Trivia

The character of Johnny Ventura had made sporadic appearances during the second season, assisting the leads in their pursuit of some antiques. He also appeared as a guest star in the third season premiere which essentially served as a bridge between the two periods in the series (before and after the departure of John D. LeMay). After the third season premiere, actor Steven Monarque became a full time regular and was credited in the opening titles. Therefore John replaced Ryan as the third member of the investigators of cursed items. See more »

Goofs

In the first few episodes of season 1 the shot of the Curious Goods store front has the same woman dressed in white walk by and stop to look in the store window. See more »

Quotes

Ryan: So much for the official story. Now what really happened?
Micki: It was scarecrow come to life! It had a leather mask on and was holding a handle with a blade...what do you calle them? A scythe! He must have just cut her head off.

Terrific sci-fi horror stories with a campy feel
28 August 1999 | by stills-6See all my reviews

Terrific sci-fi horror stories with a campy feel. Some of the episodes are too earnest, but overall a great series. It had the "X-files" feel to it before "X" appeared (some of the plot lines from "X" are directly ripped off from this show and even the theme music is eerily similar).

Especially, if you can, watch the final episodes in which John D. LeMay appears - after he left the show kind of went downhill.
