Goodbye Barnabus


Goodbye to the wonderful actor, Jonathan Frid. 
He died last weekend at 87.
He brought the character of vampire Barnabus Collins to life (or death)
 in a way no other actor could. 
Dark Shadows will probably go down 
as my favorite tv show of all time.
It was the something I had to look forward to
every day after school,
and I couldn't wait to get home and watch it. 
And I don't think it would have been as compelling
without Mr. Frid.
He was the first to make vampires 
emotional and conflicted.
And he did it with style and grace.
Goody bye.
