Well, as Sleepy Hollow has been getting consistently worse these past few weeks, with only the occasional good episode shoved in with a myriad of bad ones, I had no hopes that “Awakening” would have any redeeming qualities. Even worse, I didn’t care. I literally only watched this episode because I’m the person scheduled to review it. So, was it any good?
Well, yes, actually, it was. “Awakening” had a lot of moments in it that I was happy to see. Unfortunately, it also had a lot of bad moments, too, that had me rolling me eyes. I’m also beginning to question if there’s a single part of American history that Ichabod Crane hasn’t shaped. Did you know he’s the one who cracked the Liberty Bell?
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a Sleepy Hollow episode, and almost as long since I’ve watched one, but after a small mini-marathon yesterday morning, I was raring to go for last night’s episode. With Hawley out of the way and only a few episodes left in the season, I figured the writers would be bringing their A-game. It was therefore doubly disappointing to discover that “Spellcaster” wasn’t really anything to write home about. Spoilers after the jump!
So after a long week of Ferguson and Thanksgiving, two things that could not be more opposite if they tried, Sleepy Hollow finally came back with its midseason finale. Was it good? Well, I wouldn’t say so. Major spoilers after the jump.
Hey Sleepyheads! It’s finally my turn to review the episode of the week, and I’m damn pleased that this was the one I got. “Go Where I Send Thee…” was a solid monster of the week episode with some long-reaching plot consequences, and I enjoyed the heck out of it.
This week on Sleepy Hollow, there’s a new police Sheriff, Jenny is back in jail, Irving’s in jail, Ichabod doesn’t understand why banks chain their pens to desks, the Headless Horseman fights Frankenstein’s Benjamin Franklin’s Monster, and Katrina is still a damsel-in-distress. Hit the jump to find out my thoughts and spoilers ahead.
