Locked inside the Eye of Agamotto, the time Gem allows Strange to defeat the entity Dormammu by trapping him in a Groundhog Day style time loop. For those who have not been keeping track, that leaves us with only one Gem left in the set: the Soul Gem.

Let Me Put My Suggestions In You: Ash vs. Evil Dead

img_1442Anyone who is thinking about making a sequel (or reboot) to an old movie or TV show, I have 4 words for you……..Ash vs. Evil Dead. This was my thought at the end of the first season. This show gave me everything that made me love the originals, but packaged with an ongoing story format that the movies did not have. Bruce Campbell’s return as Ash 30 years later is fantastic. Ash’s new friends, Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo (Ray Santiago), are a great addition. If it is true that that audience should be left wanting more, than Ash vs Evil Dead delivered on all fronts.

Season 2 Episode 1 has now aired and there is no way of denying, this show is still awesome. The laughs, the scares, the blood: all there in abundance. The folks working on this show know their stuff. They have continued to deliver all of the things that the fans love about the original films, while continuing to to add new themes and story to keep the interest.

Again, to anyone who is looking to revive an old movie or TV franchise, take a look. Bruce Campbell and company have figured out how to do this right. If you are a fan of the Evil Dead movies, this is a must see!

First Published in 1974 by game creators the late Gary Gygax and David Arneson, the game took the world by storm and famously caused a lot of moral panic among some groups in the 1970s but the controversy only bolstered sales creating more popularity.
