I’ve been a huge fan of Pirates of the Caribbean ever since the first movie came out in 2003. The following two movies weren’t all that great, but despite the franchise’s many problems, I still had a soft spot for it in my heart, even after watching the subpar On Stranger Tides. And then Johnny Depp decided to be an asshole, and since that wasn’t enough to end his career, we’re now getting Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Full disclosure: I’ve never seen Bones before. I mean, generally speaking, I know that it’s been on the air for a long time, and I know Ace watches it occasionally, and that’s about all I know about it. But when FOX announced that it was doing a special Sleepy Hollow and Bones crossover event for Halloween (with a namesmush hashtag, #HollowBones), I was actually kind of excited. I wanted to see how other detective-ish folks would react to Sleepy Hollow’s particular brand of crazy, and I wanted to see how Ichabod worked with people who were not as attuned to him as Abbie is. Unfortunately, by the end of the dual episodes, I was left wondering what the point of it all was. Spoilers after the jump!
