    May 14, 2013, 6:26 PM - Sleepy Hollow TV Series.. #1

    Sleepy Hollow TV Series..



    Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman's vision for the series sees the familiar Ichabod Crane living in a modern-day Sleepy Hollow, where he teams up with a female sheriff to not only solve the strange and supernatural happenings taking place in town, but also to unravel each mystery’s connection to the larger battle between good and evil..



    Really don't high hopes for this, but will give it a watch.. Seems to want to be ripping of The X-Files and National Treasure while it's at it..

    Bad marketing (come on, how many times are you going to do the "heads will roll" bit on Sleepy Hollow, huh? Never seen that one before...), but the concept might turn out to be interesting.

    It's The Headless Horseman legend mixed with good and evil mythos, brought to the 21st century, and blended with National Treasure.

    Could be interesting and fun if done right. If not, it'll defy the laws of physics by sucking and blowing at the same time.

    It can definitely go either way.. I'll watch a few episodes to see how it goes, but mainly watching cause I'm a John Cho fan..

    It's not Burton, but the Hessian looks pretty cool. I'll give it a watch.

    I hope this is good. I thought I saw Clancy Brown in one of the recent previews.

    Looks interesting but at the same I don't think that it will have any staying power, I predict that it will last no more than 2 seasons before FOX ends up pulling the plug on it.

    I liked it and wondered how long it would take before someone makes something from it. Some really cool props so far... the main broad axe, the skull in a jar and the 'bible'.

    Caught the first episode last night. I have to admit I wasn't going in with very high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised, however! I thought it was pretty good and pretty original as scripted television goes.

    Of course, almost all the shows I enjoyed over the past few seasons have wound up cancelled: Terra Nova, Alcatraz, FlashForward, New Amsterdam, Awake...

    I was planning on watching this but I will admit, I got turned off only because while watching the NFL this Sunday, every commercial break showed the preview. I just got tired of it. I recorded it at least so I will watch it eventually.

    Watched the premiere last night and loved it. Although I'm doing my best not to get too attached to it, Fox has a habit of cancelling good, original TV shows. 'Awake' is a good example, it was a good show, good acting, and original and interesting idea, and they axed it.

    That being said, I really did like it, in the world of horrible reality tv, it's nice to see something new and refreshing for a change. But again, it's Fox, so I wont get my hopes up lol

    Same here...I was pleasantly surprised, and it wasn't as hokey as I thought it would be. It moved along pretty quick, so I hope they take time later to explain some of the "hows" and "whys" of the early (flashback) scenes. One thing I found interesting, was that apparently no one in Sleepy Hollow has ever heard of Washington Irving, or make any reference (or connection to) to the original 'Legend'.

    The Hessian (or, "horseman", as they called him) was pretty badass...much beefier than Ray Park's 1999 version. I can see a possible mask/costume in future....

    I got it on the DVR right now. But I heard it blows biggie balls and is kinda crazy stupid. I'll watch it tonight and see for myself. Also heard that they are looking at more than one horse man for the whole series..Like 4 if you know what I'm saying.

    I didn't go in with high hopes either but thought it was pretty dang good myself. Set up the season pass as it ended.

    as far as an original take on an old story they did damn good. but really.... some parts were entertaining, Crane messing with any and every piece of modern tech to come his way (auto car windows and a flash light). i started to get disinterested when it became clear that apparently the entire east coast is loaded with either good or bad witches; that and the hessian carrying a shotgun, why bother if you have a friggen axe from hell to carry around.
    sadly my wife loved it, i will watch the next one to see if they blew all there goodish ideas in the first episode or not.

    edited in-- they could have so easily won me over if only they choose to play Johnny Cash's "the man comes around" during the end credits other than some more rolling stones, but that's just me

    The whole everyone's a witch/warlock of good or evil made me immediately think of Grimm, where everyone's some sort of creature or another.

    Doesn't mean the concept can't work well, though.

    I hated it! They had me until the 18th Century Headless Horseman had the skill and know how to use a 12-gage shotgun that has explosive shot AND how to use an automatic assault weapon. Not to mention how he knew how to chamber a round on the 12-gage without eyes! I give it 2-3 episodes and cancelled!
