Storyline

A Gothic soap opera that took place on a small Caribbean island, Strange Paradise featured the occult in the story of wealthy but cursed Jean Paul Desmond who resided in his castle Maljardin with his servants Raxl, a voodoo priestess, and Quito, a mute strongman. When the series began, he was mourning the deaths of his wife Erica and their unborn child. His desire to bring his wife back to life resulted in more tragedy. Eventually Maljardin burned down and the action moved to Desmond Hall, the family home somewhere in the United States, and many new characters were introduced. Written by Anonymous

The Third Arc
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was a THIRD storyline that aired under a different show title that ran in 1971 in U.S. syndication---for the life of me I can't remember the title, but I watched it until it ended the same year. Could this be the discrepancy of the total number of episodes? It added a few assorted Dark Shadows writers and actors, probably Robert Costello's attempt to save the show. I remember it had a pretty high body count towards the end of the storyline! Hope someone else had seen this and could provide more details...

Thanks,

LarryM
