When I saw last week’s preview, I couldn’t believe that of all the episodes I could possibly review, I was going to get the one centered around Nick Hawley. Out of our whole review team, I’m probably the one who dislikes him the most, so I was prepared for the worst. But surprisingly, the episode turned out to be… pretty good! In an interview, Tom Mison said that the producers “have been listening and are aware of what is popular and less popular,” and the episode featured some truly epic livetweeting by Orlando Jones. If Sleepy Hollow keeps going on like this, well, who knows?
After a pretty bad midseason finale, I was hoping the midseason premiere would come back and the show would be stronger than ever. While that didn’t exactly happen, Sleepy Hollow did come back with some interesting surprises.
Another week, another episode of Sleepy Hollow with an annoyingly sexist trope. At least it was handled marginally better than it has been in shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Supernatural. Join me after the jump for soul-sucking, succubi, and spoilers. Continue reading →
Last night’s Sleepy Hollow was heavy on the women and the Ichabod backstory, and I loved every minute of it. Except for, you know, that whole part with the ridiculous villain. Seriously, Sleepy Hollow would be killing it lately, except why did they have this villain? Why would they ruin their excellent track record at female characters for this?
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.
Sleepy Hollow is finally hitting its stride. After an underwhelming premiere and a so-so follow-up, this is the first episode I’ve really, truly enjoyed. It had the perfect mixture of laughs (at Ichabod’s expense) and feels (the Mills family feels!). We even got the introduction of a sassy new character, the amoral Hawley, who I hope sticks around for a few more episodes, at least. Hit the jump for my thoughts.
