I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I've seen the first two episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead, and they're everything you want them to be, and maybe a little more.
What on earth could possibly keep you from watching the first four minutes right now? You really don't have anything better to do.
You see, Ash has rolled into middle age. And he's fighting it with all the passion and charisma he'd normally save for the deadites.
Just when you think he's about to strap on his trusty chainsaw, you discover he's climbing into an elaborate cinch waist girdle. Does Bruce Campbell really need it?
Hell no. But he sells putting it on like nobody else could, almost as much as he sells dancing while drinking a High-C juice box.
Middle age has also brought to Ash Williams a brutal life of living in a silver torpedo trailer and trolling for skanky women to celebrate heroic act 30 years ago in which he lost his right hand, no replaced with a lovely rosewood, hand-crafted, of course.
But if Ash has given up the life, why does the woman he's pounding in the bathroom of the local watering hole turn to him with the face of a deadite? Certainly one Moscow Mule doesn't take down our hero that quickly.
Did he even have time to drink it?
That's just a hint that there's a whole lot more at play on Ash vs Evil Dead, and Ash is about to step right back into the life he left behind. What does it mean? Can his current body and lifestyle sustain the beating he used to take fighting them off? Does he even have the trusty chainsaw anymore?
That's just a little of what you'll find out when you watch the premiere on Halloween night, this Saturday, October 31 at 9/8c. Don't miss it!
