Fall is here and I can't think if a better story that captures the feel of fall and Halloween like Sleepy Hollow. When the concept of that book was turned into a television series last Year I was excited. Last season ended with such a cliffhanger that I couldn't wait for this season to start. Last week was the first episode of the season and I must admit I was confused.
When the episode begins we have the little "Previously on" which helped me remember where we left off. Then it starts almost months later like nothing happened. I was really confused at first. So much so that my wife and I found the season finale on Demand and re-watched it. Nope, still confused after that. We taped it on our DVR and yes, I realize I am dating myself by saying I taped it. We started the episode over and just hung on.
About ten minutes in it all makes sense. I had worried that this was a show that wasn't going to stand the test of time. You can only battle the headless horseman so many times before it gets old right. Then they bring in the four horsemen of the Apocalypse and now Ichabod has much more on his plate than just a headless soldier who wont die. We love this show. Tonight is a new episode of season 2 and I can't wait. Between this and Gotham, I have a reason to love Mondays. Sounds cheesy I know but it is true. Some of my wife's and my favorite shows are on Monday night. Castle, Under the Dome, and now Gotham and Sleepy Hollow. The rest of the week is just not as good. Except Fridays, I do like Fridays just for the weekend. It is still early enough to get in on this show and enjoy it. If you are interested the season premier is still free on iTunes and you can always check your Cable provider for it OnDemand.
This will also be included in my entries for the RIP Challenge over at Stainless Steel Droppings. This is part of the Peril on the Screen section of this challenge.
I love Sleepy Hollow so much. Will be watching the 2nd episode tonight. Do you guys watch Grimm? That is a really good one too.ReplyDelete
We love Grimm. Last season was really good and I'm looking forward to the new season starting whenever that is.ReplyDelete
I was dubious of the premise when Sleepy Hallow premiered last season, but I enjoy this show *so* much. I love its creepiness, and its strong male/female friendship, and I could watch scenes of Ichabod critiquing modern American politics forever. :)ReplyDelete
I was worried this shown couldnt remain interesting for long, but I like what they have done with the story. The original story was just the opening. I also agree with your points. This is a great show. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
