    I was in 3rd grade when this was on, and I watched every ep. Wish they'd give it another chance. Can't they replace one of the many Law and Order shows on NBC?

    I didn't watch this back in '91, but I'm catching it now that it's on DVD. Just finished the 4th episode and I'm hooked! I can't believe this show wasn't renewed. Network execs don't know the first thing about quality television...

    I remember watching it when it first aired(I was 12) and I loved every second of it and still do. Wish it could have gone on longer. Another show that ended WAY WAY too soon.

    It wasn't cancelled due to low ratings (at least from the beginning). NBC kept pre-empting it due to war coverage (same thing happened to Veritas: The Quest and Miracles on ABC in 2003) and the ratings fell because of it.

    No they cant! Even though Dark Shawdows [the revival] was a classic in many ways of its own. They could never replace on of the Law and Order shows.

    Just finished watching the series on DVD (finally). Too bad it ended so soon. This show really had potential.

    It's been 15 years since this series ended. Perhaps someone out there will take another stab at updating the story for a contemporary audience.

    I was 7 when I first watched this on TV. I just Nettflixed the first disc and cannot believe how good it is!!! I remember it being preempted and taking forever. At the time, I thought that it was a "Mini-Series" and never thought of getting more episodes. But now, (in my grown-up state of mind) I wish there were more.

    Chiller channel (Brighthouse cable) ran a marathon of pilot + all eps last weekend so I finally got to view this version of DS. Faster paced than the original but no less enjoyable!
