Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

I could barely make it through the Almost Human trailer, let alone an episode.

Sleepy Hollow. I don't know. Ichabod Crane looks more like a 21st Century male model than the Ichabod Crane of literature. Some of the scenes look funny ("Starbucks"), some do not ("I'm authorized to use this gun"). The premise of conspiracies and competing covens and Biblical revelations is like a patchwork of derivations. And "from the producers of Star Trek" makes me want to run in the opposite direction.

But it's Sleepy Hollow and involves the Revolution, so I'll probably watch the first episode. It doesn't look like it will engage me, though.
