BooksFromBeyond.com – For all your Necronomicon needs

The Necronomicon rears its human-skinned book cover head in Ash’s life again, and he turns to supernatural bookstore BooksFromBeyond.com to help him find out its secrets.

Used in Ash vs Evil Dead

In the pilot episode El Jefe [S01E01], Ash has a bar bathroom encounter with a Deadite that he thinks may have been triggered by the Necronomicon – Book of the Dead. Going back to his trailer to make sure he still has it, a baggie with leftover weed remnants jogs a memory of a drug fueled attempt to woo a woman by reading foreign sounding ‘poetry’ from the book, and he realizes that he’s responsible for releasing the demonic creatures on Earth.

Preparing to leave town the next morning, Ash digs out a business card covered in supernatural symbols for the bookstore Books From Beyond, and turns it over to reveal the store’s info including the domain  BooksFromBeyond.com. Calling the number, Ash mentions bringing in the book years ago “bound in human flesh, inked in blood” and asks for help translating it. The owner agrees, and Ash starts his journey to the bookstore with companions and Deadites in tow.

On Diaz calling all PI’s hacks, the scene immediately cuts to the Sporm’s PI commercial with its low production values and list of investigatory services such as cheating husbands, kids on drugs, and nudies of anyone. Selling himself as the only one with the qualifications to find out if YOUR husband is a murderer, the commercial flashes his phone number and the URL www.eyesnoop4u.com at the bottom of the screen. After Captain Holt explains that the source of her animosity is fear generated by the break-in, Diaz and Santiago go back to Gina’s apartment and work to make her feel safe again.

HalliburtonTeen.com – Arrested Development [S04E02]

Mixing political fact with funny similar to what 30 Rock did with BWLTruth.com, Arrested Development gets in a not-so-subtle dig in at Halliburton with HalliburtonTeen.com.

In Borderline Personalities [S02E12], George Bluth Sr. goes to home construction competitor Stan Sitwell in an attempt to sell his business shares to pay his wife’s legal bills. Reminding George that he dumped the last batch of stock he owned, Stan mentions his new project as a potential moneymaker. A sure thing, Stan claims that it will be bigger than Halliburton, or at least a Halliburton subsidiary like HalliburtonTeen.com. Cut to shots of the site (shown below pieced together) – a successful Abacrombie and Fitch-like retailer that serves the youth and lifestyle market alongside a re-branding of the overall penitentiary, rendition system, deep water drilling, and frozen goat cream consortium.
