MPI Home Video is preparing an April 10th DVD release of the complete late 60’s gothic soap “Dark Shadows”, a month ahead of Tim Burton’s upcoming cinematic reimagining.
The set consists of a whopping 131 DVDs containing all 1225 episodes but doesn’t include the two movies – 1970’s “House of Dark Shadows” and 1971’s “Night of Dark”. It also uses the same DVD masters as the original individual 4-DVD sets issued over the past 10 years and will retail at $600. [Source: TV Shows on DVD]

The episode was also available on-demand and online for a week ahead of the premiere and more than 1.4 million on-demand and online views were logged to date. [Source: Zap2It]
