Is worthy to follow
There’s nothing sleepy about this supernatural, apocalyptic take on Washington Irving’s classic tale.
a message on a telephone as though he is dictating a letter (somewhat surreal) and berating the people of today for actually paying for bottled water instead of taking it from the tap (so true) are just so funny.
And the fact that he walks around in two-century-old clothes while trying to assimilate present-day jargon and technology gives the series a muchneeded break from its darker subject matter which revolves around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Other than Mison, the show also benefits from actress Nicole Beharie who plays no-nonsense police officer Lt Abbie Mills, who is quite a match for Ichabod. She and Mison also have great chemistry and good comedic timing, an added benefit for the series.
While the story is not completely solid, the characters move it along nicely enough to keep us tuning in every week. Yes, Sleepy Hollow makes many references to American history but this is inconsequential because these “facts” are tweaked to suit the show’s mythology anyway, so it becomes easy enough for the audience to ride along with Ichabod, Mills and Co.
Sleepy Hollow is aired every Wednesday at 9.50pm on Fox (Astro Ch 710).
