While the release of the DS catalogue in monthly installations in 1990 was big news for fans of the show it was tedious old hat for Jonathan Frid. He had waded through years of media and fan frenzy and was long-settled into his career as an ensemble and solo stage presence. Maybe he was really bored with the whole Shadows phenomena or just wasn't getting a cut of the $79.98 price tag on the 4 cassette 20 episode box sets. Either way he continued to do what he loved most by acting out his one man shows for both paying and non-paying customers in college towns around the US. The shows were appropriately titled "Fools and Fiends," "Fridiculousness" and "Shakesperian Portraits."
