Trivia

Rashid was a friend of Jack with thorough occult knowledge, who appeared in the first season finale, and the second season premiere. The original intention in the storylines was that Rashid would be incorporated as a regular cast member in the second season. The producers eventually backed out of this plan when they decided that Rashid could not fit in with the other three leads and his background and knowledge of the supernatural realm could not be perceptible by the audience.

Goofs

In "A Cup of Time", Jack poses as a homeless man and removes a toupee from his head after Lady Die gives him the cup. Posing as a homeless man was a spur of the moment decision after he got to the park and realized Lady Die was there, so he wouldn't just happen to have a toupee since he doesn't wear one normally.

Friday the 13th: The Series was a great show!!!!
2 April 2007 | by 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.
