Show Notes

It's time to wrap up Paramount's original run with the Friday the 13th franchise. And while the potential to tell some interesting stories was there, they certainly failed to deliver. Get ready to suffer through parts 7 & 8! It's Friday the 13th: The Episode, Part 5!

First up, it's Jason versus Carrie! But her name is Tina. And her mother's 80s hair is absolutely intolerable. Thankfully, Kane Hodder, in his first appearance as Jason, hates her hair, too. Gear up for a sleeping bag bashing good time, as frog-face Jason takes on a telekinetic teenager! It's Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)!

And then from there, Jason somehow sails a yacht out of Crystal Lake, to the mountainous Atlantic shoreline of New Jersey! What? And then he takes Manhattan, of course. For all of about three minutes. Set a course for adventure, in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)!
