'Sleepy Hollow' Gets First 2nd-Season Renewal of 2013-2014 – TheWrap

via ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Gets First 2nd-Season Renewal of 2013-2014 – TheWrap.
 
My favorite new show of the fall has already been renewed! This is one of the fastest network TV renewals I can remember hearing about (I’m sure I’m missing one). It’s only been three episodes! I know that cable networks, like HBO, pull this card all the time (I remember when HBO renewed Game of Thrones the night of it’s premiere), but it’s rare to see a network do it.
Also, I didn’t know that they were sticking with a 13 episode season. This should be great. As we see with cable and British television, shorter seasons lead to great acclaim and better storytelling, so I’m excited to see what a 13 episode season across two seasons could hold. This could be the beginning of a trend on network television.
Until the next episode (or article on the greatness that is Nicole Beharie)!

What I Watched Today – Sleepy Hollow "For The Triumph of Evil"

So there’s both the Icabod recap AND a “last time on…”? AND a full theme? That seems like a lot and/or a time filler to fill the episode length? I’m sure soon enough little by little, each of those (except maybe the “last time on…” will dwindle. As most shows grow, they need the time, so themes get cut to a blip and a title card.
“A really weird dream” “Ah really? What was I doing?” #hahah #shipping
Wow that eye pop was, ooh! *shivers* Really great job at the eyes popping, great effect. The sound really helped sell it. They’re doing a great job with the creepy factor.
“You had a prophetic dream” “…captial W Witness” Yeah, more like capital W Witch? I thought Icabod was the other Witness, but it’s probably actually Jenny.
What happened to the girls’ parents? Is Mills their original last name? Or a foster parent name? I have so many questions about this part of their backstory right now.
I also wonder about Morales, Abbie’s exboyfriend. Is he apart of the thick of things? I can’t believe he is just the exboyfriend who has nothing to do with her wanting to leave for Quantico and get out of there? And the Captain’s interest in him and their relationship…
LOL at Orlando Jones calling for and tweeting fanfiction requests and now every time something happens between them, people will be thinking of the fanfic possibilities. Like that scene where they wake up half-dressed and alive on life. Haha.
This show is really shaping up! I enjoyed this episode and am excited to see where they are going to take it. Currently they’ve got a case of the week deal going on (as is typical of FOX) but hopefully, an arc will continue to develop. If the writers do it smartly, they can have an arc and follow FOX’s villain-of-the-week rule.
I’m staying tuned!

What I Watched Today – Sleepy Hollow

Hmm I hope that introduction narration/recap thing isn’t always like that. Maybe it’ll work with some retooling, but it was awkward and kind of jumpy…? Yeah, the tape may say he did that himself, but uhm is no one concerned that IT ISN’T POSSIBLE!?
In this episode, they “revealed” that Icabod has an eidetic memory. Ugh. I’m liking this show, but either the writers or the network forced that line in the excuse away things they want Icabod to automatically know or remember (but watch him “forget” something later that would have been useful. Watch them forget they gave him this character trait. OR overstate it). I would have preferred if they showed us his eidetic memory for several episodes before stating it as a fact; here it was forced exposition. Or just have him have an eidetic memory and not mention it. Viewers aren’t as dumb as writers/networks think they are. (Well, maybe they are. But I wish they weren’t. Raise the LCD, don’t dumb down towards it. Hopefully now that they see this show has a pretty big and wide, varied audience, they can realize that we are enjoying it without thinking we won’t get everything.
