    I couldn't find another thread.

    The premiere of Ash vs. Evil Dead was so, so groovy

    This one too. Not my cuppa, but a former Breaking Bad producer doing the Black Swan thing might be ok...

    oh...




    MAN.

    Black Sails. I am so very glad I held those last 2. Rewatched all of s2 prior...but those last 2 episodes...WOW. Everything came together.From the ABRUPT death of Miranda Barlow to the 'becoming' of Long John Silver, it was almost toooooooo much. I think this show does itself a disservice by being on so early in the year. No Golden Globe nominations??????? Really? Toby Stephens should have been a lock. As he admits in his confession to Barlow...Flint has done some terrible terrible things. While they were done in single handed pursuit of a greater purpose, they are still some sins that just won't wash clean. And yet, Stephens has made a hard man VERY human. Flawed, unapologetic to a fault, and somehow...some way...you just can't help but root for him. That's a tricky thing to pull off. And Silver. Almost the opposite. From the beginning...he felt miscast. Unlikable, morally bankrupt...yet somehow, like he did with the crew and the daily news *THUMPTHUMP*, he has turned my opinion totally around. Flint does not exist without him, and as he is learning he does not exist without Flint and the band of pirates. Just some terrific character work. Jack and Bonny...outstanding. Max, a character I didn't buy for a while...even she is redeemed. Just terrific work across the board. And...it's such a damned beautifully shot show. AND now they are adding Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard? You have to be kidding me. If you are not watching you should be. It is one of the BEST shows on tv.
    And fellow sailors, I read that the 4th season is already green lit...so that's great. My only problem...how in the HELL am I going to save the last two episodes for almost a year this time. I cannot see it happening.

    And, two episodes into Ash vs Evil Dead. Just fun enough, hits the nostalgia button just enough, to overcome the obvious shortcomings. Looks/feels like a tv show in the worst ways...cheap, clunky...some not so great acting...but...

    Raimi knows what folks want. Ash cracking wise. Some old school cheap tricks/practical fx...and Ash's new buddy is kinda cool. Just enough to keep it from feeling like a bad idea. Probably finish the rest today...will let you know if they can sustain the low bar.
