Evil Dead the tv series on STARZ - Page 12

post #551 of 638

Likewise with me, these episodes were giving me the strongest feeling of Deja vu and that's when it dawned on me.  Me and my friends used watch the behind the scenes videos after completing the game of the voicing sessions all night, cracking up.  Ted made the weirdest faces...

Just got caught up. Why!
post #553 of 638

So...anyone else need counseling services or was that just me curled up into a ball last night cryin’ their eyes out? In the meantime what’s the over/under they stick with this and move forward or try to retcon it at a later date? Maybe the season finale involves Ash entering a time vortex and finding himself in a post-apocalyptic future with familiar faces like the alternate ending to AOD? Also can I say how much the end credit soundtrack is killing it, I seriously want a comp of that shit.

 

The previews for the next episode looked seriously demented and/or surreal, too bad we have to wait till the 4th for it.

Pablo has been a great character, dopey and sweet and noble with lots of great lines. Santiago made him so memorable, and from a writing perspective the death really hurts because you could see how much horizon still stretched in front of him... a future with Kelly, gradually becoming more of an equal to his Jefe, and also perhaps a chance to mature to the point of maybe even questioning him. Then BOOM. 

post #558 of 638

I understand...also is it me or did Pablo look a little jacked to anyone else.  Like has he been working out or something?  I mean normally he wears layed clothing so you can't really tell but in the end there he looked pretty buff. In honor of a fallen dream I shall have fishsticks & french fries (you try finding a pub in the middle of podunk squared) tomorrow for dinner while working on my old Amiga.

Pablo has looked jacked for a few episodes now.  But that ending?  WOW.

post #560 of 638


I guess you could say that Pablo's half the man he used to be....

post #561 of 638

TOO FUCKING SOON FETT! The wound is still fresh. :( :( :( :( :( :( 

 

Yeah, they've been alluding to Pablo dying pretty much all season so while I was expecting it it still hit like a ton of bricks. Such a great character that will be deeply missed. 

 

Still, this episode was another in a long line of showing just what a fucking champ Kelly is. Geez, I love this badass. And she really is up for ANYTHING, god that piss tray.

 

And props to the show for turning Ash into a proper slasher character for at least an episode. 

post #562 of 638
You got some guts kid. You got some real guts.

So... thats the end for Baal and Pablo? Well it was a good run, but I have no more reason to watch without my strong vagina on the show anymore.

Screw being able to buy an actual Ashy Slashy puppet. I want a plush Pablo that wears a shirt saying "I am such a Strong Vagina".
post #563 of 638

SPOILER ALERT...DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU

 

 

 

 

Since Baal is the god of mindfuckery in this universe what if...well you don't have to be Bobby Ewing to see where this train of thought is going.  Also I don't know if you've seen the previews from earlier in this season but there is a brief flash and you'll miss it shot of Baal and Ash 'saw dueling in the cabin that hasn't shown up in a episode yet...just sayin.

I was surprisingly affected by that ending.

I've grown pretty attached to our trio of leads, and as great as Bruce has been, this series is not the one-man-show I assumed it would be when it started last year.  I like Kelly and Pablo a lot, so this stings.  I'm also thinking (hoping?) Cheepnis might be right that this is some kind of misdirect or fake out.

They said they were going to address Army Of Darkness this season so im guessing that's the ep.

post #567 of 638

From Wiki-

'episode #9 "Home Again" December 4, 2016

Distraught over the loss of Pablo, Ash and the gang attempt to travel back in time to ensure that young Ash will never see the Necronomicon.

episode #10, season finale "Second Coming" December 11, 2016'

no episode description.

Ray Santiago's IMDB page lists him in 18 episodes, starting in the first show.

The death episode of last week was the 18th episode. There's 10 shows per season.

post #568 of 638

On one had FU for making me feel this way only to start over but then on the other hand...Hurry up and hit that button, I needs my Pablo!  And as much as I love Bruce who was obviously instrumental to my developmental years this really is an ensemble show now, no if and or buts about.  I’ve come to think of the trio as but facets of the whole, Pablo is clearly Ash’s conscience, there to remind him of what he’s really fighting for.  Kelly is the cool, sexy, smart ass that Ash likes to think of himself but can never truly be because..well he's an idiot.  And I’ve even come around to Ruby as his newly developed pragmatic side to help him fess up to the horrible screw up he’s become and move on with his life.

