Comm Pimpin!  
Basically I, along with some fellow DS fans on LJ, were kinda cheesed off that some older, die-hard fans of the show have already decided, WAY ahead of the game and from just a few comments, that the new DS film is going to suck lycanthrope turds. So baww_collinwood was built to discuss how the show, the movies, all of Dark Shadows, is VURRUH, VURRUH SRS BIZNIZ, and how NO IT'S NOT IT'S JUST A COOL SHOW THAT EVEN THE ACTORS NOW CAN HAVE THE OCCASIONAL LAUGH OVER!

Seriously, we love DS, most of us with something close to a passion. But if even the people who were involved in the day-to-day production of the show can admit that it got a bit unintentionally campy at times, so can we.

And yes, the Comm designation is an homage to brb_collinwood. Deal with it.

JS, even as a new fan, I don't have the highest hopes for the movie but that's because Tim Burton and I have a lot of issues to sort out. I mean, if it's on par with his Sleepy Hollow, then YAY, but if it's anything like what he's done with Alice in Wonderland or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, then :/

I mean, yeah, I should hold judgment until we at least get a trailer, but ehhhhh.

...I'm still gonna have a good time with it, though. I mean, I was entertained by Van Helsing, I'll be fine.

Your opinion is duly noted and TOTALLY understood. Most of us are just sick of the fans who get pissed if you make even a TINY bit of fun of any permutation of DS (say it with me: except for 1841 PT or the second MGM movie!) and we reserve our judgment on the new film until we see something. I think we're all holding out for something with the flair of Sleepy Hollow or even the Inventor's Keep scenes of Edward Scissorhands. We just want a little comm to kinda take the piss out of people who won't even let you laugh at the bloopers on classic Shadows because "IZ MOST SRS SHOW EVAR!"

Burton certainly has the ability, but I just feel like he's been phoning in his movies, well, since Planet of the Apes. But I know Dark Shadows is something he's been wanting to do for a long time now - so that's helping my opinion more than usual. There's always going to be those kind of fans in any fandom, but they tend to be major lolz fodder. Kids need to chill out.

/PSA I'm drunk and probably shouldn't engage in livejournal conversations while drunk.

Too bad. Drunk is fun.

It's like Sloppily Singing Along to Tom Jones drunk, though.

There is no better kind of drunk! Except possibly throwing dishes in a Greek restaurant drunk.
