Pilot




I am 7 weeks behind with the show as I use to juggling all of my current shows. This was the one that I was most uncertain about. Wasn't sure this modern day take on the Sleepy Hollow myth would work. Even though I wasn't watching the show, I was keeping track of what was showing signs of either getting cancelled and what was getting renewed. I was totally shocked to hear that Sleepy Hollow was not only succeeding, but had such strong word of mouth that the series was already picked up for a second season after the 3rd episode had aired. Wow. This was totally unexpected and unheard of for a new show. And the fact that FOX is behind this show of faith is even more shocking given their poor track record.

So, I come into the Pilot with very high expectations. Having just watched it, I am damn impressed by the quality of the show. First off, both the main characters I Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie) are immensely likable. They play off each other extremely well, which makes you want to see them working together as a team. Second, the episode does a fantastic job in grounding the mythology and legend in the 21st century and it works. Lastly, there is some pretty damn funny and humorous moments that take place within the hour and it never feels forced. They are scenes that will definitely leave a smile on your face.

When the Headless Horseman trades in his old battleaxe for an assault rifle, the image is undeniably awesome/ Overall the Pilot does what most fail to do and that's give it an immediate identity. I wasn't really expecting them to retain the horror element as they did. It's clear the writers know what they are doing here. The writing and acting is already up and running. I'm already on board with this series and can't wait to see what comes next. It's even better that I have 5 more episodes waiting for me right now to get through.
