Trivia

Though they share the same title, this series is not linked to the Friday the 13th movie series. The main characters search for magically-cursed objects that were sold through their uncle's store. Reportedly, the last item that was supposed to be retrieved by the characters in the series finale was to be a hockey mask which would undoubtedly have belonged to Jason Vorhees. While the show's crew did play with the idea of having a hockey mask in one of the episodes as an in-joke, there was never any serious intention to tie the film series with the television series.

Goofs

Although no geographical location is ever given during the run of the series, it was clearly meant to be set in the US, with such things as American currency being used in any scene that involved money, and in one episode, a character saying something about being "in America." Even so, there were often things shown in scenes that clearly identified the location as Toronto, where the show was filmed, or Canada in general. Well known Canadian landmarks such as Casa Loma and part of the Toronto skyline, showing the recognizable Royal York hotel were seen, a train boxcar is shown with the word Canada written across its length in large letters, and vehicles also had Ontario license plates. While most outdoor scenes were kept non-descript, there were several scenes throughout the run of the series where the trio was driving along Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto, which is one of the most recognizable areas of Toronto. Americans who had never been to Toronto would likely recognize the area, just as Canadians recognize well known areas of New York and LA seen in TV shows, even if they have never been there before. These are just a few examples, but there are others as well. See more »

Love Friday the 13th The Series!
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I use to watch it every chance we'd get. Unfortunately, we can't seem to find it any where on re-runs.

I'm hoping to purchase the series on DVD, if available, so that we can enjoy it anytime we wish.

All it takes is one episode and you're hooked! We thought it was going to be more of a horror show and were pleasantly surprised it wasn't. It was a cross between the X Files and Twillight Zone.

We can't understand why more people don't know about this wonderful show. Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will make a movie out of the show. I'd go see it!!!
