TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Series Finale Review

Season 3, Episode 10: The Mettle of Man SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell) tries to end his battle with evil once and for all. REVIEW: Well, that’s all folks. After three seasons, and thirty episodes, one of the greatest fanboy wish fulfillment experiments ever comes to an end. It was fun while it lasted. Certainly, no one will ever mistake “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” for one of...

Season 3, Episode 6 & 7: SUMMARY: Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Brandy grow closer, while Ruby hatches her most diabolical plan yet. REVIEW: First off - I apologize for missing last week’s review.

TV Review: Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 3 - Episode 5

Season 3, Episode 5: Baby Proof SUMMARY: Ash's (Bruce Campbell) trip to Ruby's lair puts him in the crosshairs of his latest bundle of joy. REVIEW: One of the things I’m liking about “Ash vs Evil Dead” season three is how contained it is. We’re about halfway through the season now, and everything up to this point really does feel like half a story without too...
