Well - while we wait for the Nec Movie! lol
Ever since she was a young girl, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has been able to see and talk to dead people--earth bound spirits who have yet to cross over to the other side and who seek her help in communicating and resolving unfinished business with the living. Melinda sometimes has a hard time accepting her "gift," especially now that she's a newlywed and looking forward to starting her new life with her husband, Jim Clancy (David Conrad), a paramedic. Her friend and business partner in the antique store, Andrea Moreno (Aisha Tyler), is fascinated by Melinda's talent. Although Melinda embraces her unique "abilities" as a blessing and sometimes a curse, she always helps her clients--alive or dead--find emotional closure.

yes, but see........no vampires. So it's like totally different - right?

You wait for years for a good I talk with dead people film or programme - and a bunch come along at once... 6th Sense, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, American Idol, Stannah Stairlift Commercials...
May 13th, 2006, 05:18 PM
LOL American Idol heh ehh
But yeah, they seem to come in batches.. Medium I watched a couple of times, but imho not worth keeping up with. And I just can't see the little skinny big-eared gal doing any bit better.

She sees and talks to some ghosts who need help.
I don't think that's the same as talking to or raising the dead.

While the idea is nice it is nothing like Lumley's work. It never did keep my interest the few times I watched parts of it.

Only reason I mentioned it is because popular media is rife with programmes that is tapping into 'the beyond...'
From short-lived programmes such as Dead Like Me and Tru Calling through to blockbusters like 6th Sense.
The market is ripe for a big/small screen adaptation, just hope that those with the rights to the Nec movie don't drag their heels for too long and miss the boat...

I like Supernatural grin.gif the others had some good points but were pretty boring overall... The problem is not the category but actually being able to do it well... I just hope they do Necroscope well when they eventually do it !!!

Ever see "Dark Shadows"? that was boring till they brought in the vampires and witches and priests. Then, when that wasn't working anymore, they started hypnotizing small children and sending people back and forth through time. Supernatural stuff is the best.

No never seen Dark Shadows Amarfa, I'll have to watch out for that one!!
May 26th, 2006, 11:17 PM
Heh ehh you guys would get a kick out of it. A Soap Opera that I used to watch when I was a kid, some of the players they had on went on to better things, Magnum PI/Tom Selleck was one.
It's a Cult Classic here in the states, ol' Barnabas was something to see!
Here's some Wiki on the show. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Shadows)

Wow I didn't realise it was so old... Paul would love it, he loves The Outer Limits and Twilight Zones from that period.

Hey! You callin' me old? Erm... wait.. I am
Yep, very Campy and if you don't really pay attention you can get lost in the storyline, but that's how Soaps work..lol I think though for the time, they did a great job at it, especially for it lasting as long as it did, there's alot of Soaps that didn't fare as well.
I'm sure they have the set on DVD, I have the complete VHS set myself right between my RHPS & Clockwork Orange. Two more of my fav classics.

I have seen a few of the Dark Shadow episodes, reruns and not original airings. It was interesting in a cheesy kind of way. Did you ever see the remake they did about 10 - 15 years ago?
May 31st, 2006, 11:27 AM
Yeah I saw parts of it, it was ok, but there is something about cheesy 1960's soap operas that made Dark Shadows what it was :) It just wasn't the same, and I think for those of us who did watch it when it aired (still surprised that even though Mom watched it, she allowed me to watch it being a kid! heh heh) knew that the B-flavor/Soap Opera type acting, etc just can't be duplicated..lol
And there isn't anyone who could play Barnabas quite like Jonathan Frid... same as no one else could successfully play Jack Torrance like Jack Nicholson could, or Dr. Frank N. Furter like Tim Curry :)
Heh ehh sorry to go off your topic Phil!
