I was dubious about this I’ll admit. The film of “Sleepy Hollow” was, well, ok. Good work by Mr Depp and Mr Welken. Like a lot of Tim Burton films I thoroughly enjoyed it while I was actually watching it but afterward – meh. So now there is a TV show. The thing is, ‘Sleepy Hollow’ actually looks like it might be fun. In a daft and entertaining way.
Basically, Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman are brought forward in time or frozen or something, and find themselves in modern day Sleepy Hollow. I’m not sure how this could possibly pan out to something that will span a few series’ worth of action but whack in a bit of time travel and headless axe action, and fuck it, I’m sold. In the trailer they mention that the Headless Horseman is “Death” of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse fame, so maybe they will end up with three more mounted bad guys. I’m quite looking forward to this now. It probably helps that the trailer is insanely entertainingly fun.
