Here's something to scream about: Friday the 13th's second season is even better than the first, with more hell to pay as Micki (Robey) and Ryan (John D. LeMay), proprietors of the Curious Goods antiquities shop, race against time to reclaim the cursed objects sold to an unsuspecting public by their late Uncle Jack. The macabre fun of this Canadian horror anthology series--related to the slasher film franchise in name only--is that it cloaks even the most innocent objects with a palpable sense of dread. In "And Now the News," an unscrupulous doctor uses an old radio to scare sanitarium patients to death. In "The Playhouse," abused siblings placate their sanctuary by sacrificing neighborhood children to it. In "Read My Lips," a boutonniere brings a ventriloquist's dummy to knife-wielding life. This is one of the season's best episodes, with scary Billy Drago (Frank Nitti in Brian DePalma's The Untouchables) as the obsessed ventriloquist, and the great John Byner as a struggling entertainer, whose own dummy gives new meaning to the show business cliché, "Death is easy, comedy is hard." The episode, "Wedding Bell Blues" introduces Steve Monarque as the streetwise, cocksure Johnny Ventura, whom Ryan recruits to help locate a cursed billiards cue that racks up several murders while giving its owner wicked skills at pool (which starts with P and that rhymes with T and that stands for terror). Johnny returns in "The Prisoner," in which he is falsely convicted of killing his father. He will be become a series regular in the show's third, and final, season. A series benchmark is "Tails I Win, Heads You Die," in which Micki falls victim to a coin used by a Satanic cult leader in a plot to resurrect mummified witches. With its compelling stories, grislier violence, and quality kills, Friday the 13th's sophomore season elevated a guilty pleasure into a superior creepshow. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars For Those Complaining about Video Quality May 13, 2009
The reason the show looks the way it does is because of the era. Many shows in the '80s were shot on film and then edited on videotape, which gives it that fuzzy look. It's a lot easier to restore film than video. It's sad it looks this way, but that's just the way it is. Some of you have mentioned that Twin Peaks is amazing restoration - that's because it was shot and edited on film.

I wish the show looked better, but I'm still happy to have them, especially since I never thought Paramount would release them. Be honest: Did you ever think this would be released?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series February 19, 2009
I almost didn't watch this when it first came out, thinking it was associated with the slasher films of the same name. Nothing could be farther from the truth! These episodes are great thanks to the overall plot and the excellent scripts. The special effects might seem simple when compared to today's products but I think it has the positive quality of making sure they aren't over-done. I look forward to watching more of these in the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV from North of the border... April 12, 2009
Verified Purchase
I used to watch this show weekly when I wasn't doing anything more important and I enjoyed it quite a lot. With the lack of quality programming nowdays this has become a classic. Chris Wiggins reminds me so much of Donald Pleasence...either of those two could have played Jack Marshack, and either could have played Dr. Loomis (Halloween). I might be getting off-track here, but let me say that I consider Louise Robey to be quite a beautiful woman. I cannot imagine any other female taking her place in this program. The director may have gone a bit overboard with some of Robey's outfits in the first season, but that didn't detract from her beauty; and in the second season the outfits were all very tasteful. I won't list favorite episodes since I consider all of them to be great and I don't want to detract from the entire package. I have bought the first two seasons already and I hope the third season is also released since the only other way of getting it is to buy the whole set from the bootleggers. I don't want to rebuy seasons one and two just to get season three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome series March 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
This is one of my all-time favorites shows ever. I'm so thrilled that it has finally been released on DVD. This second season set was remastered MUCH better than the first season. The picture quality is very good, some episodes I would say are almost perfect. It is definitely a big step-up from the first season release. I also think the 2nd season's episodes were better, they seemed more polished and well-written. Let's hope that the 3rd season gets released real soon!

I remember staying up late on Friday nights to catch the show. It is still as good as I remember it to be. Stories were good and the cast really worked well together. Still have a crush on Robey...

4.0 out of 5 stars Curious Goods Revisited September 1, 2009
It's been ages since I last saw this great little horror series on TV, but the entertainment value still holds up on a DVD format. It's a shame that the "Lewis Vendredi pact with the devil" introduction to each episode was omitted, along with any interesting bonus materials for this re-release.
The premise of recovering cursed antique's is a clever one, and the 1989 special effects are still very effective for supporting the story line.
The price for one entire season was reasonable, and the picture quality acceptable.
I would recommend this product and will probably buy the other two seasons.
