The Door of the Unreal has one of the more pleasing solutions I’ve encountered as regards the problem of whether or not to alert/involve the authorities in your plans to kill a humanoid supernatural menace. The police basically just tell the heroes that shooting wolves is 100% legal, but they will all be convicted of murder with no punches pulled if they shoot a person.
How did you get into Dark Shadows?
Ever since I started being interested in vampires, I’d known vaguely of the show’s existence. I knew it was a soap opera that gained popularity when they introduced a vampire, I knew he’d been cursed by a witch, and I knew there was time travel at some point. It was sort of hanging out in the back of my mind as ‘a thing to check out at some point if I find dvds at the library.’
Then Netflix started hosting it, and I figured why not?
I’ll tell you why not- because it’s a super long series that will suck you in and force you to hunt down every episode you can even as you make fun of it.
*(This was actually a Dark Tower Challenge, but I tweaked it.)
Day 1 - How did you get into Dark Shadows?
Day 2 - Favorite protagonist and why.
Day 3 - Favorite antagonist and why.
Day 4 - Favorite original cast member.
Day 5 - You are making your own DS movie, who is your dream cast for Barnabas?
Let’s do this thing.
I really do enjoy the opening of Bride of Frankenstein…
Lord Byron: I am LORD BYRON! I am BOMBASTIC and convinced that EVERTYTHING including the weather is really about ME!
Percy Shelley: I am Percy Shelly. I have nothing to contribute to this scene, so it’s a good thing I’m pretty.
Mary Shelly: My dress is amazing. Also, I wrote a genre-defining novel and just cranked out another while you losers were reciting poetry. Wait, where’s Polidori?
Lord Byron and Percy Shelley: Who cares!

I like knowing that he got sent to Australia for this. I wonder what he talked about with Sweeney Todd on the boat ride?
