|Friday the 13th: The Series (Robey, Chris Wiggins, Steve Monarque)|
|John LeMay, Chris Wiggins, Robey|
Watching through modern goggles, the show feels dated and a bit Scooby-Dooish, but for its time it pushed the envelope of broadcast television. The concept was simple, but effective: Cousins Mickey Foster (Robey) and Ryan Dallion (John Lemay) were tasked to track down cursed objects sold by their evil uncle. Most of the episodes were stand alone episodes that revolved around people using these objects for revenge or personal gain. The purveyor of the object typically had to kill or hurt people in order to keep "good" times rolling. The cursed objects were indestructible so the cousins and their trusty mentor, Jack Marshak (Chris Wiggins) and later in the series Johnny Ventura (Steve Monarque), had to lock the objects in their creepy vault underneath their store aptly named "Curious Goods."
