It was groovy. There's little that is better on TV at the moment & even without Stars the first episode can be found online with googling it and adding the word "online" at the end. While time has passed since Ash's last appearance in Army of Darkness, and is addressed rather comically, Raimi picks up pretty much right where he left off.
I smiled ear to ear at the end of the episode when the reluctant hero emerged again!
Starz is letting you watch the first episode for free now: http://www.starz.com/originals/ashvsevildead/video/0481357cab164e38a5ca162c3a340a67
