ASH VS EVIL DEAD Season 1 Review – Sometimes Dead is Better…

The series doesn't have a very deep or complex lore about it. In fact, I'd say that it doesn't really have a lore to it at all. It's pretty much a "what you see is what you get" type of situation, and that's because that's the way it was intended to be. It's not a hard horror series, it's more of a light romp, especially once they got to Army of Darkness. So they have to expand and build upon something that didn't exist before. The challenge isn't just a new adventure for Ash and company, but creating context for the things that already existed just fine with out it. The danger is making things convoluted and alienating fans that really love the simple fun that the film series provided. There was a lot going against this series on just a level of basic narrative functionality.
