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.
I like the show so far. Supernatural/fantasy shows tend to need a bit of time before they find the right pace for the story. I'm willing to wait for that with Sleep Hollow.
I do agree with a few remarks though. Yes, Ichabod needs a change of clothing. We know he is from a different time, there is no need to show us that with his clothing. Also, if that tunnel was closed off for many years, why was there a modern iron staircase? That implies that they only closed it a few years, mayby decade ago. If that is the case, all the revolutionary war stuff would be gone. I also hope that ichabod's wife stays in his dreams.
My biggest problem was that leonard actually did a shitty thing by hiding away from sheldon. No matter what, they are friends, and the least he could do was be honest.
More Isaac please!!! I loved the connection between Lydia and Scott, though I hope they will stay friends. I never cared much for Allison honestly but that is my opinion. More Derek would be nice too.
I am NOT on board with Danny and Lacey! It feels to forced to me. On the upside, Hello Chris Zylka indeed. I already like the potential his character has.
YES!! Great review! Puts all my thoughts about this episode into words.
My biggest problem so far? The toenail wolf. Seriously, her feet are not funny, or scary, or anything other than disgusting. somebody has to fix that, because I do not want to see it anymore!.
otherwise I agree with the review for the most part. On the other hand, this is an extended season, so I am going to give them some time. I miss the friendships in the show. Stiles is still my favorite character, though Danny and Isaac are getting closer. I think the whole pushing his pack away story for Derek is kinda predictable but well, ok I'll go with it. I don't care about the Alpha pack at all right now. Am I the only one who thinks that merging thing the twins do is just really weird?
