Brilliant series but nothing to do with Jason and the original Friday the 13th movies, each story as it own making of different artefacts causing horror, the modern day version of this series is Warehouse 13, a great collection and the only bad thing I can say about it is price but otherwise very entertaining.

I first saw this show in the early 1990's on sky tv. I really liked it and waited a long time to get it on DVD. It cost a lot of money and is only available in region 1 format, so it had to come from America. When it arrived, I had to pay import duty of £24 on top of the original price, taking it to over £100. So I was expecting it to be really good. The picture quality is poor, particularly in the really early episodes. I'm disappointed with the quality but the show is still good 20 years on. It would be nice to think the quality could be sorted out and the set reissued in the future.

I remember this boxset from TV in the late 80s. It's just as good now as it was then, the only annoyance was it was region 1 and therefore had to watch on my laptop and not my region 2 DVD player, but I would still recommend it to anyone who has an interest in these spooky kind of programmes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey, It Is What It Is! 31 July 2010
By Jeffrey Michael Kent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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. This is something I never really picked up on before as the show was syndicated, and many of the episodes I caught in re-runs. Also, I never fully understood the transition from Ryan to Johnny at the end of season 2 and start of season 3. Now I get it! It's easy to see how Friday The 13th The Series didn't survive season 3. As effect technology slowly improved, the stories didn't. It lost its charm... BUT, it was good while it lasted, and I have no regrets at all in spending nearly a hundred bucks on this set.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Series.... 14 April 2010
By M. Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great T.V series... 1 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool 8 Sept. 2009
By Ryan M. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm excited to see that the entire series is available in a set now and Amazon is selling it cheaper than the three seasons sold individually. I have fond memories of this show. It was one of the shows that I used to stay up to watch. In the last season it sort of fizzled out but I'd still like to see it again.
