Trivia

In total there were four episodes dealing with time travel. It was an artistic choice for the past scenes to be filmed either in colored photography or in black and white. Two of these episodes, specifically the "Friday the 13th: The Series: The Baron's Bride (1988)" where Micki and Ryan travel back to Victorian London and "Friday the 13th: The Series: Hate on Your Dial (1989)" where Jack and Johnny go back to 1954 in some racist south state, are shot in black and white. The other two episodes, specifically "Friday the 13th: The Series: Eye of Death (1989)" where Ryan travels back to the Civil War between North and South and the last episode of the series where Micki goes back to Europe of the 18th century retain the colored photography.

Goofs

Excellent Horror for TV
22 February 1999 | by GislefSee all my reviews

Friday the 13th was one of Paramount's first entries into first-run syndication (it began the same year as Star Trek/Next Gen), and it quickly proceeded to find its late-night niche. In terms of horror and on-screen gore, it was remarkably graphic. At the same time, it maintained a strong sense of internal continuity, gave us several well-developed main characters, and after a rocky start, weekly presented an imaginative and interesting "cursed" antique. It can still be seen regularly on the Sci-Fi Channel.
