K. A. K.'s Dark Shadows Obit

The Bridgeport Post, April 30, 1971

Somewhere right now K. A. K. of Bridgeport, CT is probably at work, tending to grandparenting duties or watching the box set of the show and lamenting the passing of the great Jonathan Frid. But in 1971 he or she was grilling ABC for pulling the plug on America's favorite family of ghouls and wrote this obituary. The not-so-subtle dig at Password, which replaced DS back in 1971, was an appropriate diss of the network's longstanding ability to destroy quality television in favor of ratings and money. According to the editorial response they weren't the only complainant.
