Cool
Ryan M. Williams | USA | 09/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm excited to see that the entire series is available in a set now and Amazon is selling it cheaper than the three seasons sold individually. I have fond memories of this show. It was one of the shows that I used to stay up to watch. In the last season it sort of fizzled out but I'd still like to see it again."
Very Good Series

"Now, first off, I admit I went into this series expecting crap. While the production value is mediocre, and the stories have gaping holes in logic, this is quite an entertaining and fun show. I bought my copy of the entire series at a convention for 30 bucks long before it was released on DVD. Mixing the comic book feel of shows like Tales From The Crypt with great anthology stories like Twilight Zone or Night Gallery, any horror or anthology fan will surely enjoy this show. Now, if only the Friday The 13th movies were as good..."
Hey, It Is What It Is!

"I was torn between giving this DVD collection 4 or 5 Stars. This TV show probably won't meet the standards and expectations of many, but I figure anyone who is seriously considering this item for purchase is likely already familiar with Friday The 13th The Series. The show is over 20 years old... it is what it is... in terms of quality and value, I feel it's worthy of a good solid and fair 5 Star Rating. I'll just make a few additional comments.

Currently Amazon's price tag on this item is $90.99 (a savings of $11.48 over buying the 3 seasons individually). It's really not a bad price for 72 episodes (17 disks). One thing you should know is this is NOT a fancy boxed set. There is no collector/storage box or extra DVD full of special features. All this is are the show's 3 individual complete season boxed DVDs, all taped together and sold as a "pack".

As for the show itself, it's practically timeless! Yes, the special effects are cheesy, the story lines are a bit corny... but the show was from 1987-1990. I was in Junior High during that time, and used to watch it with my grandmother, so for me there is a certain sentimental value in watching these episodes again. Oddly enough the show doesn't really seem "dated", EXCEPT for a few minor, but distracting things: All the casual smoking. The lack of cell phones. And the music was TERRIBLE (mostly because they didn't pay for the rights to any commercially popular music... you get what you pay for, and in this case, it's crap).

It's been fun watching the episodes in the order they were broadcast because there is a very subtle sense of continuity with the back story of the characters from episode to episode. This is something I never really picked up on before as the show was syndicated, and many of the episodes I caught in re-runs. Also, I never fully understood the transition from Ryan to Johnny at the end of season 2 and start of season 3. Now I get it! It's easy to see how Friday The 13th The Series didn't survive season 3. As effect technology slowly improved, the stories didn't. It lost its charm... BUT, it was good while it lasted, and I have no regrets at all in spending nearly a hundred bucks on this set.

A Must Have for Any Friday the 13th Series Fan

"I remember when Friday the 13th The Series first aired on TV on Saturday nights. I always have wanted the complete series, and this DVD package was just what I was looking for. Reading some of the previous reviews about some of the stories being "too dark", you have to remember that a lot of the stories occured during the night, and this is how the series was filmed."
