YMMV: Friday the 13th: The Series
  • Awesome Music: The atmospheric, suitably creepy, title theme music.
  • The Cameo: Ray Walston as a comic-book creator in "Tales of the Undead".
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Two undeniable ones for Micki occur in "Dr. Jack" where she electrocutes the villain with a defibrillator and "Bedazzled" where she uses a mirror to reflect the burning light of the lantern back at its owner. She's overall clever and resourceful throughout the latter unusual Hostage Situation episode, whether in feigning ignorance, stalling for time while looking for the entrance to the vault (twice!), lying in wait to hit the villain over the head as soon as he opened the vault again, arranging to shock the villain by wrapping exposed lamp wires around the lantern, and having Richie throw it over the railing to make the villain fall.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The compact changing its powers seems to make no sense at first, until one considers what happened in the episode it first appeared in—not only did its owner end up killing herself once she achieved the love she wanted (but which she knew was only compelled and thus not truly hers), but she herself was a lonely and rejected girl whom everyone in her school believed unattractive. Killing herself after achieving her "love" instead of killing the man in question would break the love compulsion curse, and at the same time the death of an "ugly" tragic girl would cast a new curse related to giving beauty and the chance to have a life others would envy.
  • Ho Yay: Ricky and J.B. in "A Friend to the End.''
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: At the beginning of "The Voodoo Mambo", the estate handler and the realtor seem just a bit too smug at kicking out the Villain of the Week from the home of his late father.
  • Older Than They Think: The titular artifact in "The Poison Pen" had powers almost identical to a Death Note.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
  • Tear Jerker: The death of Jack's Old Flame thanks to the trephanator, and especially his farewell to her at the end of the episode.
    Jack: Well, Vi, now you know if there's anything after. Wait a while, darling...maybe we can be together again...after all...
    • Also, the death of Ryan's father in his son's place, and Mrs. Kent becoming the seventh victim to heal her baby with the cursed cradle. Becomes Tears of Joy when we see the baby lived and will be raised by the babysitter who loved her.
  • What Could Have Been: Although never confirmed as a certainty, Word Of God has stated that at various points it was discussed whether or not to have a hockey mask appear in the show, whether as one of the items being sought or a background prop. It was even considered to appear in the very last episode and be unequivocally revealed to belong to Jason Voorhees.
