The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows podcast
Daryl Wor
A show of darkness with a lot of heart, plenty of chuckles made both of metaphors and bad puns. As Dark Shadows lifted story lines from a zillion old books of the Gothic variety, what would it be like if they shared time with the current classics? And what if these newer characters could help them lift all the curses? (Contains intros delving into the writing process as well as information and commentary about the various programs and key players.) Essentially a condensed Re-write from a particular point, to tie up loose ends and pair up everyone. Positive feedback, including laughter, can be sent to xoiscythe (at) hotmail.com (Send a message for the info to which episodes apply to the different characters if you only want those specific bits. It has gotten rather wildly Multi-fandom. Just leave a comment to the email address listed asking for which you'd like.) So far the fandoms are: Dark Shadows, The Kids in The Hall, Clue (Wadsworth), The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Addams Family, Bewitched, The Munsters, Psycho, and cameos with Slimer, Norman Bates, Dr. "Hawkeye" Pierce, and hopefully in the future a large role with Doctor Who.

    And now, finally, back to the story… (I’ve been building this podcast since March 2019, so bare with me.) After mention of the dedication we get to what happens during Episode 15 in ‘The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows’, the annotated version, of course.
    The hilarious gin-rummy game between Nicholas Blair and Vampire Angelique, continuing on to the scene with Roger Collins, V’Angelique and Lily Munster. Next, Grandmama Addams and Morticia’s foray into Victoria Winters’ memories of Reverend Trask. Later, we cut from Josette’s room to a Willie and Sarah scene to David’s surprise and back again as Wadsworth enters, which leads to The Great House, Elizabeth’s announcement(s), and Barnabas meeting Lily Munster. (Is Lily’s vampire side helping out too cheesy or corny? Late 20th Century: Yes. Early 21st Century: No.)
    How the Willie and Wadsworth scene reveals why Willie Loomis has been affected by the nurturing touch of Professor Stokes and others.
    Barnabas, at last, encounters the ghost of Caleb Collins. Why Barnabas IS “So Mr. Darcy” and other “Pride and Prejudice” influences. The importance of Maggie/Josette that Caleb understands, leading us to the ending in which Tom Jennings meets Vampire Angelique that night, and why the song fits.
    My feelings about Heather O’Rourke and inviting her admirers to reach out and discuss her short time among us.
    Then we wrap up with one of my lectures about better manners to which many listeners will likely fall asleep.
