Default Ash Vs. Evil Dead

Well it finally got premiered last night.

Last night premiere was 40 mins but each one will be 30 min

Reviews are already in and a second series got the green light before the first series premiered.

"El Jefe" · Ash Vs. Evil Dead · TV Review · The A.V. Club

Ash vs Evil Dead Pilot Review: Constant Surprises Surpass All Expectations | Comicbook.com

But on one review somewhere states they dont own the rights to the 3rd film so cant make refferences to it and have to slighter alter things if there is any refferences

Also another review has a small concern

Raimi co-wrote and directed the first episode, but he’s not returning for the rest of the season. Instead Craig DiGregorio (Reaper, Chuck) is serving as showrunner, with a traditional writers’ room and rotating roster of directors taking on subsequent episodes. The show will inevitably find its own voice and cadence, but the glee of Raimi’s hyper-adrenalized filmmaking was always the glue that held the disparate parts of Evil Dead together. The films served as a playground for his cinematic id, and when you pull that from the equation it’s not clear if the oddball mix of horror and comedy can stand on its own at all.

Whats youre thoughts and opinions?

Just finished watching it, absolutely loved it, some real laugh out loud moments in it and plenty of gore, also some nice nods to the original trilogy too

Ive tried googling when shown on british tv cant find anything but this and so far not good
Bad news though for international Dead-heads though, as the show's yet to land a broadcaster in the UK.

You would have thought SOME one in the UK would have been all over it. Even sodding Channel 5!

Starz, the show producers have had no luck selling this overseas apparently and are urging fans in foreign territories to get the show in any way possible...

I've not had a look yet, been too busy this weekend, although I did have time to watch The Godfather but I might have a watch after The Walking Dead has been on later

Fans of The Evil Dead might not like it, but fans of Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness will, I'm sure

two used to be my favourite but as times went on I like the first more, don't get me wrong I enjoyed the pilot but for me some of the comedy was awful and felt forced, I would I liked a more serious tone to the series, but I will continue to watch

It does have Lucy lawless which is always a huge plus for me, so it's nice to see her and Campbell back together
