Trivia

Rashid was a friend of Jack with thorough occult knowledge, who appeared in the first season finale, and the second season premiere. The original intention in the storylines was that Rashid would be incorporated as a regular cast member in the second season. The producers eventually backed out of this plan when they decided that Rashid could not fit in with the other three leads and his background and knowledge of the supernatural realm could not be perceptible by the audience.

Goofs

In "A Cup of Time", Jack poses as a homeless man and removes a toupee from his head after Lady Die gives him the cup. Posing as a homeless man was a spur of the moment decision after he got to the park and realized Lady Die was there, so he wouldn't just happen to have a toupee since he doesn't wear one normally.

decent series
11 March 2002 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite shows of the late '80s. It featured a group of pawn shop owners trying to track down antiques that had been sold from their store. The trick was, these antiques had been cursed, and they wound up in the hands of people who more often than not were less than willing to let them go.

Part of the cursed antiques was, for the most part, they gave something in return when death or something horrible had happened. For example, a bunch of tattoo needles could be used to draw a tattoo on someone, and the tattoo would come to life and kill the person it was drawn on, upon which the owner of the needles would be given great fortune/luck. They wound up in the hands of a compulsive gambler who was in tremendous debt. Or a scalpel(which had once belonged to Jack the Ripper) needed to be recharged by killing someone, upon which it could work wonders during medical operations.

I was hooked (and partly obsessed) with this show when it was on, but have been unable to locate it on reruns. If anyone can, please drop me an email!

I look back with fondness at the characters too, with Ryan, the gorgeous Micki, and wise Jack.
