How many remember this. Maybe Barnabas could fill us in one the orange hemorrhoid's ranting today:

3. Yeah,

I think we have outgrown it, but I don't know if the squatter in the White House is referring to this when he is talking about dark shadows running Joe?

4. Great background music for an anti-Trump ad from the Lincoln Project.

6. As a kid, I LOVED Dark Shadows.

Campy as hell, but I loved it.

7. Dark Shadows was quite the campy sensation for a while.

They tried to revive it in the early Nineties with, of all actors, Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) as Barnabas. Funny, I was just reminded of that because Cross passed away just recently. It was the first thing that came to mind when Trump referenced "dark shadows."

8. Yep

"It was the first thing that came to mind when Trump referenced "dark shadows."

That's why I went and found this to post.

9. Ha! Listening to the creepy music with feelings of nostalgia.

I'd forgotten all about Dark Shadows.

10. Time to date myself...

So, every afternoon, once we got home from elementary school, we all would get home about 3:30 to 3:45 and would run as fast as we could to put all our stuff in our homes, say hello to our families, and then gather at one of the houses to watch 'Dark Shadows' at 4 pm. We loved it. My fave character was Quint the werewolf. Even went as him one year for Halloween. I was okay with the remake but part of the original's charm was the campy work and how their creativity managed to create a cultural icon that is still talked about today. (And to say the budgets were low and time was short was an understatement!)

11. I hated that show...

And thankfully, my other sibling wouldn't watch it either. All the kids on the bus to school talked about it incessantly and I was embarrassed for them. Makes me cringe to think about it now.
