More Focused Than the Original Series
19 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This didn't have the camp of the original series and it moved faster, stayed more focused on the main story line. This time, Dan Curtis didn't work with a shoestring budget and he was able to put something together that wasn't as rough around the edges as the original series. Of course, that roughness was part of the charm of the original, and I still have a special place in my heart for it. But this is much better done. Granted, most of the women in this series are not as good looking as their 1960s counterparts (especially Carolyn. Nancy Barrett was hot as Carolyn in the 1960s version. And Lysette Anthony didn't have the hypnotic quality that Lara Parker's Angelique had.) I was disappointed in the way this series ended. I was hoping to see how they would handle the Frankenstein monster and werewolf stories, even have a Quentin story (which was part of the werewolf story). But, as sloppily as the original DARK SHADOWS ended, at least it was a conclusive ending. This just left you hanging, waiting for them to get into the other "monster" stories, and then they never came. I for one felt cheated. 6 out of 10 because it ended too soon and they left you hanging.
