I watched the show last night and it was brilliant. The style of filming and gore was spot on, it had some very funny moments and was really good fun. It certainly carries on the Army of Darkness style of comedy, action and gore so if you were a fan of the films you'll really like this.

Best to think of it as another timeline entirely, I think. Bear in mind the ending of Evil Dead 2 STILL ends with Ash being sucked into the past. There was evidently a "cabin event" in this Ash's past, but aside from a few movie clips, we don't know exactly what happened to him then. Just that he's spent thirty years afterwards hanging around bars making up stories about how he lost his hand.
Personally I'm pretending it's a sequel to Evil Dead The Musical.
Yeah, I really enjoyed this week's. The pacing's been a bit squiffy in parts of the season and I'd have loved a bit more development of Amanda's character before she kicked it, but it was still an emotional moment that packed enough weight to move on to the battle with Evil Ash. Pretty obvious "which one's the real Ash" set up coming up with that cliffhanger ending, but I'm looking forward to the final two episodes now!
