Out of the Blue

"Ash vs. Evil Dead" in a Ratings Decline So You Better Start Watching. You have been warned (thanks RedEye9). Don't look at me, as we are doing our part here, since Optimum eventually worked out its dispute with Starz and put the channel back on the air.

Now if they would only revive Blunt Talk.

Starz apparently doesn't have the ability to get world wide deals. The majority of the world doesn't seem to have access to it without downloading it. If I'm reading things correctly not even England is getting without difficulty on the viewer's part. There's no Rami handed over rights, so my guess was they intended to move over to NetFlix.

Also if what HorrorScope said was true about Ash leaving (news to me) there's no way the show will survive without him.

Sorry when I said Ash I was abbreviating the show name. If the 3rd season is the last, I'd still be satisfied with the updated series overall.

I love "Ash vs. Evil Dead", but I never watch TV on it's scheduled time. I'm a cord cutter, so I watch what shows I want once they've been added to another platform. I watch the CW Arrowverse shows on Netflix for example, as they are added days after each season ends.

Just wanting to mention if you have updated cable/sat equipment a lot of their content is available on Demand. I have Starz at $5, which allows me to que up Ash at any point. A little FYI, at least they stepped up a little there.

Really? You're going to hide behind that? What about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? If their argument is that you're an adult than that should apply across the board. You can vote, go to war, go to prison, but you can't buy a beer? And since guns came into being I'm pretty sure they've killed a lot more people. WW1 and 2 alone rate somewhere between 80-100 million. So, try again, scooter.

Aye. That and the fact that it didn't premiere in time for Halloween really bummed me on the show. It's not even something I'm terribly interested in watching at this time of the year.

Yeah... it's almost like they said "ALMOST all purposes"

But, since two exceptions exist, obviously, no matter how many examples one can come up with confirming that 18 years is the age in which people get ALMOST all adult rights and responsibilities, it means that the generalization is utterly false.

But yes... society definitely doesn't treat young adults as actual full-on adults. Frankly... they shouldn't. The fully-mature 18-25 year old is the incredibly rare exception.

Also, certain political offices have an age requirement, such as 35 for the President.

That's because the insurance industry lobbyists and other parties managed to beat the automobile industry to the punch. If we had insurance laws for guns similar to the insurance laws we have for cars I would be ecstatic. Not because I actually think that is the way to go. (or not to go..I haven't given the idea much thought at all) I just want to see the Insurance industry lobbyists and the NRA lobbyists go at it in a political cage match. Entertainment and possible progress all all once!

To spread the word, the first two seasons are on Netflix. If you are a fan of evil dead, or just of the comedy horror genre, it's an extremely well made, gory, hilarious show based on the original movies.

With luck, assuming it doesn't survive past Season 3, maybe Netflix would pick it up. But that's never a sure thing. It's such a great show, so unique to television, and yet it's never broken 1/2 a million concurrent viewers. This is probably because it's on Stars - perhaps the least subscribed cable channel out there. It's also heavily pirated. It's too bad, because anyone who's seen even a single episode on Netflix is going to want more!

Exactly. We are looking for intelligent life elsewhere because we did not find any on our own planet. Even or ESPECIALLY not in front of a mirror.

Ash vs. Evil Dead is over the top, full of violence, a total clichéfest, muy macho despite at least two strong female characters, it is the opposite of political correctness...

GIVE ME MORE! Screw Starz, this show needs to be financed and streamed by Amazon or Netflix.

My fear with fusion power is it will have similar problems to solar. That is to say, the materials required will be exotic and there will be a wake of landfills overflowing from making the necessary parts. I hope I'm wrong...

Maybe we should be searching for the BRINK instead.

Some good stuff there.

Even if this is that last year for Ash, it did a great job bringing it all back and I'd be satisfied with what they did.

Yes to the techs always right around the corner.

Yes look away, we have a planetary embarrassment at the helm, no need to make it an inter galactic disaster.

Ha! I actually heard a BBC radio segment on fusion the other day. The premise of the piece was, it always seems like fusion is 30 years off -- let's find out where we are. Amusingly at the end of the piece the answer was we are 30 years off. The consensus seemingly being we (scientists) underestimated the difficulty in the 1950s and 1960s and we've never really caught up, "until now".

There seems to be a lot of people working on it. So that's good at least. Maybe we'll get lucky and their will be a break thru of some kind soon...
