Friday the 13th: The Series was a great show!!!!
2 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
