Crane: I can't fathom how such beauty (The Manor)could fall into such ruin.

Abbie: Or why anybody who dated George Clooney would want to buy it.

Crane: An Irishman?

It reminded me of Grindl from Xena: Warrior Princess.

Make that a very short Grindl.

mini-Grindl...

Could've done without the chief's daughter and ex-wife sideline, since it seemed pointless... Focus needs to be square on the leads and their respective timeframes, I think. The chief is okay but as a distant supporting character.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Why I like Captain Irving more then Elementary's Captain Gregson. In Sleepy Hallow, Irving was an unbeliever until he witnessed with his own eyes the headless horse man. He's now fully on the team, a facilitator and go between now. Captain Gregson on Elementary continues to dismiss Sherlocks initial findings, even after two years of them almost always being correct. You would think after almost two years, when Holmes says something like "She committed suicide" he would stop and go, I believe you lets focus all our attention on that. No we get the dumb cop Gregson, "how did he become Captain?" It looks like a suicide so thats the only thing I will consider. Even with his speech at the end of the last episode, I don't buy it. He will still only consider what his narrow cop mentality allows him to.

^That's a very strange reading of Gregson. If he had so little faith in Holmes, he wouldn't keep bringing him in at all. He questions Holmes's initial interpretations because it's his job to question, to insist on hard evidence that can be used to make a solid arrest and prosecution. He'd really be an inept cop if he arrested people based on Holmes's word alone. I'm sure most police captains treat their detectives the same way: pushing them, challenging them, making sure they're aware of the gaps in their theories and of the need to put an airtight case together, one that's more than just conjecture and can stand up in court.

And actually that's flat-out wrong at least judging by the last Elementary, where Gregson praised Holmes and said if you don't like it, leave to his crew. So he's evolved nicely.

I agree. It felt like an excuse for a refresher on how very few people know what is really going on. "Can't tell the ex because no one will believe me". But we already had had that the other week when another cop asked out Abby.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I liked getting learn a little more about Irving. Sure it didn't have much to do with the main arc, but I thought it was nice to get to learn a bit more about him.
Overall, I thought it was a pretty good episode. Nothing mind blowing, but we did get some interesting new developments, like Ichabod's son, and I thought some of the stuff with the house was pretty cool.

Abby and Crane need to step up their game and prepare themselves better for the upcoming battles. Icabob wasn't even carrying a weapon in that house until he found that axe. It they want to take on the forces of darkness that's not going to cut it.

You want them to be Sam and Dean.

I want a scene where Sam and Dean are getting into the Impala in the background, just in an easter-eggy kind of way.

I could see Ichabod driving an Impala.

But seriously, Ichabod should carry a gun. He was a soldier. Walking into situations where you might run into the Headless Horseman armed with only a flashlight is incredibly dumb.

Hmmm.

What judge would grant him a pistol permit?

I too was bored to tears by the Captain's family soap opera. That's not the kind of scene I watch this show for.
