For no particular reason, I present to you what the creators of DARK SHADOWS apparently thought basements look like… complete with aboveground large bay window. The character in this image (Julia Hoffman) is terrified, for she believes she is trapped and unable to escape from said basement. Presumably, her fear has caused her to overlook said aboveground large bay window at which she is looking directly and therefore should have noticed. Also, said window is wide-open in the middle of a thunderstorm, despite this being an area of the house no one has visited in years, implying the window is kept wide-open year-round, even though the mansion is located in Maine. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how you make a damn fine TV show.
