First: editors of tvfanatic, Can you please edit or remove comments like the ones ryan jones makes? They are very offensive and completely off topic.
Now, I think that the originals has found it's pace. Even though I didn't care for the baby in the beginning of the show, I'm starting to now, so thats a good thing.
Enough! I've had enough! I want the old Sam and Dean and Castiel back. No more breaking my heart everytime I see Cas, and most importantly, no more angel possesion! I didn't really like that from the start and now look where it got us. I'm fine with the whole angel story, but to me, the show is at it best when Sam and Dean (and Cas) are together.
I have just one tiny request. Please change Ichabod's clothing. It was nice to see details like how he sowed his shirt after it got torn by the monster, but come on. Just give the man a change of clothing. We'll still realise he's from a different era.
I know the writers want me to care about Katrina, but I just don't. I want more Abby-Ichabod and less flashbacks with Katrina. (though flashbacks an sich is not a problem of course).
ridiculous. I hoped this season would repair the wreck that was last season but that was too much to hope for. Sorry, but for now, I am done with this show. I'll just watch the originals.
I know that, but strangely, the interrogation room in episode one and the interrogation room in this episode looked the same to me.
It's a nice show so far. Stephen is a bit stupid and naieve, but i'm sure that will change. I like John, he seems the one real character. But hey, this is a new show and I will give it some time.
One big inconsistency though: In the first episode Jedikiah mentioned that in the interrogation rooms, their powers don't work, including telepathy. That is why stephens escape was so special. I looked it up, Jedikiah says: Are you trying to read my mind? You know your powers don't work here'.
This episode however, there was a telepathic conversation in the same room!
Ok, Having just vented my irritation on the middle enlgish topic I will say this: I like the show, I did not love this episode but on the whole I like this show.
I do need to ask for two things:
1. Give Ichabod some new clothing.
2. Writers, Please, please, please do your homework when incorprating history in your story. I'm not saying that everything needs to be completely historically correct, no movie or tv show is or ever will be. Simple things do need to be right though. There is for example a big, BIG difference between someone from mid to late 18th century and the early settlers in the 16th century. I will not go into that, but one more time, writers just, please do your homework.
That being said, my guess on katrina: Katrina is in purgatory because she traded her soul to save Ichabod.
Middle English was not spoken in the 16th century. Early modern English, which sounds almost like modern English, is being used at least by the end of the 15th century. That is what the boy should be speaking. Even if you don't know anything about philology or history, there is so much information on these things on the internet.
I don't mind some liberties with history in film and tv land, but this made the show look stupid. If you do not know that much about history and you want to use something like a different language, do your research!
I absolutely loved the angel-shadow with the broken wings!! Tracy was a bit over the top for me, I don't have to see her again really.
I still have the same issues as I had last week. As the review states: why does Ichabod still wear the same clothing? They spend a lot of time together, a bit of shopping wont be a problem.
Also, storywise there were indeed some hiccups. This is just a first season so I am willing to overlook that. As I have said before, most supernatural series need some time to establish their myths and stories.
The really good thing was that I really wanted more when the episode ended. Concider me hooked.
