dr. Jeckell and Mr. Hyde". Very good series to own and I am proud to have it in my collection.

The parallel time story continues with the nod to Du Maurier's Rebecca and the mystery surrounding the death Quentin's wife Angelique. Things get even more complicated when her twin sister Alexis blows into town. Or is she really a returned from the dead Angelique? Along with this story is one involving doctor/scientist Cyrus Longworth and his Jekyll/Hyde alter ego John Yaeger.

*Yawn*

Sorry, as much as I've been enjoying this series this set is seriously boring until the last half of the last DVD. There was a bit going on with a returned from the past character haunting the mansion and running everyone out (a retread of the Quentin storyline). I adore Lara Parker, but she's kind of boring playing a good person - although things do change towards the end and then things are more like I like to see them and it looks like she and Barnabas are setting up for a seriosly wicked game of cat and mouse. I loathed the Jekyll/Hyde storyline, and much of that is I did not care for the way actor Christopher Pennock overplayed them - and be warned while it does take place off screen those who are sensitive to domestic violence issues might want to avoid this.

The biggest problem is that several key characters were written out for a large chunk of these episodes so that they could film House of Dark Shadows and that loss is very evident, and once they all returned is when the action picked up. I got very very tired of opening every episode with a recap of the plight of Barnabas trapped and chained in a coffin by Willy Loomis - I got it the first three times, I didn't need to be clubbed over the head with it. If you're in for the long haul with this series I suppose you'll have to get through these, but don't be afraid to use the fast-forward button. You won't miss much I promise you.
