In the recent popularity of pawn shop reality series, it’s time for the remake of “Friday the 13th: The Series”. “Friday the 13th: The Series” aired for three seasons in the fall of 1987 until spring 1990. It was a supernatural drama about owners of an unusual antique store. The owners specialized in recovering cursed items. These antiques unleashed evil upon unknowing customers.
Cousins Micki Foster (Louise Robey) and Ryan Dallion (John D. LeMay) inherited the vintage antique shop from a deceased uncle. Their uncle made a deal with the devil to sell possessed antiques in exchange for prosperity, fame and immortality. Later the uncle recanted which led to dire consequences. A researcher and friend of Micki and Ryan named Jack Marshak (Chris Wiggins) was an expert of the occult. He helped in their acquisition of the evil relics.
The revamped “Friday the 13th: The Series” would be a viewing pleasure to television fans of the speculative fiction genre. They would enjoy the atypical blending of a pawn shop with the supernatural. Also, a new generation of potential fans would be introduced to “Friday the 13th: The Series”. Anyone purchasing a second-hand novelty will think twice.
Please note there is no relationship between movies with similar titles and the television series. If “Friday the 13th: The Series” is new to you or if you are a fan feeling the nostalgia, good news is here. The entire three seasons of “Friday the 13th: The Series” may be purchased on DVD from Amazon.com. Reliving the memories of “Friday the 13th: The Series” is nice, however making new memories with a modernized version is better.
