Description by OLDIES.com:
With its alluring tales of Gothic mystery and supernatural intrigue, "Dark Shadows" become 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 television history. The character of Barnabas Collins, a guilt-ridden 175-year-old vampire, brought the show tremendous success.
Released from a chained coffin after nearly 200 years, Barnabas Collins arrives at the Collinwood estate claiming to be a relative from England. Although noticing Barnabas' resemblance to his "ancestor" in the foyer portrait, the Collins family does not realize he is the same Barnabas that lived at Collinwood in the 18th century. As Barnabas moves into the Old House on the property, those around him are unaware of the horrors that will soon follow.
Contains 40 complete, spine-tingling episodes!
Originally a daytime soap opera, DARK SHADOWS garnered a huge cult following during its original 1966-1971 run and separated itself from its peers by dealing with increasingly bizarre and daring story lines. Covering episodes 210-250 in the series, this 4-disc set continues the saga of Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), a 200-year-old vampire living on his family's manor estate in Collinsport, Maine.
