    I watched the first episode last night. Kinda enjoyed it. I have no great love for Evil Dead or Army of Darkness. I have seen Army of Darkness, but I don't think I've ever seen Evil Dead.

    I will probably continue watching. See how things go. Not really sure how they can turn this into a series, but that probably gets said about a lot of shows.

    Watched the first episode. Really liked it. Not sure if it's the budget or on purpose, but I like that the special effects and makeup are cheesy.

    I'm still enjoying it. The over the top blood spray cracks me up. The side-kick dude makes me think Napoleon Dynamite for some reason. He plays the goof quite well. :D

    This week was pretty good. I think I'm going to like the ensemble.

    Finished the season out today.

    Generally, I think it's exactly what it should have been, positioned atmospherically somewhere between ED1/ED2 and Army of Darkness -- a bit cheesier than ED1/ED2, but not as silly as Army of Darkness. It's the perfect vehicle for Bruce Campbell to show off his particular shtick.

    It does get a little repetitive after a while though.

    My main complaint of the final two episodes:

    I really liked the cop, I had hoped she was a series regular. As soon as she and Ash started to hint at romance, her time was done though.

    I can't wait for Season 2. I hope season 1 comes out on UHD BD. I will be purchasing it if it does.

    Finished season one last night and loved the wrap-up. Perfect set-up for season 2. Loved that Ash called Pablo "Pedro" (Napoleon Dynamite reference). And the "Asian babies freak me out" line made me chortle for some reason.

    Will gladly keep watching. Candy for the mind. :D

    Same here.

    For some reason Ash's fixation on Jacksonville cracks me up.

    We're binging season 2 now. Still hilarious! Loved the guest star turn by Lee Majors... the discussion about Ash's "bionic" hand was excellent.

    Oh Damn! No Starz for me with my current package with FiOS. I'm also dying to see Counterpart. Maybe it's time to add it.

    STARZ is worth it for AvED and Counterpart.

    Which is ironic, considering the thread you're in... ;)

    Just get it through Amazon or Roku and use their app. The quality is much better from the Amazon or Starz app than what you see with FiOS. FiOS quality has really gone downhill the last few years. Plus it's actually cheaper this way than paying Verizon.

    This is what I did a few weeks ago to watch Counterpart and Season 3 of Ash vs. Evil Dead.

    I watched the first episode of Season 3 early afternoon yesterday and really enjoyed it. I just didn't realize that Starz released the episodes so early in the day. I'll need to remember that in the future and watch them on Sunday morning.

    I started watching season 2 and still have the rest of the season on my DVR. Not sure how interested I am in watching any more of this show.

    I'm gonna wait 'til Counterpart is done and binge it during the free trial. It's $8.99 via Amazon. I think it's $12.99via FiOS.
