Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

But to the average, non-German/German speaking viewer, it came across well.

REALLY liked this episode... So much better than the Sandman from last week... I felt this really moved things along.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, I have forgotten a great deal of the German I learned in college. I was sitting there thinking what did they say?

The guy playing Crane keeps me coming back. He plays the role with the right amount of aplomb, smugness and bewilderment, and I like the sisters Mills.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

^^^ Agreed - he's definitely well cast and one of the best aspects of the show. I really like the two sisters as well and I'm glad that Clancy Brown is still playing a side-role, contingent to the plot. I must admit, though, I'm kind of stuck in Grimm-land and keep expecting the police chief to be shown to know more about what's going on in the town than he is revealing.

And what WAS the deal with the priest from the pilot, anyway? He has barely been mentioned since, yet he was proven to have been around as long as Crane, even longer considering his apparent advanced age. He was cut down by the Hessian and that was it! No real backstory or any other explanation why there are a number of immortals bouncing about this quiet little New York hamlet.

I'm just curious, however, when they're going to put Crane in something other than an 18th century greatcoat. That thing must be getting a bit ripe, having been on him for the past 200-some-odd years...

I loved Abbie giving her sister a five-second recap of Ichabod's 18th-century origins, all very matter-of-fact.

I also thought more would be made of the priest. They made a point of showing him at the diner and showing him back in time. Then he just gets whacked by the horsemen. See ya!

Were we to infer that he was some type of sentinel? But, Crane's body was out in the boonies. Is he one of the witches from Katrina's coven?

Why give him lingering shots if nothing more it to be made of it?

I would totally love it if Mills Febrezed Crane.

Yes, the opening scene with the "Northstar" punchline was hilarious. And both the Mills sisters are really hot, though Nicole Beharie is the better actress.

Did anyone else notice a spark of attraction between Crane and Jenny? Oh, I bet Abbie would hate that.

Kurtzman & Orci appear to be fond of the photographic-memory trope. IIRC, Olivia on Fringe had the same ability.

I actually totally forgot about the priest until you posted. Hopefully they'll get to that eventually and haven't decided to ignore it.

I've been having the same thought. I would think they would have to get him some new clothes eventually. They did show him washing his clothes in the hotel/motel sink in the second episode, so at least we know he's cleaning it at least some. You'd still think he'd want some new clothes eventually though.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

^The trailer for next week's episode showed Crane questioning Abbie whether his hair fit in to current day. I would guess that the episode will explore a little more of the fish out of water aspect of the show than we've seen yet.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Being away, I just got caught up on the last two episodes. I really like this show, a lot. It's just got enough of everything to make it intriguing. Someone earlier mentioned casting, without a doubt this is making the show work. Tom Mison just works as Ichabod, he just exudes the character. While I think she is the weaker link, Nicole Beharie Abbie does have good chemistry with Ichabod. While I don't think I would call this the best show on television, it's one of the most enjoyable.

Do random New York Native Americans keep dream weaving tea and scorpions around just incase they have to fight deamons from Dante's inferno on a moments notice?

Decent episode.
As a German I have to point out the German speech parts were unconvincing.
Thick American accents on phonetically learned text.
I actually needed the subtitles to understand it all.
I wouldn't be so sure. IMDB says that the music teacher was played by a guy from Denmark and at least one of the others *is* German. So, those weren't thick American accents you heard for the most part...

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I have finally caught up with this series, and I kind of love it. It is a fun, funny, fantasy that just makes me happy when I watch it. (that being said, it still has moments that are actually creepy...the demon in the mirror, John Cho's "mirror scene").

I love the relationships between the characters already. I feel like this show was firing in all cylinders right out of the gate.

I'm also part of the crowd that is grateful that Clancy Brown will have at least a peripheral presence on the show.

I'm actually excited to see the next episode.

I'm curious what kind of reaction it will get over there with it depicting the British forces as demon worshiping/end of days bringing bad guys. Though they do seem to be trying to side step it with the Hessians a bit.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I do hope some of the demon-story arcs go beyond the "one hour and it's done" formula.. If I find any fault with the show, it's that the resolutions have been pretty quickly sewn up... I'm hoping it doesn't just come down to a "demon of the week" type of thing... A couple of two-parters wouldn't hurt.
