It seems weird not to have some elaborate essay/podcast/stunt ready to run today. The first episode of DARK SHADOWS aired on this date in 1966, a milestone that the federal government refuses to recognize as an official holiday no matter how much I protest. (Thanks, Obama.) Regardless, I've given the staff the day off, which means things are going to be a little quiet around here today.
If you've never seen the first episode of DARK SHADOWS, today is the perfect day to remedy that oversight. Below is streaming video of the episode, which was voted as the second best in the series by our readers back in 2014. Yes, it's really that good.
