    No spoilers.

    So, I finally got around to watching the season opener to this new series. Thought it was just alright. The humor seemed a little too forced and I couldn't get over the feeling of "been there, done that" before. I'm still holding out hope it will improve as time goes on. Bruce Campbell is always worth watching, so there's that.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for the thread, I was about to do one

    It was really great, but I heard that the next episodes will only be 30 minutes which would suck :(
    I taught the latino guy would be a bitch but he is a warrior!!!!

    10/10 Bruce is the man!!!

    It was renewed for a second second before the first episode by the way,

    I was disappointed that it was a TV series. I would have been fine with it being another movie. I have a hard time commiting to the shows I already watch, much less adding another one.

    I actually liked it. I like Ash is a bit of a sleaze, and it is his time again. The sidekicks are pretty much perfect.

    It ain't brain surgery. Some comedy + some titties + some zombies. My kind of entertainment.

    the worst it can be is campy, and campy bruce is bruce at his best. i thought it was just what i expected him to do, and much to short an episode.

    Ash himself was definitely more AoD though.

    amazing first episode! I guess they're not going to directly reference 'army of darkness' because of licensing issues, hence ash working at 'value stop' instead of 's-mart'.

    “Ash vs Evil Dead”: Why Doesn’t Ash Work At S-Mart?
    By MrDisgusting on August 14, 2015@bradmiska
    • [​IMG]
      One of the first ever images from “Ash vs Evil Dead,” the upcoming Starz series based on Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead franchise, revealed Bruce Campbell as Ash, alongside Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo).

      What was weird about the image was that it was pegged as a look at Ash with his two fellow Value Stop employees.

      “Value Stop? What about S-Mart?” we collectively asked.

      S-Mart was one of the most memorable locations in the Evil Dead franchise as it was the starting and ending point to Army of Darkness, where Ash gets his trusty “boomstick” and other handy tools.

      During an interview we had with Raimi back in July, he explains the name change to Bloody Disgusting.

      “Because of some licensing issues we no longer have the rights to use the name ‘S-Mart,’ and the same goes along for anything that came out of ‘Army of Darkness’,” Sam told us. “I’m not sure exactly who owns the rights, but we’ve made sure… even gone out of our way… to make sure that will not inhibit the fans’ enjoyment of the show.”

      As many of you may recall, there was some insane legal issues when an Army of Darkness sequel was announced without Raimi’s involvement. There’s been no clarity on what’s actually going on, but it sounds as if that part of the Ash universe will be completely ignored.

      In fact, when we talked to producer Robert Tapert back in April, he eluded to this…

      “’Army of Darkness’ doesn’t exist,” says Tapert before clarifying a bit. “Well, certainly Ash went through a bad experience, but we’re not really referencing it [on the show], specifics from that, but he certainly has that in his memory.”

      The good news is that, when “Ash vs Evil Dead” premieres on October 31st, it doesn’t sound as if this is an issue.​
