Dark Shadows–With Johnny Depp!!!

Dark Shadows is the masterpiece Masterpiece Theatre never was, like an Edward Gorey book sprung to life. I used to get excited when the spooky Edward Gorey intro to Masterpiece Theatre came on, and then the actual movies shown inevitably fail to live up spookiness and intrigue of the Edward Gorey animation. But, Dark Shadows lives up to such an Edward Gorey intro–a spooky (and campy) masterpiece. Just as addictive as watching HBO’s the Wire–however, there were 1,125 episodes of Dark Shadows made as opposed to the Wire’s 60 episodes.

Surprisingly, Dark Shadows was a daytime soap opera–the world’s first supernatural suspense soap opera? Imagine Dark Shadows coming on after “Days of Our Lives” or something, hmm…

I just learned that Johnny Depp!!! bought the rights to Dark Shadows and is going to star in a Warner Brothers Dark Shadows movie coming in a year or so!!!

I also read that DJ Premier sampled the Dark Shadows theme music for a beat once…

My name is Victoria Winters…

What interests me the most about Dark Shadows is its emphasis on strategic thinking, strategic uses of information, game theory, and negotiation; who knows what, who can be led to believe what, how information can be leveraged used as a threat and/or a deterrent, etc.
