Upcoming Broadcasts

Starting off as a vaguely gothic but otherwise fairly standard mid-60's soap opera, Dark Shadows arose from the minds of producer Dan Curtis and story editor Art Wallace (and later, unofficial head writer Sam Hall), working a very Daphne DuMaurier meets Charlotte Bronte thematic structure for over 200 episodes. But when faltering ratings and the threat of cancellation resulted in a "shoot for the moon" introduction of a literal vampire, the little soap opera that couldn't became an international phenomenon, not only topping the ratings but resulting in a long running paperback series, comics, fan tribute records and more! Breaking all established boundaries of daytime television, Curtis and company would take everyone from housewives and students to college professors through a seemingly endless parade of supernatural doings and occultic hoo-ha, from vampires, werewolves and ghosts to witches, zombies and a surprising degree of time travel... Shoddy sets, line flubs and hilariously hammy overacting await, as we discuss the history of Dark Shadows and its early 90's revival, only here on Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine! Week 34 Dark Shadows
