Part of the reason I'm loving the show so far is that it combines the best things about both movies: An AoD style Ash and an Evil Dead 2 vibe.

Holy shit you are right about that. Just saw the first episode.

I wonder if there will be a "Big-Bad" introduced, or if they'll go for villain-monster of the week.

Maybe both. Would make sense. The Big Bad sends out his minions in handy one-week intervals.

The blood and gore in the first episode was great. They definitely didn't tone anything down from the movies. The mix of horror and humor is perfect. And Ash is great. 99% of the time he is a clueless moron, but the 1% of the time when he steps up and plays the hero makes up for it. I really like how they didn't take it away from him. I.e. the hot co-worker who rightly shoots him down for being an old has-been when he hits on her early on, gives him his props when he saves the day.

There's more blood in two episodes of this show than pretty much any show on TV in the past 5 years outside of Spartacus and True Blood.

Ep 2 was fine but kind of a bit slow, yet also natural melding the three characters into a questing unit and kind of launching them on the quest of this show. Looking forward to seeing black lady cop and especially Lucy Lawless play bigger parts next time.

Black Cop Lady would get it.

I love this show, which isn't surprising.

Bruce Campbell did an AMA today and said we'll only see her a bit this season. Huge role next season.

*Frown* That's a good 50% of my my reason for tuning in. I had a monster crush on Xena when I was younger now.
