Sepinwall's review.

quote:

I honestly can't tell you if FOX's "Sleepy Hollow," the first new show of the 2013-14 network TV season, is good or bad and I've already watched the pilot episode (which airs Monday at 9 p.m.) twice. I suspect it's bad, and that it will be proven to be bad over the course of its first season. But if it's bad, it's in a memorable, weird, fun way. It's a show that goes for broke, does not apologize for its excesses and is never, ever boring. In a freshman class full of forgettable new dramas, it stands out by virtue of embracing every possible way in which it could go awry, because ultimately being boring is worse than being bad.

Oh poo poo.

I just realized that this show is like Nyte Blade from Saints Row. A sense of gothic style transplanted to modern times (though not nearly as sexualized), dramatic overacting (done intentionally here), a story of star-crossed love at its emotional center...

Sorry to be nerdy, felt compelled to share.

I think they're supposed to get a full order next season, so my guess it's part of some larger strategy to eventually replace American Idol and X Factor.

No, next year is only 13 episodes. I think the idea may have something to do with the fact that Kevin Bacon doesn't want to do full 22-episode seasons of The Following, so they're looking for something to trade off with it.

Isn't The Following a flaming dumpster fire though?

Well yes, but it's a flaming dumpster fire that people watch. The finale pulled a 2.7 in the 18-49 demo (already solid in this day and age); after DVR increases, which is apparently becoming a major network strategy these days, that number inflates to a 4.1. So it's a hit, to be sure.

I'm perfectly willing to believe that Abbie is one of those people who take tap water horror stories too seriously. I know plenty of otherwise reasonable people who think similarly.

Two weeks after buying my Brita pitcher I was told that my town had some of the cleanest tap water in the state.

I sure like having cold water on demand, though.

Here's how you know Sleepy Hollow is popular: the show's finale just pushed out The Following so it could air as a special two hour event, with episodes 12 and 13 running back to back on Jan. 20.

Apparently the plan still is to air The Following's season 2 premiere after football on Sunday.

Good day, "YouTube."

Despite the name my technologically knowledgeable acquaintance Lt. Mills used on this account, which I will not be compelled to repeat as it contains several numbers in place of letters and possibly mocking innuendos, I am Ichabod Crane, a history teacher formerly at Oxford, a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and a personal agent of General George Washington himself, who you will commonly know as the first President of these United States.

No, his wooden teeth were not obvious to those of us at the time. They were well-crafted.

Presently, in this pictographical missive, I will be airing my thoughts on last night's episode of Reign and the historical inaccuracies therein. There are several, and I will numerate them all forthwith.

I want ten episodes of this uploaded onto YouTube over the summer.

What's cool is how they kind of set up Jenny to be the one that saves their collective asses. Somehow.

Her neck looked kind of broken, but whether it is or it isn't, that's what we refer to as "a minor setback" in Sleepy Hollow.

I was wondering why they let that news out because it seems like a major spoiler to what happens, but actually death isn't really that big of a deal on this show, so...

Death in this show works the same way as it does in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
