* Ryan Murphy, the creator of GLEE and AMERICAN HORROR STORY, is a long-time DARK SHADOWS fan. A number of people have sent me a link to a recent interview with him at The Huffington Post, which suggests not everybody is aware of his fan status. "I was obsessed with it as a child," he says of DARK SHADOWS in the interview. "What I really wanted to do was my version of it, where there are creatures, soapy drama, and sex. Believe it or not, I owe my career to my grandmother, who used to make me watch "DARK SHADOWS" as punishment!" Read the entire story HERE.
* Hey, remember the DARK SHADOWS DIARY? When I used to write about DARK SHADOWS on an episode by episode basis? Well, it looks like that's pretty much dead. The weight of juggling the regular website demands AND the podcast pretty much crushed that series. Also, I discovered that watching the show was more fun when I didn't have to file paperwork immediately afterward. The series absolutely had its fans, but I'm not bearing this bad news empty handed. If you want your daily does of DARK SHADOWS episode commentary, let me direct you to DARK SHADOWS EVERYDAY. I think you'll like what you'll find.
