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

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?

When FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES debuted in 1987 it wasn't exactly bright on my radar. I was aware of it, and even saw an episode I thought was very good ("Doctor Jack"), but until recently I'd forgotten the show ever existed. When a friend of mine mentioned it in passing early this year, I had a sudden, inexplicable desire to buy the first season on the spot, and so I did...and boy am I glad, because I haven't had this much fun with a TV show in a long, long time.

FRIDAY THE 13TH was produced by Frank Mancuso, Jr., the same guy who brought us the notorious slasher films of the same name, so you could be forgiven if you thought this was a biopic of Jason Voorhees set in Crystal Lake. Actually it has nothing to do with the hockey-masked killer, but is an entirely different story, albeit very much in the horror vein. Here goes:

Lewis Vendredi (R.G. Armstrong) made a pact with the devil. In return for wealth and immortality, he agreed to sell to the unwary customers of his antique shop items which had been cursed by Satan. When Vendredi tried to go back on the pact, he is sent to hell and the shop was left to his niece Micki Foster (Louise Robey), and her cousin by marriage Ryan Dallion (John D. LeMay). The two clueless relations are quickly educated as the true nature of the store's stock by a former business partner of Vandredi's named Jack Marshak (Chris Wiggins), who had no idea the items he was selling Lewis were being used in such an evil manner until it was too late. Renaming the shop Curious Goods, the three of them set out to recover each of the more than 200 cursed items in circulation and place them in safekeeping so that they can do no more damage.

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!

Glad to complete my collection of Friday the 13th: The Series with season 2! Cheesy acting, flimsy plot lines, and terrible F/X… but as anyone who's read my previous reviews will know I love this sort of thing! Louise Robey is resplendent in 80's hotness, and the stories are interesting even if they ask you to seriously suspend disbelief. The last season with Ryan as Mickey's (Louise Robey) sidekick, which makes it the last really good season in my book. Worth a watch, especially if you're a fan of cheesy 80's stuff, and if you can stomach the $9 price! Love this one.

The writers of this series really came up with some great little hair-raising stories to creep you out with on this season of Friday the 13th the Series. Some of these episodes are so good that they are better than some full-length Horror movies that I have seen. Just a lot of really entertaining and spooky, thought-provoking, edge-of-your-seat little thrillers.

Louise Robey, Chris Wiggins, and John D. LeMay all return to play Micki Foster, Jack Marshak, and Ryan Dallion, a trio of antique dealers who face many deadly challenges in their attempts to collect the cursed relics that their evil uncle Lewis Vendredi unleashed upon the world with his unholy pact with the Devil.

This series was so good that it's hard to believe that it only ran for 3 seasons?

The product is advertised as having subtitles but there aren't any, which is pretty unfortunate given the poor sound quality. There isn't a "play all" feature, which would've been nice, but you get what you pay for and I got the episodes I wanted

I have always just loved this series. I wondered if I still would all of these years later. Yes I still do. The curiosity shoppe is still just as fascinating. Great hokey story lines and very like able characters. This is nothing like the movie of the same name.
