TV Series Premiere: Sleepy Hollow!

When i first got wind of the news that there will be a television series take on Sleepy Hollow it immediately caught my attention and interest because I really enjoyed the 1999 Tim Burton take on Washington Irving's 1820 short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

I just love me some Johnny Depp <3    

Although interested with the 2013 TV series version, I haven't really had time to check it out online but I was really happy since FOX was also showing it. Even if watching TV series online is popular these days I still like watching episodes on TV, it's always better watching on your wide screen than your laptop and you can scream and shout all you want ;) 

The first episode of the new Sleepy Hollow was part of Fox's Triple (Threat) Premiere - The Walking Dead, Agents of SHIELD and of course Sleepy Hollow and I watched all of it and really enjoyed too! :3 

So going back to Sleepy Hollow - I was very surprised because it was (very) loosely based on both the 1999 Tim Burton movie and the 1820 Washington Irving short story. 

That being said Sleepy Hollow opens up to a whole new list of possibilities as it combines the ageless hair raising tale of the headless horseman with witches, covens, history (why hello George Washington), religion and of course the good old horror thriller which we all love! 

 The below description coincides with the trailer (also found below) read ahead - watch the trailer and enjoy!  

Ichabod Crane played by Tom Wilson (who gives an excellent performance by the way) wakes up 250 years later in modern day Sleepy Hollow (one that is littered with Starbucks at every corner) I will admit I was a bit disappointed with the computer graphics during the first scene with the fog and all but its forgivable.      

Along side Ichabod Crane's awakening is also the awakening of who else but the headless horseman who is (of course) looking for his head and Ichabod is the man to stop that from happening.  

Ichabond is under police custody and gains an unwilling and unexpected partner in Lt. Abbie Mills who has had her own encounter with the supernatural which doesn't seem to lack in Sleepy Hollow. 

A new twist in the story is that the headless horseman is part of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse (in the book of Revelations see I told you there were mixing religion in this old tale) - nice connection there which makes the possibilities for more story lines even more plausible and which also means that the horseman has a whole bunch of team mates on his side. 

If your TV series genre includes the Supernatural (pun for both the genre the TV show) Buffy, Grimm and Once Upon a Time then make sure to check out Sleepy Hollow!
