Controversial when it first aired for the level of violence in the series, which pushed the envelope for the time and shocked some viewers. Crusaders campaigned against it, some mistakenly believing it was an extension of the movie series. Two other syndicated series of the period, "Freddy's Nightmares" and "War of the Worlds" were also criticized for violence. In the long run, sex and violence on mainstream and cable TV caught up and outran them, and in retrospect these once-controversial shows now seem tame and restrained. See more »

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.
