A slightly above average start to what would become a beloved cult classic TV show

Michelle 'Micki' Foster (the delectable Louise Robey) inherits a curious antique store with her cousin, Ryan Dallion (John D. LeMay) from their Uncle Lewis. At first Micki merely wants to sell the business and be done with it so she can go back to her lawyer fiancé, but after Lewis's old friend, Jack (Chris Wiggins) shows up in the dead of the night to tell the tale of how good Uncle Lewis made a deal with the devil & that all the antiques are actually cursed, the three of them must get all of the sold items back into the store's basement vault where they can't harm anyone. They begin their search with a demonic doll whom they had inadvertently sold to a father for his daughter.

This was a fairly solid series premiere episode. It did a good job at introducing the main characters and felt intrigued by the overall plot. This series was amongst my favorites as a kid so perhaps my opinion on it might be a tad biased, but I'll concur that this is still not one of the series better episodes (the doll isn't as scary nor as mystical as some of the later antiques, the kid wasn't easy to relate to in the least as she was a total brat). If you watch this and like it, there's good news, the series only gets better from here.

My Grade: C+
