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 1966-71, Dark Shadows has earned the reputation as being one of the most unusual and enduring programs in broadcasting history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden, 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success. Now for the first time on DVD are the spooky series' rare, early episodes before the arrival of Barnabas. Special features include a new Dark Shadows introduction with Alexandra Moltke (Victoria Winters) and Dark Shadows history with Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans); the original network promo; and the first episode with the original 1966 commercials.
