I didn't see much chemistry between the two main actors, Mison and Beharie, but then again this was only the pilot. The preview of upcoming episodes looked exciting.

I just watched the show, and this thing is seriously the coolest thing I've seen on TV since the premiere of Once Upon a Time.

Orci and Kurtzman have channeled their inner Tim Burton and mashed together his takes on Dark Shadows and Sleepy Hollow to create a dramatic thrill ride that has the potential to be on the air for a very long time if FOX gives it the support it deserves.
Fringe had 10 million viewers at 9pm Monday.

Then Fox moved it to Thursdays at 9pm and the ratings dropped 60% in a month. But everyone thinks they gave it a chance because no one remembers how badly they treated it for 4 years.

We shall see...

I might have to check this out On Demand, sounds like it must be better than I was expecting.

It's completely absurd. And actually quite fun.

So, I guess the story of Ichabod and the horseman does not exist in-universe.

Yeah, I was wondering about that. Once he said his name and there was no reaction I figure that was that.

I enjoyed it. I didn't see any 'romantic' aspect at the end at all. I think all he really said was that he told her to stay away from Crane.
Cho's character was stroking her face and telling her he wanted to take care of her. He was mega-creepy there, given that he's just pistol-whipped her and was tying her up in the back seat of his cruiser while he did it.

I did ask my wife why they arrested him since it really wasn't clear as you say.
Umm... pistol-whipped a fellow officer, tied her up in the back seat of his cruiser, aided and abetted a suspect in multiple homicides. It couldn't have been much clearer.

Evidently Phillip Iscove. He conceived of the series initially, and since the other three credited co-creators (Kurtzman, Orci, and Wiseman) are all prominent, busy people, I figure Iscove is the point man on this show.

Shows that are treated badly by their networks are unlikely to last anywhere near four years. Four years is a very respectable run for any network show, especially a genre show.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

It sounds like they're shooting for a seven-year run, considering that's when "The End" is supposed to happen in this world. Ambitious...hope they can make it and keep it interesting.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

It wasn't bad but nothing about it really interests me. If it does turn into something I might check back, but otherwise, I'm out. And yes, the jump-cut demon was creepy and I was surprised that they only had John Cho for one episode and Clancy Brown for five minutes.

I wasn't planning on watching this show but I sat down to watch it with my wife last night and to my surprise I really liked it. I'm looking forward to seeing how this show plays out.

I suspect that Brown may have a recurring voice role, given the importance of his recorded notes in cluing Abby into the conspiracy. Brown has been a prolific voice artist in animation since the '90s, so I wouldn't be surprised if they brought him in for what will mainly be a voice role.

Plus there could be flashbacks. And since it's a supernatural show, he could come back in other ways too.

Actually, you'd be wrong on that front. I actually found the answer to my own query after I posted my question initially courtesy of an interview that Orci, Kurtzman, and Wiseman did with Collider. The man running the ship for the series is actually former Studio 66 on the Sunset Strip showrunner Mark Goffman.

As for Orci, Kurtzman, and Wiseman and their level of involvement, they said in the aforementioned interview that they've been personally involved with the show since it started and, thanks to the strength of Goffman and the other writers they've surrounded him with, they fully intend to continue to be personally involved with the show - despite their very busy schedules - for as long as it's on the air.

One of the first things I said to my husband when no one had heard of Ichabod Crane.

That story is an American legend--how many do we have? That, Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan...what else?

The whole "two covens infiltrating...." We won't initially know if a character is good, bad, or unrelated to the covens. Clancy Broen seemed to be unrelated, but investigating. Orlando Jones?

Yes, it was a little weird that he was arrested for walking in front of a police car. However, when you take a look at who arrested him it becomes clear why he was arrested.

^Wow, a double post with another post in between. You don't see that very often. I wonder how that happened.
