Review: Ash vs Evil Dead

There were a lot of shows that I was looking forward to this fall, but none with nearly as much eagerness as Ash vs. Evil Dead.  I’ve been a big fan of the Evil Dead franchise since I was a kid, so I was beside myself with joy when I found out that Starz was turning it into a television show.  That elation skyrocketed into the stratosphere when I learned that Girlfriends and Sleepy Hollow alum Jill Marie Jones was cast as the female lead.  She plays Amanda Fisher, a State Trooper who is tracking down Bruce Campbell’s character Ash Williams.
