It's very digital and modern-TV-esc, but despite those run-of-the-mill shortcomings, the characters are interesting, the pacing is fun and suspenseful, the story is clearly open to becoming increasingly dense (and thus more interesting), and there are enough weird camera angles and supremely fucked-up SFX to make it a faithful part of the Evil Dead saga. I wish Sam was directing more than just the pilot, but I am totally game for wherever they wanna take this. The music and editing were great, and I look forward to what they do with the universe and with Ash's character.
Who knows...by the time they get around to season 2 they may even have sorted out the legal issues with referencing Army of Darkness. But... we as Godzilla fans know not to hold our breath over legality struggles.
At the risk of sounding like an idiot... and despite the skeptic that I am... the new show genuinely strikes me as... groovy.
Yeah I'm surprised more people here aren't watching it/commenting on it.
The first episode was absolutely amazing; second wasn't as good but still very good. I expected this but if the show continues at the level of the second episode then it'll be fine and I'll still love it.
What I really like is the show can make a lot of mundane things very funny. I loved the dinner scene and its something that hasn't been done before. What this show is doing for the series is bringing the deadites into the modern world: it's no longer like the deadites and ash are fighting in a remote location where bystanders aren't caught. It makes for interesting scenarios and it makes me more and more curious where the series will take us.
Also in glad Pablo isn't annoying. I got worried he'd be a too jokey sidekick but he's fine and allowed for some great dialogue between him and Ash. I just want to see now how he develops and what he'll do beyond Ash fanboy.
