Hey this deserves a bump as the first episode came out and it was awesome. I'm gonna copy paste my response from the current movie /show thing:

I felt like the first episode could have just easily been a a pure sequel to the original trilogy. A lot of television shows are being made as a sequel/remake/spinoff to popular movies (such as Fargo, Hannibal, Shield) but this is the only thing so far that's made me really really happy. The humor was great, it got us back into the universe and introduced new characters pretty well. It also did a great job of mixing the horror and comedy elements; we got the more spooky scene inside the mansion with the new cop and her partner where it's definitely suspenseful but later we got good ol Ash wise cracking and kicking ass. To be able to do this without feeing way too tone def is really hard and I'm glad they were able to pull it off.

I also liked how it went beyond of just bringing ash back to make it an evil dead sequel. It had a lot of those long shots of the evil coming forth and it had slapstick and similar designs. While ash is an amazing character it's good they realiE that evil dead goes far beyond just Ash and there's more subtle components. I absolutely loved it but I'll be really sad if the series goes to poop.

Really liked it, but the CGI was honestly worse then what I've seen from SyFy. Thankfully they shy away from it.

Got a chance to see it, had a fun time. Yeah, the CGI isn't too great but that's not why I'm watching the show. It feels like Evil Dead, just a little more shiny looking. I can't wait for more.

This deserves more than 1 bump and a couple posts. Seriously? No other TK members are watching this show? I loved it. 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.

The first two episodes have been really fun. Hope the rest are too. The CG is pretty bad, yeah, but it's only used in such over-the-top scenes that I dun mind.

This is probably my favorite show on TV right now. As a huge Evil Dead fan, everything about it is perfect and feels like an honest to god continuation of the original Evil Dead franchise. Everything from tone, to humor, to cinematography and camera movements is perfect. The only critique I have is the cgi is pretty awful but that's a small complaint. I can't wait to watch tonights episode.

Fun show. Not great but fun. I'm actually surprised it looks like they're calling back more into events of the original films than I expected them to with an "old friend" of Ash's popping up towards the end. My only real complaint is that some of the gore feels forced and only there just to have it.

Last night's episode was another brilliant one. Lots of callbacks to the films.

Lee Majors has been cast as Ash's dad. And Ted Raimi will be showing up as Ash's childhood friend, Chet Kaminski.

It seems a website is having an error on the pricing on the Blu-ray. $10 for the first season, along with $2 shipping.

Ash Vs Evil Dead

Postby LegendZilla » Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:26 pm

Hey folks,

Anyone willing to discuss this TV-based continuation of the much-beloved horror franchise? I have been watching it for a couple of days now and so far I'm quite enjoying it. What do guys have to say about it?
