AND THE ABYSS GAZES BACK/DELIVERANCE In their efforts to enlarge the scale of the narrative, Sleepy Hollow has unwittingly sidelined two characters over the course of the autumn run of Season 2. Katrina has been relegated to Bram’s cottage and Captain Irving to the loony bin, respectively, getting about five lines per script. And then, in Deliverance, Katrina […]Read More Sleepy Hollow: Mid-Season 2 Review.
Previously on Sleepy Hollow: Root of All Evil. Early mid season episodes can be tough, both on the characters and on the set-up of the plot arc, so I figured it’d be best to let two or three weeks go by — watching week to week is great for suspense, but sometimes giving it two or more […]Read More Sleepy Hollow: ‘Go Where I Send Thee’ & ‘The Weeping Lady’
Previously on Sleepy Hollow: The Kindred. Ichabod isn’t confounded by Americans’ awakening consciousness (and conscience) in the struggle for marriage equality, thanks very much. Wearing hats indoors, however…Read More Sleepy Hollow: Root of All Evil.
Previously on Sleepy Hollow: This Is War. Things take a turn for the even more complicated with the arrival of the new Sheriff, Leena Reyes. She knew Jenny and Abbie as children, and their mother, of course. In short, she knows too much and yet not enough. With Jenny back in jail for illegal possession of firearms […]Read More Sleepy Hollow: The Kindred.
Previously on Sleepy Hollow: Bad Blood. I am so glad that this show is back on our screens, and I love, love, love this season premiere.Read More Sleepy Hollow: This Is War.
Previously on The Strain: Night Zero & The Box Last week, I complained that The Strain wasn’t getting to me the way I wanted it to, that it was bland and wasting its time on plotlines that only weighed it down and actually — ironically — made it harder to connect to these characters. This […]Read More The Strain: Gone Smooth (Episode 3) review
Maybe it’s just me, maybe I got off on the wrong foot with this show, but the last time I had so much trouble connecting with the characters on a show was when I first started watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and hey, they got a whole lot better at their game over time.Read More Does “The Strain” Look Sort of Bland to You?
Here’s the first official promo for Season 2. Now, what do we have here? War, is what. And apparently, the evil forces converging on Sleepy Hollow aren’t just turning up now, nor was it a coincidence that they made their first attempt during the Revolutionary War. As Ichabod states, “they have been planning this since […]Read More Sleepy Hollow Season 2 promo
What Penny Dreadful wants to do is recombine the well-known and beloved narratives of 19th-century Gothic fiction with the realities of Victorian London in 1891 — the time of the Great Exhibition, during the rise of spiritualism and Evolutionist Theory, the time when society was scared to death by ideas of social mobility, religious upheaval, […]Read More Penny Dreadful: Night Work (Pilot).
Previously on Dracula: Come to Die. This is a collective review of the last two episodes of Dracula, Four Roses and Let There Be Light. This is a mess. One huge, out-of-control mess. It’s motivations, plot-lines, and characterisations all over the place, and the writers don’t even seem to be trying to clean up after […]Read More “Death Is Coming.” — Dracula: the Complete Season Finale.
Previously on Sleepy Hollow: The Golem. This is a collective review of the last three episodes of Season 1, of which the last two aired in a double-feature finale this past Monday.Read More Sleepy Hollow: the Complete Season Finale.
Previously on Dracula: Servant to Two Masters. I hate to say it, but I’m honestly glad that there’s only two more episodes to this season, which is getting more and more ridiculous.Read More Dracula: Come to Die.
