Oh Barnabas, what have they done to you?

Wait, what? I had no idea that "Dark Shadows" was going to be a broad comedy, sort of a parody of itself, what with Barnabas hanging upside down like a bat and breaking a TV to try and get Karen Carpenter out of the back (it's set in 1972, in honor of the original show).

This looks like "The Brady Bunch Movie," and while that worked there, we am not so sure about this. Although admittedly, "21 Jump Street," out Friday, took a retro drama and turned it into a hilarious comedy. Still not so sure I like Barnabas being mocked in this way though. Am protective of my childhood vampire.

The original show was in the 60's.
