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 »

I loved/love this show. In fact, it's one of my top 10 favorite shows of all time, and I can still remember every Saturday night anxiously awaiting to see another exciting episode of Friday the 13th: The Series. The premise about the cursed objects and the supernatural made the show very interesting. But, what I LOVED MOST OF ALL about the show was the wonderful camaraderie and great relationships between Micki, Ryan, and Jack. They were like family. I loved Ryan and Micki's playful, flirtatious, sweet, tender, special, and very close friendship. They were so fun to watch and also would have made a great romantic couple. In fact, I've always felt that Ryan had a crush on Micki. And I loved how Jack was like a father to both Micki and Ryan. I had always found Ryan and Jack's father-and-son/best friends relationship to be a great contrast, since Jack was somewhat serious, and Ryan was more carefree and had a great sense of humor. Ryan, Micki, and Jack really made a great team, and had some of the best chemistry I've ever seen on television. I thought they really balanced each other out perfectly.
I was very disappointed and upset when Ryan (John D. Lemay) left. The show just wasn't the same for me, and I lost interest.
This show has always held a very special place in my heart, and I would love to buy the show on DVD.
I also would love to see Ryan, Micki, and Jack together again in a reunion movie. That would be wonderful!! The Ryan, Micki, and Jack friendship is what made the show for me, and I especially loved the Micki and Ryan relationship. I wanted them to hook up so badly, since they were only cousins by marriage, and not blood-related.
