Four score and two years ago I was immersed in the gothic world of Dark Shadows every day after school. Although I was unaware of the term gothic at the time and the intracies of the series' plot often escaped me, the allure of the show was nonetheless powerful. I always hoped that some day I would be able to return to Collinsport and reacquaint myself with the characters and unravel the mysteries. Now I can anda few dozenepisodes into it, I'm having a blast. How nice a place like this exists for other Dark Shadow-philes.
