    There are 26 days until Jason's return to theaters with the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake, and as it happens, there are 26 episodes in season two of FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES. Join me every day for the next 26 days as I review a new episode in the series as we countdown to Jason's return and the release of the second season of this cult series on DVD. I'll be updating my review formal with a new episode critique each day, so keep checking back to see all that transpires in everyone's favorite haunted antique shop, Twisted Goods. Mirrors, violins, and even beehives - no artifact is safe on Friday the 13th!

    FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES - SEASON TWO comes out February 10th, 2009 with a retail price of $49.99.

    Look forward to the reviews,Rhett,always liked this show.With TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE looming too it looks like 80's TV horror is hitting DVD at a faster clip now.I wish someone would issue DARKROOM,but I guess that one's not well known enough for a big company to bite on.

    Yeah, I'm excited for TFTD, too. I just wish Warner would smarten up and release THE HITCHHIKER in proper seasons rather than the best-of collections.

    What about Freddy's Nightmare's? That needs a dvd release too. I hope the remake causes this to happen.

    Can't wait for this, and Tales From the Darkside. Monsters would be another series that would be great to own.

    I think the themes you guys come up with for this site are awesome. The 31-movie-a-day -octoberthon of course kicks all sorts of unsightly ass, but this one is pretty cool as well. You should do more of these, they're fun! Long live horrorwatchamacallit.com, yay! :D

    Looking forward to the new movie and season 2 of F13. Someday I'll get to the last couple discs of season 1, I was on such a roll but then all kinds of other shit to watch started rolling in from the library, the torrent sites, the theaters, and cable. Then I go on a trip, then the holidays, then playoff football... someday Robey, we will be together again.:D

    Hey Angelman, who's your friend? I did profiles for the the first season on dvdprofiler so I probably at least know him by name.

    I'm a fan of this series too and have been enjoying reading these episode reviews. Not quite finished watching Season 1, though I must say the "Faith Healer" episode directed by David Cronenberg was pretty extreme tv viewing for its time. I will definitely be buying Season 2 and should have the first season wrapped up by then.

    I'm glad there's some interest here, because I'm certainly having fun with the series. There are a few really classic episodes. The one I watched today was a real stinker, though. Maaaaaaan. That one should be up in three days.

    Season 3 is where Ryan left and was replaced by Johnny. I think they went downhill that year.

    am about halfway thru the first season

    simply put, i was quite disappointed with the first DVD, all those episodes are quite fun, but to me the memory of this from all those years back wasn't really fulfilled, with a level of horror and spookiness that matches Scooby Doo

    then, the second DVD, contained some better episodes, a bit more dark

    now i've started the 3rd DVD and Tales Of The Undead and Scarecrow were great, as if they were from another show altogether, i cannot explain the shift

    of course, Cronenberg's episode was superb, really intense, really sad that he only directed 1 episode

    more importantly, those 3 episodes sold me, so i hope the rest of season 1 and 2 continue on this high level
