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.

I was a big fan of this show when it was in first-run syndication, and I'm glad to see the Sci-Fi channel is still playing it. As much as I love "The X-Files," "Friday the 13th: The Series" gets extra points for coming first (by six years!) and actually remaining consistent. It's too bad it was so short-lived--I think it would have lasted longer and only gotten better if John D. LeMay had not left. The guy who replaced him was just not as cool, and the show suffered for it. The best episodes were in the second season, before Ryan met his strange fate (at least they didn't kill him off completely, though perhaps that would have been more honest!). All in all this is definitely one of my favorite TV series of all time.
