If you haven’t dived deep into this delightfully schlocky gore-fest, then you haven’t lived. Do we care that Bruce Campbell’s Ash Williams is one of the most unlikable rogues ever to sully this Golden Age of Television with his endless parade of self-absorbed diatribes? No, we don’t. The fun of this series is that it not only captures the ridiculous comedy-horror insanity of the original Evil Dead movies, but actually steps it up to a level of absurdity that Sam Raimi merely set up in those horror classics. This isn’t high art. But when it comes to the explosion of “monster horror” on TV, we ﬁnd the absolutely unapologetic audacity of Ash vs. Evil Dead beyond the pale of human decency—and therefore worthy of some serious accolades in a category in which decency is a bad thing.
