they are use to being with cast and crew for hours on end
recording episodes for decades..
It’s a fix for them and entertaining for fans,

im bored out of my mind to the point i no longer have one…lol

Jimh–
well, you can watch Dark Shadows for a half-hour every night, that may help lol..
I watch it nightly..

i watch it to plus i belong to several DS sites…and we sometimes have watch parties….

It’s great that that the ”Discovery” channel/network
took on the Dark Shadow series..
thing is-
it needs many viewers to keep it from
getting canceled..
so, I hope many tune in..
It’s only on the second season now.

I hope if the new one gets the green light-its suppose to be DS 50 years later and set in today…on the CW sometime next year if this Pandemic ever ends and they can film!!!
