That and the "no signal" clearly demonstrated the writers were thinking about some semblance of realism with Crane's position even if it was for comedy effect. Which made the fact they just let Crane walk away relatively easy and unscathed from his dirt bomb kind of lazy.

Even if they didn't bother to give him some external injuries from an exploding lid, they really missed comedy potential by not giving him temporary deafness for half of the episode. That would have made made his interactions with Jenny a bit more colorful instead of just basic plot progression.

That would have been clever. Also funny would have been if they had stayed a little bit more on the realistic side, let some kids wandering by find him, dig him up, and then play up the interaction with them as he tries to explain his predicament and his clothes to a couple of modern kids. He's really had no interaction with them during the run of this show, as I recall.

Honestly, how do they miss these opportunities? Why am I not a Hollywood dramaturge?

That would have been good too and if the show hadn't tried to squeeze the whole thing into one episode they might have had time. Unless the kids dug too slowly and Crane suffocated before he could be rescued, like the woman who was accidentally buried alive in Greece this week.

For some reason all the cliffhangers had to be resolved this week with no rest to stop and dig up the Ichabods. Maybe the grand season plan will be more evident next week and we can better judge if it was worth rushing through the story this week.

Great Fall Show

Great show especially around Halloween. I guess the show is somewhat based on their version of the Book of Revelations. Interested to see more and where they are going with this plot.

An animated suit of armor with a flaming sword and a headless soldier fighting a reanimated corpse with the headless soldier's head.

You just don't see that on television much these days.

The sheer crazy of having that scene on Fox in prime time just had me grinning at the screen. I really wish they had made The Kindred part of the Scooby Gang permanently as a zombie crime fighter and had him around every week trying to blend in at crime scenes. At least he's still around. I can see the flesh growing back and The Kindred returning with Abraham's head to be a more vocal member of the gang. It wouldn't be as crazy but it would give Neil Jackson the chance to play two different characters for some fun scenes.

Also happy to see Orlando Jones is still in the show and seems to be involved in a new story arc. Katrina on the other hand I feel is a complete waste of time. She spent most of the season as a damsel in distress and now after all the long and tedious chemistry-free attempts of Ichabod to rescue her she volunteers to stay behind.

Also, H.P. Lovecraft. Nice.

More funny with Ichabod this week and a reasonably good MotW that wasn't directly connected to the Evil Army.

With Jenny in prison I guess the Nathan Drake* character is going to become a new Sleepy Gang member? Given the secret roles and identities of the characters I'm expecting him to be a secret angel at this point.

Some good flash back and forward scenes this week. I enjoyed seeing Orlando Jones during the Apocalypse. Those scenes looked good too.

* I mean seriously, apart from the hair color he looks almost exactly the same!

Are they setting the "Nathan Drake" fellow up for a triangle between sisters?

I had hoped Caroline would become a recurring character.

I hope not, sad about Caroline, she seemed like she would've been a lot of fun. .

More fun than Katrina.

This week after their argument they seem to be pushing Katrina to the dark side and giving Ichabod a chance at another romance. Fine with me. Pity it couldn't have been Caroline.

Well if it makes Katrina more interesting than being held captive, I'll take almost anything else at this point.
