David Selby's official website has revealed which episodes will be included on the upcoming "Best of Quentin" compilation. The "Quentin" DVD will be followed by a "Best of Angelique" compilation later in the year, both of which includes input from actors David Selby and Lara Parker.
Unsurprisingly, many of the episodes included in the David Selby compilation center on the Haunting of Collinwood/1987 Flashback storylines. They were both landmark moments for DARK SHADOWS, which reached its peak in popularity during these story arcs. The show would later struggle for ways to make the character relevant once it made the leap "back" to the present, though. Quentin Collins just wasn't as much fun with a moral center.
Anyhoo, I've created a visual "episode guide" for the upcoming DVD, which you can see at the top. (Artwork for the packaging hasn't been released yet, so I made my own.) I'll be back later with a look at the "Best of Angelique" episode selection. You can find a text summary of the "Best of Quentin" episodes below:
