    This actually looks awesome. I was very skeptical till I saw this.

    I'm ready for more Ash. I didn't know Lucy Lawless was going to be in it!

    Can't fvckin wait! Loved the original movies and I have to say I really liked the (I think) 2012 version as well. Bruce Campbell is awesome.

    I was just wondering the other day what ever happened to that supposed Evil Dead TV series that I heard a rumor about last year...

    ...at last!

    No one understands how unbelievably excited I am for this!

    I expected some comments after the first episode.
    I really enjoyed it, nice pace, nice mood, fun enough.

    I enjoyed the first episode. It was kind of weird watching it on Facebook, though. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the premise is more slapsticky than.
    The fact that he was high.

    I'm not crazy about any of the Evil Dead series, I like the writing but always kind of underwhelmed as a whole; but man, this is really enjoyable. It might have just been the production quality holding them back for me but I'm totally on board with this.

    I enjoyed it. I prefer the horror comedy mix of Evil Dead 2 to Army of Darkness, and this seems to be playing the more Army of Darkness route (it was originally billed as a sequel to it so I was expecting this) but that was a great bit of TV. I am really excited to see where they go with it.

    The CGI stuff was *horrible* but the practical stuff was great. They should have just kept it all practical.

    There was some kind of rights issue with Army of Darkness so they're not allowed to have any direct references to it. Guess it's just as well, since the director's preferred ending of that is the stupid one where he wakes up after the apocalypse.

    Lovin' the show! Just subscribed to Starz yesterday to catch episode 2 on demand, forgot to watch it Saturday. I downloaded the first episode last week to see if I'd like it before subscribing. I think this is one example of success in keeping the feel/mood of the originals, something Hollywood has been failing at so abysmally lately. My only beef is I wish the episodes were an hour long, but I guess with the makeup and effects that would make it more difficult... though the Walking Dead does it.

    Considering how overlong most Walking Dead episodes feel, I think it's a blessing they're this short (not to mention that's the most popular show on TV during its timeslot so they obviously have a lot more budget to work with). I can't really see them sustaining it for a whole season as is, but I hope they do!
