I just realized that this show is starting tomorrow night on Fox.

Anyone else checking it out?

I could use a good new show, but I've no idea whether this will be a hit or a bust.

My DVR is set. I'm cautiously optimistic.
It looks like it could be fun and engaging. But I wonder how long they can stretch this kind or premise out.

I'll take a chance on it.

Has potential, but I am a bit worried that they are trying to combine National Treasure and Supernatural.

Seems like the headless horseman is up on his Highlander lore.

Quick rundown of the show with cast.

Holy god Nicole Beharie somehow looks even better in real life than on camera.

I fully expect this to be cancelled within the first five minutes of airing.

I'll give it a chance. Don't have the highest of hopes for this, but maybe it'll turn out to be fun like Grimm.

I don't know. Maybe. I mean usually that would be my expectation too.
But it has been fast track to Australian free to air tv. That in itself very rarely happens. Especially to something that doesn't have 'high bank' ties already. Agents of SHEILD is the other on that is being fast tracked to free to air. But has the Avengers connection.

Then again only two titles are in the wiki episode guide so far. I guess we'll see.

That's what I thought when I heard about this show. And two such attractive leads can't be a good sign. But is it going to be on the WB? there may be hope for it.

This is what will happen.... I'll pass because i know it is going to suck.... then someone will tell me how great it is, and I'll watch.... then I realize that they also thought The Mindy Project was funny, and hate myself for having listened.

Illuminati/free mason conspiracies mixed with biblical apocalypticism and wiccan mysteries and an anachronistic main character entwined in the tale of Sleep Hollow...what's ridiculous about that?

However, I'm digging it so far.

I only watched seconds of it where Clancy Brown got his head lopped off in a barn. Presumably.
And our villain rode off on horseback, but not before we got a view of that funky mark on his hand.....dum dum



Dumb.

Since it comes off on right after Bones I'll probably be pulled along to watch it at least until FOX starts airing the MLB playoffs in primetime and everything on FOX goes on hiatus for the month of October. So it probably has three more weeks to hook me.

However, right off the bat I'm not encouraged because they got the Four Horsemen appearing in the incorrect order. Death is the fourth horseman not the first as they said on the show. I know people misquote the Bible all the time (especially in politics), but come on if you're going to use Revelation as inspiration for your supernatural show is it too hard to ask to quote it accurately and do it in the right order?

I have a feeling this could be a show that I will just notice inaccuracies because of how blatantly bad they are and it'll just ruin my experience watching something I could otherwise enjoy.

Here are my impressions...

1. Good production values

2. Solid acting and directing.

3. I like Clancy Brown in shows featuring decapitation.

4. Hey, It's Harold... Or should we call him New Sulu now?

5. Wait a minute... Oh my God... That writing is a huge flaming bag full of dogshit, and someone just tricked me in to stepping in it.


For the love of all things holy will someone please come up with a good adaptation of Sleepy Hollow? That story is the scariest story that I have ever read or been told. The reason that it is so scary is because it is a complete mystery.When you define what the Headless Horseman is, he looses all power. Why is it that no one in the last 40 years or so have figured this out? For this reason alone, the Disney cartoon is far superior to this piece of trash.

This show is particularly egregious as I now have permanently etched in my memory the Headless Horseman spraying cops down with an M16. Will somebody in Hollywood just please stand up and slap the fuck out of the next person who introduces an idea like this in a production meeting?

Having said all of this, I firmly believe that America is stupid enough to make this show a hit.

I find the complaints to be valid, but the counterargument is just too compelling.

Seriously though I thought it was fun, akin to Supernatural or Arrow.