 

In some twisted sense of poetic justice the Necronomicon and it’s disciples have taking away every one and everything Ash has ever cared for only to replace them with a stronger, more cohesive set of familiar acquaintances...and potentially their own downfall. Or maybe I'm just projecting here trying to work through my grief.

 I should have known that Pablo wasn't going to make it when he was talking about his fish and chips truck.

post #572 of 638

I have a feeling Pablo will be back in some form. You never know with this show.

post #573 of 638

I hope not.  It would betray the rules that the entire series were set upon.  A previous ancestor, I can get behind that, but he'd better have a different personality from Pablo.

post #574 of 638

Well, if he really is dead he died a hero's death. He truly was the Strongest Vagina. 

post #575 of 638

A POWERFUL strong Vagina...

 

Still, him being dead (and yeah, I think he'll stay dead) doesn't mean we might not see his spirit form show up in some way. Even just momentarily. 

 

But if this show kills Kelly I'm starting a riot. 

post #576 of 638

Oh god the amount of ragequit I will hurl at my screen if that ever comes to pass...

post #577 of 638

Yeah, I don't even want to think about that. I'm still in semi-denial about Pablo.

Yeah, I really enjoyed that. Bruce Campbell brought some real menace to those scenes, and the torn straight-jacket combined with Ash's standard equipment was a cool look.

post #578 of 638
I liked that part... Ash as an antagonist was pretty scary. Good twist.
post #579 of 638
I haven't seen it, but this photo of Evil Ash (or whatever) I saw at AV Club was pretty badass.




Also, the season one bluray is on sale for $10 at Amazon right now. Grabbed a copy for my brother.

SPOILERS & OTHER HAZARDS OF ONDEMAND EARLY PREMIERE

 

 

 

 

 

*Insert obligatory Hans Landa gif here*

 

WOW...anything really can happen now they decided to open up those floodgates...so fingers crossed everybody.

So many callbacks this episode, it was almost like a greatest hits of the franchise. Also best use of Cutting Crew in a dog’s age...and Journey...and Olivia Newton John...

post #581 of 638

That was fucking great.

 

I honestly don't know where this season is going but I can't wait to find out.

post #582 of 638

DEMI-SPOILERS, MAYBE...

 

 

 

 

Not going to lie, despite the aggregate histrionics of prefab 80's nostalgia I really wished they'd stay a while longer in town before heading to the cabin. If only for the chance to relish Ash in his prime...and for the trip down mammary lane.

 

Classic slasher films are not just cinematic comfort food to me, they’ve become virtual yearbooks...god do I remember growing up with these idiots...but that’s a topic for another discussion. On second glance this whole episode sure seemed in a hurry though, did it seem abbreviated for anyone else? Or is it because they lifted scenes from past films wholesale, AOD in particular. Still it was great seeing Ted don the Henrietta costume for old times sake.

 

Also with the introduction of time loops/alternate realities is this how they’re finally going to explain the franchise inconsistencies even though the show treats all three films as happening sequentially? That or they're looking to retconn Ash as Michael Moorcock’s Eternal Champion for next season.

I'd be all for them using this as an excuse to merge any and all aspects of the franchise.  The best thing to come out of the mediocre video games is that little semi-good deadite voiced by Ted Raimi that becomes Ash's sidekick.

 

post #584 of 638

Basically they can do anything now with the reintroduction of time travel.  I wonder when Ash refers to the Middle Ages it's the one shown from ED2 and not AoD, which would explain him not having that sweet steel gauntlet. There's so many possibilities now and I'm excited to where they'll lead.

post #585 of 638

For me, this season has sort of been on autopilot. It didn't seem to have much forward momentum. There were great moments, but there just didn't seem to be a desire from the writers to really do much.

 

Last night's episode turned me around pretty quickly though. I loved every single moment of it. From the little twists, to the throwbacks, I was absolutely enjoying every moment. And what a cliffhanger!

post #586 of 638

Does anyone remember that early 90's syndicated show Stuntmasters? I only ask here because weekly hagiography of Dar Robinson/Rémy Julienne aside they’d go on location to movies still in production, well for one episode they did one entirely on AOD.

 

They spent the entire hour at the castle set in southern California talking not only to Sam & Bruce but mostly the crew i.e. the actual stuntmen used for the finale. For some reason this footage never made it to any of the umpteenth home releases nor is it anywhere on the grey market, has it been lost?

