Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I've found Almost Human an almost complete failure. The science fiction is cliched and cursory, the character writing is weak, the female characters are poorly handled, and it's basically just a pastiche of really violent '80s cop movies, which are not a genre I follow. By contrast, Sleepy Hollow may have a ridiculous premise, but it really commits to it and fleshes it out imaginatively, and it does great work with its characters. If AH is doing poorly in the ratings, I'm neither surprised nor disappointed, but I hope having it as a lead-in doesn't hurt Sleepy Hollow.
