Watch Dark Shadows (1966)

The popular television show Dark Shadows delighted viewers when it introduced a new, supernatural element to regular television programming. The show centers around the strange and sometimes frightening Collins family, who live on a large estate called Collinwood in Maine. Victoria Winters, a young woman with a mysterious connection to the Collins family, comes to work at the estate. She is hoping to find out more about the family, as well as discover secrets about her own past.

Victoria soon meets the patriarch of the family, and her boss, Roger Collins, who seems to have murderous intentions. She is also introduced to his son, David Collins. David professes to immediately disliking Victoria, but this does not stop him from telling her tales of the ghosts he claims to see around the estate. Although she finds it difficult to believe, Victoria soon finds that Collinwood does in fact have a supernatural connection. Victoria meets a ghost, and is also introduced to David's mother, who can use magic.

As Victoria begins to unravel her past and the secrets of the Collins family, things become even stranger for the young woman. Soon, a handsome and charming man named Barnabas comes to the estate. He claims to be a distant relative of the Collins family, who has been spending time in England. Although Victoria is enthralled with Barnabas, it is soon clear that he is not really who he claims to be.

Overall, Dark Shadows is a show packed with drama and excitement. The supernatural element adds a scary and intriguing twist, giving it a bit more depth than the average television show.
