I somehow managed to miss this last week, what with mom being in the hospital and work being crazy and all, but it makes me very sad.
I was a little too young for the original run of Dark Shadows. In fact I started out with the comic books instead. I watched the series in reruns during the late 1970s, though, and I really loved it as a 13-year-old who–oddly enough–may have had a longer attention span than I do now. But a few years ago, when Mark and I started watching it from episode one, I found the slow pace to be a little excruciating. When we split up, I gave up on the show.
Barnabas has always been a big part of my life, though, and I’ll rather miss the elegant Canadian who originated the role.
Update: Apparently the New York Times didn’t clue in till today either so I don’t feel quite so bad.
