Real Slim Shadows

"Dark Shadows" is back -- again.

"Dark Shadows," a 1960s soap opera set in a town called Collinwood, in the 1960s that had vampires, is in for a remake, WB style. It's set to arrive via television this fall.

A press release stated that the show will aim younger -- surprise! Nice to see that the WB is aiming slightly lower now, after shows hot teen-ifying pop culture icons Superman, Lone Ranger, and Tarzan netted only one success.

This really is an easy fit, with the return in 2003 of the hot teen soap opera, like "The O.C." and "Everwood."

I hope beyond hope that at some point on the new Hot Teen Dark Shadows, someone says, "That's how we do things in Collinwood, bitch!"

Reruns of the original air on Sci Fi. Surprisingly, though, nobody airs reruns of the 1991 remake that featured Michael T. Weiss, who would go on to be "The Pretender." What' s up with that?

Hmmm... I wonder if hot teen vampire Barnabas on the new show will be all moody and depressed?

Hey -- that means soundtrack work for The Cure!
