Sleepy Hollow on Fox - Page 8

post #211 of 216
I read that earlier today. Good news on both counts. I became a fan of Noble on Fringe even though I had seen him elsewhere (like Lord of the Rings)... but I hadn't seen the girl playing the "crazy" sister before. She has something of a star-to-be quality about her in the scenes she is in on this show.

The two-week dearth of programming gave me a chance to catch up with this, and I love it. Among other things, I'm glad that they brought all the main players into the fold quickly; I can't stand it when half of the characters wastes time hiding what's really going on from the other half (Grimm?) in every episode, so bringing Frank into the know quickly was a good move. I also appreciate that the characters actually trust each other, which seems particularly rare in shows such as these. Whenever characters get threatened by the enemy, the typical response is for them to hide it to create a faux sense of danger, but instead Frank tells everyone about the demon so they can protect Washington's Bible, and Crane tells Mills about Moloch's prophecy. Well done on both counts. Also, it has a theme song. This makes me happy. smile.gif They even dropped the procedural police elements within the first dozen episodes, which puts filler-fests like Fringe to shame. Combined with John Noble and Lyndie Greenwood joining the main cast next season, I can't wait. It may be more silly than scary, but it's too much fun to miss it either way.

If anyone does decide to get the DVD/Blu-ray of season 1, check the first two episodes to see if they retconned the "Revelations" gaffe in the dialogue. I noticed from the third episode that they dubbed Abbie's line to correct her into saying "Revelation" (Contgratulations! You beat Zero Hour!) in the "previously" segments, but you can see that they didn't re-shoot the scene, as her teeth still move to make the "s". biggrin.gif

To be fair to the first season of Fringe (on which I agree with you) if that first season has only been 13 episodes long they may have got to the good stuff much sooner too.

If short seasons means getting to the point sooner and it's a trend that picks up on network we get more shows with less filler. Almost Human take note. wink.gif

You might want to edit your post to "first few episodes" given that a dozen episodes of Sleepy Hollow was the entire season, but I got what you meant. wink.gif

Fringe was a crime drama for at least the first three seasons. Season finales and premieres visited more interesting premises, and then those elements got put on the back burner again to make room for more generic cop episodes. Sleepy Hollow has been worlds better in that regard, at least thus far. If the second season gets bumped to 20+ episodes, then I fear it will follow a similar path. frown.gif

It's already been confirmed it will only be 13 episodes as they feel it's the right #
