HASH(0xa12717d0) out of 5 stars Chilling good fun July 31 2011
By Misfit - Published on
Format: DVD
Wow, these are the best episodes yet. The creepy fun continues with Magda facing a ghostly gypsy jury for stealing the hand of Count Petofi. With a nod to the Portrait of Dorian Gray, a portrait of Quentin painted by Charles Delaware Tate seems to have *absorbed* the curse - but what does the devilishly evil Petofi want in return for granting such a boon? And what power does Tate have that he can draw a vase, a brooch or even a person and they come to life?

Edward is cured of the madness cast upon him by Petofi, but Charity Trask continues to think she's dancer/singer Pansy Fay (delightfully played by a scene stealing Nancy Barrett). Barnabas is captured and faces destruction, but he's able to *send* a letter to Julia Hoffman in the present and she uses the I-ching wands to come to the rescue - but she might be needing some rescuing herself.

Petofi continues his mad schemes to escape the gypsies and hopes to use the wands to escape to the future, but he needs to find the right door and he's happy to find other folks to experiment for him and suffer the consequences of using the wrong door. This set also brings Angelique back with a stronger storyline as she's blackmailed Quentin into marrying her, but she's in for a surprise as Kathryn Leigh Scott returns as one more reincarnation of Josette - Lady Hampshire - and she and Angelique take an instant dislike to each other. I hope there's more cat-fights coming in the next episodes :)

There's a delightful twist at the end between Petofi and Quentin that will have you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next installment, so I'd recommend you have it on hand and ready to pop in the DVD player. I've seen some comments on the other reviews about the quality of the packaging in these later editions and I have to agree it's not up to par with the earlier sets. I've been getting these through the library so they've received plenty of not-so-gentle handling and the sleeves are torn and the DVD's fall out and get banged about quite a bit.

HASH(0xa1271824) out of 5 stars GREAT SHOW AND GREAT PACKAGING June 21 2011
By FAN OF THE GREAT STUFF - Published on
Format: DVD
I don't understand the negative comments from one of the other persons posting here regarding the packaging that the Dark Shadows DVDs are issued in. MPI Home Video has done DARK SHADOWS and its fans a wonderful job over the past 20 years in making all 1,225 episodes available on VHS and DVD -- and in top quality fashion, not to mention bonus interviews on EVERY disc plus many other exciting features on special releases such as DARK SHADOWS BLOOPERS & TREASURES, DARK SHADOWS REUNION and DARK SHADOWS SPECIAL EDITION.

In fact each of the 4-disc Volumes of episodes have featured collectible photo postcards as well as 6-page brochures with thumb-nail episode synopsis (with original airdates) for easy and quick reference as well as additional photographs.

I have had no problems with the standard plastic packaging that holds the DVDs and all the other fans I've spoken with have been equally pleased and grateful for these releases. What other serial -- and program with over 1,000 episodes -- is available in its entirety on DVD? DARK SHADOWS is a wonderful escape into a world of Gothic mystery.

HASH(0xa1271c5c) out of 5 stars Rating for MPI 's awful packaging. NOT for the Dark Shadows series Feb. 16 2010
By Chloe - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's amazing I'm the only one that seems to be displeased with MPI's shoddy packaging of the Dark Shadows series. I have had to send for replacements of my DVD sets countless times throughout the past couple of months. I don't like the way they cram the DVDs in frail holders which constantly has resulted in the tabs coming loose & falling in the case. The tabs which contain the DVDs are NOT secure & I've been discovering more & more that there are usually a couple of tabs missing.

I LOVE Dark Shadows & have been very pleased with the packaging & care put into collections 1-14. Unfortunately MPI seems to have laxed since then & have shown little regard for how they package & market these sets. The trouble had began with volume 15 onwards & I've been having trouble ever since. DVDs become dislodged & slide back & forth within the case due to their ever-broken holder tabs. I can't tell you how many discs have been badly scratched on account of this! This is NOT a result of the DVDs journey to me, it's most certainly due to MPI.

I read that Amazon had discontinued their line of volumes 1-8 from (Dark Shadows) *The Beginning* series for awhile (they've since started issuing them again) as customers complaints were very similar to mine of the inferior care put in to their DVD sets.

I'm very upset that MPI is cheap in their care of marketing these sets & felt compelled to pass my experience with this matter along to others who may be experiencing the same trouble.
HASH(0xa1271c44) out of 5 stars "I Just Don't Understand...!" May 25 2012
By O. Marie - Published on
Format: DVD
"Who am I? WHY am I? WHAT am I?! I'd better not say anything to anyone or they'll think I'm..." BONKERS!! (Quentin, possessed by Count Petofi.) David Selby as Quentin is HOT. Nancy Barrett is both delightful and frightening as Charity Trask, possessed as a dance hall girl! hee hee! There are nice gay interludes between Aristede and Petofi. Petofi can't succeed in time travel, he's still too mentally attached to his crusty old hand. (eewww!)

It's emotions that keep people tied in the astral realms. The use of I-Ching hexagrams is awesome for time-travel! The readings always signify the lesson for the journey. Petofi has the gall to give Angelique grief about feeling emotions such as love and compassion? The characters always threaten to extort someone if they don't get what they want. (Is that so smart? Or does it just create MORE chaos?!)

Julia's astral body can't be killed with a bullet. ; -) She never, ever seems to get her golden-moment with Barnabus! Even if she IS willing to be shot! NO ONE seems to be getting what they want: sex, sex sex!! The family portrait painter, Charles Tate, freaks when he learns he can channel live persons through his paintings. Reverend Trask is an ass! (If I had been Nora? I would have kicked him right where it counts!!)

Emotions such as fear and hatred are the very thing to take over our minds, becoming our projections... And creating "Dark Shadows". Listen to what's in your heart. And never forget... Everyone wants and needs love.
