'Ash vs. Evil Dead' Review: A Wonderfully Bloody Excursion Into The Insane

Often, when someone describes a show as “fun,” what the other side hears is, “it’s bad, but it’s so entertaining that it doesn’t really matter.” Most recently, classifications such as this have been ascribed to the likes of Arrow, The Flash and Limitless. However, regardless of what the other side may think, all three of these shows (and others like them) are just as good, in their own ways, as anything else mainstream academy voters put up as “great” television, such as Breaking Bad, Mad Men and the most recent Emmy winner for best drama, Game of Thrones. It is in this vein we must judge Starz’s newest series, Ash vs. Evil Dead.

Thirty years after the events of the Evil Dead film series, Ash Williams is living quietly out of a trailer in Middle America so as to avoid the attention of the evil that once came for his life. However, everything changes the night he “accidently” reads from the Necronomicon and brings the evil to his doorstep. Now, seeing no other option, Ash must suit up one last time in order to translate the book and stop the evil once and for all.

Bar none, Ash vs. Evil Dead is the most entertaining show of the fall. It out-actions The Player, out-joys Limitless and out-paces Scream Queens. Of course, none of that’s surprising given the trailer that was released during San Diego Comic-Con this past summer. Rather, the real question that needs to be answered is: is Bruce Campbell’s return to the role that made him famous “good?” And the answer to that is no… it’s great.
