John D. LeMay's Final Episode
F13th: The Series was fresh--with a fresh cast and guest stars every week. The storyline where John D. LeMay left the series has me shaking my head in disbelief to this very day. I think I speak for lots of faithful fans, we were made to feel total disbelief when Ryan regressed to a 10 year old boy. The ending to LeMays' storyline did everything but tie things in a neat package. If anything, it turned lots of fans away. Steve Monarque didn't have a chance. And we can thank the execs of Friday the 13th: The Series for that.

Having said all that, I'd still watch the series from beginning to end. When it was good--it was VERY good!! Need I say more?

Ryan: So much for the official story. Now what really happened?
Micki: It was scarecrow come to life! It had a leather mask on and was holding a handle with a blade...what do you calle them? A scythe! He must have just cut her head off.


Goofs

Although no geographical location is ever given during the run of the series, it was clearly meant to be set in the US, with such things as American currency being used in any scene that involved money, and in one episode, a character saying something about being "in America." Even so, there were often things shown in scenes that clearly identified the location as Toronto, where the show was filmed, or Canada in general. Well known Canadian landmarks such as Casa Loma and part of the Toronto skyline, showing the recognizable Royal York hotel were seen, a train boxcar is shown with the word Canada written across its length in large letters, and vehicles also had Ontario license plates. While most outdoor scenes were kept non-descript, there were several scenes throughout the run of the series where the trio was driving along Yonge Street in Downtown Toronto, which is one of the most recognizable areas of Toronto. Americans who had never been to Toronto would likely recognize the area, just as Canadians recognize well known areas of New York and LA seen in TV shows, even if they have never been there before. These are just a few examples, but there are others as well.
