OKAY! so they based the show's second season greenlight on a theater private viewing of a load of people, I think they really should have waited until about half way through season 1 to see what the tv ratings are. I'm a MAJOR fan of the evil dead series of films and this is AWESOME news BUT I dunno.. I feel that the shows downfall will be it's overuse of cheesy comedy that had my eyes roll a few times through the pilot, and had me saying to myself "Oooookaay then!". I was really hoping they'd take this show down the "Evil Dead 1" road NOT the comedy-horror of "Evil Dead 2+3".. BUT hey-ho.. it's Ash, i'll take what's given.

and too anyone who will say.. "But that's the way Ash is".. Nope! the first film was by far the best of the three, and he was just an average type of guy that DID NOT use words like "Groovy!" and "Boomstick" and his sole purpose was to survive the craziness and mental breakdown he was clearly going through. The jokes and MANY one-liners came later in the comedy films ED2 and ED3. It's almost like Ash became a TOTAL ASS-JOCK in between the 1st and 2nd encounters with the deadites, which makes me wonder.. would have these films had such a FAN-BASE if they had NOT turned Ash into a chainsaw/shotgun toting overweight jock, cos lets face it, that's what he seems to have turned into from the 2nd film onwards.

In my opinion, Ash vs. Evil Dead does everything right. Instead of going down the "gritty drama" route of shows like The Walking Dead or taking the "straight horror" approach of Fede Alvarez' Evil Dead remake, creators Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell fully embrace the over-the-top goofiness and playful tone of Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, while still delivering the scares of the first film and plenty (and I mean: PLENTY) of gore. The Deadites are frightening, but they're also kind of comical in that they don't look too realistic (don't get me wrong, their make-up is gorgeous, but they don't look like the zombies from George A. Romero's films or The Walking Dead). The production values in general are absolutely great; the writing is in the vein of the first three films (no wonder, since the episodes were mostly written by Sam and Ivan Raimi); the music, the pacing and the direction: really everything just falls into place. It's clear that this wasn't some lazy attempt to cash in on the name of a beloved cult-franchise, but a labour of love for all involved.

@Chuck_Finley .. well if your comparing it to ED2 and ED3 then yes.. it's totally in line with series of comedy, gore, and everything else that makes this a great series. You can't really compare these films and tv show to to other shows like walking dead, Znation, or George R.Romero films because those are zombie films.. Evil Dead deadites are Kandarian Demon Spirits that possesses the host, so it's a possession, full body faculty take over.. lol.. just unfortunately for the possession to happen the person either has to get seriously injured or die for the takeover to happen. Oh man, I just realized i'm MORE of an Evil Dead geek than I realized.. :/

This is an awesome weekly show Ash vs. Evil Dead. I hope there will be more light comedy and tons more practical FX sprinkled with some CGI. It's a winner!
