Storyline

During the American War of Independence, insurgent Ichabod Crane, an English-born professor and civil rights pioneer, is among the pile of victims of a headless, ax-wielding Redcoat. Two centuries later, both are resurrected when their graves are disturbed. Sheriff August Corbin, whose county includes Sleepy Hollow village, is among the latest axed victims. However he leaves notes which are found by his headstrong deputy, lieutenant Abbie Mills, and the arrested, fascinating Ichabod, whom captain Irving orders to be evaluated in a psych ward. Ichabod gets visits from the ghost of his wife Katrina, who reveals being a good witch from an order fighting the evil one in league with the four riders of the Apocalypse, which includes Death, in the shape of the Redcoat.

A Strong Pilot Masterfully Blending it's Visuals, Action, and Mystery
16 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been waiting for this show for months now and I got exactly what I was expecting, a visually stunning show that not only relies on it's scenery but it's story as well which looks like it'll be able to be stretched out to a lot of episodes with the potential of not being generic. It starts off with a high octane energy and action sequence that leave you in "aww." The Sleepy Hollow story is taken to a modern setting which actually wouldn't have been as strong as if it was in an environment in the past, personally I see more episodes and interesting characters if the setting wasn't messed with. The duo between Nicole Beharie (Abbie Mills) and Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) is obviously not fully formed but it seems that it'll be able to play out right because of each character's internal conflicts that aren't at all cliché which is a rarity in t.v. These days. The tone of the episode was completely serious and just a touch of comedy could have been able to progress an already enjoyable ride. Overall, I will stay tuned to future episodes mostly due to the fact of visionary director Len Wiseman's directing/involvement and of course how couldn't you be interested in a show created from Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek Franchise writers).
