I binged ASH VS EVIL DEAD Season One.
It's entertaining, but make no mistake it's lowbrow. But it's the best kind of Lowbrow. It plays fast and loose with the continuity and it's own internal logic, it has Cheesy special effects even by the standards of this franchise, and I loved every minute.
Bruce Campell has great comedic timing, and strings one liners like the best of the 80's action heroes. I like how it fleshes out Ash's Bravado, gung ho hero personality, and general man-child attitude towards life being a defense mechanism to help him cope with his loss. Which lets face it, you don't survive an encounter with lovecraftian nightmares and don't walk away without a few scars.
I also like the supporting cast of Pablo and Kelly who play Ash's sidekicks. Amanda fisher as Jill the police officer also allows for the series to play its horror shockingly straight. Seeing her and Ash play off each other is like the best of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Also. Blood. Gallons of it, gushing out of people like an Akira Kurosawa film.
I’ll escape now from this world, from the world of Jean Valjean, Jean Valjean is nothing now! Another story must begin!

People say "be yourself" but that's bad advice, if we were all to "be ourselves" many of us would stop wearing clothes. -Chuckman
