added another "season" to its offerings of DARK SHADOWS episodes. Last October, the streaming media company expanded its catalog to provide the first 200+ episodes of the series to feature Jonathan Frid as vampire Barnabas Collins. (Episodes 210 to 412, for those of you keeping score.)
Now, DARK SHADOWS did not originally air in traditional television "seasons." As a daytime drama, the show aired consistently throughout the week, holidays and national crises be damned. So it's a little strange to discuss DVD collections as "seasons," but whatever.
What's especially odd about Hulu's latest "season" is that it's significantly shorter than the previous collections. Seasons one through five have 40 episodes each, while the latest season adds only 17 shows. Regardless, this is a step in the right direction. It's certainly better that having 17 fewer episodes available.
