This article does the best dang job of explaining why, to many of us, there really is only one Barnabas Collins, Jonathan Frid. To those of you who don't understand why so many of us are upset at what we see Depp and Burton doing...please read this one, it explains the amazing series, what Frid did and why there's a fandom 45 years later. And why we are all so very, very sad today.

Very shocked to see the news of Jonathan's passing. I've loved him since I was a little kid and remember his Barnabas Collins like it was yesterday. Few actors can make such an indelible mark. Wish he could have been around for the hubbub that will surround the premiere.

It's great to see the 2 generations of Barnabas side by side.

Okay. I get it. I GREW UP with Jonathan Frid. I was ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FANS. i DID run home to absorb the new and EXTRAORDINARY splendor of this new and utterly out of the world, groovy, outtasite and so forth series (NOT IN RERUNS EITHER). I noticed the errors and dismissed them with love of what it was, and really GOT INTO the world of DARK SHADOWS (Geesh, I had a friend who filed her teeth and at times thought she was a witch due to this program).
I am also enjoying the light hearted, full expression of Depp and Burton and I still think... I'm gonna like this "parody" sort of thing on what we loved back then.
Just MY humble opinion here.
This is NOT due to a love of Depp and Burton, but a love of what they enjoyed and what we did too.
It's NOT Dark Shadows as we loved back then.. but what we/they can bring to the slighlty different generation today.
Well, that's what I have to say.. off the soapbox.... Holly
