Talking Dark Shadows

I got some questions about Dark Shadows Here goes:

What was it about?

When did it get cut off the air?

When Did it start?

Does it have to do with anything with Vampires?

Can you answer those lol. I've never seen Dark Shadows but it was my Grandma's Favorite Soap besides The Young And The Restless.

It was about the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine. They lived in Collinwood, the family estate which had been built in 1795. (Pre-1795 they lived in the Old House, which is on the grounds of Collinwood). Elizabeth Collins Stoddard (Portrayed by Joan Bennett) is the matriarch of the family, Carolyn Stoddard (Nancy Barrett) is her wild teen/early 20s daughter, Roger Collins (Louis Edmonds) is Elizabeth's brother who she is constantly arguing with, and David Collins (David Henesy) is the 10 year old son of Roger. In the first episode, Victoria Winters (Alexandra Moltke) comes to Collinwood to be the governess of David Collins. At first the show dealt with more soap-like things: The manslaughter case of Burke Devlin, who ended up in jail for five years for something he did not commit, and the origins of Victoria Winters, since she was an orphan and thought that clues to her past might be hidden there. The first supernatural thing to come was some ghosts, followed by Roger's estranged wife Laura who is a phoenix. In April of 1967, Barnabas Collins, a vampire, arrived. If you want to know anything about the show that happened between April of 1967 to April 1971, just post.

In episode #211 (April 1967), Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins was introduced. He is one of the most famous vampires ever to be on any screen. He was on the show until the end of it's run, but by mid-1968 he had been cured of his vampirism. The witch Angelique Bouchard Collins was for a while a vampire who kidnapped Victoria among other people. Other short term vampires, such as Tom Jennings, were on the show between 1968 until 1971.

I had to vote for The Young & the Restless. I've been watching this show since I was knee high to a grasshopper, as both my mother and grandmother were addicted to the show. And Nikki and Victor still can't get enough of each other, after all of these years!!!

Dark Shadows.
I think anyone who was a kid back in the 1960s would have to
vote for Dark Shadows as that was a really cool show.
Barnabas Collins was probably the second most famous and
recoginzable tv character after Mr. Spock.

I remember watching Dark Shadows when it went into syndication in the 80s. My mother told me that she used to rush home from middle school in the late-60s to watch the show and that all of her friends had to watch it as well. I enjoyed when they would travel back in time. I also liked to spot all of the mistakes that were made, as the show was filmed live as it aired! Lots of booms falling into view and stage hands coughing loudly in the background!

Just a question, why wasn't Passions included in the poll? There was a time when Passions was great... only in the beginning. Anyways my favorite soap opera is All My Children. I love Kendall.
