Sleepy Hollow Recap: “Blood Moon”

Written on September 27, 2013 at 12:08 am, by

We begin with Ichabod fleeing through a dark and gothic forestscape, pursued by the Horseman and his three buddies.  Indeed, while the title of the show is Sleepy Hollow and not Apocalypse NOW, it would not be utterly unthinkable to suggest a subtitle of “Apocalypse Really, Really SOON, Like….Probably Within Weeks At This Rate!

Sleepy Hollow: Pilot Recap

Written on September 17, 2013 at 9:29 pm, by

CUE THE BATTLE AXES AND MUSKETS AND OTHER REVOLUTIONARY WAR ACCOUTREMENTS!  It’s that kind of pilot, and time’s a-wastin’. Our hero, Ichabod Crane, is in the thick of battle when an ominous red coated horseman approaches.  Crane, meet Bane!  (Or is it only me who thinks our horseman bears a strong resemblance to The Dark Knight Rises villain?) Ichabod is in the employ of one George Washington.

Um, so….Zulily?  I love you and all, but are “Friday the 13th Costumes & Toys” really a thing?  Really? Light sabers?  And yet not one hockey mask amongst your finery?

F Is For Friggatriskaidekaphobia

[Friggatriskaidekaphobia:  fear of Friday the 13th] It’s a silly case of superstition.
A date undeserving of suspicion.
UNLESS: you’re camping, or hiking, or in a boat,
or having sex, or putting on your coat,
or jogging, or swimming, or blissfully sleeping,
or shrieking, or eating, or thinking, or weeping
in the woods, or a hospital, or on a lake,
or in Manhattan, or out in space.

You fought the undead.
Space robots, too.
You had red on you,
and now you’ve got blue.

  Police officer to that pesky axe-wielding headless horseman running amuck: “PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR H…..!!  Uh……ergh…..um…..” I’m excited because: hellooooo?  Sleepy Hollow!  Does it get any more goth-glam than that?  Even better, there’s an actual Brit (Tom Mison) cast in the role of Ichabod Crane!  

Death. Taxes. And Carnival Accidents. (That’d Be THREE Things We Can File Under “Certain.”)

Written on September 9, 2013 at 5:20 pm, by

Oh, HuffPo.  Do we really think the word “freak” is either (a) accurate or (b) necessary to describe a carnival accident?  (You’ve seen the carny workers with their missing teeth and misspelled tattoos, right?) I propose the phrase, “Totally Expected Carnival Accident,” as a less redundant alternative.
