Well, I would have liked to enjoyed the day more...did not happen.
But this show is fun. It is one of the many late 80's/early 90's shows that were all over syndicated TV (Remember syndicated TV? Independent TV stations? ...Oh, god. I may just be so old...) At the time there was a fun spate of shows. B5. Highlander. Time Trax. War of the Worlds. The Untouchables. Star Trek: The Next Generation. And more. Never knew what you would find late at night on TV. Good times.
And Friday the 13th was one of the various attempts to create shows based on movies. Instead of a summer camp with a psycho killer, we get a curio shop, 2 young people and a wise old guy, and a mission to hunt down cursed items that all seem to be out to corrupt people and get massive numbers of people slaughtered. From creepy dolls to magic coins to deadly boxing gloves to vampiric cross, the show had fun playing with a variety of threats and adventures.
So tonight, I think I'll give the pilot a watch, The Inheritance. In it the two young cousins, Mickey and Jack find that they've inherited an old shop from their dead uncle. But they find it is not so much a chance for a quick buck, but, instead, they've inherited a curse, which consumed their corrupt uncle.
Luckily some of the show is on YouTube.
Here's Inheritance, if you're interested.
Here's the series normal intro.
Oh, well.
