Sleepy Hollow

OK, I know I am going out a limb here. I have no desire to be thought of as a fanboy, or, worse yet, a Twilight-o-phile. But, I am really digging this show. I love over-arching themes drawn from Revelations (when they're well done). Being one of God's chosen in a great battle of good and evil is a dream of mine. I also love the character of Ichabod Crane. He's almost a Colonial James Bond. Very educated, proper English upbringing, but cool as the other side of the pillow when evil shit starts happening.

Even though it is set in our time, it makes me jones for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. It is based on eerie and creepy and all-is-not-as-it-seems.

Oh, and as a final bit of irony, Clancy Brown guests in the pilot as a sheriff. You may remember Mr. Brown as the Curgan from Highlander (the original). I really like him and was happy to see he was in the trailers before the series actually started.

SPOILER FOLLOWS (highlight to read)

Well, as fate would have it, he is the Horseman's first victim. That's right, he loses his head.


  1. Yes, it's one of my favorite new shows of the year. Not only was he the Curgan, also Zimm best part of the terrible Starship Troopers movie. "MEDIC.."

  2. I would not say that it is a great show, but it is a blast and I have been enjoying Sleepy Hollow so far.

  3. I absolutely detest the Starship Troopers movie. If they would have called it Space Marine Commando: OB-Gyn I would have merely dismissed it. But to associate it with Mr Heinlein is tragic and draws my eternal ire (which I'm sure causes all concerned many sleepless nights).
