Dark Shadows: Live or Taped?


Recommended Posts

For a long time I have been hearing that the original DS was broadcast live. However, I just watched an interview with Laura Parker and she basically said that it was taped two weeks or so in advance.

Which is true? was it Live or Taped?

It was taped, but it might as well have been live, since re-shoots and second takes were extremely rare. Unless an actor dropped dead in the scene, that was what you saw on camera. I can't tell you how many times I saw overhead microphones clearly visible in the scenes, or crew members accidentally walking into camer view, or actors (mostly Jonathan Frid) forgetting their lines, straining to find a cue card.
