1971: The sci-fi soap opera "Dark Shadows" concludes an almost five-year run. While the show didn't originally include any supernatural elements, it broke new ground when ghosts were introduced about six months into its run. The series became hugely popular when vampire Barnabas Collins, played by Jonathan Frid, appeared a year into its run. "Dark Shadows" also featured werewolves, zombies, monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel and a parallel universe.
