The Headless Horseman isn’t just on an on-screen terror for the cast of “Sleepy Hollow.”
The decapitated villain made an impromptu appearance on stage at PaleyFest Wednesday which not only shocked a packed Dolby Theatre, but also terrified the panel’s moderator, Sandra Gonzalez of Entertainment Weekly. Although he managed to take the room by surprise, he didn’t fare so well as he departed the stage. Instead of making a dramatic exit, the Headless Horseman lost the blade to his axe, resulting in a guffaw from the crowd.

The cast and crew of Fox‘s supernatural drama Sleepy Hollow materialized Wednesday evening at PaleyFest to tease the fates of the show’s characters going into fall’s second season. Although January’s S1 finale left the cast in various states of distress and spaces between spaces — Purgatory being one such locale — cast member John Cho‘s presence was testament to the fact that on Sleepy Hollow, as Ep Mark Goffman noted, “You can be dead but that doesn’t mean you’re gone.” Related: Fall 2013 Freshman Series Scorecard: Time Slot Gainers and Slackers The show’s producers promised the return of John Noble as Henry Parrish aka Jeremy Crane aka The Horseman of War in Season 2.

The Paley Center for Media is a non-profit organization with locations in New York and Los Angeles, whose mission is to “lead the discussion about the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, radio, and emerging platforms for the professional community and media-interested public.”
Its annual PaleyFest, though, is what has probably brings it the most attention. A different panel every night, from some of the biggest TV shows currently on the air — and this year, two that have been over for quite some time. It kicked off with a Veronica Mars reunion panel, but the best news for Losties is the Lost 10-year reunion panel that takes place tonight.

A rip-roaring finale makes the wait for Sleepy Hollow's second season an excruciating one...
This review contains spoilers.
1.12 The Indispensable Man & 1.13 Bad Blood
Now that was a finale! Even if your expectations for the final two-parter of Sleepy Hollow’s first season were sky high, I doubt you were expecting the sheer amount of excitement, adventure, information and cliffhangers that were given to us in the end. The Indispensible Man and Bad Blood often came off like the writers wanted to cram half a season’s worth of story and intrigue into just eighty minutes, and though that resulted in the whole thing feeling a tad overwhelming, it also means that there’ll be no dallying around when we return for season two (though, with Fox abandoning normal Us scheduling practice, who knows when that will be?)
So much went down that it »
Sleepy Hollow wrapped up its freshman season Monday night with a finale packed full of major twists and a whopper of a cliffhanger that left pretty much every major character in a terrible, life-threatening position. (Head thee to EW’s Sleepy Hollow recap for all the details.)
With Ichabod (Tom Mison) buried six feet under (while still alive), Abbie (Nicole Beharie) trapped in Purgatory, and Katrina (Katia Winter) kidnapped by the headless horseman, executive producer Mark Goffman had a lot to answer for when we called him up after viewing the heart-stopping episode. Luckily Goffman, who penned the extraordinary second »

The final two episodes of "Sleepy Hollow" were full of plenty of revelations -- John Cho's Andy Brooks lived, then died, then lived, then died; Irving was transferred upstate and missed All the good stuff; Katrina's soul was freed how?! -- but nothing compared to the brain-melting final 15 minutes.
Yes, just like the cast promised, your head definitely exploded at the conclusion of the second episode, "Bad Blood." We never saw it coming -- John Noble's Henry is actually Jeremy, Ichabod and Katrina's son. But wait, that's not all! He is also the second horseman. We repeat: He Is The Second Horseman.
"I'm much more than that -- your binding spell had no effect because there was nothing to bind," he tells his parents. "The second horseman was unearthed over a decade ago, on this very day under the darkening sun. And, as Moloch prophesized, has waited all this time to take form. »
After a month hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returns Monday night (Fox, 9 p.m. Et) with an episode that star Tom Mison promises will be a scary one. “It’s a constantly tense one,” he says. “I like that the show does simmer, and then there are a few moments that jump out at you.” The hour explores more of Jenny Mills’ (Lyndie Greenwood) past, Mison teases, “and the fact that she was once possessed — who wasn’t.” As the clip below reveals, Sheriff Corbin (Clancy Brown) helped Jenny through the possession, which had an effect on her relationship with her sister, »

One of the most common arguments I hear in support of changing a comic book characters race is that, race doesn't matter for that particular character so someone like The Flash could be changed to Hispanic because there's nothing that directly links him to being white. While this is half true, if this is the case then the pendulum must swing both ways, that's kinda how equality works. Race is not important or pivotal with characters like John Stewart, Cyborg, War Machine, Falcon, Blade, Spawn, Luke Cage, Black Lightning, Steel, Mr Terrific, Simon Baz, Bishop, Static, Miles Morales and many other characters, so how would you have feel if they announced Daniel Craig as Blade or if they announced John Cho as John Stewart? Personally, I would be appalled and I'm not arguing that any white comic book characters race should never be changed either, I'm arguing that any comic »
With 2013 coming to an end in just a few short hours, it's that time of year where the the team here at Flickering Myth to reveal our picks for the very best cinematic offerings of the past twelve months.
As usual, the writing team here have put together individual lists of their personal favourites, which we've used to compile our overall selection for the Top Ten Movies of 2013. However, unlike previous years, we've made a slight change this time around; with most of our writers being UK based, we've always used UK release dates as the basis for our list, meaning that films from the previous calendar year have often made the cut.
This is something we've debated at length, and this time around our we've decided to go with UK release dates once again, but omitting 2012 movies from the final top ten (although you can see how that list »
