At first glance, Stan Against Evil might not seem like much more than IFC’s answer to Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead, and while there are many similarities to support this idea, further inspection makes it clear that these two totally separate beasts only happen to dwell in similar spooky kooky territory. The typical Stan fan will likely resent the seemingly constant comparison between these two half-hour horror comedies that feature snarky, aging “heroes” and strong female counterparts with which they combat supernatural threats, but it’s my argument that Stan very obviously serves its own purposes and in doing so rightfully earned its second season, which begins tomorrow night.
