I am certainly glad I stuck around, for the group calling themselves the Collinsport Players put on a marvelous little skit, crossing the somewhat disparate TV universes of the Golden Girls and Dark Shadows!
It started out with the traditional broken-down car problem/needing travel help, I think. At least I seem to remember it that way. I'd written a similar plot years ago in my head (the better versions being with Carl Kolchak [Night Stalker] winding up in Collinsport, with JF playing the mysterious auto mechanic duffer who drops hints his way; or at least having Mrs. Jessica Fletcher trip over a body somewhere...[Murder She Wrote]). Anyway, it gets things started. Well, except for the car.
All the actors did very well, but I think the fellow who portrayed Dorothy really hit the mark! He did a fabulous Bea Arthur...
Sophia and Dorothy meet Barnabas Collins. After a fashion, anyway. Barnabas permits them to spend the night at the Old House. Especially the naïve Rose Nyland... Barnabas enjoys striking dramatic or brooding poses, here and there. Everyone needs a hobby.
