The Decades Channel is having a Dark Shadows Binge this weekend which began at 1 p.m. (EST) with the episode in which Carolyn and Elizabeth argue over her undesirable boyfriend, “Buzz,” and will continue nonstop until 7 o’clock Monday morning. The Binge ends with the episode in which Sarah (a ghost) informs David that Maggie Evans is alive and Victoria Winters finds Sarah’s old-fashioned cap on the floor of Collinwood. The show begins in black and white, but beginning with the episode in which Maggie returns from Windcliff (the sanitarium), remembers what happened to her and Julia Hoffman hypnotizes her to suppress her memory, it is in color.
Why didn't they show whole series? I was never able to see it as I was always working
I don't know why Decades never shows the entire series -- perhaps because it would take longer than a weekend. Usually, Decades begins with the episodes leading up to the appearance of Barnabas, but I think this time, the show took up where it left off on the last Decades binge weekend.
It took me a while, but I have the entire series on DVD now and I bought some of the episodes on ebay for only a few dollars.