 

Also since where on the topic does anyone else remember being the only one in their theater when the film actually came out? As much love as the franchise gets these days it was basically a deserted island back then, or maybe that’s was just in my neck of the woods. I’m also hoping and praying that with the genie of time travel we get more of Ash in his western motif from the end of AOD...screw the shotty bring back the Winchester!

Definitely. While Evil Dead 1 and 2 built a considerable audience with VHS in the 80s and 90s, Evil Dead/ Bruce Campbell fandom didn't really blow up until the early 00s. 

 

My friend and I got to interview Campbell for our college newspaper in 2001 and we were met with more than a few blank stares when we told people who we were interviewing ("Who's that?).

 

He came back to the same area a year and a half later and the very same people who had no clue who he was now had "MEETING BRUCE CAMPBELL TONIGHT! YAAAASS!" in their AOL profiles (member IM?).

 

And yet I still I think Ash vs. Evil Dead benefitted most from the remake being a hit and from Campbell's profile being raised from his stint on Burn Notice. 

post #588 of 638

Army of Darkness not being marketed as an Evil Dead film may have had some part to play in that.  For my part, I was familiar with EDII from late night cable showings... but had NO idea that AoD was a sequel.  My friend and I thought the trailer was funny so we went to see it, and in the opening recap I was like  "Wait a minute.... this is familiar!"  And yeah... the theater was more or less empty.

 

Not that the Evil Dead brand would have been enough to pack the theaters, but I do think it would have helped somewhat. 

post #589 of 638

Was that the actual Rape Tree?!

 

I've been all in on this season and this episode was no exception. Loved every second of it. I'm really hoping Ash fucks up as always and when they go back to the future it's a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with Deadites. Which was always my hope for a hypothetical Evil Dead 4. 

post #590 of 638

I let out an audible "Oh, shit!" as soon as Henrietta's voice came from the cellar. Plenty to enjoy with this episode. The creature work on this show continues to be first-rate. The demon tree looked great, as did Henrietta and that horrible little thing that Ash threw up. My favorite moment might have been when Ash suddenly became confused about what part of the cabin he originally found the Necronomicon in. I'm very happy that they've embraced the wonkiness of the series' continuity.

post #591 of 638

I had the same line of thought too Codename, thankfully Kelly and Ruby were too much for it.  Also while the fan in me would love a payoff to the alternate ending of AOD, I want my Wild, Wild West style Ash even moreso.

post #592 of 638

And oh god, as bummed out as Pablo's death had me, seeing him taped up with garbage bags and his legs sticking out was just fantastic. 

post #593 of 638

Damn, the tree scene was kind of intense.

post #594 of 638

Come on guys, you know Ash is going to fuck up and it's going to be great.

post #595 of 638
This may have been my favorite episode. It's certainly the fastest-paced, but also the most competitively sequenced. Moments like the tree fight, everything with the bear trap, Ash doing donuts while Ruby and Kelly talked. They were edited far better than any previous episodes since the pilot. Everything had a great flow.

And this episode had the most gag-inducing moment for me. Henrietta's fat clogging up the chainsaw was fucking nasty. But I was laughing pretty hard.
post #596 of 638
Come on, man. This show is something fucking else. So much greatness.

Nope, Ash getting his head sucked into a corpse's anus still takes the cake. Those fucking spurts of corpse shit...

 

The best/worst part is I was eating dinner during that scene...

post #598 of 638
I didn't think the poop spurting would top it for me, but I got pretty icked by the chainsaw clog.
post #599 of 638
Sucking the evil gunk and spitting out that creature is the closest I've come to throwing up while watching the show. Even the teabagging shitting corpse had me in complete hysterics.
post #600 of 638

Oh boy...some of you will like it, some of you may actually dislike it but Ashley J. Williams is clearly not the hero we need but he is the one we deserve - read into that what you will.  Also for those of you that got the dry heaves from the gut puss last episode y'all should have a vomit bag ready for the opening cause...well spoilers. Folks, the only thing I can say more is it's going to be a long wait till next fall.

 

For what it’s worth this show has really made me pine for a premium cable adaptation of another beloved 80's video staple, Anthony Hickox's Waxwork. Yeah I know - to modern audiences it’ll just be a rip-off of Cabin in The Woods or some such malarkey but I don’t care, Tony did it first...and better. Although now that I stop to genuinely think about it they'd probably just make it into a shittier version of Sliders - never mind.
