Excellent show with a creative premise
16 March 2000 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

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.
