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.

Trivia

Soon after production was started and promos were being broadcast the town of Sleepy Hollow saw a boost in tourism. During the town's annual Halloween events such as haunted hay rides, graveyard tours, costume contests, and the like a huge spike in tourism occurred from around the country and around the world. The town had hoped to buy some advertising for tourism but felt network advertising would far too expensive. See more »

Goofs

Abbie is shown to be subordinate to Captain Irving. However, upon the death of Sheriff Corbin, Abbie (as his second in command) would become acting Sheriff until the next election. Sheriffs outrank police captains within their own counties. Even if this is not true in Westchester County, police and sheriffs are two different entities and one cannot give orders to the other (although Irving could tell Abbie to butt out of his investigation, as he often does).

Quotes

Lt. Abbie Mills: Two hundred and fifty years, huh? Civil War didn't wake you? Noisy neighbors to the south. Did you get up to pee? Don't know about you, but I'm getting up to pee every 75, 80 years.
Ichabod Crane: Are you quite finished? Because most of what you say is unintelligible gibberish to me. It's like watching a chicken cluck. And when did it become acceptable for ladies to wear trousers?

This just went on my weekly calender.

I am an advocate of reading books rather than watching adaptations, and for this reason when I sat down to watch the Pilot I almost gave up in the beginning considering it to be another run of the mill Sleepy Hollow remake but what I saw was pretty fascinating. They seem to have only used The Horseman and Ichabod Crane and the original conflict that was at the heart of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is rendered just that, a legend with no mention anywhere. There are several elements that will allow for a thrilling plot, if played right. Although it seems like a lot of the elements in contemporary American horror will be incorporated, the good thing is that they never said anything about using the Irving classic to the detail. The underlying mysteries are far too many in number and as is the vogue, you are in for betrayals and cowardice and petty human nature making the drama enjoyable. While there are many biblical associations there is nothing new on the table. The undertones of witchcraft and the eternal fight between good and evil is there. Well, you need something.

Considering Len Wiseman's association with the Underworld franchisee I had some idea of what was in store for me. And he delivered.

The work by Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane is commendable as is Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills. At present the cast is small but you never know when new players enter the scene.

So while the fall brings with it many new shows those interested in mysteries and drama and have no aversion to a little gore might want to give this small series a try. After all its only 5 episodes. Sit back and enjoy.
