^It says a recurring role, not a regular one. Still, it's good news.

I'd pay to watch John Noble watch paint dry.

Must catch the pilot somewhere.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Saw a preview recently, where our eponymous Dullahan wasn't alone.One of his co-horts looks like Herne the Hunter, a type of Green Man, like Cernunnos.

The Germans have their own version called "the wild huntsman", which makes me think we will see some of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Hunt

It may be that he is just one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Finally saw this and it was just as nutty and ridiculous as I had heard. And also a surprising amount of fun.

Unfortunately most of that was probably because of how fast they sped through the crazy, convoluted setup. Now that that's out of the way, it seems likely the show will slow down and become more of a formulaic Grimm kind of show or something.

But the lead characters have a pretty fun dynamic together, so I'll probably stick with it for a little while at least.

There's huge differences between the Headless Horsemen of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and dullahan. Yes, they share similarities in that they're both headless horsemen, but one is an Irish faerie who wields a bone whip and acts similarly to a banshee, and the other is a ghost who goes around decapitating travelers. The one in this show is neither, being quite literally Death itself and one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Similar, but wholly different.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

He isn't one of the horsemen, I think he is only supposed to release the horsemen.

No, I think he's supposed to be one of the Big Four.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

(Pestilence is from later revisions.)

The first seal lets loose a rider on a white horse who is Conquest.

The second seal lets loose a rider on a red horse who is war.

The third seal lets loose a rider on a black horse who is famine

The fourth seal lets loose a rider on a pale horse who is death.

(OH! Christ is the lamb opening the seals! Well that muddies the waters.)

3 more seals.

Soul of Martyrs, earthquakes and 7 angels.

But the other three horse have been waiting for 240 years, and they may have gone native, and that lamb might have lost interest in the entire endeavour.

Because of the exceeding success of antibiotics, didn't Terry Pratchet insist that God replace pestilence with pollution?

^^^ I was under impression that Jesus was the lamb when he was on earth the first time. The second coming is that of the lion, IIRC.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Am I ever surprised I liked this show... the leads are appealing, especially the young black foxy lady.... has a bit of the Alcatraz lead female vibe going, although not as top-heavy...

Will Noble call her various different names like on Fringe? Astrid? Astro?

I kid, and I'm on board for the next episode, surprisingly.

Forward planning and oversight is all done up in Heaven.

JC doesn't come downstairs to stick his foot up the Antichrists ass till after Lucy's kid has been top dog on Earth for 7 years, forcing sin, compromise and collaboration nixxing the lucky survivors intermediate chances of still entering Heaven.

The Messiah is only waiting seven years to break up this ruckus because it's expected of him, no matter what awful shit the Whore of Babylon is getting up to... Although if he wanted to stand up to dad, it's conceivable Jesus could rebelliously shave a couple years off the End of Days... But that sort of out of the box thinking is what landed Beezlebob in the basement.

Avoiding instant execution by natural disaster and death squads seems to be a silly idea since the longer you stay on Earth, the greater the certainty there is that you will cock it up, ending foreverhereafter slow-cooking in Hell's pit.

The Devil is God's first dutiful bouncer and Petey is just wanking about with his thumb up his ass "look at my pearly gates" hogging all the glory.
