Podcast: The Groovy Ghoulies


I’m not gonna so far as to say time heals all wounds, but looking back at 2012, it was certainly an interesting chapter in the history of DARK SHADOWS. In recent months, I’ve avoided the topic of the Tim Burton film like the plague. It tends to bring out the worst in Dark Shadows fans, myself included. But, it’s been almost a year since the movie was released, and with a little time between us and the film, I hoped we could talk about it like adults. With that idea in mind, I rounded up the usual suspects and set about conducting a postmortem on DARK SHADOWS.

The original plan for this episode was to include a second segment for fans of the Burton film to talk about the movie. Ultimately, there just wasn't enough space to include both discussions without butchering their dialogues in editing, so I've split them into two episodes. The next episode, THE GREAT DARK SHADOWS REBUTTAL, will showcase the opinions of fans of the Burton film.

This songs featured in this episode are KNIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN by The Moody Blues, ALLIGATOR MAN by Stoneground and VAMPIRE MONEY by My Chemical Romance.

This week's panel is PATRICK McCRAY, WILL McKINLEY and myself, WALLACE McBRIDE. No blarney stones were kissed in the making of this podcast.

Every single DS has been a profoundly mixed bag. The original series was a blend of greatness and vast mediocrity. By my count the 2012 is the tenth version (os, 91 series, Gold Key comics, Innovation comics, the OOB play, the Big Finish dramas, the WB pilot, the Ross novels, HODS and NODS, then 2012). This was Tim Burton's version. I enjoyed it. BTW, I was a big fan of the original show. And you are wrong--the opening music DID include some things from the original.
