Editorial Reviews

The suspense-drama series that brought back the serial horror genre to television features intense psychological terror and chilling suspense. Each eerie episode centers on an unlikely trio who run a shop full of rare and mysterious antiques whose previous owner was killed after making a sinister pact with the devil. The team must race against time and fate to retrieve each diabolically cursed item sold from the hexed store before it unleashes its deadly force.

I was torn between giving this DVD collection 4 or 5 Stars. This TV show probably won't meet the standards and expectations of many, but I figure anyone who is seriously considering this item for purchase is likely already familiar with Friday The 13th The Series. The show is over 20 years old... it is what it is... in terms of quality and value, I feel it's worthy of a good solid and fair 5 Star Rating. I'll just make a few additional comments.

Currently Amazon's price tag on this item is $90.99 (a savings of $11.48 over buying the 3 seasons individually). It's really not a bad price for 72 episodes (17 disks). One thing you should know is this is NOT a fancy boxed set. There is no collector/storage box or extra DVD full of special features. All this is are the show's 3 individual complete season boxed DVDs, all taped together and sold as a "pack".

As for the show itself, it's practically timeless! Yes, the special effects are cheesy, the story lines are a bit corny... but the show was from 1987-1990. I was in Junior High during that time, and used to watch it with my grandmother, so for me there is a certain sentimental value in watching these episodes again. Oddly enough the show doesn't really seem "dated", EXCEPT for a few minor, but distracting things: All the casual smoking. The lack of cell phones. And the music was TERRIBLE (mostly because they didn't pay for the rights to any commercially popular music... you get what you pay for, and in this case, it's crap).

It's been fun watching the episodes in the order they were broadcast because there is a very subtle sense of continuity with the back story of the characters from episode to episode.

Let there be no confusion for those who have never seen this show. This series has nothing to do with the Friday the 13th films. It is about an antique shop who's devil dealing dealer sold evil cursed objects that have to be recovered by his niece & nephew; along with an old friend who also studied the occult.

Just finishing the First Season of this 80's classic. The special effects are very cheesy & low budget. At the same time though it is great due to equally cheesy acting by Robey (the red head). I really enjoyed this show when it was originally on. The title honestly is what grabbed the attention, but once you began watching it you could not stop. You were & still are hooked.

The Sci-Fi Channel has been playing re-runs of this for some time now. This was the only way to really watch it. Luckily we now have it on DVD. The quality of picture is not the greatest, but it does not become a distraction when viewing. The sound is about the same. The music score is exactly the same thankfully. The First Season of HUNTER was recently purchased & they changed the majority of the back ground tunes. All of the 80's classics are gone. The regular score though is still intact. It is surprisingly graphic at times for a television show from the 80's. It is common place now, but for back then this was pretty hard core. Honestly though, the first few episodes were a little dry, but it picked up immediately after. The evil doll episode is still great.

If you were a fan originally when this show first came out then it would be a good idea to purchase this set. It still holds up even as an adult watching it. Get it on sale while you can. Amazon has it pretty cheap compared to other sites. Friday the 13th: The Series - Complete Series Pack

I have started to watch all the episodes of Friday the 13th, the series again since the show went off the air about 23 years ago (as of writing this review). In a typical episode, the trio of Ryan, Micki and Jack try and retrieve a cursed item sold from the antique store they inherited. The cursed items are indestructible, so they are placed in a vault below the store for safe keeping.

There are a lot of great episodes but if I had to pick my favorite one, I'd say "Wedding in Black." Technically there wasn't a cursed item in that episode which would help explain why the Snow Globe broke. Cursed items normally required a human sacrifice in a specific way to receive a benefit which had a theme related to the item.

Most people who used the cursed items met unfortunate ends. A lot of the time revenge or greed fueled the use of the cursed items. Some of the episodes brought up the ethical question of whether it was ever right to use a cursed item. Would it be right, for example, to use a cursed item for revenge against those who tried to rape you and were responsible for you being completely paralyzed? There were even a couple of times where the trio tricked the bad guy into using the cursed item to help them out or used the cursed item themselves.

Friday the 13th, the series was a fantastic series. Absolutely worth getting.

The only bad thing about this series is it died without a closing finalle that would have made this Friday the 13th an awesome collectors edition. Unfortunately the series just drops off a cliff with the last episode no closure at all. However that said this is still a set worth owning. Friday the 13th had some awesome and funny things in it that had to be recovered. Oh yeah this is not Friday the 13th that tracks from the movies of the same namd. This Friday the 13th references a anitique shop was run by what I can only call a satanist. Anyway the shop ower somehow ran afoul of his master and he, his shop and everything in it was cursed. The sick twisted shop owner meets his demise sort of since he makes a few reappearances during the three season run. He returns as the incarnation of evil each time he visits. It appears he becomes one of satans many stooges.

Anyways good people inheirit this shop and make it their business literally to recover all the cursed objects sold by mistake and on purpose in the past. Each cursed object does something wonderful at first or so it appears but each object demands a repayment that is far more distructive than the good thing granted. You get to see how otherwise good people and bad people get corrupted by the cursed objects. Once you see one of these episodes and know the formula the rest of the episodes will never shock you much. A few episodes have what might be called happy endings but most end with the possessor of a cursed object getting their cummupence. Some even richly deserve their vile end.

The video quality is generally very good. Thwe scenes are nice clear and crisp. The color and saturation is generally very good. The sound is very good about an 8 out of 10 in both audio and video quality. Packaging is good.
