This week’s episode is not only language history come alive, it’s also a huge step forward in Abbie and Ichabod’s friendship.
Pilot & Blood Moon
Based on the 1820 short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, this is a modern re-telling of the tale, featuring a 280-year-old Oxford professor, a badass woman of colour police lieutenant, and a headless asshole on a horse, also known as DEATH.
I already really liked the pilot, but as with every pilot, and as with every comically styled Gothic horror story, things can go both ways even after a cracking premiere episode. So I waited for the second ep to make my choice, and, well, here we all are. Follow me to Pocantico Grove under the cut.
Get a closer look at the characters, the actors who play them, and that thing called human spirit.
