Ash vs Evil Dead 1.7

  • It’s very impressive how easily the show segues into what is basically a case-of-the-week story without diminishing forward momentum on the story arc. In fact, they did it so well it almost didn’t feel like a detour from the big story. Bodes well for the long life of the series.
  • Aside from that, the episode manages all the comedy and gruesome action we have come to expect. So much blood, so many laughs.
  • And there is even a (very surprising) romance for Ash. Not sure how I feel about that. She’s young and gorgeous, which kinda undermines one of the central joke in the show: Ash’s overconfidence and lack of luck with the ladies. Now suddenly, someone way out of his league actually likes him?!
