    Ash versus Evil dead is next for me
    I knew from his other shows (plus I think I remember seeing him talk about directing one episode of Community) that he was a director but haven't yet seen his movies. Will have to add those to the list.

    Have you seen his movie My Name is Bruce? A lot of the humor in Ash Vs Evil Dead is pretty similar. Kind of a washed up version of Ash still trying to be groovy as he gets older. Ash vs Evil Dead had some hit or miss moments for me but overall usually kept me laughing.

    Real talk? Is this not a series that needs each episode or are all episodes stand alone?

    stand alone with occasional Easter eggs that pop up now and again. Think Twilight Zone

    I really like military documentaries/docuseries. I recently watched The Fighing Season on Netflix about the conflict in Afghanistan. It was really good and insightful. Language is rough as you can imagine but I recommend it.

    We just got to this one last night. Excellent episode. Was surprised to see Mackenzie Davis from Halt and Catch Fire pop up. Which speaking of that the entire series of Halt and Catch Fire is on Netflix currently and is a very good show. AMC production that I think got a bit overlooked more than it should have.

    It was a great choice casting her as Yorkie.... but even they probably could not have predicted the chemistry between her and Guga Mbatha-Raw as Kelly. That was lightning in a bottle if I've ever seen it.... they were just electric for the whole episode.

    I agree about Halt and Catch Fire being underrated too. Didn't realize it was on Netflix. But I watched it from the beginning on AMC (I'm a sucker for 1980's settings) and it's a really good show....maybe even great.

    I know it got progressively better each season and Mackenzie Davis, Scoot McNairy, Lee Pace, Kerry Bische, and Toby Huss are all phenomenal during the whole run and have crazy good chemistry together.

    Oh and if you are a fan of Mackenzie she also has a decent sized role in the new Blade Runner 2049 film.

    Agreed completely on the Halt cast. Scoot McNairy is an outstanding actor.

    Was happy to see her pop up in Blade Runner also. She had a small part in the Martian as well.
