It’s catch-up time, so we’re having an “Ashtravaganza” as we chat about FOUR episodes of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, including the return of Cheryl! Also, Arnold shares some of the amazing responses to the controversial episode 86 of DOCTOR OF THE DEAD that covered the Season 7 premiere of THE WALKING DEAD! Happy Thanksgiving, eat some flesh for us!
Well…hmm. We need to talk about that scene in the latest ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, “The Morgue!” But first, it’s time to catch up with Murphy at the Museum of Progress in Spokane and the rest of the survivors on the newest Z NATION, “Escorpion and the Red Hand!” Also, if you’re in the Evans City, PA area this weekend, check out the Living Dead Weekend and catch Arnold’s lecture – “Zombies 101: Monsters with Meaning” – Sunday at 12-1pm!
Oh, and be warned that because of the extreme subject matter in this week’s ASH, we loosened up on language a little in this one.
Ash is back, baby! Arnold and Scott talk the amazing ASH VS. EVIL DEAD Season 2 premiere, “Home,” the latest Z NATION, “Murphy’s Miracle,” and have a chat about some even more important matters as well as a report from Walker Stalker Philadelphia and a preview of the Living Dead Weekend in Evans City, PA!
Read on for the original article, but we’ve updated this post to include the all-new red band trailer and San Diego Comic-Con poster:
[ORIGINAL POST] The Doc here, and long-time listeners of our DOCTOR OF THE DEAD podcast certainly know how much Scott and I absolutely loved the first season of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD! We watched every single episode with a smile plastered on our faces, and we often talked on the show about how this series was just an absolute gift to fans, something we could never have expected and couldn’t quite believe even existed!
Well it happened, it exists, and it was not only awesome but groovy enough to return for a second blood-drenched season of Deadite-destroying escapades. Welcome the Ghost Beaters back with this explosive Season 2 teaser! Bull-riding, felt puppets, and buckets of blood – what more could any EVIL DEAD fan ask for?
And here are the two official stills released so far; this team is ready for action!
This is a fanboy’s dream come true, the heroic union of a childhood icon with one from my adulthood – a pairing that looks and feels exactly perfect! Lee Majors, THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN himself, is joining ASH VS. EVIL DEAD in its second season to play Brock Williams, Ash’s never-before-seen father! Can you imagine – the Bionic Man and a guy with a chainsaw for an arm teaming up to battle the Deadite menace? It doesn’t get any better than this!
For me and many other kids that grew up in the ’70s, THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN was a first major fan obsession as Steve Austin ran into action (in slow motion, mind you), against the likes of the Russian Venus Probe, the Fembots, and of course, Bigfoot!
Sure, sure, I hear you. Majors isn’t actually playing a Bionic Man this time around. But he’s still a hero, and you couldn’t pick a better man to stand side by side with Bruce Campbell’s Ash in a fight against the forces of evil. And now here’s our first glimpse of father and son, locked and loaded and ready to blast down the demons!
