The year was 2000 and I was a 15 year old teenager. In the fall of that year, FOX released a show that I fell in love with. The name of that show was FreakyLinks.
FreakyLinks was a horror/sci-fi tv show that starred Ethan Embry, Karim Prince & the late Lisa Sheridan.
The show revolved around Embry’s character Derek and his friends, Chloe & Jason. Together, the three ran a website called FreakyLinks.com. The trio would venture out and investigate different paranormal and supernatural events.
The series came out not long after the hit film “The Blair Witch Project.” Like that movie, this series tapped into the “found footage” craze that was spurred on by TBWP.
Unfortunately for myself and other FreaklyLinks fans, the show was cancelled after just one season. Despite only lasting one season, the show to this day has a cult following.
You can find episodes of FreakyLinks on Youtube! Check them out and let me know what you think.
Authors: Danny B. Gordon & Paul Dellinger Copyright 1988, by the authors Additional Material in Chapters nineteen & twenty, copyright 2022 by the authors.
Book Description: Toward the end of the 1980s, a small Virginia town experienced a wave of UFO sightings. A radio reporter named Danny Gordon found himself at the center of the mysterious happenings-and then had his own encounter.
HFH Review: I really enjoyed this book as it gives several witness encounters of UFO’s in the Wytheville, VA and surrounding areas. The authors give an in-depth look at their own history regarding UFO’s while also giving their own unique experiences working this story in the late 1980’s.
The story around this book was also featured on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries, hosted by Robert Stack.
Rittenhouse Archives is a company that publishes non-sports trading cards such as Star Trek, Game of Thrones & Doctor Who. They have published multiple Twilight Zone edition trading cards but today we will talk about the 2009 50th Anniversary Edition.
A few years ago I purchased an unopened hobby box with 24 packs, 5 cards per pack. The particular box that I purchased was 2570 of 4000 made. The box also promised 4 autographs inside.
After opening the box and packs and then assorting the cards I found that I was able to assemble the complete 79 card base-set. I then made a customized Twilight Zone 50th Anniversary three-ring binder to store the cards. I also received some of the insert cards but not enough to complete the sets.
As promised, I received 4 autographed cards. The cards I received were:
Barbara Perry as Blonde Woman in “The Chaser”
David Macklin as Bud Powell in “Ring-A-Ding Girl”
Linden Chiles as Hall in “Four O’Clock”
Cliff Osmond as Manolo in “The Gift”
Overall this is a neat little set. Each card has a different episode on the front and back which includes the episode title, original airdate and a brief episode description. In my opinion, this is a must for any Twilight Zone fans.
Rittenhouse also has an upcoming release of a new edition of Twilight Zone cards in 2023 with Twilight Zone Archives Expansion
