|Above, Dark Shadows Collection 6.|
A few years ago, I began buying the MPI Dark Shadows original series DVDs.
I managed to get the first five DVDs before stopping. Yes, I know the complete series is available in a box set (around $300), but I did not want to get the whole series.
The last DVD I have has the 1795 storyline in which Victoria Winters (Alexandra Moltke) is back in the past so that how Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) became a vampire is revealed. I was watching some of the episodes in Collection 5 the other day and decided to get Dark Shadows Collection 6.

As it turned out, I received a telephone call from Amazon and the lady said the driver was looking for my apartment and wondered if he needed to be buzzed in. I gave her the directions to my apartment and within minutes the package was at my door.
The DVD case features Kathryn Leigh Scott as Josette as a vampire with her glued-on fingernail fangs.
Since I had nothing else going on yesterday, I started watching it. I finished the first disc last night. The original air dates for these episodes was in January 1968. I began watching the show a few months later (thanks to my mom).
Talk about great service! I wasn't expecting it until today, but it was delivered one day after ordering.
