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!
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.
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!
