Ash vs. Evil Dead

Not precisely my cup of tea, but I think the show did a good job of translating Evil Dead and Army of Darkness to the small screen.

Sad to see this go so soon, after only half a season. Had an interesting premise, and I was really looking forward to finding out the Why and How of everything that was going on. It has Sam Neill, so give it a go.

Big Dumb Action can be a good thing, and this certainly qualified. A bit repetitive (I mean, they're always in the helicopter), but pleasantly mindless fun.

Well, I must admit that this show was a bit cheesy. More, than a bit, actually. In fact, I would say that an Asiago asteroid striking a brie earth killing all of the cheddar dinosaurs and leaving the wimpy little string cheese mammals to rule the earth is only slightly cheesier than this show. That being said, I kinda liked it.

As I said, the show was quite cheesy. The sets seemed cheep, likely because the cast spent the entire shoot trying to chew their way through it all. There were no real surprises, and no real feeling of risk for the main characters. Nevertheless, the female lead was quite charming and John Larroquette was, as always, fun to watch.

Essentially a Twin Peaks type of show, but people are less quirky and more criminal. By the final episode it's pretty clear that the show is relying on constant twists, and that makes it hard to trust and care about anything that's happening. Not a bad show, just a little flawed. Ended on a cliffhanger, unfortunately, so take that into account before watching.

It's always a pleasure to return to Oz. Nostalgia, if nothing else, will ensure that. While I do have some bias when it comes to animated fair and tend to think of it as for kids only, I quite enjoyed this show. Well written, nicely voiced, great visuals (it's Oz, so that's required), and a tight plot that doesn't waste people's time. Well worth a watch for lovers of Oz, which really should be everyone.

I quite liked the concept of this show. A few criminals putting on white hats and balancing the scales for the little people when the big guys starts leaning on them. Great cast (especially Parker) and watching a heist or con every episode made the show really fun.

Kinda cheesy and not the highest quality, I'm afraid. Diverted too far from the source material for my tastes too. Still, swords and magic are fun, even if you have to shut down the majority of your frontal lobe to watch it.Kinda cheesy and not the highest quality, I'm afraid.

Goren made this show for me. I suppose I like a bit of madness in my shows and he had his share of it. Helped the show transcend the ubiquitous procedural format of the show to a degree.
