Sleepy Hollow

"Sleepy Hollow" review by Suzanne
Premieres Monday September 16 on FOX

I really enjoyed this pilot, and I look forward to seeing more. I hope it's not too "out there" for most people. In some ways, the tone of the show is like "Grimm" on NBC. It's very original, even though it takes from, of course, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" as well as from the bible and other mythology.

The main character is a female cop in the small town of Sleepy Hollow. She is with the sheriff when they encounter a headless horseman. People die in this show, which makes it great because they have these familiar actor who show up and then, oops, they're dead! You don't know what to expect and it keeps you guessing.

Then we meet Ichabod Crane, who is, of course, very sexy and nothing like the character in the story.  But it's not just a headless horseman that he has to worry about. There are many different layers to this show, and mysterious things going on, along with the whole "fish out of water story" of a man from the 17th century who suddenly appears in the present.  There is humor as well as drama, tragedy, and a whole lot of action.

I did love this and can't wait until the second episode. Don't miss it!



MON SEPT 16 9/8c

After being resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) finds himself in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, where he quickly realizes that evil has awoken with him. When Sheriff August Corbin (guest star Clancy Brown) is killed by the infamous Headless Horseman, Ichabod forms an unlikely bond with Detective ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie), a young cop who has her own childhood supernatural experiences. Together, the two embark on a mission to stop evil and uncover mysteries dating back to the founding of our country. Captain FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones) hesitates to believe Ichabod’s tales of supernatural evil. But when Ichabod’s former wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter), provides clues about impending evil, they all begin to realize that this town is anything but sleepy in the all-new “Pilot” series premiere episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Monday, Sept. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
