Review: Bruce Campbell is groovy again in his best role in 'Ash vs. Evil Dead'

Ash makes a fine transition to both middle age and television

In the opening moments of Starz's "Ash vs. Evil Dead," director Sam Raimi presents the kind of rapidly-edited montages that became a signature part of the "Evil Dead" films, as demon-fighting hero Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) straps some kind of complicated device to his body. Is it another chainsaw to fit over the hand he chopped off in 1987's "Evil Dead II"? The mechanical metal hand he had forged in 1993's "Army of Darkness"?

Let's talk about the 'Supergirl' premiere

What did everybody think of Melissa Benoist as the DC Comics heroine?

I posted my review of "Supergirl" last week, and my interview with the show's producers the week before. Now the show has finally aired, which means it's your turn to comment. For those who tuned in tonight (or saw it at Comic-Con, or perhaps saw the pirated version over the summer), what did you think? Was Melissa Benoist a good choice for the title role? Did the action scenes excite you? Did any of the supporting characters pop? Did the frequent attempts to avoid saying Superman's name become distracting? Are you interested in this alien invasion arc? And will you watch again?

Review: Why 'Survivor's Remorse' should be your Sports 'Entourage' of choice

The Starz comedy isn't only better than 'Ballers,' but better than 'Entourage' itself

A couple of months ago, as I prepared to tape a radio appearance, the host and I discussed potential topics, and I noted that Starz's basketball comedy "Survivor's Remorse" would have its second season premiere that weekend, and I liked the show a lot.
