Re: Re-imagining Dark Shadows

I was aware of the 1991 revival, the WB's 2004 pilot, and the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton movie project, but, while the concepts of DS are sound, I don't know if sticking to the original soap opera formula of the series would necessarily be sustainable.

One of the few ideas that I had for possibly re-imaging the series was to change its nature from that of a gothic soap opera to more of a serial mystery drama (ala that FOX series 'Vanished' from a few years back). I'm just not sure what the key character relationships would need to be, or even which characters would need to be included (aside from Victoria Winters and Barnabas, of course).
