The real “Dark Shadows”

Like many of you (I’m guessing), I wasn’t quite old enough to watch and appreciate “Dark Shadows” back when it was an afternoon soap — and so now, in preparation to review Tim Burton’s big-screen movie inspired by the show (which opens Friday), I’m watching a little YouTube and concluding that this show was kind of nuts. In a good way. I vaguely knew that the show was about a vampire named Barnabas Collins, but what I didn’t know was that the show went on for more than 200 episodes before Barnabas even showed up, and that David’s mother Laura was, as we’re told by a calm-voiced narrator in a season summary, “an immortal phoenix.” Really? TV could use a few more immortal phoenixes these days. Anyway, I found the clip that shows Barnabas first arriving at Collinwood, with his coat collar nicely turned up in perfect vampire fashion:

Anyone remember this well? Any fans of the show out there?
