    LOL. That guy’s “sour face” is freaking hilarious. Hope he makes it a lot in season 2.

    Double LOL. Ash’s pop is the Million Dollar Man.

    Can you please not post a big spoiler like that in the headline.

  • Gadriel

    Lee Majors has just done the impossible.
    Made Ash even cooler.

    I stopped watching after episode 2. Glad fans enjoyed it though!

      Oh wow I finally found the person who didn’t like it. I’m not a huge fan of the movies, but I found the show to be fantastic. The short episodes was my main complaint, but it was great to watch several in a row. What didn’t you like?

        Well I’m not a huge fan of the more humorous Evil Dead films, nor do I really love Ash. The original Evil Dead and Evil Dead(2013) are what I truly like. But I recognize this show is very fan friendly and definitely see why people love it. Just not for me.

        • SugarShane333

          The remake was my favorite by far, but I just really dug the show.

  • 🙁 still half hour eps, eh? Still I loved most of season 1 and can’t wait to see how they further the adventures of the Ghostbeaters.

    • Bill
