Which is stupid. For one thing the Bible says we are made in God’s image. And we have a sense of humor. Ergo it’s incredibly logical to assume God has a sense of humor also. (A point I’ve never heard anybody other than myself make)

Some months ago, I was going for a walk. On my walk, I felt compelled to go in a certain direction; it was as if a voice inside me was saying “Go in this direction, and you’ll cross paths with someone who’ll want to talk to you.” I decided to follow this inner voice, hoping it would lead me to the love of my life or a possible employer. And I did cross paths with someone who wanted to talk to me; it was a middle-aged woman asking for directions to the nearest bus stop.

So yes, God definitely has a sense of humour.

Last web series/tv show seen
Time

I decided to rewatch the first season, to refresh my memory of events before proceeding to the second. My opinion of the show, which wasn’t all that high to begin with, has fallen.

SPOILERS

  1. This Ash isn’t the Ash from the movies; this is a flanderized caricature of Ash. The Ash from the films may have been rude ‘n’ crude — which makes sense in light of what he’s experienced — but he wasn’t a casual racist or a horndog or a numbskull like he’s portrayed here. This Ash simply isn’t likable; his only saving grace is his one-liners.

  2. Kelly. I don’t like her. I don’t like her personality, I don’t like her voice, and I don’t like her makeup.

  3. All the interesting characters on this show die within episodes of their introduction. Lionel and El Brujo? Both had special knowledge/talents which could’ve been of recurrent use to the main characters further down the line. But nope, they were killed and became Deadites. Elegos? He could’ve been a recurring villain, if not a main villain in his own right. He acts the boogeyman for all of three episodes, then he’s blown to pieces. Quoth the Thulsa Doom, “Such a waste.”

  4. Amanda. What a pointless, go-nowhere character. Don’t even get me started on her “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” romance with Ash.

  5. Ruby. She was interesting initially. Her introduction, as a demon hunter pursuing Ash under the mistaken belief that he’s allied with the Deadites? So much potential there. Then she was revealed as a Dark One who just wants to control the forces of darkness 'cause she’s EVIIIIL. Bleech.

  6. The tone. It’s trying to be violent/gory as well as funny, but it’s no Evil Dead II. Evil Dead II knew how to balance comedy and horror. Ash vs. Evil Dead is a discordant clusterfuck of tastelessness.

  7. So no one ever went to the cabin in the years between Evil Dead II and this series? Ash’s parents never asked him what became of Cheryl? None of the family/friends/co-workers/employers of Scotty/Shelly/Linda ever made inquiries about their whereabouts? No random visitors/hikers ever explored the cabin grounds and found the remains of any of the people who died there? It just raises too many questions.

My individual episode ratings:

  • “El Jefe” – 6/10
  • “Bait” – 7/10
  • “Books from Beyond” – 7/10
  • “Brujo” – 7/10
  • “The Host” – 6/10
  • “The Killer of Killers” – 6/10
  • “Fire in the Hole” – 5/10
  • “Ashes to Ashes” – 7/10
  • “Bound in Flesh” – 5/10
  • “The Dark One” – 4/10

My rating for the season (and the show):

★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆

I’m still going to check out the second season. If I like it more than the first, then my rating will improve. If not …

The art does get pretty awful. I mean, look at this:

(the picture is pretty tall so I didn’t want to put it in this post)

I’m late in responding, but my God. It’s like the artist drew the bodies and backgrounds by hand, but when it came time to do the faces, said “fuck it” and copy-and-pasted some Photoshopped heads in there.

sasquatch

Okay, wait. If there is one sasquatch, there will be many sasquatch. There will be, or will have been, enough sasquatch to sustain the species for at least some period of time. There is not just one singular sasquatch (or Loch Ness monster for that matter) that is hundreds of years old.

Unless they are Sith Sasquatch and there can always only be two.

Or they’re like the phoenix, existing one at a time, the parent dying as it gives birth to its child.

The only video game consoles I ever owned were two N64s* and a SNES. Both N64s were lost to the pawn shop, the SNES just failed to turn on one day (I suspect the cats pissed on it when I had it stored away in my closet, ruining it).

*Owned separately, years apart.

Was that before or after you talked about how you fantasized about ripping some of our faces off or whatever it was you said?

After.
And it was throats, not faces. 😃

Have you ever seen the movie Road House?

Actually can’t say I have. Is it about steak? I could get down on that

It’s only one of the best stupid movies of all time.

“Too much” and “garlic” is a three-word combination that simply does not exist in nature.

I used to feel ambivalent* towards this thread, but had forgotten the reasons why. Now I remember.

*The correct definition of “ambivalent”, as in having mixed feelings.
