Dark Shadows was a daytime television drama but with a paranormal twist. The show featured witches, vampires, zombies, and elements of time travel. It also featured the dramatic story-lines common to daytime dramas, such as, blackmail, revenge, death, love, and kidnapping. The story picks up when Victoria Winters, a governess, arrives at the Collinwood estate, to tend to the Collin's youngest child. Soon after her arrival, the story starts in on the mysterious past of the estate, the family who lives there, and the servants that maintain the house, but once the mysterious vampire, Barnabas Collins, resurfaces, this daytime drama kicks it into a new whelm of the supernatural.
