On this date in 1966 Dark Shadows premiered. Although it was a while before Jonathan Frid made his first appearance as vampire Barnabas Collins, it was Barnabas I watched it for. Every afternoon I made sure I was parked right in front of the TV, even in the summer when our little back yard pool was a major attraction. Dark Shadows lasted about 5 years. There were some plots I liked better than others, but Barnabas was there for me through it all.
There has been talk of a remake with Johnny Depp in the role Frid created.
The picture at the top of the post is from the Barnabas Collins page at CollinWiki.
