I went to nyc paley center screening and Q&A for the show last night. The episode was awesome. Gore, horror, slapstick, ash being dumb, ash being badass.

Campbell and raimi were at q&a along with Lawless and other main cast members. Their banter was great.

I love the humor, wacky camera work, and of course Bruce hamming it up like it's his last day on earth.

It can also occasionally be genuinely creepy so that's great too!

Well, this is an interesting tidbit. When asked by EW about possible time travel shenanigans in the series, Bruce had this to say:

Most significant is that last statement. Season 2 might already be green lit.

The best thing about this is that they can just go weird it, and it'll just fit because that's what Evil Dead is. Travel around the world and through time and it'll just work. Ash returning to 1th century England! Ash in the wild west! Ash in World War 2! Ash in modern day Japan! Ash returning to 14 century England! Ash in mythical Greece!

There's absolutely no setting that isn't too weird to put Ash into because there's precedent for it.

He can travel back to the 19th century to a French-controlled island and team up with an American secret agent to kill some French deadites.

They're not crazy about it but they don't hate it either.
Also, first I've heard that Sam Raimi isn't directing all of the episodes, that's kind of disappointing.

STARZ has sent me promotional material for "Ash vs. Evil Dead." It's fake campaign material for Ash running for president. An 'Ash 4 President' pin, a pencil that says "SEVEN INCHES YOU CAN TRUST," a bumper sticker that says "MY OTHER CAR IS A DELTA," a T-shirt with fake blood stains that says "HAIL TO THE CHIEF, BABY" and a campaign sign for the front yard.

Pretty nifty.

I still cruise around in my Ash Williams 2012 shirt pretty frequently. It's inconspicuous enough to be casual wear, and the occasional person asking me about this candidate they never heard of is fun as well.

Previewed the first 4 minutes. Seemed pretty perfect as far as tone goes.

Ash makes up a story about how he lost his hand to pick up a chick at a sleazy bar, ends up banging her in the bathroom, and she turns into a deadite mid-coitus.

Apparently you have to have a cable subscription in order to watch it on Starz.com or AMC.com. There's no season pass available elsewhere for non-cable subscribers. That's pretty poo poo considering the bulk of the show's audience is going to be the internet.

I just finished watching through the movie trilogy for the first time, all over the course of 24 hours. The movies own, and it was interesting how differently the conception of Ash as a character changed between them, even between Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness.

This show looks good, and hopefully it also owns.

Listen up, screwheads!

Tomorrow night at 8 ET, Starz is running the Evil Dead trilogy back to back. That's the original Ultimate Experience in Grueling Horror at 8, its sequel at 9:30, and Army of Darkness at 10:55. And because Starz loves us, immediately following Army of Darkness will be a special showing of Ash vs. Evil Dead at 12:17 AM, Halloween Eve. So mark the date, mark the time, and buckle up for the ride!
