The latest "me too" show to turn up on the summer roster of the Syfy channel showcases John Zaffis in a strange hybrid of American Pickers and Ghost Hunters.  The premise of Haunted Collector kind of reminds me of the hit 1980s TV series Friday, the 13th.  In fact, Zaffis and his cohorts even sort of look like Chris Wiggins and the other cast members from the 80s series.  Anyone else think that's intentional?

Right on!  :D  There's a strange theme at work here.  Anyone remember Warehouse 13's Saul Rubinek in his role as Fazio, the "Collector" of rare intergalactic items, in an episode of Star Trek:  The Next Genreation?

LOL! The resemblance is striking. They really do look like the cast of the 80's television show "Friday the 13th - The Series". I believe that's John's daughter and son in that picture.

I rediscovered a few episodes of "Friday the 13th - The Series" when we moved into our house. I was amazed those old VHS tapes were still in decent shape after 20 some odd years. They finally released the show on DVD last year, and I broke down and bought all three seasons. It's cheezy but I still like them for some strange reason. ;D

I caught an episode of Haunted Collector and actually thought it was intriguing. Yes, I admit it. I still watch paranormal TV.  :)

I dvr'd it and watched my first episode.  I think it's pretty good.  They do need to dial the cheezy music waaaay down though.  Hopefully that will come in time.  I know Zaffis does a lot of wonderful work and helps so many people.  I think his intentions are pure and from what I know of him, they will probably stay that way.  I just hope it doesn't end up changing him like so many others that have gotten into these types of programs/reality tv/etc.

p.s. If you are recording this, make sure you set your dvr to record one minute over.  I learned this already.   :(

I thought that Friday the 13th was a awesome show. These people do look sterotypical from the series.
Sounds interesting...Go on.
