I have had this on my Hulu Queue since I saw Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp and I don’t know why it took me so long to watch it, but I finally finished it today. There are only 12 episodes and it is totally worth watching.
According to IMDB, the original Dark Shadows had 1225 episodes, but Netflix is only showing 162 episodes. I saw the first season which is 40 episodes, but haven’t seen the 2nd season yet because I kinda got bored with it. I don’t know what made me decide to watch The Revival on Hulu, but I am glad I did because it was an awesome version of the story.
I don’t know if Dark Shadows The Revival is a condensed version of the original, but I really liked it. I wouldn’t have minded if they had more than 12 episodes, but I think I was satisfied with what I got to see. If it is just a condensed version, I can only imagine how much I missed from the original series that I will never get to see.
The best part of this series is we get to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a child who plays David Collins. Also Pretender Jarod Michael T. Weiss plays Joe Haskell… without a shirt… yum yum gimme some!
I could go on about how I liked one more than the other, but who really cares what I think? Just go watch it on Hulu before it expires on 1/2/2013.
