In this modern-day twist on Washington Irvings classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murderous rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and only one of the many formidable foes that Ichabod must face to protect not only Sleepy Hollow, but the world. As Ichabod finds himself in 2013s Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town he no longer recognises and grapples to understand. Teaming up with Lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie, 42, The Good Wife, Shame), a young cop who has her own supernatural experiences, the two embark on a mission to stop the evil that has awoken along with Ichabod and that now is seeping into this once-sleepy town.
I saw the trailers for Sleepy Hollow and it looked like something that I would enjoy, especially as I had liked the movie, so I was keen to watch this rendition of the tale.
This follows Ichabod Crane, a man who died two hundred and fifty years ago at the exact same time as he killed a man now known as the Headless Horseman. What we uncover is a world of witch craft, that the horsemen of the apocalypse exist and that Moloch is the ultimate evil who is still trying to take over the world. Crane and Detective Abagail Mills unite to try and stop Moloch, all the while learning that what they are doing now, they were always destined to be doing so.
The acting in this is pretty well done, as with any new show it can take a little getting used to, There is a good mixture of humor, action, drama and paranormal aspects in this show, so it has a bit of everything that I enjoy and keeps me interested in seeing where they go from here. A good half of this season focuses on the various characters and what lead them all to where they are now and whilst it wasn't the best show I've seen in the past I enjoyed it enough to want to watch the second season.
