So this week I’ve finally finished watching “Ash vs. Evil Dead – Season 1”. The continuation from the Evil Dead trilogy starring Bruce Campbell who reprises his role as Ash. I wanted to watch this show but I don’t have the Starz channel. Now I’ve bought the PS4 system, I’ve bought this show from the Playstation Store and watched it on there.
“Ash vs. Evil Dead – Season 1” was surprisingly amazing. Some of you know that I’m a pretty big Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead fanatic. I’ve always have been. Loved the Evil Dead trilogy for years. Now the continuation or “sequel” is finally here with Bruce back as Ash finally.
This show is every Evil Dead fan’s dream. It sticks to the same horror & comedy format. So it is both scary and funny at the same time like the original trilogy. Honestly, this is more “action” then horror ’cause there’s plenty of action scenes in it. Yes, you will see plenty of gore too. You will see a lot of demon fighting too. Ash is older and funnier. Bruce can still kill it as that character. He still does the funny catchphrases and one-liners.
“Ash Vs. Evil Dead” was originally supposed to be “Evil Dead 4” for the big screen but the Raimi brothers couldn’t afford it for the big screen so it went to TV instead. “Ash vs. Evil Dead” turned out to be a great show and it’s a must watch for any horror fan or Evil Dead fan. You will see plenty of flashbacks from Evil Dead 1 & 2 but there are no flashbacks from “Army of Darkness”, though. The store that Ash works in is called “Value Smart” instead of “S-mart” like at the end of “Army Of Darkness”. Not sure why all the changes from Army of Darkness. Is it because of copyright reasons? Probably since “Army of Darkness” was a different studio.
Anyway, “Ash vs. Evil Dead” was fucking awesome and a blast to watch. My only complaint is that the episodes were too short. I don’t agree with a half hour an episode. They need to be an hour long so can Season 2 be an hour long for each episode, please? “Ash vs. Evil Dead” was funny as hell as I had a good laugh watching some scenes. I had to watch this show on the Playstation ’cause I didn’t know where else to watch it. Bring on Season 2 please!
