As Bart Simpson would say, Ay Carumba!
MPI is releasing a 131-disc DVD set of the complete original Dark Shadows TV series. That's 1,225 episodes.
If that's not a record, I don't know what is.
Here's the original press release:
Originally scheduled for release on May 8, TV Shows on DVD reports today that the release date has been pushed back to July 10. No reason is given, though I bet it probably has to do with the logistics of doing quality control on 1,225 episodes!
As one who actually considered buying the complete Law & Order set, and who might invest one day in a complete Simpsons set, and who would jump at buying a complete Doctor Who if that were ever possible, I can't fault Dark Shadows fans wanting all 1,225 episodes. But man ... that's a lot of TV!
