So, I'm coming out pro-Sleepy Hollow, which kind of surprises me. They're playing with every cliche (like Ichabod in the middle of the road with cars rushing at him which was in last year's Dark Shadows and every other time travel story ever), but it looks like they're well aware of the tropes they're playing with. And the cast is appealing and look! Not everyone is white!
Just a few things that I gotta snark at.
Cause Oxbridge professors ended up fighting in colonial wars all the time. Privilege had its privileges.
And do the writers even know what an Admiralty court is? (Hint: maritime jutisdiction.).
Also I take it this is a universe in which Washington Irving never wrote his story, cause in the real-world Sleepy Hollow, they all know it. Which is okay, I'm just saying.
But Abbie is great and the show is smart about its cliches and look, Orlando Jones! And cute guy, though I wish he could keep wearing that 18th century coat but I'm guessing he won't be looking at historical sewing blogs on the Internet like I do.
Insert obligatory Kurgan reference.
