Interesting that the Amazon UK site marks these as suitable for age 18 and over. I assume the great majority of us who fell in love with the series when it was first on were well under 18 at the time... I was maybe 12.

Do you happen to know if MPI is planning on releasing the series in Bluray format? Or is this complete series format the beginning of phasing out selling DS? Tom in Newburyport, MA

There are no plans to release Dark Shadows on BluRay, as the original episodes were not produced to high definition standards. The Complete Series box set is a limited edition item; at the same time the existing episodic box sets will remain available, just in new packaging.
